Kids and Omega 3 NutraCleanse™

Ensuring your child receives a healthy daily dose of nutrients in her diet can be a daunting task. Generally speaking, kids tend to have very particular appetites, tastes, and opinions, and it doesn’t usually support a large serving of greens or grains!

We have mentioned this before (see here): the importance of a healthy diet rich in omega fatty acids and fibre is imperative for kids’ growing bodies and brain development.

Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ can help!

Our dry food product is a unique formulation of flaxseeds and mostly organic (locally sourced) ingredients to provide an excellent source of fibre and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. You can easily sneak Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ into many kid-approved meals and snacks so they can’t taste the healthiness (heaven forbid!) or have any reason to turn it down.

Here are 3 ways to sneak Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ in your child’s snacks and meals today:

Smoothies

Smoothies are a favourite snack choice for kids; probably for the slushy-like, fruity flavours that mask the taste of spinach and other healthy ingredients that were possibly added.

They’re great, because you can throw in whatever ingredients you have on hand, add some liquid, add some ice, and that’s it! There are tons of great recipes for smoothies out there that your kids will enjoy, and it’s so simple to increase the nutritional value of the smoothies by adding ⅓ cup of Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ to them.

Here’s a smoothie recipe from Angela Liddon (author of Oh She Glows) that mimics a chocolate milkshake:

Cheerful Chocolate Smoothie

Add to blender:

  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • ¼ cup avocado
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Very small pinch of fine-grain sea salt
  • 4-6 pitted medium Medjool dates, to taste
  • 4-6 ice cubes

Now add 1/3 cup of Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ (and possibly a splash more almond milk if it’s too thick), put the lid on the blender, and blend on high for 30 seconds. Serve immediately.

Kids’ Oatmeal

Kids love the soft, gooey goodness of oatmeal and it makes for a great breakfast or snack. Avoid buying the prepackaged and processed stuff though; you’ll want all the nutritional benefits of making up your own batch from scratch.

Our tried and true recipe for oatmeal is always a hit with the kids: add 1/3 cup oatmeal to 1 cup cold water in a pot with a dash of salt. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Turn heat down and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add 1/3 cup Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ and stir. Empty into bowl, and serve with honey and milk.

Baking for Kids

Do your kids like cookies? (Silly question, right?)

Our product can be hidden into the goodness of all kinds of baked goods. This is a great one for kids, because you can include them in the process of baking, and talk to them about the importance of following recipes and measuring out ingredients. Kids love to help out in the kitchen, so go ahead and start them while they’re young!

To make a healthier version of whatever you happen to be baking, just add Omega 3 NutraCleanse™! All you need to do is portion out some of the flour. If the recipe calls for one cup of flour, you can use ⅔ cup of flour and ⅓ cup of Omega 3 NutraCleanse. Give it a try in your next batch of chocolate chip cookies or banana muffins!

Sneaking our product into meals and snacks everyday will provide your children (and you) with essential nutrients that your body needs to stay healthy. To learn more recipe ideas or find out where you can purchase our product, feel free to visit our website.

Fight Back-to-School Stress with These Foods

If you or someone in your family suffers from back-to-school stress and anxiety, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s very common. And not just for students—many parents report feeling stressed out during this time of year, too.

For kids, back-to-school can be stress and anxiety provoking for several reasons, including the imminent social and academic pressures, changes in schedule, and new routines.

Kids won’t often vocalize these feelings of stress, but since our body (particularly our gut) is so in tune with our emotional wellbeing, stress often manifests itself into a tummy ache for kids.

So what can we eat to help calm our gut and mind at the same time? Here are 10 foods that are known to be stress-reducing:

Asparagus

Depression has long been linked to low levels of folic acid, and one food that boosts tons of this mood-enhancing nutrient is asparagus.

Blueberries

Just a handful of nutritional powerhouse blackberries pack a powerful punch of antioxidants and vitamin C, making them incredible stress-busters. When we’re stressed, our bodies need vitamin C and antioxidants to help repair and protect cells.

