So, this morning I knew that I wanted to go for a run but I also knew that I wanted a breakfast that would power me up! Although I ditched my traditional oatmeal topped with fruit, I instead decided to dig into my freezer and try the Energy Boost I had bought just a week ago. Happy that I did not need to peruse my refrigerator or cabinet for much prepping., Everything I needed was already in the Energy Boost packet which comes with a delightful assortment of fruits and some veggies/greens.
Of course, I wanted to add some of my non sweetened milk combined with ice and a cinnamon (who doesn’t enjoy cinnamon?!). The neat thing about Energy Boost is that it contains 0 Added Sugar (Total Sugar is 22 g). In addition, it also offers an assortment of nutrition from the fruits and vegetables, Sodium is fairly low at 35 mg and Carbs are 32 g, which for me works great right before an extensive run and strength training workout to follow. Energy Boost is also packaged/portioned out for you, so you have all that is needed in each package. Hassle free!
Smoothies are ideal because of the blended nutrition they offer, but also the quick prep time. Especially, when you are looking for a quick “pick-me-up” right before a workout. So, for me a product such as Energy Boost, helps me sustain the energy level I need to complete a run or get into one of my workouts. Glad I tried it and hope you enjoyed the review.
So, what gives you the BOOST that you need before a run/workout?!
