ZINNNNG! A Spoonful of Energy To Start Your AM Off Right

The Skinny Confidential's morning routine.

The Skinny Confidential's morning routine.

ZINNNNGG!

I love energy. Having energy is like, the best thing ever.

Ever, ever.

So. On that note, here’s lil peak inside my AM routine:

I wake up to an annoying-ass alarm, grab my phone, & lay in bed for about fifteen minutes scrolling through e-mails while spooning Pixy ( << the most gorgeous girl in the world ).

No one can talk to me for at least thirty minutes or I may bite their head off.

I finally get out of bed, feed Pixy ( non-GMO food, naturally ), brush my hair ( kidding, NOT! What’s a brush? ), blah, blah, blah.

Lately I’ve added oil pulling to my routine. While OP-ing I clean, make the bed, & get ready for the day.

And then ( am I boring you yet? )…comes the fun part.

A spoonful of energy.

Yup. That’s right.

Energy in a spoon > anything.

The Skinny Confidential's morning routine. Energy in a spoon was created by Ms. Kimberly Snyder.

& lemme tell ya, it’s so easy it’s almost embarrassing.

Like, I’m obsessed because I love easy/simple/quick anything ( this excludes people, LOLZ ).

All ya do is a spoonful of coconut oil & topped off with about a tablespoon of bee pollen ( << local pollen is best ) & EAT.

If you don’t like the taste…plug your nose. Beauty is pain. I personally love the taste though. It’s kinda amaze.

Anyway I have this whole story on allergies which I’ll share later & bee pollen has been a total game changer for my seasonal allergies.

Not only is it good for allergies though, it’s also filled with some badass benefits. Like what?

♡ Smoothes skin…buh-bye acne!

♡ Helps with the digestive and respiratory system.

♡ Aids with the prostate ( << guys!! Eat your bee pollen!! #savetheballs ).

♡ Helps with infertility problems.

♡ Enhances energy…zing!

♡ Helps with hair & nails with its vitamins, minerals, & enzymes.

♡ Promotes weight loss. Cha-ching!

According to this source, “bee pollen is a food and acts faster and more effectively when taken at mealtime, which lets it gently, perform a little cleansing of the intestinal flora. A spoonful at breakfast reinforce the activity of the fresh pollen.You’ll be pleased to know that bee keepers are able to remove pollen from hives without harming the bees or disturbing their routine.”

Soooooo if you want to start the day buzzing with energy, try this lil tippity-tip & LMK how you feel.

Zing, zinggggg!

+ Disclaimer: please note that a lot of people are highly allergic to bee pollen ( & don’t know it ). If you’ve never ingested it, please try one kernel under your tongue to see if you’re allergic before eating any kind of bee pollen.

    We have bee pollen in a supplement that I use from my company everyday. Where can you find it by itself, in stores? Online??

    I am an It Works distributor and we have a supplement, called greens, that I take daily. It has a TON of benefits and one of the ingredients is bee pollen. Where would you purchase bee pollen by itself? In stores? Online?

    Hey, apparently the correct routine re oil pulling is first pull, swoosh, spit to a bin, and only THEN brush your teeth.
    Bee glue/propolis is another amazing thing – works miracles on zits/acne shhhh :)

    Make sure to use bee pollen that comes from you region. That enhances the effect and contains all the nutrients you really need, because it comes from the environment you live in – this helps especially with allergies, because the pollen come from your region. It doesn´t help much when you eat pollen from (for example) the north, where other plants grow, because that´s not in the air you breath everyday.
    I hope this is understandable, sorry for my language, i´m not english/american ; )
    Oh, and the source: my mother, she is a beekeeper.

    lots of love from germany <3

    Looks like someone has been reading Kimberly Snyder books! Awesome! I tried this a long time ago, from her book, and couldn’t don’t (so sensitive to texture), but I do both in my morning smoothies:)

    Wow! I am definitely getting some bee pollen in my life. I knew it was good for allergies, but I wasn’t aware of how overall beneficial it is. Great post!

    I’m so buying bee-pollen when I get paid on Monday. I read about it everywhere and I’m so curious to try it out!

    That sounds pretty weird eating coconut oil, I don’t know if I should try it or not.

    Hey Lauren,

    Sooo I’m totally going to try this…for some reason I just all of a started having allergies to pollen like this year even though I’ve lived the past 24 years sneeze-free (I think it’s a sign of poor lifestyle choices from college/post-college…). Anyway, completely off topic but have you ever done a post about Alpha Lipoic Acid? My sister’s mother-in-law does it religiously and feels great, lost tons of weight…I tried it, same brand (Trader Joe’s), and I think I saw some benefits but not sure. I can’t find like a general consensus online if it’s good to do or not, so I thought I’d go to a guru like you!

    Wow, this is so interesting, I’ve never heard of bee pollen! How long have you been taking it and have you noticed much of a difference in your hair and skin (not prostrate, naturally!) etc? Lizzie x

    This looks so weird and good at the same time! None of us have tried bee pollen EVER so we’ll have to give it a go. We’ll let you know!

    Hmmm, I might try this before my morning work out. I have just been eating a spoonful of peanuts butter before, and it works okay, but sometimes throughout the entire workout, I will be burping up PB the whole time. Gross!

    I have to admit, this sounds pretty bizarre, but I will do anything for a little extra energy in the morning. Thanks for sharing :)
