A new year means new beginnings and new goals. Like many others, my New Year's resolution always entails improving my health and fitness in one way or another.
If you are looking to eat healthier, lose weight or gain energy, Energy Spot is a place you will want to try. And there are now two locations in Hendricks County, Indiana, in Brownsburg and Plainfield.
I first visited Energy Spot shortly after they opened last summer. I went right after a morning workout and had not eaten breakfast or had my morning coffee so I decided to get a combo that included a meal replacement smoothie, energy bomb and aloe shot.
I chose the chocolate-covered strawberry. It was delicious and filling. I have also tried the strawberry cheesecake and cinnamon toast crush. Each of these flavors are flavorful and delicious, but the chocolate-covered strawberry is my favorite so far.
For my energy bomb flavor, I went with strawberry crush. I have yet to try another flavor. Trust me on this one, strawberry crush is great and has just the right amount of sweetness to it.
Lastly, I decided to go with an aloe shot, despite being extremely skeptical. I had no idea what the benefits were, mainly because I had never heard of it.
However, the staff at Energy Spot are extremely knowledgeable and will help answer any questions you may have. I will cover the benefits of these products a little later. But grapefruit has become my go-to flavor for the aloe shot.
The Ordering Process
Trying somewhere new can always be a little intimidating but the ordering process is really simple. There are three different combos. Each combo includes a meal replacement smoothie, energy beverage of your choice and shot of aloe.
The Energy Spot offers more than 75 different smoothie options. Flavors are broken down into different categories like, chocolate lovers, breakfast flavors, fruity flavors, peanut butter, sweets and coffee. This helps narrow down your decision.
The only difference in the combos are the type of energy you choose.
Choose an energy bomb for mental clarity and focus, an energy tea for boosting metabolism or an iced coffee that contains only 2 grams of sugar and only 100 calories.
If caffeine isn't your thing, they also offer peppermint tea, a protein beverage mix, a collagen/biotin beauty booster and much more. If you prefer to just have one beverage, you can order each of these separately.
Each product on the menu at Energy Spot offers different benefits. Therefore, each person will benefit from Energy Spot differently. If you are looking to lose weight or gain muscle, you will should consider the meal replacement smoothies. The smoothies are 250 calories or less, have 6-13 grams of sugar, 10 net carbs and offer 17 grams of protein and 21 different vitamins and minerals.
After losing more than 40 pounds in six months, the smoothies inspired the owner Brian and his wife Autumn to open Energy Spot!
If you are a coffee addict like me or enjoy energy drinks, you will love the teas, coffee and energy bombs. The energy bombs contain 95 MG of caffeine, help boost energy (without the crash), boost mental focus and awareness and contain Biotin/B12 which helps with the health of hair and nails and helps manage blood sugar levels, along with many other benefits.
As I mentioned above, the energy tea will help boost your metabolism and helps burn 80-100 calories. The iced coffee has only 2 grams of sugar and only 100 calories. I have yet to try the coffee or tea but look forward to trying them in the future.
Lastly, the aloe shot doesn't get the attention it deserves. It is refreshing and is great for digestion.
With so many different flavors and the variety of drink options you can't go wrong here. Give Energy Spot a try today.
