It’s always a blast being on set with my dear friend Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. Last week we shared recipes that impact our energy levels throughout the day that may also boost our metabolism.
One thing to mention is that there is no single miracle food. Good nutrition and the benefits that come with it happen over time – a cumulative effect!
We received so many great questions about what we featured and the recipes that we thought it would be a great idea to recap and share them below.
This breakfast provides lots of fiber, sustainable energy, will keep you full for hours, and has ingredients that may boost your metabolism (a win-win!)
Combine in a jar:
Place ingredients (except for the fruit) into a jar. Stir well. Add fruit to the jar now or place over top when serving. Refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!
Sometimes we get to lunch and dinner and feel like we’re too busy to make a meal. This is a meal that is so easy, you will have it on autopilot in no time. It’s super comforting and filling – and it literally takes 5 minutes to throw 6 ingredients together in a pot and you’re done! The addition of my Tex Mex Power Blend dramatically increases both the flavor and anti-inflammatory properties of this chili.
A midday pick-me-up – a semi-sweet treat that provides a nice boost of energy and has some mild metabolism-boosting effects. Cacao contains antioxidant-rich polyphenols and may help reduce cravings. The Cinnapeel Spicer Power blend contains Ceylon Cinnamon (natural sweetness), ginger, which evidence suggests may help with weight loss, and granulated orange peel (incredible antioxidant properties).
In a blender, combine:
Place ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Heat in a saucepan over low to medium heat.
Bring to a simmer until warm. Divide among mugs. Enjoy!
