Good health and even better vibes: Fuel the body and soul at Stephenville Nutrition & Energy.


By SARA VANDEN BERGE


Autumn Hall, owner of Stephenville Nutrition & Energy, is not only interested in helping customers lose weight and stay healthy, she's making sure they are fueled on the inside as well.


The 28-year-old entrepreneur opened the health-based nutrition bar in the Bosque River Center in October 2020 and sells energizing teas, meal shakes and healthy treats that taste great and help you stay fit.

But that’s not all.


Autumn has a degree in ministry and theology, and fueling her customers’ souls is an important part of her business model. She learned to connect with others while working her way through college as a bartender.


“People vented to me and basically laid out their issues and I was able to minister to them,” she told Beneath the Surface News.

Autumn would eventually combine her love for helping others, knack for mixing drinks and interest in health and fitness to open the place of her dreams – one that fuels the body and soul.


“My dad is a minister and I grew up in the church,” she said. “I wanted a place that is an open door to the community; a place where I am able to speak life into people and pray over them.


“My goal is to send customers out of here with a good, positive message.”

SHAKES, TEAS AND OTHER HEALTHY STUFF


Anyone paying attention to social media has certainly seen the posts of Stephenville Nutrition & Energy’s tasty treats and drinks.


In fact, customers who share a picture along with their location can get $1 off each purchase.

One of her most popular products are meal shakes, which contain 24 grams of protein, eight grams of natural sugar, 13 carbs, 21 vitamins and minerals and are all under 300 calories.


“They are filling and taste really good, especially for those with a sweet tooth,” she said. “They are great as far as macros and give your body everything you need after a workout.”


(And yeah. They are good for weight loss when used as a meal replacer.)

Chocolate-peanut butter and banana, double-stuffed Oreo and salted caramel macchiato are a few of her best sellers.


And then there are the teas, which are more like a juice designed to boost metabolism.


Each tea contains zero calories or sugar, but they do include a slew of vitamins and aloe for digestive support.


One of the most popular tea is the Bahama Mama, a tropical concoction of peach, orange and pineapple.


Lake Water, a delicious mix of orange, strawberry-watermelon and blue raspberry, is another fan favorite.

DID YOU SAY DONUTS AND WAFFLES?


Why, yes, she did.


If sinking your teeth into some deliciousness is more your speed, check out the hugely popular selection of protein donuts and waffles.


“I hand-make all of the protein donuts,” Autumn said. “They are low in calories and high in all of the good stuff.


“And the waffles come in all of the same flavors as the shakes.”

Stephenville Nutrition & Energy is open from 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday.


“We are closed on the Jesus Day,” she said.