Avocado

Feelings of anxiety may be rooted in a B vitamin deficiency, since we need B vitamins for healthy nerves and brain cells. Luckily, avocados are rich in stress-relieving B vitamins. Also, they’re super high in monounsaturated fat and potassium, which help lower blood pressure.

Win-win!

Milk

Everyone knows that a glass of warm milk before bed is a time-tested remedy for insomnia. That’s because milk is high in antioxidants, vitamins B2 and B12, protein, and calcium. Milk can create a calming effect by lowering blood pressure, while the potassium in milk can help relieve muscle spasms triggered by feeling tense.

Oranges

There’s a reason orange juice is said to be part of the breakfast of champions: Vitamin C is another vitamin known to lower blood pressure and cortisol, which is a stress hormone.

Almonds

Almonds are rich in vitamins B2 and E, which are both stress-reducing vitamins. These nutrients help bolster the immune system during times of anxiety and stress.

Salmon

A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids helps keep cortisol and adrenaline from spiking when you’re feeling tense. Since salmon is one of the very best sources of omega-3s, it’s a great choice for a couple of back-to-school dinners.

Turkey

That sleepy feeling you get after eating Thanksgiving dinner is due to the amino acid tryptophan found in turkey. Tryptophan signals the brain to release the feel-good chemical serotonin, which promotes calmness and even tiredness. Try making turkey soup for dinner and then packing your child leftovers for lunch the next day.

Spinach

Leafy greens aren’t usually most people’s idea of comfort food, but spinach can have a major comforting effect. It’s packed with magnesium, the mineral that helps regulate cortisol levels and promote feelings of well-being.

Oatmeal

Oatmeal is another food that helps get the calm-inducing hormone serotonin flowing. Choose the big old-fashioned oats that require cooking instead of instant oatmeal.

Why?

Coarse oats are less processed and way higher in fiber, so they take longer to digest (meaning their calming effect lasts longer).

Consuming these foods on a regular basis for the first few weeks of back-to-school would be very helpful in keeping stress at bay. And since stress can often cause constipation (more blood flow to the brain equals less in the digestive system), we’re here to help with that, too.

Omega 3 NutraCleanse®

Just 1/3 cup Omega 3 NutraCleanse® once per day can help alleviate constipation, due to it’s main ingredient: ground flax seed. Since flax seed is super high in fibre, Omega 3 NutraCleanse® works really well in aiding temporary digestive issues like constipation. To order online, visit nutracleanse.biz.

Happy back-to-school! Keep calm, and eat on.

Create Healthier Eating Habits in 4 Simple Steps

It’s not uncommon to feel run down every now and then, but no one wants to feel this way all the time. Most of us work too much while trying to juggle other commitments to keep up with our daily lives. Feeling chronically tired can cause unnecessary stress and compromise your overall health and immune system.

With mindful action, energy levels are something that you can control with healthy food!

Being mindful of your diet is an easy way to improve your energy levels and prevent illness. And we’re not just what you eat, but how much and when.

Here are 4 things to keep in mind when it comes to diet for increasing energy:

Eat Clean, Healthy Food

A healthy balanced diet is key to boosting your energy. Focus on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and beans every day. (The closer to nature, the better.). Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ is very high in fiber and has net 2 grams of digestible carbs per 30 gram serving (2 tablespoons). It’s also a source of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, so is an excellent food product to help boost your energy!

Avoid overly processed foods, unhealthy fats and high sugars. Although you will feel a boost of energy after eating such foods, it won’t last long as these foods stimulate the production of serotonin—a brain chemical that makes you feel tired and sluggish.

Eat a Balanced Breakfast

As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Don’t limit your morning meal to only a piece of toast or a small smoothie. Start with a balanced breakfast to really rev your engines for the day, so go ahead and have both! High antioxidant fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein are an essential way to get going.

smoothies for energy

Eat Less, More Often

Portion control is very important to consider when it comes to ways to eat to boost your energy. Eat enough healthy food so that you are comfortably full but not stuffed! The brain has few energy reserves of its own, so by eating lighter and more frequently (every 2-3 hours), we keep it fueled. Nuts and fruit are a great snack in between meals.

