You’ve all heard me say how important greens are – I mean, we pretty much get most of the nutrients we need from those dark leafies! But what if you just don’t like the taste of greens?

I know, it’s a problem for some people. Others just want some variety…or to indulge their sweet tooth now and then. This Manna Feast is a super alternative. It’s packed with a ton of fruits, berries, land and sea vegetables like elderberry, carrots, sweet potato, and other nutrients like chlorella and probiotics.

You can put a couple of scoops into a glass of water and get a refreshing cold drink that’s sweet for your tastebuds…and your body.

Renee's Raw Chocolate - 2 Pack

 Alright, I know I have a lot of favorites, especially for snacking, but… this chocolate is seriously THE BEST I’ve ever had!

A lot of Raw Chocolates are super sweet or they have too much coconut oil or they have a weird aftertaste. Renee’s Raw Chocolates are seriously the best I’ve ever tasted! We ran a special on these when I first started with open sky and we sold out. We made it even more affordable and lowered the price of these so order them now because these will definitely not last!

Packed with goji berries for antioxidants, vitamin C, amino acids, and minerals, they’re a chocolate lover’s healthy dream come true!

Regenerating Skin Spray and Immune System Regenerator

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Regenerating Skin Spray and Immune System Regenerator

Even when we’re eating raw and healthy, supplements can go a long way. They help neutralize toxins, balance your ph levels, and deliver tons of good stuff to your body like fulvic minerals, which are known for their cellular regeneration properties. 
I’m a big fan of getting nutrients in however we can, and these Regeneration USA products are a quick and easy way to keep your body running at its best.  The Immune System Regenerator strengthens your immune system and can even help with weight control (because they detoxify you). The Regenerating Skin Spray contains essentials amino acids that your skin needs to look its best, and while also helping to restore, regain and replenish those lost fulvic minerals.  

To me, it just makes sense to give your body as much health-boosting energy as possible. If you’re going to take supplements, they might as well be top-notch, so these are absolutely the ones to go for!

Hemp Protein, Hemp Seeds and Hemp Oil special!

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

 This was one of the first specials that I ran on opensky, but since people love hemp and use a lot of it, I wanted to run this again. Make sure you order this quickly as this special will run out fast. It’s a popular item!

Remember, you have to be signed up to receive my specials. Signing up is easy and free!

One of the biggest questions I get asked about going raw is how to get enough protein. We all know that dark green leafies are the highest source, but what about when you’re on the run?
If I can’t sit down to a full meal or when I just want a boost, hemp products are my go-to quick and nutritious solution.
You can make a delicious smoothie with hemp powder (a great way to quickly replenish your muscles after a heavy workout!). Sprinkle hempseeds on top of salads, raw ice cream, even brownies. Prep a tasty salad dressing in advance using hemp oil to ensure you’re getting those all-important omega oils. 
All three are easy ways to power up and feel great!

Here’s the recipe for my favorite power boost smoothie recipe:

  • Nutiva hemp powder
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Coconut water
  • (optional: kale for a little extra green power)
    Combine in a blender and enjoy!

Brads Raw Chips!

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

This weeks super special! Brads Raw Chips!

I’m a snacker. That’s all I do is snack. I don’t really eat breakfast, lunch and dinner – I tend to graze throughout the day whenever I’m hungry. This way of eating works for me really well, because when you’re eating raw, you digest quicker so you need to eat more often.

Even back when I was bodybuilding, I’ve always felt better eating six small meals and snacks throughout the day. When you eat three big meals, your metabolism rises and crashes. But this way you keep your metabolism stoked all day, so you have more energy and burn more calories. One of my new go-to snacks of choice are Brad’s Chips.

The crackers are great because they’re crunchy and have really distinct flavors. And the kale chips are fantastic. Let’s be honest: we can all make kale chips at home in the dehydrator, but do you ever really find the time?

Kale is so good for you, but how often can you really get it in? These are great to have on hand instead of waiting five hours to dehydrate. If you’re new to this kind of eating, give the snacking system a try. I think you’ll be surprised to see how much energy you have – and how easily you lose weight!
