HOW TO USE, by Clean & Lean Queen, Christiane Duigan

Bodyism Shake Shack

Shakes are a really intelligent and delicious way of nourishing yourself during a hectic day. I use my blender to mix up lots of green vegetables with a scoop of one of the Clean and Lean supplements, a handful of berries and whatever type of milk I feel like that day.

A word of warning: If you’re blending apples, berries and melon with only a tiny bit of kale, you’re not doing it right. All that fruit will provide a huge hit of sugar- fructose, which is a naturally occurring fruit sugar, is still sugar and you can have too much of it. So always add a bit of fruit to a lot of vegetables and some good fats. Remember the basic Clean and Lean principles and you’ll be fine.

Once you work out your likes and dislikes, you can start making up your own recipes. These are my top tips:

  • Choose a Clean and Lean supplement
  • Add an unsweetened nut milk or organic whole milk
  • Throw in an extra handful of greens
  • Add a little bit of fruit
  • Mix in a spoon of nut butter
  • Add a few cubes of ice
  • Shake it up!

Shakes are a wonderful way to create the foundation for a healthy, happy day or a nourishing boost to keep you going in the afternoon.

Top Tip* A lukewarm smoothie isn’t great, that’s why I always add a handful of ice to the blender- it makes such a difference.

Berry Burn Slushie

Berry Burn is the Bodyism version of an energy drink. It is packed with amino acids and antioxidants which are vital for your muscles to repair quickly after exercise. Having a diet rich in antioxidants means that you can exercise for longer without getting over tired or low in energy. We’ve just blended it up with some coconut water and another boost of summer berries.

Top Tip *

A star ingredient in Berry Burn is ‘Acai’ which is one of the most potent of all the berries in terms of antioxidants. Some studies have shown that most antioxidant-rich foods are rich in colour too and the colour of the acai is one of the most vibrant.

Serves 1

Ingredients

1 cup frozen mixed berries

1.5 cups coconut water

1 scoop Berry Burn

0.5 cup ice

Throw it in your blender and shake it up!

Sleep Sweet Smoothie

A good night’s sleep will help you deal with the endless stream of ‘bikini’ and ‘butt’ instagram pictures that make you want to punch your phone in the face. It will also give your brain a much needed chance to process all of the other things going on in your life, so that you wake up the next day feeling fresh, recharged and restored. Sleep is also the time when our body does most of its physical restoration, it’s when we actually burn fat and metabolise all of the things that need to be dealt with. What we’re trying to say is,  please don’t underestimate the importance of sleep. Founder of Bodyism, James Duigan, spent years craving something just before bed but  didn’t want it to raise his sugar and energy levels preventing him from a great night’s sleep. So Serenity was his answer; it’s made with calming herbs that can help assist lowering anxiety levels and combat the stress hormones that dump fat on your tummy. Serenity also contains hops, oats and chamomile to help your body relax and promote a restful, deep and rejuvenating sleep.

Ingredients

1 scoop Serenity

1.5 cups almond milk

1 tsp cacao

Method

Heat the almond milk.

In a blender mix the milk, cacao and serenity.

Enjoy in a mug as you wind down for a nourishing night’s sleep.
