Try THIS to make healthful decisions effortlessPosted by Autumn Smith
As you may have noticed, I'm obsessed with morning beverages because what you consume in the morning sets the biochemical tone for the rest of the day. Literally. If you choose doughnuts, muffins or a tall glass of OJ (carbohydrate-heavy foods) you'll spike your blood sugar and set yourself up for energy crashes, mood fluctuations and voracious cravings for the rest of the day.
On the other hand, if you choose a meal full of high quality protein and/or fat, you'll be energized, centered and craving-free for several hours afterward. People I work with are consistently shocked by how effortless healthful dietary decisions are with just this simple strategy.
Which is why I work hard to give you as many delicious morning options as possible.
(Or actually my husband worked hard this time because he is the creator of this tasty little sweet treat we call our Chai deliciousness:)
You’re going to LOVE it!
Especially because when you drink it you'll feel like you're "cheating" but instead you'll be flooding your body with antioxidants, healthy fats, anti-aging collagen and other nutrients that will help you feel (and look) your best for the rest of the day.
If you're not familiar with the amazing benefits of grass fed collagen, here are some of its empirically-supported benefits:

Okay on to the good stuff! Here's how you make it...
- Steep Organic Herbal Chai (or Organic Green Rooibos Tea) in hot water for 5 minutes (about 8 ounces)
- Heat 3/4 cup of organic almond milk on the stove (low setting)
- Combine tea and milk in a blender.
- Add a pinch of organic cardamom and cloves.
- Then 1/2 tsp. organic ginger
- And 1 tsp. organic cinnamon

A nutrient bomb in a mug!
Sip away, prevent cravings and your best all day.
