Glow & Go Bites- Chocolate Date
My one week program with Kait Hurley is underway and I’m thrilled with the response so far! As I mentioned in the post for the Get After It Bites, Kait’s workouts are my favorite and I use her App at least 3 times per week. There’s still time to join us. Sign up here for a FREE 14 day trial and participate in my week long program! There’s no risk as you can cancel at any time. Trust me, it’s SO worth trying. You’re going to fall in love with Kait and her classes.
Day 2 of the program: the Glow & Go class. This newer class has been a staple in my rotation. The combo of yoga + squats + jumps fires you up and leaves you the good kind of sore! (And, let’s face it, anything with “Glow” in the title is worth trying). After this strong workout, let’s keep the glow going. These delicious, nutrient dense energy bites are full of nuts, coconut oil, hemp seeds, oats, and cacao. Let me break down how each ingredient will help you glow from the inside out:
Nuts are beauty builders and the healthy fats in them help combat inflammation in the body.
Coconut oil with its medium chain triglycerides are another source of healthy fats that support an active metabolism.
Hemp seeds also have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging omega fatty acids (and protein and fiber!).
Oats contain the beauty mineral iron, which helps with healthy hair and nails, and the anti-aging mineral selenium, which is also important for thyroid health (aka metabolism health) and is necessary to produce anti-oxidants in the body.
Finally, cacao, an antioxidant and phytochemical powerhouse that can boost skin hydration and reduce redness.
You’re going to LOVE these nourishing bites. They are perfect after the workout, as a snack, or dunked in coffee! I can’t wait for you to try!
