Super Bowl champion with the New Orleans Saints Thomas Morstead announced earlier this week that he has teamed up with Main Squeeze Juice Company, as a minority partner. Morstead is a father of four who ranks his, and his families, nutrition among his top priorities. When asked why he decided to partner with the New Orleans based juice and smoothie bar franchise Morstead had this to say:
“As my career has progressed, I’ve learned more and more about the importance of nutrition as a foundation to being in optimal shape for the season,” Morstead said. “As soon as Main Squeeze opened near my home in Metairie, it became a staple in my diet–and that of my family’s. To have the opportunity to work with a company with which I share the same core beliefs and values makes it more than just a business opportunity for me.”
“New Orleans is home for myself, my wife, Lauren, and our kids. To be able to invest in a company born in our hometown and one that is giving locals a convenient way to eat nutritiously is something I’m really excited about,” Morstead added. “The longer I play in the league and as my kids keep growing, I feel a responsibility to share all that I’ve learned about the importance of committing to a healthy diet with fans in New Orleans and beyond. When I started my career, I placed so much emphasis on the on- and off-field workouts. While those things are of the utmost importance, nutrition has become the foundation of how I take care of my body as a professional athlete–and Main Squeeze has absolutely become a staple in the diet aspect of my regimen.”
Morstead is not the only pro-athlete to attach themselves to the Main Squeeze Juice Company. Last spring, former New Orleans Saint Marques Colston announced his partnership and collaboration with the company.
Main Squeeze’s mission is to make health easier, and the company’s nutritionist-designed, superfood-centric menu does exactly that by offering a daily source of plant-based nutrition packed with natural and quick energy.
