Cravings | Unhealthy Food made Healthy

Blogging for Fun Fridays, unhealthy foods made healthy!

Well this was a bit difficult for me as I eat a reasonably healthy diet. I'm allergic to chocolate, have been from a child. I do however crave Hot Cross Buns and Spicy Fruit Loaf. These two things are particularly difficult to make healthy, so I shall just leave these in the 'cravings' and 'treat food' bin.

What I can offer, is a healthy alternative to energy drinks. My favourite of all energy drinks is 'V' without the sugar, its bitter and really nice. It is expensive to drink all the time, the instant 'up' or 'buzz' you get is great, of course due to all that lovely caffine. The down side of course is when it wears off, I actually feel more tired than I did before I drank one to 'wake me up'.

The healthy alternative I have is Crave Energy Drink;

Simply mix one packet into approximately 1/2 - 1litre of pure water or whatever other beverage you prefer and drink slowly. You will love the taste and in just a few minutes you will feel the most incredible energy come over you. The energy will last about 4-6 hours on average.

No Headaches
Unlike the majority of energy drinks on the market Crave will not give you a headache. Crave is not loaded with large amounts of sugar (less than 1gram) or artificial sweeteners that causes headaches for many people..

Only 9 Calories

Calorie counting? And, who's not these days.....well with Crave you get only 9 calories per serving. What a way to count calories!

I also make for breakfast some mornings if I know I'm going to have a particularly hard day at work a;
Crave Banana Smoothie
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of low fat plain yoghurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 sachet of crave
  • handful of ice
Place all ingredients in a blender, blend till smooth. One delicious, healthy, power packed energy drink to set you off on your day.

I drink Crave daily, I take a 1.5litre drink bottle with only half a sachet of Crave, with me in to work and drink that all day. I have a cleaning business that I work myself, I find with Crave, it gives me the much needed energy that I need to see me through my day. I also drink just plain water as well to keep well hydrated.

Enjoy more energy today.

Advanced Russian Adaptogens

The strength of Limu Plus does not stop at fucoidan. This revolutionary elixir also contains advanced Russian adaptogens. Adaptogens are a rare class of plant first identified by Russian scientists. In the mid-1950s, the Russian government commissioned its Academy of Sciences to create a product to enhance human performance.

The product had to accomplish three objectives:

  • Be safe and non-toxic to the body

Superior Absorption: Aloe Vera & GreenTea

To be effective, a health beverage must be readily absorbed by the body. One of the best “conductive vehicles” to increase effectiveness in the body is aloe vera. The International Aloe Science Council (IASC) points out the long, illustrious history of the semi-tropical plant called aloe vera. It dates from ancient antiquity and has been mentioned throughout history for its beauty-enhancing, health and medicinal properties.* Aloe vera contains more than 70 essential ingredients and more than 200 biologically active compounds. These include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, proteins, polysaccharides (called the master molecule) and biological stimulators.

Along with ACTIValoe, Vitamark adds Green Tea and Taheebo Tea—some of nature’s strongest antioxidants—to Limu Plus. These two ingredients increase the antioxidant properties of Limu Plus while insuring the bioavailability of nutrients.

The Highest Production Standards

To create a quality product like Limu Plus demands the highest standard of raw materials and manufacture. Working with one of the leading manufacturers of high quality nutritional supplements in the world, Vitamark delivers the best.

Vitamark’s Limu Moui is harvested by hand to insure that only the best plant material is selected and the process is friendly to the Tongan ecosystem. It is then carefully processed to preserve its beneficial essence. Our adaptogenic plants are also selectively harvested at an exact point during the growing season to insure peak potential. Then, to harness the potency, experts with more than thirty years of experience process the plants.

These ingredients are formulated under the legendary production standards of our manufacturer using state-of-the-art technology. That’s why Limu Plus is the best of nature and science combined.

Great Taste

Limu Plus tastes great. You will look forward to drinking it every day for optimal health. Limu Plus is a breakthrough product like no other.

My Testimonial

I'm a great fan of this product. I've being taking this now for several months and the difference it has made to me internally and externally for me is great. I like to trial products for a period and then stop using them to see what impact the products really have had on my system.

I have found myself of late to be physically exhausted. Every muscle in my body ached. Since I've introduced Limu Plus, I'm not as physically achey, I have more energy, I sleep well, therefore wake up feeling like I have slept well.

As per my regime of trialing, I stopped taking Limu Plus, it only took a few days for me to feel exhausted again. So for me this is really a no brainer.

I also have two teenage boys, you know how fussy they can be, sometimes worse than pre-schoolers when it comes to taking something 'foreign'. Both my boys take it, like it and can see the difference for themselves in their skin and both aren't as lethargic as they were...perfect solution for those parents out there that are so over their lack lustre, lethargic teens.

You too can feel the benefits of Limu Plus.
