Smoothies are all the rage these days but not all smoothies are created equally.  It’s not just about ice, fruit, & liquid. Even though that would be a huge improvement over how most Americans start their day, we think you can do much, much better with a crash course in NUTRIENT DENSE SMOOTHIE MAKING! 

Read on to learn the why, what, how, when and who of advanced nutritional smoothie making.

At Fit 4 Maui, we are…. Serious Smoothie Makers.  We start with organic, plant-based, clean ingredients and then add in our super star line up if whole food supplements like Lifeguard Greens, Pure Plant Protein, Pure Omega Plus, and Pure Digestion Plus.

Why? Do smoothies really make that much of a difference? That all depends on what’s in it. Simply put, a well-crafted superfood smoothie is the very best way to get the maximum nutrients you need into your body while at the same time, avoiding anything that is not in your nutritional best interest. Your morning smoothie should contain key ingredients for a balanced, clean, tasty variety of what the body needs to thrive. 

What? So what do you put in your smoothie? Most health related conditions have one common component…

INFLAMMATION! 

Inflammation can be triggered by acute or chronic stress (physical, chemical) but is most commonly caused by deficiencies in your diet, rest and exercise routines. The Fit 4 Maui smoothie will decrease inflammation, stabilize blood sugar, and provide the fuel and nutrients needed for your busy, active lifestyle.  You will also be taking care of most common whole food deficiencies (protein, fiber, greens and omega-3 fats), by  properly combining whole foods and whole food supplementation. 

How? There are 4 key supplements that belong in a true super food smoothie.  We call this the Fit 4 Maui Core 4.  These 4 functional food formulas may be quickly combined to form a cost effective, nutritionally dense, meal replacement shake.  So what are the Core 4 Magic Ingredients?   

  • Lifeguard Greens
  • Pure Plant Protein
  • Pure Omega Oil (or NanOmega for vegans)
  • Pure Digestion Plus

We have tirelessly sourced the purest and most ethical products to feature in our store because to us, purity and potency is the key.  We are delighted to be aligned with Nutragen and their outstanding products.  Nutragen also makes Fit 4 Maui’s Lifeguard Greens.  This is the ultimate greens product that covers all your green, fruit and vegetable bases and so much more. It is the most complete 100% vegan, gluten-free, certified organic, super-food loaded green drink that is well worth the $1.67 a day.

When? So how often do you make your smoothie? Our recommendation based on years of personal experience and that of our clients is every single day or at least 5 days a week   Trust us…once you incorporate the super food smoothie into your morning, afternoon or evening routing, you’ll miss it if you skip it. Replace your current breakfast, lunch or dinner with our lit up liquid version and feel the difference intensive nutrient therapy can make.  It takes 30 days to make a habit so we recommend committing to 4 weeks of daily smoothie making.  Remember you can make one any time of day and it can replace a meal or be an amazing addition to what you are already eating.  You can also order out with confidence at your local smoothie bar  once you know the ins and outs of what needs to be in there. Keep in mind….a large smoothie at Whole Foods runs about $12 so you should practice making your own at home and leave the ordering out for travel or other situations where you cannot make your smoothie at home. 

Who? The Fit 4 Maui smoothie is for every body of every age.  Anyone who wants sustained energy without a crash, and a nutrient rich meal without a heavy full feeling. You’ll feel satisfied at a deep cellular level because you are giving your entire body what it needs to thrive.  Those who are overweight will loose cravings for sugary or empty calories and as a result, you will lose weight naturally and safely without even thinking about it.  Do you realize that most overweight people are ALWAYS hungry and NEVER satisfied? That’s because the calories they are consuming are by and large devoid of real nutrients, therefore the brain will continually signal “Hey i’m still hungry! You didn’t give me anything I really needed!” Remove the deficiency and the body is satisfied and happy and the cravings go away.

Underweight and undernourished people, like the elderly, busy Moms, teachers, flight attendants, athletes, truck drivers or literally anyone who skips meals or grabs whatever is handy will notice a HUGE difference by making this one simple change.  Starting your day with or having the ability to make our Fit 4 Maui ‘on the go’ smoothie will transform this demographic from depleted, worn down, too thin, & low functioning immune system to vibrant, energetic, healthy looking and feeling, super stars again.   

Remember, it’s super food for super humans on the go AND the #1 most important part of our Fit 4 Maui wellness program AND the quickest way to make a difference in your overall health.  You will notice vibrant, glowing skin, healthier hair and nails but even more importantly, more energy and a gradual, comfortable return to your ideal body weight.  Your internal organs will function more efficiently, and if you continue to gravitate towards a plant-based diet and keep your use of dairy and other animal products to a minimum, your health issues will dissipate and blood work will start reflecting this progress!
