Slique, Strong, and Fit #5: Slique Tea, Slique Gum, Slique Bars, and Slique Essence

Thanks for coming back! This class is a long one and I know it’s been a LOT of posts for today but I could not think of having you have to wait seven weeks to learn about these great products! This post is longer than the others because in this part of the class, I grouped these four products together because they are the four I would purchase if I couldn’t buy the full line at once. This will give you a drink, gum, snack or meal replacement, and AN ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND!!!! Then you can add the shakes (or use them in place of the tea) or Citra Slim at another time. Let’s dive in!

 

sliquetea

Slique® Tea

Slique Tea is an exotic drink that has been formulated with natural ingredients to help support individual weight goals.* This delicious, rare blend of natural ingredients chosen for health-boosting benefits.

This tea has ingredients known to have the following:

• Flavonoids: dietary compounds generally associated with helping maintain certain normal healthy body functions
• Polyphenols: may be useful as part of a guilt-free weight management regimen when combined with a healthy diet and physical activity.
• Antioxidants: play a critical role in preventing cell oxidation and protecting against aging and illness.

Slique Tea includes jade oolong tea, which is highly sought after for its rich aroma and antioxidant content. The leaves are handpicked from the mountains in Taiwan and are known for producing some of the world’s finest teas. Slique tea also includes wild harvested Ecuadorian ocotea leaf, Ecuadorian cacao powder, vanilla essential oil, pure frankincense powder, and natural stevia extract. Slique Tea is a great alternative for sugar-filled drinks and coffees.

How do you use Slique Tea?

Slique Tea is great to use anytime you need a natural boost.
1. Bring 8 ounces of water to a rolling boil.
2. Place one pouch in a cup, mug, or filter and add boiling water.
3. Steep for at least 3 minutes.
4. Add your favorite Young Living Vitality™ essential oils as desired. We love Grapefruit Vitality, Lime Vitality, Orange Vitality, Lemon Vitality, Spearmint Vitality, and Peppermint Vitality. You can also try adding some Organic Dried Wolfberries for a berry flavor. Add additional Vitality essential oils once the tea has cooled. Heat may destroy some of the essential oils’ benefits.

Tea tip: If you want more caffeine, let your tea bag steep in really hot water for a longer amount of time. For less caffeine, steep the tea in warm or cool water for a shorter amount of time.

sliquebars

Slique Bars

Skip the processed protein bar and go for a Slique bar! Slique bars provide healthy calories, essential nutrition, they taste amazing, and are full of simple, nutritious ingredients, and are high in fiber, gluten-free, and contain no trans fats or preservatives! If you want a delicious snack that’s healthy, you need to try Slique Bars.

Slique Bars provide essential nutrition and promote fullness by combining high levels of fiber, protein, and fats. Slique Bars also contain a unique ingredient called potato skin extract. Potato skin extract helps to increase the duration of feeling of fullness because it stimulates the release of cholecystokinin in the body.

Did you know?
One chocolate-coated Slique Bar provides 24% of your daily recommended fiber.

Chocolate-covered Slique Bars have 42% fewer calories and 45% fewer total carbohydrates than the average regular-sized chocolate candy bar.

Below is a list of ALL the ingredients you will find in a Slique Bar! You will notice it is only made with simple ingredients you can pronounce!

  • Organic dark chocolate
  • Baru nuts
  • Almonds
  • Honey
  • Chicory root inulin

What do you think you would love most about Slique Bars?

sliquegum

Slique Gum

Most individuals consume far more “empty calories” than what is considered healthy. What is an empty calorie? Empty calories come from food containing little to no nutrients—particularly from added sugars. Things like cookies, donuts, soda, ice cream, hot dogs, etc., are good examples of empty calories. So how do you avoid mindless snacking and purging on foods that are providing minimal nourishment? We recommend practicing mindful eating; but while you are working on being more mindful about what you eat, chewing gum can help!

Did you know that the act of chewing can help control cravings and curb appetite? Chewing gum between meals and snacks can help prevent eating out of boredom or habit. This is nothing new—in fact, ancient travelers throughout the Middle East chewed raw frankincense resin for its ability to help control cravings and stave off hunger. This is the reason we included the benefits of frankincense resin our gum!

