While some of us may dream of a day when we can tend to our organic gardens, pick farm-fresh eggs, and juice everything green from scratch, that doesn’t exactly work when you’re on the run. But just because you have a fast life doesn’t mean you have to compromise with fast food. Here are some of our favorite healthy options for an on-the-go lifestyle.
The Super Elixir
You’ve heard about the benefits of an alkaline body, but how do you get there? Our favorite alkalizing greens supplement is WelleCo’s The Super Elixir, which boasts it will boost immunity, brighten skin, reduce inflammation and increase energy, among the other benefits provided by the 45-nutrient blend.
Mix two teaspoons in eight to 16 ounces of water for a morning zing that will turn back the hands of time and counts for multiple servings of healthy veggies. It may not turn you into a supermodel like the company’s founder, Elle McPherson, but you’ll sure feel like one.
By the time you feel thirsty you’re already dehydrated, a condition that not only strains every bodily function but also robs you of your energy. It even reduces mental acuity and attention, so much so that you’re almost driving under the influence—of lack of water! Stay on top of your water consumption with H20Pal Smart Water Bottle that not only keeps track but also reminds you when it’s time to drink more water.
