Do you find yourself drudging through your work day? Maybe the 2pm energy crash is a bit too familiar?
My favorite way to boost my spirits in the mid-afternoon is to sit out in the sun, for 10 minutes or so, and sip on a healthy, refreshing drink.
I rest my case.
AND I have just the refreshingly light drink recipe to kick start your 10-minute energy-boosting journey.
This drink SCREAMS summer, health and happiness, all rolled up into one pretty pink package.
(I have a thing for pretty pink foods if you haven’t noticed.)
For more light smoothies and guides on how to use juices and smoothies to improve your well being, get my book, Vibrant Life Cleanse Program & Cookbook.
This light watermelon smoothie recipe is a perfect companion for a moment of soaking up the rays and enjoying all that summer has to offer.

Lately, my drink of choice for my energy-boosting sessions has been a bottle of RISE Kombucha (I’m on day 21 of 30 of the kombucha challenge that I mentioned over here).
BUT if I can squeeze in two slots into my day, I whip up a quick light smoothie for the sun action.
Using juice and smoothies is how I maintain healthy, balanced energy throughout the day – no more 2pm crashes, overeating, binging or guilt. Start your journey to a healthy, balanced you.
Now I want to hear from you (because I’m sure you have fabulous tricks up our sleeve that will benefit all of us) –
How do you combat the 2pm energy crash?
Do you find it harder to eat healthy, or make choices you feel proud of, when you’re tired, drained or maxed out?
