Savor Every Bite: A Guide to Getting the Most Out of Your Food

Want to learn more?

It’s easy to overlook the importance of digestive health until you start to experience symptoms that force you to look into it more. But why wait? Proper digestion plays a massive role in how you feel day to day so it’s essential to ensure you’re getting the most out of the food you eat. The best way to do this is to look at your day and how you can best support your body to do what you need it to do. Whether it’s setting yourself up for the day with a good breakfast or ensuring your recovery game is on point with those post-workout snacks, it all matters and makes a huge difference to how your body looks and feels.

Your typical day is YOUR typical day, and no two will be exactly the same. But by using this general guide as a starting point to follow, you can pick and choose what applies to you and go from there. So let’s get started!

Starting Your Day Right

  • Begin your morning with a glass of warm water with lemon to kickstart digestion and hydrate your body. 
  • Incorporate fiber-rich foods like oats, fruits, and vegetables into your breakfast to promote regular bowel movements and sustained energy levels. Making a Super Greens smoothie is a great way to get in those greens and an energy boost to hit the day running.

Fueling Your Workouts

  • Before hitting the gym, chow down on some carbs and lean proteins to keep your energy levels up. 
  • Hydration is crucial for optimal performance. Drink water before, during, and after your workout to prevent dehydration and support digestion.
  • Refueling post-workout is super important to get those gains. Have a balanced meal prepped in advance containing protein and carbohydrates to aid muscle recovery and replenish your glycogen stores. You can also add Super Greens powder to some water for a convenient post-workout shake.

Beating the Midday Slump

  • It’s tempting to go for those sugary snacks when the midday slump kicks in. You’re feeling tired, have a few hours left to go, and you “deserve” a treat, right? Well… no. This is where you need to reframe your thinking. Yes, your body deserves a treat, but that treat should be something that benefits it rather than slowing it down and making you feel even more sluggish. Instead of reaching for sugary goodies, opt for protein-rich snacks like nuts, yogurt, or hummus with vegetables to keep blood sugar levels stable and energy up.
  • Stay hydrated throughout the day by sipping on water or herbal teas to keep things moving on the digestion front and stop you feeling sluggish. If you struggle to drink enough water, get a liter bottle and leave it on your desk as a reminder to refill it at least once during the day. You can even add some lemon or any kind of fruit flavoring (a slice of fruit) to make it more refreshing if you’re not a big fan of the taste of water.
  • Take our Digestive Catalyst supplement with your lunch to optimize nutrient absorption and prevent bloating or discomfort that can hit you when all that food hits your tum.

Winding Down for Sleep

    • It’s a good idea to opt for lighter meals in the evening to ward off any potential reflux issues and prevent discomfort during sleep. 
    • Limit caffeine and alcohol intake in the evening –  these are common culprits that can disrupt sleep and digestion.
    • Incorporate our Fast Asleep supplement into your bedtime routine to promote relaxation, soothe digestion, and help you to get a restful, uninterrupted sleep. 

Your Body. Your Rules.

Why wait until discomfort strikes to pay attention to our digestive health? After all, feeling good should be a constant, not an occasional bonus! Our day-to-day routines vary, each one as unique as we are, but this guide is an excellent basis for ensuring that what you eat supports your needs throughout the day.

Whether it’s kickstarting the morning with a refreshing glass of water and lemon, powering through workouts with Super Greens, beating the midday slump with the Digestive Catalyst, or winding down for a peaceful night’s sleep, every step counts. Remember: it’s all about finding what works best for you. Your body, your rules.
