I always believed in the “you are what you eat” theory and that nutrition is a key player in our wellbeing. Backed up by science and focusing on a certain area or problem, the right nutrition can be a lifesaver. Not only on physical but mental level too.
When Rik, the cheerful main guy behind HAPS contacted me, I was just having my annual dip in good old spring fatigue. As a mum of two mini energy bombs, I only have busy days. Yup, call it a cliche, but it’s a 24/7 duty. Luckily, I haven’t been physically ill lately, but mentally, it’s a challenge. Especially, if you’re sleep deprived, which I am. Rik has also fought his own fights with anxiety when he decided to develop HAPS with the help of nutritional experts.
HAPS is yummy fruit drink designed to help improve low mood and boost wellbeing. Containing only Baobab, Mango, Pear, Pineapple, Guava, Banana, Griffonia Seed Extract [5-HTP], Ionic Electrolytes, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 C, D, Zinc, Natural Flavour, Stevia. And nothing else. No bulking agents and cheap chemicals. All ingredients can be found in our food (or is a food) however, we can’t get enough or can’t absorb enough.
I loved the drink just by itself, it’s tasty and refreshing. I drank it instead of my post lunch coffee and I felt quite energetic even at 21:30.
I thought even though the drink is very tasty, maybe it can be more versatile than that. It can be added to smoothies or yogurts. So next morning, I prepared this yummy breakfast bowl:
1 sachet of HAPS SuperFruits drink
half of a ripen mango
handful of blueberries
4 handfuls of organic puffed brown rice
3-4 tbsp of greek yogurt
1 tbsp of ground almonds
With a handmixer, combine the yogurt, HAPS drink powder, banana and mango. Leave a few bits for decoration. Add the puffed rice. Arrange everything else nicely on your plate. Ta-daa!
Doing Good on the HAPS way
Let’s not forget about mentioning this. When I review a product, I highly appreciate when the brand does puts some effort into corporate responsibility. HAPS is sourcing the ingredients responsibly, not harming the Earth and they are all 100% natural.
