love the New Year and a fresh beginning.  As you know, I have tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle this last year and lose my baby weight of over 30 pounds.  It is such a great feeling to become healthy and adapt eating habits to keep yourself on track.  Many of you have probably made goals for this new year to have a healthier lifestyle and lose those extra holiday pounds.  If there is one thing that I have learned it is hugely important to get all of the nutrients that your body needs.  I started working with a nutritionist, logging in all of my meals to My Fitness Pal, and counted my macros.  I quickly found that in order to keep my macros and get enough nutrients and protein that my body needed a nutritional supplement.  

It helps to keep me on track and gives me enough energy throughout the day.  It is also perfect after a workout and gives my muscles and body the proper recovery and protein that it needs.  My body needs 35% of protein in my nutrition and I found it was nearly impossible to reach my goal without a nutritional supplement.

I instantly feel in love with FXN sport nutrition and it has become a necessity in my life to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  It is essential for getting the proper nutrients that I need in my diet.

unnamed-2“Since 2010, FNX has been providing the highest quality nutritional supplements to thousands of doctors across the US and Canada, successfully bringing a wide variety of benefits to their patients. Because of the science backing the FNX products many doctors who would not normally sell natural products in their practice have jumped on board and are astonished at the results they are seeing.  The FNX products are formulated for an all day release in the body making the benefits more consistent and beneficial, this is one of the major differences between FNX and other supplement companies.

With the FNX Score Meal Replacement not only do you get high quality protein but you also get 4.5 servings of real whole food fruits and veggies with every serving and on top of that 10 grams of cold milled flax seed.  To say that this products is highly nutritious is an understatement.  But you won’t know unless you try.
FNX has created the initiative FNX for LIFE as a way to work with you, our customer, to provide nutritious meals for children suffering from malnutrition. For each purchase made on our website, one nutritious meal is given to a child in need. One purchase = one meal.”

I also love using FNX nutrition in the recipes that I make.  It adds protein plus it gives you 4.5 servings of fruits and veggies!  It is also a great way to sneak in nutrients to recipes that my kids are needing as well without them knowing it.  Today I am sharing a healthier pancake recipe, my favorite berry green smoothie recipe and a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe!  I have also added this into breakfast muffins and the possibilities are endless in adding a scoop of this in recipes for the added nutrients that your body needs.
