Bonus Boost: Chia Superfoods Drink
Feeling a bit sluggish? This chia, supergreens, and coconut water superfoods shot is full of fiber and is perfect for a morning boost. Celebrity trainer Valerie Waters recommends her clients chug this drink before a morning workout for an extra energy boost. "Most people don't get enough fiber, and they especially don't get enough fiber when they are cutting carbs, and they're cutting carbs because they eat too much crap and that's where their bad foods are — carbs," Valerie explains. "When they're on my plan and I've asked them to take those out and focus on vegetables and fruit and sweet potatoes and things like that, I get them to drink this to increase their vegetable intake to bring the fiber back up. It also helps them during the detox period because it helps with elimination."
