Don’t hibernate this winter! 5 ways to keep your energy up…
1st December 2017
It’s that time of the year again… As the days grow shorter and the winter blues start kicking in, many of us struggle to keep our energy levels up throughout the cold, winter season. So, we’ve rounded up five Squirrel tips to help you venture out of your treehouse this winter! 1. Matcha Latte Swap your morning coffee for a deliciously warming cup of Matcha Latte! Matcha is a form of green tea containing an amino acid called L-theanine that helps you feel more focused, calm and energised. It’s a great way of giving you a natural boost of energy, without the anxious and jittery side effects commonly caused by coffee.
2. Egg Bowls Why not kick-start your day with an energising egg bowl for breakfast? Head over to our Treehouse at Squirrel on those cold, winter mornings for a choice of kale, feta or salmon egg bowls! Eggs are a great source of protein to help balance blood sugar levels from the very start of the day.
3. Sporty Squirrel Smoothie Brighten up your breakfast with a Sporty Squirrel smoothie, infused with a nourishing blend of banana, cacao, vanilla almond butter, cinnamon, almond milk and coconut nectar. Cacao contains magnesium which enhances energy production, while the protein in almond butter and milk helps balance blood sugar levels. Banana is also included for both fast and slow release of carbohydrates.
4. Energy Balls Looking for a post-workout pick-me-up or a quick afternoon snack? Keep our flavoursome energy balls squirreled away to keep you going throughout the day! Go nuts and enjoy our selection of Squirrel flavours: cacao & spirulina, coconut & cashew and cardamom & apricot.
5. Any of our Treehouse Favourites! Fill your winter lunches with a delicious variety of Squirrel salads, grain bowls, and seasonal specials! Our Treehouse Favourites have all been designed with a balance of proteins, low-glycaemic index carbohydrates and sources of food fats, helping you stay full and energised for the rest of the day.
