The old adage, you are what you eat, might sound simplistic but there is value in that concept. From eating the rainbow to protein rich meals, that healthy eating, balanced living has become a mantra for many people. Recently, Tamera Mowry-Housley shared how Orgain helps her feel good by adding foods that support her active lifestyle.
During a recent smoothie demo, Mowry-Housley shared how she fuels her day with a variety of tasty, protein-rich foods. The busy mom, entertainer and business woman appreciates that staying energized is supplemented by balanced food choices. From that quick meal to a recipe that everyone in her family likes, sometimes the simple answer is always an easy one.
Recently, Mowry-Housley partnered with Orgain to showcase how she uses a variety of their products in simple, tasty recipes. During the event, Mowry-Housley was clear. For her, smart choices have to easily work into her daily routine. In addition to being delicious, the ease of use is a priority.
One of the recipes that her whole family enjoys is a smoothie bowl. The combination of Organic Protein + Oatmilk Plant-Based Protein Powder in Chocolate, Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen Peptides, bananas, strawberries and a sweetener is a quick meal that the whole family enjoys. The smoothie bowl can be customized to add variety to any day. From a little toasted coconut on top to a few more fruits, the options are many. Always fresh, never boring, it can be the go-to dish that becomes a staple.
One of the reasons why this recipe works so well is that it has a broad appeal. The touch of sweetness appeals to kids yet a parent feels good about the nutritional value of protein and fruits in every spoonful.
When asked during the event, Mowry-Housley shared that she explains to her kids how that smoothie bowl can help them stay energized for all the activities that they do. Specifically, she tells her son that all his sports activities need the fuel to power his body, which is eating protein, fruits and vegetables. She said that he listens because he wants to do those activities.
While that idea makes sense, it isn’t a concept limited to kids. Adults, especially moms, need to appreciate that a little self-care in the form of balanced food choices help to fuel their busy routines. Specifically, Mowry-Housley said that self-care isn’t selfish.
For her lifestyle, she makes certain choices a priority. Whether it is getting a work-out in when she can to choosing recipes that help fuel her day, the reality is that those choices nourish both her body and mind. Making a healthy lifestyle the focus is good for her and sets a good example for her family.
And, making it a priority can start with good preparation. Having easy, tasty recipes that are versatile helps. Whether it is a smoothie bowl with the Orgain Protein + Oatmilk Plant-Based Protein Powder in Chocolate or flipping some pancakes with Organic Plant-Based Protein Pancake & Waffle Mix, the reality is that culinary creativity is within reach.
Speaking of the Organic Plant-Based Protein Pancake & Waffle Mix, Mowry-Housley suggested a few twists that she uses in her house. While adding a few chocolate chips or a little cinnamon are always good choices, she did recommend using a little ghee in the dish. That Indian butter can really boost the flavor.
In the end, Mowry-Housley has found that the Orgain feeling is one that helps to fuel her day. From a daily smoothie to even some pancakes, the focus is on positive, thoughtful choices. Those decisions aren’t selfish, they are smart choices to help her fuel a full lifestyle.
Now through March 12, Orgain is offering a “That Orgain Feeling” Bundle which was curated by Tamera Mowry-Housley. The bundle includes Organic Protein + Oatmilk Plant-Based Protein Powder in Chocolate, Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen Peptides and Organic Plant-Based Protein Pancake & Waffle Mix.
