February is the month of love. It’s a time to express love and feel loved in return. And this includes loving yourself! Sometimes that can be tough to do and may take some time to develop but one of the BEST ways to start showing love for yourself is to take care of your body. You only have one life to live, so take care of your health so you can live it to the fullest!
In the last post, we talked about February being American Heart Month and how you can boost your heart health. One of the best things you can do is eating a healthy diet. There are lots of diets out there and research has shown that, specifically, a plant-based diet reduces the risk of cardiovascular related issues like obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. A plant-based diet- that might sound a little overwhelming and thoughts might start running through your mind like, “where do I even start?! Am I supposed to just eat kale for the rest of my life??”
No, not at all!
Viiva makes it easy with their plant protein base. It works perfectly for those who follow a plant-based diet and also for those who just want to take better care of their heart. Here’s why: Okay, this may not seem like a big deal to some, but if you’re like me, IT IS! Viiva’s plant protein base comes in individual serving size packets. This means you’ll avoid the hassle of digging your hand through a container to find the scoop. And, you won’t have to worry about measuring it out. Hallelujah! Seriously, it’s so convenient.
Protein: Our protein base contains 20g of pea protein. Protein helps keep you fuller for longer and boosts energy levels. This is perfect if you’re trying to cut out the junk or reduce the urge to snack throughout the day. Plus, because it’s made with pea protein instead of whey protein, it doesn’t contain milk. So, it’s safe for individuals who are lactose intolerant.
Chia Seeds: The chia seeds in our protein base contain 5g of fiber. Fiber helps flush out fat and toxins from your body. This can be especially beneficial for those trying to maintain or lose weight.
Psyllium Husk: This helps aids in digestion. I’ve personally found that several protein powders make me feel bloated but Viiva’s leaves me feeling good!
Omega-3s: The Omega-3s found in Viiva’s protein base are good for strengthening your cardiovascular system and promoting total heart health. YES, PLEASE!
Viiva’s plant protein base is a smart, easy step to move towards having a healthier heart so that you’ll be able to give and receive love for years to come!
