Eating healthy is very hard to do in my opinion especially when you have a sweet tooth, which I occasionally have. Unfortunately the grocery stores make it very expensive to eat healthy and on top of that, even when you think it’s healthy it’s not, it’s usually filled with a ton of chemicals. 

Eating protein is huge when it comes to getting healthier and losing weight. Protein plays a very important role in the human body. The main function is building up, keeping up, and replacing tissues in your body. You could say protein is kind of the maintenance person keeping the body in tact. In fact, most muscles, organs and hormones are comprised of mainly protein. Your body uses the amino acids in protein to build lean muscle, which not only makes you stronger and more toned but also fries calories even when you’re not active. Protein is also responsible for making antibodies and hemoglobin which serve in delivering oxygen to your blood.

Here is an inexpensive, super easy, healthy snack that you will just fall in love with!! Healthy Protein Bars recipe with about 78g of protein per batch: 1 Cup Natural Peanut Butter and 2/3 Cup Honey melted down. Then add 1 Cup Oatmeal and 1 Scoop Chocolate ProFit Protein (available at http://www.beahealthyyou.com). Mix well and put in a pan and let it cool!! Yummy, healthy snack made in 5 minutes! Tastes almost like a no bake cookie but way healthier for you!!Healthy Protein Bars

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Greens?

Greens are an energizing, detoxifying, and alkalizing blend of 38 herbs and nutrient-rich superfoods that provides vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes you need for your best health. The nutrients found in Greens are at their highest naturally occurring, bioactive, bioavailable form to ensure maximum absorption by your body.

The natural blend of ingredients in Greens, including an acidity-fighting combination of magnesium and potassium, is designed to alkalize the body and restore pH balance. With restored alkalinity, your body your body experiences immune system health and increased energy. A cutting-edge probiotic helps you maintain that healthy balance by keeping your digestive system regular and toxins flowing out.

Raw fruits and vegetables are the best foods for combating acidity and restoring alkalinity in the body. Greens gives you the nutrients of 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables in every serving!

 

Why is Magnesium and Potassium important for alkalizing the body?

All fresh fruits and vegetables have important alkalizing benefits, but a diet of those highest in potassium is best for maintaining an alkaline, pH-balanced body. Each servings of Greens provides 260 mg of potassium in the form of potassium citrate, the strongest alkalizing agent found in citrus fruits. An acidic body is not only low in potassium, but likely low in magnesium as well, as magnesium is important for regulating your body’s potassium levels. When your body is unbalanced and overly acidic, it tries to counteract that acidity by releasing calcium and magnesium from the bones to promote an alkaline pH, which can lead to a magnesium deficiency within the body.

Greens’ alkalizing blend of potassium and magnesium helps to restore adequate supplies of both of these vital minerals that your body needs to maintain a healthy pH balance.

“Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food” Hippocrates

It’s super important to get your 8+ servings of fruits and veggies everyday! ”Stress, junk food, and fatty foods all cause an acidic environment and is a set-up for disease and aging.” There is compelling evidence that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. Greens will help alkalize the body. When your body is alkalized and balanced, it improves your immune system to help fight aging and many diseases. They also help the good bacteria in our body to fight infection.

Everyone knows they need more vegetables in their diets and leafy green ones are particularly good. Unfortunately, most of us still have problems getting one serving of greens a day, much less the recommended amounts. Here are some quick methods of eating more greens.

 

Tips to Start Eating More Greens

Green smoothies: Make up a regular fruit smoothie, with strawberries, bananas, papaya, etc. and then add a big handful of baby spinach. The smoothie will be a weird color, but it’s very healthy and with spinach you won’t even notice a change in taste. If you’re not a green fan, stay away from chard and other stronger tasting green food.

Pasta sauce: Next time you whip up spaghetti, add a cup or two of leafy greens to the tomato sauce. Blend before you serve and you’ll barely notice the extra protein and fiber.

Green eggs: Spinach, cabbage and lettuce all go very well with eggs. You can get away with nearly anything when it comes to scrambled eggs. Add some cilantro, spinach, or plenty of parsley to your eggs for an extra boost in taste and fiber.

Make a salad: Do you have a salad at every meal? If not, why not start whipping up a big salad at the beginning of the week and keeping it in the fridge for when you serve a meal. You won’t be tempted to skip because it’s already made. Add your favorite dressing and you’re good to go. For even more variety, use different types of lettuce, add in some spinach or even make a batch of coleslaw.

Find new recipes: There are hundreds of recipes that call for chard, kale or spinach. Try something new and you’ll probably find quite a few things that you enjoy.

It Works Greens: The Greens contains 38 herbs and nutrient-rich “super foods.” It’s like getting 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables. They help to alkalize, balance and detoxify the body to fight whatever comes your way. It’s a powder form and you take 2–4 scoops a day. You can mix it in juice or just water, it tastes that good! My kids love the GREENS!! You can get them at http://www.beahealthyyou.com.

