Energy Boosting Snacks Made with Moringa
These days many of us find ourselves reaching for the second or third cup of coffee earlier and earlier each day. Our days fill up with more items on the agenda leaving many of us feeling energy-depleted, tired, and restless. And with the uptick in coffee often comes increased jitters, less sleep, and overall fatigue. To avoid this, we’ve worked diligently to identify other natural sources of energy that don’t result in the negative side-effects one often experiences from coffee.
This is where moringa comes into play. For anyone who may be unfamiliar, moringa is a super green said to be even more nutrient-dense than kale. The fast-growing, leafy tree is rich in iron, potassium, calcium, vitamins, and antioxidants. Containing all nine essential amino acids, moringa is also a source of complete plant protein. It is shown to provide powerful anti-inflammatory benefits, including healing properties similar to those of turmeric. The culmination of these powerful properties fuel your body, giving you a natural energy boost.
This week, we’re sharing a few of our favorite energy-boosting moringa sips and snacks in partnership with our friends at Kuli Kuli. Kuli Kuli is the world’s leading moringa brand, offering moringa powders, bars, smoothie mixes, teas, and more. Not only do they source fresh moringa leaves and maintain strict quality control standards, Kuli Kuli’s moringa supports the livelihoods of farmers all over the world, working with family farmers and women’s cooperatives in rural areas.
Psst! We’re offering a giveaway with Kuli Kuli this week. Read the full blog post for details on how to enter and win some So Good So You shots and Kuli Kuli Moringa Energy Bars!
The Energy Shot: The equivalent to a cup of coffee in terms of caffeine content, the Energy shot is our go-to for a quick and easy energy boost. The organic Coffeeberry in tandem with the moringa ingredient promotes energy levels.
