Nothing gets me out of bed in the morning like the thought of my morning coffee. But I find that the crash I get a few hours later is ruining my day and when I grab an unhealthy energy shot to give me a boost I’m left feeling guilty.
I’m tired of being tired, I’m tired of drinking unhealthy energy drinks, and I’m tired of feeling guilty.
Now when I choose my energy drink I only accept the best. An energy drink shouldn’t be something you sacrifice your health for so you can function, but something that enhances your performance and boosts your mood.
What is the first step to living a healthier guilt-free life?
The first decision you make in the morning can impact the decisions you make for the rest of the day. When it comes to your morning energy drink it can be a choice between a few jittery hours before a crash or long-lasting energy and focus that fuels your body.
Don’t sacrifice your health for a quick caffeine fix, choose all-natural, plant-based energy shots to not just keep you going but properly sustained and healthy for your daily and long term needs.
Things to look for in a healthy energy shot
- Organic caffeine
- All-natural ingredients and natural juices
- Reusable or recyclable packaging
L-Theanine is the naturally occurring amino acid also found in green tea that can improve your focus and productivity and avoid jitters and crashes. All-natural ingredients are cleaner for the environment and for your body.
Drinking healthy gives you a clear conscience. Wouldn’t you want to drink something every day that gives you a clear mind, body, and soul? Even something seemingly small like an energy shot can influence your attitude, focus, and mood.
Healthy energy inspires your efficiency, productivity, and focus. If your energy source doesn’t inspire you to kick start your morning, work out, or boost your work productivity then you should reconsider what you are putting in your body.
Things to avoid in your energy drinks
- Dairy and animal products
- Added sugars
- Artificial flavors
- Single-use disposable plastics
Lessen the impact you have on the planet by choosing an energy drink that isn’t made from dairy or other animal products.
What is the environmental impact of your daily energy boost? Is your caffeine served in a single-use plastic cup? Does your coffee order fill you up on added sugars, calories, preservatives, and dairy?
Wouldn’t you rather have energy from all-natural ingredients that make you feel good all day without the crash?
Clean eating is healthy eating
Eating clean is good for you and the environment and your morning coffee or energy drink is no exception. Is your energy drink healthy for you and the environment?
Your energy drink should reflect your clean eating lifestyle whether that is vegan, vegetarian, plant-based, or clean eating. Even if you don’t follow a strict diet your small everyday choices make a difference for yourself and the environment. Choosing a healthy energy drink can be the first and easiest step towards living a healthier lifestyle.
When choosing an energy boost, the amount of caffeine shouldn’t be your only determining factor. Pick a drink that can make your body feel good and have a long-lasting beneficial effect without the jitters and sugar crash. Your energy drink should fuel your body and soul and be made with natural ingredients, not filled with preservatives. Your best choice is 100% plant-based ingredients that you know and trust.
Don’t settle for a drink that makes you feel bad later in the day, choose a healthy energy drink that can sustain you, and make you feel great.
How do your energy drinks compare to healthy energy shots? Escape the cycle of jitters, crashes, and guilt. Choose the healthier option.
