A surge of nutrition and smiles

Amy Day, owner of Everyday Nutrition, says the average person does not practice nutritional eating and stay hydrated. Unfortunately, says Day, most of us are missing out on vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbs, the essentials that provide energy and help support a healthy lifestyle.

A palpable positive energy hits you as soon as you walk through the entrance of Everyday Nutrition smoothie bar on Bayou Boulevard, courtesy of owner Amy Day and the peppy atmosphere she’s mastered.

As patrons pass the large floral mural with its cursive message, “Good Vibes Only,” a boisterous greeting of “Hi! How are you today?” is the first order of the day.

“I know every person who walks through those doors,” Day said as she greeted a regular customer and his Bernedoodle, Buster. “It’s a very personal experience here.”

After meet and greets, “every” customer is served a nutritious Herbalife Nutrition meal of a soothing shot of aloe, a calorie-burning energy tea and a 200-calorie shake.

“The whole set replaces a meal,” Day explained. “Aloe helps digestion and the absorption of nutrients; the tea provides B6 and B12, biotin and collagen; and the shake has 24 grams of protein, 21 vitamins and minerals and 13 net carbs.”

Day is a mega fan of Herbalife Nutrition plant-based products, which she and her employees use to create the vast selection of basic and advanced concoctions on Everyday Nutrition’s menu.

The offering of teas and shakes captures your attention with fascinating names, including Electric Lemonade, Energizer Bunny, Salty Mermaid, Elvis, Monkey Oats and Rolo.

“The average human is eating but not getting the proper nutrition,” Day said. “They are missing vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbs, the things that give them energy and help support a healthy lifestyle. And they are not hydrated.”

Day’s knowledge of living a healthy life expanded about five years ago when she was a stay-at-home mother who discovered Herbalife Nutrition products at Patriot Nutrition in Pace.

“I was on a health journey when I found them,” Day said. “Patriot Nutrition was welcoming, and I loved the products, experience, and their business model. I became Patriot Nutrition’s No. 1 customer and sent my friends and family there. Then they gave me the opportunity to partner with them, basically training me to run a successful Herbalife Nutrition business.”

After working for Patriot Nutrition for over a year, Day took the plunge and opened Everyday Nutrition in May 2021. And she opened up shop at Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital near her Bayou location.

“I feel like Herbalife is a great opportunity,” Day said. “Gratefully, we are doing well here. We served 101 people who walked through the door yesterday.”

While Day’s goal is to expand her easy, grab-and-go business across Pensacola, she added that she can also help you get Herbalife Nutrition in your own kitchen, teach you how to make it and help with meal plans.

Check out her Everyday Update videos on Facebook, especially the one on the “Summer Shred.” It’s found under the name Everyday Pensacola.
