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.  eboost collage

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?

    Interesting! i have never heard of eboost, but I like that it is not one of those 5 hour energy things that are full of junk! I often need a pick me up in the afternoon as I do my hard runs in the morning (sometimes up to 20 miles) and as I work as a coach, I am then standing on my feet all day. My poor legs get pretty tired! This would be helpful to give me a boost while I do! Thanks for bringing them to my attention!

      Tina, I can’t imagine how tired you must be after doing a long run and THEN coaching. If I run more than 15 miles or so, I am on the couch the rest of the day!!! Hope you try out EBOOST!

    Aw c’mon – the hat is KILLER! haha … well, it might be if it was 6 sizes smaller!

    I have heard of this before, but generally I am fine with water – I eliminated soda and coffee from my afternoon (still have morning coffee), but might have hot tea if it is cold.

    I laugh about the handstands … just because of picturing myself, not you! 🙂 I take walks – using remote restrooms is one of my tricks to keep myself moving. I’ll be moving desks to be with the team on my new project rather than half-way across the facility, so will need to figure out how to compensate for the reduced walking. All about ‘getting in the steps’ … 🙂

    And I DEFINITELY think you should wear the hat on a date or to a meeting … but more to the side to emphasize just how ‘gangsta’ you are!

      Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a winner!!! I can’t tell you how much this post made me laugh when I read it yesterday morning. Something about the thought of MICHAEL saying “emphasize just how ‘gangsta’ you are” cracked me up :). Looks like Danny and/ or Chris will have a funky new hat – email me your address! And good for you for thinking about getting in the steps despite moving closer to your team!

    Meg. You can rest assured that you will not accidentally get run over by a vehicle with that hat on . Then again, the driver could be blinded by it, or may deliberately run you down in the spirit of ecological improvement! This product sounds like something that may be a welcome addition in our Firm’s kitchen.

      Haha, Gary, don’t worry, I will not be killed in the spirit of ecological improvement since I’m giving the hat away. I don’t think Kevin was very amused by how I looked in it!

    Haha love the hat! I think you can make it work. This looks like a great product because I know with working late sometimes I really struggle for energy these days! I don’t always want to drink coffee mid-day even though sometimes I have to.

    Thanks for the discount code! I’m definitely going to try it out. I tried the maca and I didn’t have great results and some unwanted side effects. I’ll let you know how it goes!!
