All-Day Energy Recipe Guide

Let’s take a look at this beautiful guide that Nurse Livingood has created. It’s called the “All-Day Energy Recipe Guide” and it’s filled with meals specifically designed to address the causes of low energy.

But remember, it’s not just about what you eat; we also need to address other components like stress levels.

So, let’s walk through all seven causes of low energy and see how these recipes can help.

1. Boost Your Metabolism: The first cause of low energy is a sluggish metabolism.

We need to give it a boost! That’s where the Fat-Burning Soup comes in.

This recipe has been a huge hit in our community.

It’s packed with ingredients that not only increase your energy but also help you burn fat.

Don’t worry, we’ve included good healthy fats like avocado oil to support your metabolism.

2. ATP — The Energy You Need: Did you know that your body produces more ATP (adenosine triphosphate) than your entire body weight daily?

ATP is the energy currency of your body, and we need it working at its best to keep you energized.

That’s why we’ve included foods like sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds in our recipes.

They are rich in nutrients like B vitamins and magnesium, which are essential for ATP production.

3. Circulation Issues: If you’re not pumping enough blood around your body, you’re bound to feel tired.

Poor blood circulation means your tissues are not getting enough oxygen and nutrients.

To improve circulation, try our Circulation-Boosting Bowl.

It’s filled with ingredients like beets, pomegranate seeds, and walnuts, which all promote healthy blood flow.

4. Antioxidant Battle: Your body is constantly fighting free radicals and oxidative damage caused by toxins and chemicals.

This can drain your energy.

That’s why we need antioxidants to support your body’s defense system.

Our Energy Balls are packed with nutrients and antioxidants to give you a quick energy boost and fight free radical damage.

5. Gut Health Matters: A healthy gut is crucial for optimal energy levels.

We recommend incorporating foods like flax seeds and coconut into your diet to support gut health.

These ingredients provide good healthy fats and nutrients that promote brain health and fight inflammation.

6. Stress Buster: Stress can deplete your energy levels and leave you feeling exhausted.

That’s where our Mocha Recipe comes in handy.

With the relaxing properties of chamomile tea and the energy boost from matcha, this latte is a perfect solution for reducing stress and increasing energy.

7. Turmeric Power: Turmeric is a true powerhouse when it comes to fighting inflammation and boosting energy.

You can enjoy it in our Turmeric Golden Milk recipe or use it to season your dishes and add a pop of color to your food.

Make sure to choose a high-quality turmeric powder or fresh turmeric root for maximum potency and health benefits.

Incorporating natural remedies and whole foods into your diet can work wonders for your energy levels and overall health.

Take the first step towards optimal energy restoration and start by trying our “All-Day Energy Recipe Guide” and implementing our turmeric golden milk recipe into your daily routine.

Your body will thank you for it!

The Power of Turmeric

Now that we’ve covered six causes of low energy and provided you with some delicious recipes to address them, it’s time to focus on the seventh cause: inflammation.

Inflammation can wreak havoc on your body, leaving you feeling drained and sluggish.

But fear not, because we’ve got a powerful natural remedy to combat inflammation and boost your energy levels: turmeric.

Turmeric is more than just a spice that adds flavor to your dishes.

It contains a compound called curcumin, which has been extensively studied for its numerous health benefits.

Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which may help reduce the chronic inflammation that may be draining your energy.

But how do you incorporate turmeric into your daily routine?

Nurse Livingood has come up with a simple recipe to make it easy for you.

Turmeric Golden Milk


  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or any other dairy-free milk of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey (optional)
  • A pinch of black pepper (to enhance the absorption of curcumin)


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the almond milk over medium heat until steaming hot.
  2. Add the turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper to the saucepan. Whisk well to combine all the ingredients.
  3. Continue whisking for a few minutes until the mixture is well heated and fragrant.
  4. Remove from heat and strain the golden milk into a mug.
  5. If desired, sweeten with raw honey to taste.

Sip on this comforting and aromatic golden milk to enjoy its anti-inflammatory benefits and boost your energy levels naturally.

You can even have it as a bedtime drink to promote relaxation and overall well-being.

Remember, consistency is key when it comes to incorporating natural remedies into your routine.

Make this turmeric golden milk a daily ritual and watch as your energy levels soar.
