A: Girl you know my Mexican self loves salsa. I say a tbsp of fresh salsa here and there won’t hurt. If you are curious, it would fall under the purple category.
A: Yes sea salt is fine. If you’d like a recommendation, Himalayan salt is even purer than sea salt. Table salt contains none of the trace minerals that make salt good for us. Himalayan salt containing up to 84 natural minerals and elements.
A: Stick to your recommended Fix daily protein portions and you will be fine. When it comes to powdered protein sources, I always stick to and recommend plant based proteins. I can’t say much about Teras but I can say A LOT about Sun Warrior.
A: Yes, fruit and anything else added into your shake (including almond milk) count towards your portions.
A: If it’s more veggie based use the green container to measure it out. If it’s more fruit based, use the purple. If it’s a mixture of both, use 1 purple & 1 green. [post blending] If you want to satisfy 2 portions of your veggies with one juice, measure out 2 containers of liquid.
A: It doesn’t really have a category as it is an additive. BUT 1 teaspoon of honey is about 10 calories. If you stick to one a day, you’ll be okay.
A: I like to think of this one as a free. It’s only 20 calories per serving. If anything it will help you burn even more calories during your workout.
A:I typically use coconut oil 2 ways. 1. As a spray for cooking. 2. For oil pulling at least 3x per week.
A: Sure I’ll have some ideas up on the site soon [I’m currently eating vegan]. Till then, this might help http://youtu.be/0O7zS67GGjY
A:Yes, it’s TOTALLY safe, remember, Shakeology is natural BUT it’s not recommended to replace more than two meals per day for an extended period of time.
A: Yes that is totally fine. Ray & I each have alternating flavors and like to keep things varied
A: Yes Fruits and anything else blended into your Shakeology (including almond milk) counts towards your recommended portions.
A: It can be done but I don’t recommend it. Shakeology is such a nutritionally dense product. Heating it will alter the nutritional composition and lower it’s nutritional value.
A: Either or based on preferences & time. Try them both out to find out what you like. Personally I LOVE it blended & VERY frothy. My fave liquid ratio is 8oz water, 4oz almond milk and I typically blend it with 3-4 cups of ice.
A: Yes, I HIGHLY recommend drinking it for breakfast OR for your AM snack ESPECIALLY during your first round. This will kick start your day on a nutrient dense note and fuel you for the entire day. This means ENERGY! Plus it’s true, it tastes best immediately after making it.
A: Yes, you can have Shakeology whenever you want. I typically recommend drinking it anytime from A.M – Lunch. This will help you get started right first thing in the morning.
A: Flat Abs & Barre legs are supplemental workouts [fix ultimate] and can be purchased here http://bit.ly/1BKFyoX
A: I HIGHLY recommend investing in a foam roller or in this particular case, a lacrosse ball. This type of self-myofascial release will release muscle tightness or trigger points.
