Raw food is the best way to have the cleanest energy. We take so much care about what kind of fuel we put in our car, what kind of oil. We care about that sometimes more than the fuel that we’re looking at putting in our bodies. It’s cleaner burning fuel.”

The Mysterious Healthy Plants Explained

Okay, maybe you haven’t even heard the word adaptogens, so I’m going to school you a bit if you haven’t heard of these magical plant compounds. Adaptogens are compounds found in certain plants that magically figure out what your body needs most and then delivers it.

According to Dr. Frank Lipman, the founder of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in NYC, adaptogens regulate your adrenal system.  This system manages your body’s hormonal response to stress.
In a nutshell, incorporate these adaptogens into your healthy lifestyle and you can help fight fatigue, improve your focus and reduce anxiety. Adaptogens can also have a calming effect.  Are you ready to find out what magical plants are considered adaptogens? Here are four (but this list isn’t all-inclusive so you might want to research adaptogens further) super healthy adaptogens and how they improve your health:

    1. Ashwagandha  – Weird name but this super plant was shown in a study in the Indian Journal of Psychological Medicine to significantly lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol when just 300 milligrams were taken twice a day for two months. Research also shows it helps people shed pounds likely due to elevated levels of cortisol having been linked to belly fat.
    1. Schisandra – this is actually a berry and research shows it can do everything from increase exercise endurance to improve concentration. This would be a good one to consume if you are participating in a marathon or are working on a major project at work or school.
    1. Corydyceps – this is a type of mushroom and is a favorite among athletes. It can help you use oxygen more efficiently so that your muscles are able to work harder for longer. You might look for a supplement that contains this mushroom if you want to get more out of your workout.
  1. Rhodiola – this compound can help you stay strong. It also has anti-inflammatory effects and can help you recover faster after a tough workout. Many people combine this supplement with Schisandra to increase their athletic performance so it would be a good choice for anyone participating in a marathon.

I think we can all benefit from having less stress in our lives and if something is completely natural and plant-derived why not give it a try. You can find these super plants in various supplements and in some drinks such as Shakeology. It contains Ashwagandha, Schisandra and Cordyceps in this healthy protein drink.  It’s one that I drink on nearly a daily basis. Shakeology also contains the adaptogens Astragalus, Maca, Maitake and Reishi.  If you want more information on how those help you, just ask me.

I would also be happy to place an order of Shakeology for you to try for one month and then see how you feel. For me it has really increased my energy helped my cravings for sweets and I have felt calmer since I started consuming adaptogens.

Whatever form of these super healthy adaptogens you try, I hope they bring you a little bit of Zen!

Healthy Regards,

Healthy 4 Life’s
Healthy Dessert Recipe

I made this Pineapple Whip for Easter and it takes exactly like the kind you buy at Disneyworld. Only 3 ingredients and it’s super healthy!

    • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored, cut into chunks and frozen (6.5-7 cups)
    1. Peel, core and cut one fresh ripe pineapple into chunks. Spread chunks on a lined baking sheet and freeze until solid (for at least 24 hours).
    1. Place frozen pineapple chunks in a food processor together with ½ cup of coconut milk. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Scrape down the sides and add more milk as needed to achieve a smooth consistency.
    1. Taste the pineapple whip and add sweetener to your liking. If the pineapple wasn’t super ripe and sweet, I will add a little honey, maple syrup or agave. Process once more to incorporate the sweetener.
  1. To achieve a soft serve-like look, fit a piping bag or ziploc with a large open star tip. Fill the pineapple whip into the bag and pipe into serving bowls in a swirling motion.
Prep Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes |  Makes 4-6 servings