Drink More Water

Be mindful that caffeine is a stimulant and will give you only a temporary energy boost, so you need to watch your coffee intake in the mornings to avoid that inevitable afternoon crash! You should also avoid caffeine late in the day, as you may have negative side effects when it comes to your nighttime sleep pattern.

The sedative effects of alcohol is also something to avoid if you want to increase your energy levels. Water, on the other hand, is essential for energy as it carries the nutrients to our cells which feed the brain. Fatigue is often linked to lack of fluids.

Good luck, and remember that Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ is made up from a unique formulation of natural, mostly organic ingredients, providing you with all kinds of goodness including energy and vitality!

Staying Hydrated this Summer

The dog days of summer have arrived! With radio and television warnings already circulating about not leaving kids and pets in warm vehicles, it makes us wonder what everyone’s strategy is for staying healthy and hydrated.

Here are 5 ways to stay hydrated this summer:

Eat Fruit

Why? Because it’s full of water—just like you! Fruit (especially watermelon) is made of mostly water, so every piece you eat is helping you to stay hydrated.

Fruit salad and a glass of water is a great breakfast idea, and it starts you off with proper hydration for the day.

Drink Tons of Water

Obviously. But how much water do you think you drink? We bet its less than what you actually drink. An effective way to measure your water consumption, is to fill a refillable bottle with water and make sure you get at least 3-4 refills per day.

Snack on Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are called super foods for a reason—they’re packed full of fibre and protein, and they’re also great for maintaining hydration levels! When mixed with water, chia seeds absorb up to nine times their weight—which means you stay healthy and hydrated for longer. It also means your digestive system stays hydrated, which, as we all know, means better bowel movements.

Cut Back on Alcohol

This one’s a no-brainer, right? Alcohol dehydrates, and we want to hydrate. Not the opposite. But sometimes it’s hard to refrain during the glorious months of summer, so if you are going to have a drink or two, try to stick to drinks that contain high levels of water.

Examples? Gin or vodka and soda or water, mixed with fresh herbs and citrus.

Seek Shade

While seeking the shade may not actually be adding water to your body, it does help slow or stop the perspiration that happens when we’re in the direct sun. Since perspiration leads to dehydration, this little tip helps a lot.

Enjoy your summer, stay hydrated, and don’t forget to add a little Omega 3 NutraCleanse to your fave foods. By adding both water and extra fibre to your daily diet this summer, you’ll stay hydrated while also slimming down and improving your digestive health.

Almond Butter Salad Dressing

This salad dressing is to die for, and is fantastic both as a dressing and as a dipping sauce for such goodies as veggie salad rolls, spring rolls, etc. It’s even great as a spread on wraps and sandwiches, if you want to omit the water. (This just makes it thicker, like a spread.)

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup almond butter

  • 1 small thumb ginger, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup

Who doesn’t love a great breakfast parfait?! These are fabulous in the summer, because they’re light and loaded with fibre and protein.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, divided
  • 1 cup assorted, fresh berries
  • ½ cup granola
  • ¼ cup Omega 3 NutraCleanse™

Method

Stir Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ into granola and set aside. Using two small mason jars, layer the yogurt and berries then top with granola mixture. If you’d prefer flavoured yogurt (such as vanilla or strawberry) over plain, then make that substitution! Enjoy.

Do Low-Fibre Diets Cause Constipation?

Low-Fiber Foods and Constipation

Constipation caused by low-fiber foods is something that affects more than 100 million North Americans. It puts a major damper on all aspects of our everyday lives, from weight gain to fatigue to serious disease. Increasing our daily fiber intake is the key to combating constipation. We can do this by swapping foods we currently consume that contain low amount of nutrients (chips, pop, candy, confections, dairy, etc.) for foods that are very fiber-rich, including fruit, vegetables, beans, whole grains, flax and chia seeds, and Omega 3 NutraCleanse™.

