We’ve all have those days where 3pm rolls around and we can’t think about anything besides a nap. Am I right? I love my one cup of coffee every morning, but when the afternoon rolls around, coffee sometimes loses its appeal. If I’m cold, I’ll reach for a cup of tea, but when I really need a boost, I open up a packet of EBOOST. Here’s me on Tuesday, heading to my Girls on the Run practice with a much-needed EBOOST … those girls have energy!
When I worked in consulting, I would always have EBOOST packets in my bag, and often stocked my team rooms with them, too. (In my new job, I actually do jumping jacks and handstands when I need a boost, but I still turn to EBOOST, too!) They taste delicious (pink lemonade is my favorite flavor, but acai pomegranate is a close second!), and have about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee (110mg per packet). When I first heard about the product, I was sure it was just another energy drink loaded with tons of chemicals, artificial ingredients, and preservatives that I didn’t want to put in my body, or that it was loaded with added sugar, which I try to avoid.
When I researched the company, though, I was pleased to see that EBOOST is all-natural and gets its caffeine from green tea, green coffee bean extracts, quercetin, and Vitamin B-12 extracts (which I discussed briefly in my supplement post). EBOOST has no artificial flavors or colors (it’s flavored by stevia, which I discuss here, and colored by natural beta carotene). The product is gluten-free, soy-free, and lactose-free, has more electrolytes than coconut water, and contains potassium, zinc, selenium, chromium, and Vitamins C, D, B6, and B12. It has 10 calories per packet, and I usually mix it with a huge bottle of water (the recommended 12 ounces tastes a bit too sweet for my taste).
It sounds pretty much perfect, right? Honestly, I do love the product. Yes, in a perfect world, I would limit my consumption of stevia, and I would only drink water. However, sometimes I just need a little burst of energy without a bunch of added junk or sugar, and for me, EBOOST is a tasty and healthy way to achieve this goal.
As much as I love EBOOST, this hat is … um … not me. So, the person to make me laugh hardest in the comments will get the t-shirt (size large), the hat, and an extra bonus from me in the mail! Anywhere in the world, but I’ll send it super slow and as-cheap-as-possible if you’re not in the US!
So tell me in the comments … What do you do when you need a burst of energy? Do you think I should wear this hat on my next date with Kevin or important meeting?
