Start your morning right with a good cup of coffee

Add ice cubes and milk into a cup before layering the foamy mixture on top.
Fuel through your meetings with energy-boosting bites
We know how taxing Zoom meetings can get which is why you’ll need a remedy to combat the fatigue! It’s always a good idea to snack on energy bars before you immerse yourself into back-to-back calls as they are rich with vitamins and nutrients that provide a nutritious, satisfying pick-me-up. If you want an extra dose of antioxidants, incorporate dates, nuts and dried fruits into your energy bars by following the recipe below!
In a food processor, add nuts, dried fruit, and dates and pulse for a few times before processing continuously for 1-2 minutes to form a ball.
Press the dough on a thick square and let it chill for at least an hour or overnight.
Re-energise with short breaks
We feel you! Work might seem miserable if you have to be 100% productive and efficient all the time hence we recommend taking short breaks throughout the day. Doing so can increase productivity and creative levels, and we find that adding in a sweet treat can also improve your overall happiness and productivity! Here’s a quick and simple Peanut Butter Cookie Date Bites recipe that you can whip up easily in between your breaks.
Blend dates in a food processor to form a paste. Add in peanuts and salt and continue to blend to achieve a fine texture.
Using damp hands, roll the mixture into bite-sized balls.
Wind down by experimenting with new recipes