Our Slique® Gum offers the same benefits as frankincense resin and supports general oral health.* Infused with Peppermint Vitality™ and Spearmint Vitality, this oil-infused gum is a great on-the-go option you can keep with you in your purse, backpack, or car. It also contains frankincense resin, natural sweeteners, and xylitol.

We love chewing it in the afternoon when that midday sugar craving hits! Add a drop of Peppermint Vitality for an extra burst of freshness and flavor. When do you like to chew Slique Gum?

sliqueessence

Slique Essence

Did you know water acts as a natural hunger blocker? If you think you’re hungry, you might actually be thirsty. Drinking more water will help cut down on these false hunger feelings. You should try to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces each day. So if you weigh 160 pounds, you should drink at least 80 ounces (or 10 cups) of water.

To make this easier, try adding some Slique Essence™ to your water with the added benefits of essential oils!

Slique Essence combines Grapefruit, Tangerine, Lemon, Spearmint, and Ocotea essential oils with stevia extract to support healthy weight management goals. These oils work together to help manage hunger, especially when used with other Slique® products. The citrus combination of Grapefruit, Tangerine, and Lemon essential oils adds a flavorful and uplifting element when you need it most, and Spearmint may help with digestion.* Ocotea essential oil adds an irresistible, cinnamon-like aroma to help control hunger, while stevia adds an all-natural sweetener that provides a pleasant taste with no added calories.

Staying hydrated is so important for your metabolism to run at its best. Your body is up to 60 percent water and needs water to function properly. Being dehydrated prevents your metabolism from running at peak capacity. Try adding a few drops of Slique Essence to your sparkling water for a refreshing soda alternative or adding it to a warm cup of Slique Tea.

Use between and during meals regularly throughout the day. Shake vigorously before use.

Note: Use caution when diffusing this blend. Stevia extract in this formula may impede diffuser performance!

Slique, Strong, and Fit #4: Slique Shake

If pills and packets aren’t your thing, that’s okay. I understand because I take many supplements to ensure I stay in good health and someday I feel like I couldn’t add anymore pills to my morning without hitting my gag relax too many times. BUT there’s relief! Shakes!! Who doesn’t love a great shake! Let’s dive in to learning about the Slique Shake.

 

sliqueshake.jpg

Slique® Shake

Slique Shake is a vegan meal replacement that provides quick, satisfying, and delicious nutrition. It’s full of clean ingredients, vitamins, and minerals and is formulated with Slique Essence™ essential oil. This shake may support healthy weight management when combined with regular exercise and a sensible diet.*

We love downing these when on the go or when we don’t have time to prepare a meal; they’re truly a lifesaver. When you are hungry, you’re more vulnerable to reach for something unhealthy; keeping these shakes on hand can help keep you on track. The best part is that they come in single serve-packets, so you can easily keep them in your purse, gym bag, or backpack!

Slique Shake is:

• Vegan—It contains a blend of pea protein, quinoa, wolfberry, pumpkin seed protein, and alfalfa grass juice powder for vegan-friendly protein.
• Raw—Slique Shake is considered a raw product because it is processed under 118 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Free of soy, dairy, and nut-derived ingredients; artificial colors and flavors; preservatives; and cholesterol.
• Made of non-GMO ingredients.
• Formulated with naturally derived B vitamins, including natural folate.
• Sweetened with stevia, organic coconut palm sugar, wolfberries, and strawberries.
• A good source of potassium, folate (vitamin B9), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and chromium.
• An excellent source of vitamin C, thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin B6.
• Rich in phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, molybdenum, iron, and niacin (vitamin B3).
• Fortified with high-potency manganese (150 percent).

Slique Shake provides a sustained source of energy through a split ratio of macronutrients that will help keep you fuller longer. It also contains a wide range of essential micronutrients and a fruit and vegetable blend that provides powerful phytonutrients to ensure you’re giving your body the nutrition it needs.

Let’s talk more about what macronutrients are and how this makes Slique a unique product. The macronutrients that we obtain from food for energy are carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber. In Slique Shake, the macronutrient ratio is 38:30:20:12. So 38 percent of the energy comes from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein, 20 percent from fat, and 12 percent from fiber. Young Living designed Slique Shake with these macro ratios to keep you fuller longer and to contribute to a well-rounded diet.

