We have collaborated with our friends at City Row to co-create the ultimate post-workout smoothie. The Power Pull is a raw, organic, vegan, dairy free and nut free performance enhancing powerhouse. It is probiotic-rich and loaded with superfoods, such as hemp seeds, chia seeds, maca powder and coconut oil. It is designed to be consumed 30 minutes after a high-intensity workout. After you finish your kick-ass workout, replenish your body with this clean fuel.
We carefully alchemized this drink to give you the ideal ratio of protein (23g), fat (6g) and carbs (29g), with only 9g of sugar. No funky sweeteners here – we use vanilla extract, cinnamon and dates to sweeten this health-conscious blend.
The Power Pull is packed with high-integrity protein. Hemp seeds are an easily assimilated complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. Chia seeds provide you with clean plant-based protein, as well as fiber and essential omega 3 fatty acids. The Raw Protein powder we include is an organically sprouted protein, that also provides you with live probiotics and enzymes to support your digestive health.
We’ve included maca to help increase your endurance and stamina and give you a natural energy boost.The bananas are there to help protect against muscle cramps and soreness, while strengthening your bones.

Adapto- what? This word used in ancient remedies is getting re-introduced to the world of modern health and wellness. To put it simply: adaptogenic refers to a botanical that helps your body adapt. These herbs help to improve the health of your adrenal system, which is in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress.
Whether it be an extreme change in temperature or altitude, jet lag, a chaotic schedule, demanding job or any other stressor- these herbs can help you strengthen your body’s ability to adjust to stress and combat fatigue in a gentle and crash-free way while also working to increase energy, stamina and endurance.
These herbs are a great secret weapon for the wanderlust-filled adventurers, adrenaline junkies, high performance athletes and competitive go-getters.
Ashwagandha has been used for thousands of years and is one of the most highly prized herbs in the ancient tradition of Ayurveda. Ashwagandha is also one of the most potent anti-stress adaptogens.
It is known to increase vitality, promote longevity, strengthen the immune system and promote balance and stability internally. It is usually recommended by herbalists for people with high blood pressure, insomnia, chronic fatigue or exhaustion – either physical or mental.
Another highly beneficial ingredient in our Adaptogenic Tea blend is loose green tea leaves. Green tea is abundant in antioxidants, which help fight free radicals in your body and protect your cells from damage. Green tea has also been known to improve brain function and mental clarity. It can help aid in weight loss by boosting your metabolism and increasing your ability to burn fat.
The cinnamon bark in our Adaptogenic Tea adds a little sweetness, as well as works as an anti-inflammatory agent, helping to ease muscle and joint pain. It can lower your blood sugar, triglycerides and LDL (which is your bad cholesterol). Cinnamon bark has been known to increase circulation and boost cognitive function and memory. It can also reduce cravings, while providing you with natural and sustainable energy.
We’ve also added a pinch of cayenne for a little heat. The substance capsaicin gives cayenne its spiciness… and its amazing health benefits. Cayenne pepper is an anti-inflammatory agent that helps to relieve aches and pains. It can rev up your metabolism, improve circulation and it can also stimulate the lymphatic system, which can help your body detox more efficiently.
Our Adaptogenic Tea is a choice way to start your day. Wake up your mind, energize your body and give yourself a metabolic lift, while increasing immunity and decreasing stress levels.
A new year is upon us, and you know what that means – it is time for New Year’s resolutions and goal setting. This year you only need one resolution, take control of your own destiny. We are talking about co-creating your dream life.
The law of attraction is having a moment right now. People everywhere are buzzing about intentions, visualization and manifesting their dreams. The reason so many people are talking about it is because it really works. When you take the time to set intentions for your life and focus on practical ways to achieve them, the universe can’t help but support you.
Here are 7 steps for manifesting the life you desire:
The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over. Now is the time to check in with yourself. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Sit for a few moments, take a few deep breaths and let any lingering thoughts drift away. Start off by reflecting over the past year: think about how much you have accomplished and how much you’ve learned. Remind yourself of all the goals you’ve set for yourself that you’ve already achieved. Take a second to celebrate yourself.
2. Get clear
Now comes the fun part, start to visualize where you want to be; what you want your life to look like; how you want to feel. Your future is vast and can be a somewhat overwhelming topic to tackle….that’s okay. You can start small, with more immediate intentions and work your way up, or start with the big picture and narrow down the details. You can break your visions up into categories: the next 6 months, one year from now, three years now and so forth. Whatever method works best for you, go with that.
Really take the time to get clear and get specific- the details are the best part. Tap into your imagination, let your mind run wild. There are many mediations that can assist you in this process. Do some form of visualization everyday in order for your visions to become clearer and more vivid.
3. Write it down
Never underestimate the power of the written word. You have a much better chance at manifesting your intentions if you write them down. It helps you to better articulate the abstract thoughts floating around in your head into concrete visions. It frees up room in your brain for more creativity and helps you put plans into motion. It also holds you more accountable. Seeing your intentions written out is more motivating and compelling.
4. Speak up
Share your visions with your loved ones. It may seem a little daunting to say them out loud, but again you only increase the chances of manifesting your intentions if you say them out loud. Spoken goals are much more powerful then ones left unsaid. You don’t have to pour your heart out to everyone in your life or give them every little detail. It is a good idea though to share the main idea of your visions with those around you because they will most likely be instrumental in helping you achieve these intentions.
5. Confront your fears
Your fears are nothing to run from. Embrace your fears, shed light on them. Make a list of all the fears that are or could potentially hold you back from manifesting your dream life. Don’t let them build up negative energy in your mind, instead release them and brainstorm creative ways to overcome these fears.
6. Define action steps.
Now that you have this amazing vision of what you want your life to look like; you’ve written it down; you’ve shared it with others; you’ve identified fears surrounding these intentions- it is time to come up with a list of short term actions you can take within the next week or month to get you going on your desired path. Don’t put these off. This is the difference between having the life of your dreams or just going through the motions.
7. Create visual reminders
We are all busy people and despite our best intentions and efforts, things, often the most important things, slip through the cracks. That is why you need daily visual reminders. Vision boards are a fun and effective way to display the intentions you have set for yourself. There are plenty examples on the internet. You can make them out of anything from a poster board to a piece of driftwood.
If you aren’t up for an entire vision board, keep small reminders around your home. It can be sticky notes on your mirror, quotes on your refrigerator, pictures around your room, change the lock screen on your phone to a gentle reminder – you’re guaranteed to look at that only about a thousand times a day. These will help to keep you inspired and remind you that you are in control of your future.
Manifesting isn’t a one and done thing. The goal is to form a lasting dynamic relationship with your intentions and to spend time with them each and every day. Some days will provide huge breakthroughs, others huge heartbreaks. Most days you may not see a difference at all, but believe in the vision you have created for yourself and trust that you are capable of manifesting the life you desire…. and deserve.
