My Latest Fascinating Discoveries: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
A Low-Calorie Smoothie That Tastes Good *And* Actually Fills You Up
I recently made a quick, delicious, low-calorie smoothie that actually tastes much more calorie-dense than it is.
I posted about it and the recipe on Instagram, but I wanted to share the recipe here as well and make sure you saw it – it's that tasty.
The recipe? The only ingredients you really need are blueberries, ice, coconut yogurt, stevia, collagen, and sea salt. I also recommend adding a scoop of Kion powdered colostrum if you have it on hand, for extra gut-nourishing creaminess. Top with cacao nibs, coconut flakes, and frozen blueberries, if you happen to like crunchies.
The one addition I would have made to keep the appetite satiated for about eight hours would’ve been some kind of powdered ketones, but I didn’t have those on hand.
Blend in a blender like the Ninja so that you introduce a bunch of air and volume to it at about the consistency of ice cream. I fed this one to Wild Health’s Matt Dawson before our podcast together and he gave two big thumbs up. :-)
What's New With The Sleeping App I Still Use Every Night
There aren’t many items I own that I consider to be so-called “non-negotiable” biohacks in my daily routine…
…but NuCalm is undoubtedly one of them.
Since I first met my friend Jim Poole of NuCalm in early 2019 and found the most powerful relaxation, meditation, and sleeping app I've ever used (that I still use every single night), and recorded this podcast and this podcast with him, he has launched more products in the past year than he has launched in the previous five years combined. Jim has quadrupled his product portfolio and gone from 8,000 NuCalm customers to over 85,000 in just the last 11 months.
Here's the latest from Jim and the NuCalm team:
1. NuCalm 3.0 Master Neuroacoustic Software – all of the journeys inside Recharge, Reboot, and Rescue. You can use NuCalm Rescue 30, 50, 70 with about 90% of all the NuCalm experiences.
2. NuCalm 2.0 Master Environmental Neuroacoustic Software – all environmental journeys designed for musicians.
3. Focus Master Neuroacoustic Software – Focus paces your brain waves between 15Hz – 20Hz for optimal clarity, concentration, comprehension, and neuroplasticity. You can listen to these with headphones for hours each day while working!
4. DEEP SLEEP Master Neuroacoustic Software – three 50-minute journeys. Listen to these with a speaker in your bedroom to improve your deep sleep, sleep efficiency, and reduce your sleep latency.
5. Ignite Master Neuroacoustic Software – all of the Ignite journeys and all of my confidential CEO neuroacoustic software journeys Jim had made to stay in peak mental condition day in and day out.
6. KwikState Powered by NuCalm – this combines best-in-class neuroscience technology with best-in-class learning methodology to enable you to master your mind—and own the day—as never before. NuCalm partnered with Jim Kwik, famed brain coach, to develop states specifically designed to help you think better, learn more, feel better, and perform better with your brain.
Want to try all of the above and many of the other new features of NuCalm for yourself? You can 65% off the first month of any new monthly subscription and 25% off any annual subscription. Click here to get started now. This one of my top relaxation and sleep hacks, especially on a busy day, and though I don't use the Kwik or Ignite features as much as the sleep, recovery, reboot and relaxation features, if you need an energy “pick me up” or workout music, etc. those also work really well. Enjoy!

::: Save 20% on an app designed to help you activate your best, every day :::
I’m really excited about today’s sponsor: Heroic, Brian Johnson’s new app that’s making personal development simple (and fun!).
Whether you want to start a fitness habit, increase your effectiveness at work, or be more present with your family, Heroic gives you the tools and knowledge to close the gap.
Why choose Heroic?
So that you can get more wisdom in less time, in the ways that are most convenient for you.
What really counts is putting that wisdom into practice. That is why Heroic built an app, designed by one of the world’s best product design agencies (who also helped create Slack, Tinder, and UberEats). The app makes all that wisdom accessible, and then (most importantly!), you can use Heroic’s world-class habit-tracking and behavioral design tools to actually apply that wisdom to your life, in a way that works.
In fact, research done in partnership with a premier wellness lab shows that hitting just three targets a day on the app, for one month, can help you be 40% more energized, 20% more productive, and 15% more connected. Imagine moving through your life with more vigor and strength, bringing increased focus, and a connection to what’s truly important to you.

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina
I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my new book, Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits for Spiritual Stamina.
This book was written and inspired by my own personal temptations, struggles, and failures, and informed by what I’ve studied and learned along the way.
It’s my deepest wish and prayer that it touches your life and gives you the tools and tactics you need to build your own spiritual stamina, strap on your sword, trust God and experience the peace, love, and joy of His creation.
If Endure does make even the smallest impact on your life, I would love it if you could help me spread the word far and wide, by:
- Leaving a review on Amazon
- Sharing the book on social media and tagging me (@bengreenfieldfitness)
- Buying a copy for your friends and family
Thanks again for all your support!
P.S. I can also give special discounts for bulk purchases of my books. So, if you would like to use them for a Bible study or a book club, please email pu[email protected], and my team will get you set up.