Carbohydrates:
The carbs in Slique Shake are from organic quinoa, organic pumpkin seed, and coconut palm sugar. Organic quinoa and coconut palm sugar have been shown to have a low glycemic index (GI). GI refers to how long it takes between ingesting a carb source to the resulting rise in blood sugar and, hence, energy levels.

Fats: medium-chain triglycerides
The fats in non-GMO coconut are known as medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, and these are treated much like carbs. They provide energy-rich, sustained fuel and are perfect for those of us with busy lifestyles. The fats in Slique provide 20 percent of the total energy and are made up of MCTs to ensure that the essential fatty acids are included in optimum amounts. But MCTs have another invaluable quality: they are not susceptible to oxidation and rancidity, meaning that they do not contribute to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In short, MCTs from coconut/palm are a healthy and efficient source of energy.

Vitamins and minerals (also known as micronutrients) in Slique Shake:
• Potassium, folate (vitamin B9), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and chromium
•Vitamin C, thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin B6
• Phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, molybdenum, iron, and niacin (vitamin B3)
• High-potency manganese (150 percent DV)

Fiber:
Slique Shake contains 7 g of the recommended daily amount of fiber. The fiber is a mixture of soluble and insoluble fiber and comes naturally from the food ingredients. The high fiber content of Slique Shake encourages healthy digestion.*

Phytonutrients in Slique Shake:
Slique Shake is rich in phytonutrients because of all the plant-based ingredients. We have also added some additional phytonutrients like wolfberry, pumpkin seed protein, and alfalfa grass juice powder to optimize the Slique Shake formula and to complement the antioxidant nutrients vitamins C and E and selenium.

When it comes to meal replacements, this shake is as clean as they come.

Slique, Strong, and Fit #2: Mindful Eating & The Slique in 60 Challenge

Good to see you again! I’m hoping that didn’t take the full hour to read and that you had some time to grab a cup of tea or breakfast between posts on this lovely Saturday morning! Speaking of breakfast…let’s talk about mindful eating!
mindfuleating

Mindful Eating

Even though we aren’t telling you to follow a specific diet, one thing we highly reccomend is mindful eating. Mindful eating is not eating whatever you want, whenever you feel like it. Mindful eating is using the education you have about healthy eating and nutrition and putting it into practice.

Here are our top 11 mindfulness tips:

1. Check in prior to eating. When you sit down, ask yourself how hungry you are on a 1–10 scale, with 10 being ravenous. Are you stressed, angry, or tired? This helps to not only identify what you’re feeling but to also notice the times you tend to overeat.

2. Put your eating utensils down at least five times during the meal. This helps you not consume your meal too fast and promotes the digestive process.

3. Chew your food at least 30 times. Digestion begins in the chewing process and helps to release enzymes that are needed to digest food. Remember, it takes a tremendous amount of energy to digest food! The more you break food down by chewing, the easier it is on the body.

4. Practice the 80 percent rule. Stop eating when you are 80 percent full. It takes at least 20 minutes for the message to get to the brain that the stomach is full.

5. Use a smaller plate. The larger the plate, the more food we tend to put on it. Your stomach is the size of your fist; consume any more than that and you might be overeating.

6. Drink a glass of water before eating. This helps to fill the stomach and might help you eat less.

7. Try communal-style eating. Studies have shown that we eat 25–30 percent less food when we have communal-style meals. In some areas of the world, this is the only way they eat.

8. Try eating in silence for at least one meal a day or every other day. This introspective approach helps you tune in to the signals that you are full. You will also have a different food experience because your attention is on the taste of the food you’re eating.

9. Give thanks. Take a moment and give thanks for the food you eat. It takes a lot of effort and energy to get it to the table. Gratitude for the food you have is essential for a healthy mind.

10. Turn off electronic devices. The TV and other devices are distractions to staying present during mealtime; learn to shut them off while you eat. Food and eating are wonderful experiences that we share with others during the holiday season.

11. Change your energy around food. Don’t focus on all the foods that are bad for you and how much you want to eat them. Focus on the nutritious foods that help heal your body. When you treat yourself with respect and focus on eating as a way of healing the body, the shift in perspective helps make eating healthy easier.

Try these suggestions for a happier and healthier time with friends and family! You aren’t making healthy changes as a punishment to yourself, healthy eating is a celebration of all that your body does!
