In my mind, there is nothing as cozy as gingerbread. From the sweet, rich flavors of molasses to the punch of ginger that wakes up your senses and warms you to the kiss of cinnamon that swirls it all together in comfy-food goodness.
I absolutely love that I can still enjoy holiday flavors without the guilt and even get my fair share of protein. Not to mention, the fact that these have just a little over 100 calories per muffin, and no flour, oil, butter or sugar! I’m telling you, you have to try these muffins for yourself! You (and your family) will be so happy you did!
Not only am I pretty smitten with the muffins, I’m also pretty pumped about Renew Life Ultimate Flora Probiotics to help keep everyone in my family feeling their best. It can be so miserable to start feeling sick around holidays. I sure don’t want any of us missing out on all of the fun festivities, so we’re building our immunity through taking a daily probiotic.
We’re also taking care of the holiday belly bloat, by taking an enzyme supplement like Renew Life® Digest Smart Enzyme prior to heavy, rich meals. Renew Life® Digest Smart Enzymes contain 25 plant-based and raw enzymes to support your digestive system. The enzymes help to break down foods and get rid of gas, so you don’t have any uncomfortable indigestion or bloating.
I’m sure you can relate, especially during the holidays, digestive health is something that we all have to deal with. Having a healthy digestive system is so important with regards to the way we feel and what we’re able to accomplish in our day. Research shows that having a healthy gut positively affects mood, memory, immune health, digestion and more – all so essential to our everyday lives.
Taking a daily probiotic, like Renew Life Ultimate Flora Probiotics and enzymes, like Renew Life® Digest Smart Enzymes, will help you to restore digestive balance and gut health, which is important this time of year and really any time of the year. It sure does take guts to make it through the holidays!
