Vigor + Vitality = Nutri Testo for the Win!

The following post is a collaboration with Nutri Lifescience™ to promote active lifestyles, fueled by natural nutrition. All views and opinions are my own. 

Nutri Testo Capsule

For anyone who’s ever casually perused my social media accounts, it’s no shocker that I have a slight obsession with Nutri Testo™ supplements.

Fine. Maybe not-so-slight. I admit…the love affair is real. But for good reason, capiche? That’s because just 1 Nutri Testo capsule, taken about 5–10 minutes before exercising, keeps me nourished, energized and focused throughout my workout—even when it’s been one of those days where motivation’s in short supply.

So, what’s the formula behind this fitness fuel? Turns out, Nutri Testo supplements contain a natural extract from the Tongkat Ali root—otherwise known as Malaysian Ginseng—recognized in Southeast Asia for both its anti-aging potential and balanced hormone support.

When the body’s hormonal health is out-of-whack, you could experience symptoms like fatigue, decreased libido, muscle atrophy, depression or even weight gain. Yeesh. That’s why keeping your hormones regulated is uber important. And Nutri Testo is up for the job!

Now, time for some stats. Here’s a nutritional breakdown* of the wellness benefits promoted by this supplement extraordinaire:

  • Anabolic Increase & Catabolic Decrease
  • Athletic Performance Enhancement
  • Lean Muscle Development
  • Anxiety & Stress Alleviation
  • Testosterone & Cortisol Health
  • Energy Support & Fatigue Reduction
  • Sleep Quality Improvement

Plus, with its plant-based nutritional goodness, Nutri Testo gives me the vigor and vitality to crank my workout motivation into high-gear. Which means I can almost do a headstand.

Power to the Workout

Ehh…practice makes progress. At least my body’s fueled though! And now yours can be too because I’ve teamed up with Nutri Lifescience (a.k.a. the Nutri Testo masterminds) to give fitness aficionados everywhere a chance to experience this supplement for themselves.

Just repost the corresponding giveaway photo on my Instagram feed, tag @nutrimaqui2015 and @its_the_healthy_hippie, include the hashtag #NutriTestoGiveaway and make sure to follow both accounts. Yup. That’s the drill. Not exactly rocket science, huh?

Mighty Nut: the Protein Powder of Champions + Giveaway

I first discovered Peanut Butter & Co back in college when surviving on PB&J sammies was an occupational hazard of dorm life. The creamy texture, finger licking flavors and all-natural ingredients powered me through everything from finals cram sessions (thanks for the 4.0, PB & Co!) to weekend Netflix binges (damn, I miss college sometimes!).

So, when I recently discovered PB & Co’s Mighty Nut protein powder, I just couldn’t resist. Not only does this product deliver all the smooth, silky lusciousness of traditional peanut butter, the finely ground consistency lends itself to baking, blending, sprinkling and more!

From smoothies to oatmeal, Mighty Nut is a convenient — and indulgent — way to meet your daily protein quota.

Here’s what you’ll find in each (2 tbsp.) serving:

  • 85% less fat calories than regular peanut butter
  • vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO certified
  • 5-6 grams of protein
  • 1-2 grams of fiber
  • only 1-2 grams of sugar
  • only 1-1.5 grams of fat

Plus, it’s available in 4 delightful varieties:

  • Original
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Flax & Chia

I’ve specifically been playing around with the Flax & Chia flavor, so behold my latest creation — Vegan Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Muffins. Because, any excuse for fall yummies, right?!

Pumpkin Muffins

Ingredients:

1 cup Unsweetened Pumpkin Purée

3/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour*

1/2 cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk

1/4 cup Mighty Nut Peanut Butter Powder

1 tbsp. All-Natural Almond Butter

1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

1/4 tsp. Cinnamon

Organic Stevia (to-taste)

*Make this recipe gluten-free by substituting any of these alternatives.

Pumpkin Muffin Ingredients

Preparation:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or use baking liners.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl until the batter is smooth and thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour the batter into each individual muffin cup (you should have enough batter to fill about 6 cups).
  4. Bake the muffins for approximately 20 minutes, or until they are completely cooked through (test with a toothpick to make sure).
  5. Allow the muffins to cool slightly for approximately 5 minutes, then give into the temptation — it’s guiltless, I swear!
