Swap your Star Bucks to this chocolate Peanut Butter smoothie to boost your energy to beat menopause fatigue

I’ve got a recipe for you today that’s perfect for days you want a little boost of energy to tackle a project or a workout – or you just want a healthy snack that tastes like an indulgent treat! 

This one doesn’t disappoint!

It features coffeechocolate… and PEANUT BUTTER! (Plus it also contains plenty of fiber, healthy fats, potassium, and antioxidants.)

It’s a smoothie that’s actually good for you. Note: because it contains caffeine, you’ll want to have this earlier in the day vs. later.

If you are ever tempted by the blended concoctions at coffeehouses (which are loaded with empty calories that make your blood sugar spike and then crash) this is a must-try. 

 I’ve experimented with making this two different ways – one is faster – and have had taste-testers try them both, and we’re mixed when it comes to the winner.

So, I leave it to you whether you pre-soak the chia seeds. I like...

How long does menopause last?

 

It’s a bit a difficult question to answer because it really is different for every woman.

 

Menopause is a time of a woman’s life when the ovaries no longer produce eggs and the production of ovarian hormones begins to drop off. This causes many different symptoms that ultimately result in the cessation of periods.

 

When a woman has had no periods for twelve consecutive months, it is said that menopause is over.

 

There are actually three phases of menopause during a natural menopause. These include the following:

 

  • Perimenopause. This is also referred to as the menopause transition. This period of time usually starts 8-10 years before actual menopause and is a time when the ovaries are gradually producing less of the hormones, estrogen, and progesterone. Perimenopause usually begins when a woman is in her 40s but can also begin when a woman is in her 30s. Perimenopause continues until the woman reaches menopause and no more eggs are made....

Are you showing up the way you want to? women 40+

The other night I just did NOT want to take any time to clean the kitchen, but it’s one of “my” chores (we all have our own chores)and I have this personal rule that before I go to bed, the kitchen has to be squared away.

 

Now, when I say I did NOT want to do it, I mean I really, really, really did NOT want to step even one foot into the kitchen.

 

I was tired and was counting down the minutes until I could get into bed. I’m sure you’ve been there.

 

But I knew the kitchen wasn’t going to magically clean itself. And I also knew something else, from past experience – and it’s actually why I’m writing you this message today.

 

I knew that if I didn’t keep my commitment to myself, it’d be easier to break that commitment again– and again, and again.

 

I also knew that it would have a ripple effect, making it easier to break other commitments to myself, too.

 

So I grumbled a...

Forget about big goals. Do this instead.

Hi,

This email is all about a very simple (but super powerful) philosophy in business that improves efficiency, creates steady long-term growth, and basically helps you to CRUSH your goals.

But the power of this philosophy goes way beyond business. It also can make a HUGE difference in living a better, healthier and a more fulfilled life.

 

It’s fueled by one simple principle:

 

Do 1 percent better every day.

You might have heard of kaizen before, which is the idea of doing 1% better every single day. It’s all about small, continuous improvements. When you add them all up, they lead to mind-blowing changes.

 

What’s even more amazing is that the changes created this way actually “stick.” That’s because they didn’t require any major lifestyle overhauls. Instead, they were built up over a period of time, which means you learn to MANAGE and MAINTAIN them along the way.

 

And that’s EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT!
