Creative Juices

by Elena Sulin

Likely to work from 9AM until eternity busting the right side of your brain like the creative beast you are? If so, make sure you stay hydrated and nourished.

How easy is it to slip into your busy week munching on a stale croissant from the office breakfast five days ago? (Basically, if it’s there no one wants it, it’s no gift from above.)

Here are five easy recipes for you to blend at home and take with you to work. So handy at making sure you are working your prefrontal cortex to the max.

Note! All ratios in recipes are adjustable. Make ‘em how you like ‘em and be the creative that you really are.


Keen to try but not too into buying a bunch of jars of things you never heard of? Try this one, it will make you feel fresh and full of ideas! You can even skip the plant-based protein powder – just add peanut butter.





Plant-based protein powder

Pro tip! Try rice protein powder. Lighter on the stomach (and the office) than pea protein.


The 3PM office afternoon sugar crave is no joke. If you didn’t reach for the stale croissant in the morning, you will now. Instead of leaving you with a lust for creative spurts and the next meeting with your client – this treat will leave you hanging like a lacklustre piece of old cloth. So steer away and towards this delicious smoothie instead. Jam-packed with antioxidants and fiber, this smoothie will take you from gloomy to glowy in no time.

Shaved fresh ginger

Pro tip! Add some organic apple cider vinegar into your potion to give it extra probiotics and enzymes.

A smoothie a day will only get you so far but an inspiring office space will take you all the way.