The Key to Overcoming Chronic Constipation

Think of fiber as a broom, and its job is to sweep clean your intestinal tract (especially your colon). If you don’t get enough fiber (or enough water to assist the fiber), your intestinal tract will never be clean. This leads to a build-up of not only old food and waste, but also of unhealthy bacteria.

When you introduce high-fiber foods to your diet, you clean your body from the inside out, and allow friendly bacteria to grow and eventually be able to combat the ill effects of the built-up harmful bacteria in your gut, such as E. coli.

Here are two quick reference lists for you that show which foods are low-fiber foods, and which ones are high-fiber foods:

Low-Fiber Foods

  • Meat
  • Dairy
  • Eggs
  • Processed foods
  • Fried foods
  • Fast foods
  • Commercial baking
  • Candy
  • Soda and juice

High-Fiber Foods

  • Vegetables (beets, carrots, leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, artichokes)
  • Fruit (oranges, watermelon, apples, pears, figs, dates, prunes)
  • Beans
  • Legumes
  • Whole, sprouted grains (quinoa, steel-cut oats, etc.)
  • Flax and chia seeds
  • Omega 3 NutraCleanse™

Omega 3 NutraCleanse™ is a great way to incorporate more fiber into your diet, because you can simply add 1/3 cup to any smoothie, soup, stew, oatmeal, or anything else you like. You don’t have to suffer from chronic constipation!

Foods that Fight School Year End Stress for Kids

If you or someone in your family suffers from end of school year stress and anxiety, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s very common. And not just for students—many parents report feeling stressed out during this time of year, too.

For kids, the end of the school year can be stress and anxiety provoking for several reasons, including the imminent academic pressures, changes in schedule, and new routines.

Kids won’t often vocalize these feelings of stress, but since our body (particularly our gut) is so in tune with our emotional wellbeing, stress often manifests itself into a tummy ache for kids.

So what can we eat to help calm our gut and mind at the same time? Here are 10 foods that are known to be stress-reducing:

Happy June! Keep calm, and eat on.

 

Do You Get Enough Fibre?

The topic of fibre is everywhere, from cereal commercials promising extra helpings of psyllium, to doctors advising we eat more of it during annual check-ups.

It sounds like a good thing, but why?

Fibre is a really big deal when it comes to digestive health. Think of it as a broom for your intestinal tract: it saves the day by sweeping clean your colon, which is imperative for a healthy bowel. Since overall health really begins in this area of the body, it’s incredibly important that we keep it clean and working well.

So, how do you get more of this amazing fibre into your diet?

Fruit and Veggies

Fruit and veggies are a great source of both soluble (the meat of the plant) and insoluble (the peels) fibre. They help create healthy bowel movements, and give your body a massive injection of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Corn, because you can’t break it down to digest it very well, is actually a great source of insoluble fibre—it stays intact, but sweeps everything out of the body with it.

Whole Grains

Grains like sprouted buckwheat, brown rice, quinoa, and steel cut oats are fantastic sources of soluble fibre. They also lower cholesterol. There’s a huge difference between unprocessed or less-processed grains, and very processed grains.

Always buy sprouted and brown varieties, because they retain the most fibre. When grains have been heavily processed (like white bread and rice), most of the original nutrients (including the fibre) has been stripped away. For example, whole grain wraps have 5 grams of fiber, while white or coloured ones have only 1 gram.

Quick note: dairy and meat contain zero fibre. FYI.

High-Fibre Foods

This is where it gets tricky: there are a lot of commercial products out there that are marketed to consumers as being equal, but all supplements are definitely not created equal. Some are really processed, and therefore have half the fibre they should have.

Because NutraCleanseTM contains minimal, raw, relatively unprocessed ingredients like ground flax seed, it works wonders for the digestive tract. Teeming with high-fiber ingredients that are medicinally helpful and supportive to the body, it really packs a massive punch when it comes to supplementing your digestive tract with the nutrients it needs.

Just one third of a cup of NutraCleanseTM contains 14 grams of fibre—now that’s amazing. To find out where NutraCleanseTM is sold near you, visit our map of retailers HERE.
