Where does all of your energy come from? I ask my husband this question all the time. Chris is like a super dad. He works the night shift of a very demanding and dangerous public safety job, he helps me around the house and still, somehow, finds the energy to throw on a Spiderman costume to run laps around the living room with Aidan. I only wish I had a fraction of the energy that he has! But the answer to his question is not a great one. Chris basically lives off of those humongous chemical filled energy drinks. The smell of those things is enough to set off my morning sickness. I’m not entirely sure how anyone can drink one of those, let alone the three he sometimes consumes. Being the wonderful wife that I am, I worry about him. They can’t be good for him, right? After digging into the ingredients a bit, I decided that there had to be a better option. That’s when 5-hour Energy shots came in to our lives!
5-hour Energy shots are the perfect dietary supplement to provide you with hours of energy. They contain a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids and other nutrients. Chris hates drinking his calories, so the fact that they have zero sugar, zero carbs and only 4 calories is a real hit with him! The shots are on the smaller side, being just under 2oz. They are the perfect size for gulping down in one shot. They come in yummy flavors like Pink Lemonade, Lemon-Lime and Pomegranate, among others, they are also great for creating energy filled concoctions. For Chris, I created an energy packed Grapefruit Lemonade. I used 6oz. of fresh and vitamin packed grapefruit juice and 1 shot of Pink Lemonade 5-hour Energy. Chris loved it, and I can’t wait until the baby gets here to try it for myself! I know I’m going to need it!