Experiment: If you’ve always stuck to spinach, why not branch out a bit? Try some Chinese veggies. They tend not to be as dark green, but bok choi and the like are very good for you still. They also work very well in stir fry.

You can get more leafy greens into your diet with minimal effort. The benefits are tremendous. You’ll find that you have more energy, less sickness, less cravings, fewer mood swings and for women, less PMS.  The benefits are definitely worth making sure you get your 8+ fruits and veggies..

 

Have You Tried That Crazy Wrap Thing Yet?

I am sure you have been seeing and hearing about That Crazy Wrap Thing everywhere! It’s because It Works Global is growing very rapidly. We went from a $25 million dollar company in 2009 to a $500 million dollar company in 2013, to on our way to being a billion dollar brand this year! Why all the growth you ask, well I would have to say a lot of it is because we were featured at the Oscars and Emmys 3 times now, plus we were featured in Success From Home Magazine 3 times (which is found on news stands globally and in Barnes and Nobles), we have been featured on several news channels, and we were just featured in the Wall Street Journal!! Even though we are growing exponentially people are still very skeptical, which I can relate to because I was there once too and that is why I am writing this post. I want to give a little background on what this Crazy Wrap Thing is all about and answer some frequently asked questions. Hope this blog post helps some of you see the light about this amazing product because this company has changed my life!!! Here we go!

WHAT IS THAT CRAZY WRAP THING?
An EXCLUSIVE, herbal based body contouring wrap that TIGHTENS, TONES and FIRMS where applied to the skin. These wrap ingredients are known to minimize the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks too. Since your body is absorbing this cream that is tightening your skin, it’s essential to drink plenty of water. Hydration is key with this wrap. It is not water weight that you lose, the results are instant and permanently progressive.

HOW DO I APPLY THE WRAP?
It’s simple, so easy and designed to use at home. The wrap comes pre-packaged in a box of four. Take one wrap out of the package and apply the side with cream on it your stomach, thighs, arms, chin, neck, OR anywhere really, except don’t put it on your face we have a separate Facial wrap for that! Once you apply the wrap where you want it, rub all of the air bubbles out between your skin and the wrap; this helps the cream that is on the wrap to make better contact with your skin. Once you have done this, just use saran wrap, ace bandage or a tight-fitting garment to secure the wrap in place. Now relax, run errands, or anything else you would like to do for at least 45 minutes. You can do almost anything while wearing the wrap except you don’t want to sweat with it on because if you’re sweating that means the cream isn’t getting into the pores.

WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT WITH THE CRAZY WRAP THING?
You will see tighter, toner, firmer looking skin and many see a reduction in cellulite and stretch marks too. Remember a full treatment is the box of 4, wrapping the same area at least once a week. One box will last you a month. If you don’t see the results you had hoped for, it’s okay! You cannot expect to have your desired look in 45 minutes but this is a great start and you are well on your way to contouring your troubled area. Remember to drink water while wrapped and also over the next 72 hours as it continues to work that long even after you take it off. The more you wrap, the better your results will get.

HOW MUCH DO THE WRAPS COST?
$25 dollars per wrap if you purchase direct from a distributor. Although, there are other options that will help you save a ton of money!! You can purchase a box of four from the online store 2 different ways. As a retail customer a box of 4 is $99, OR you can check out as a wholesale loyal customer and get a box of four wraps for only $59!

DOES THE CRAZY WRAP THING RESULTS LAST?
The Crazy Wrap Thing helps to tighten tone and firm in a manner that produces lasting results. As is true with any weight loss or body contouring product, you can reverse the results you see for the applicator with poor eating habits and lack of healthy exercise.

WHAT WILL IT FEEL LIKE WHEN USING THE CRAZY WRAP THING?
While wearing the APPLICATOR you will experience a slight tingling cool, soothing sensation that lets you know instantly that the wrap is working. Some people may also feel a warm sensation, everybody’s body is different.

HOW LONG SHOULD I WEAR EACH WRAP?
You should wear each wrap for a minimum of 45 minutes. Because the applicator is a safe and naturally based product, it is safe to wear longer than 45 minutes. if desired. In fact, we’ve found that one of the easiest ways to use the applicator is to wear it all night long while you sleep. If it is your first time using that Crazy Wrap Thing, we recommend that you only leave it on 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural active ingredients.

HOW OFTEN CAN I USE THE CRAZY WRAP THING?
Use one Applicator every 72 hours. The all-natural ingredients continue to work for 72 hours after you have applied it, so you may continue to see progressive results over this time period. Each wrap is only to be used once so discard after use.

CAN I SELL THESE CRAZY WRAP THINGS?
