Power Meal Workshop Tips & Menu
In order to THRIVE we need to be healthy, fit, energized and focused. We need the right sources of fuel to keep our immune system fighting, energy levels ready
and to provide building blocks to repair worn down muscles and cells.
We need vitamins and minerals to keep our defensive walls up and to sharpen our offensive tools.
Minerals and vitamins perform hundreds of roles inside the body. They are responsible for healing bones, keeping immune systems high, converting foods into energy to perform activities and repairing bodies when damaged.
We need daily healthy fats to clean our arteries, provide brain functioning energy, help develop our muscles, and to keep our blood healthy.
We need daily bio available carbohydrates for long lasting energy and protein to develop and heal our busy bodies.
