Join the Smoothment- Navitas Naturals Superfood Giveaway

Posted Dec 30 2011 12:00am
Good Afternoon and Happy Friday!

I hope everyone is having a good day and is gearing up for the New Year.  I am so excited because I received a really fun package in the mail the other day from one of my favorite brands- Navitas Naturals!

Superfoods - Pure and Simple Our food philosophy is simple: Nutrient rich whole foods are best produced using organic agricultural methods with minimal processing. Focusing on both food safety and nutrition, we handle our premium superfoods with care. This includes third party testing for all our products. Our facility is Organic, Kosher and GMP/HACCP Certified. In addition, we utilize methods such as freeze-drying and low temperature processing to ensure maximum nutrition and safety.

I squeeled with delight when I opened the package to see all these awesome Navitas Naturals Power Snacks along with some Chia Powder and Raw Cacao Powder.  Wow!  What a great way to kick off the New Year.

The best part is that Navitas Naturals has offered to give one of my reader's a bag if Navitas Naturals organic super foods as well.  Yah!

Navitas Naturals is kicking off a Smoothment Campaign for the New Year encouraging people to make a habit of making one nutritious smoothie a day.  Now I have to admit that it took me awhile to get on the smoothie bandwagon because I like to "eat" my food but turned a corner a while back when I started making "green monster" smoothies loaded with super foods and felt completely energized after drinking them.  I can't seem to get enough of smoothies now and I am creating quite a repertoire of smoothie recipes.

smoothies: a powerful daily habit The New Year is the perfect time to start a fresh commitment to health, and it doesn’t have to be hard. That’s why Navitas Naturals created the Smoothment: a motivating initiative to help people get a healthy and energized start to the New Year via the blender. This week-long program features easy and delicious 60-Second Smoothie Video recipes and exclusive tips for making smoothies full of health-giving function. Whether enjoyed in place of breakfast, lunch or snack, smoothies are a simple, ideal tool for nutritional change. Upgrade the nutrition of just one meal per day and experience a revitalizing jumpstart towards long-lasting health and vitality.

Today's smoothie was a Coconut Cherry Chia Smoothie and it was absolute delicious.

Coconut Cherry Chia Smoothie
1 cup coconut water 1 frozen banana 1/2 cup frozen cherries 1 tbsp Navitas Naturals Sprouted Chia Powder 1 scoop protein powder of choice (I used Sunwarrior Vaniila Protein Powder) 1 cup fresh spinach Garnish with Hemp Seeds
Combine above ingredients in Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  Garnish with Hemp Seed.

Navitas Natural Chia Powder
Long used by the Aztecs as a staple food along with corn and beans, chia seeds are enjoying a tremendous resurgence in the health food community due to their impressive nutritional profile. Navitas Naturals offers an exciting new way to enjoy chia seeds: in a sprouted, finely milled powder. Inherently full of healthy omega fats, protein, antioxidants and dietary fiber, the small chia seed’s nutrition is even more enhanced by the process of sprouting. This germination of the seeds increases the nutritional profile and enzyme content, and allows the food becomes more easily digested and assimilated within the body. Simply mix a spoonful of this nutritious mildly nutty powder in with oatmeal or yogurt, or enjoy as a gluten-free flour substitute. Any way you use it, a little chia has a lot to offer.
As many of you already know, I am a huge fan of Chia Seeds and pretty much eat them daily either in my oats or smoothies so was super excited to try this Sprouted Chia Powder.
