Meal replacements have become increasingly popular in recent years, as the general public have raised their consciousness around fitness, diet and nutrition.
Not only do meal replacements have the advantage of delivering a wide range of vitamins, minerals and nutrients which would otherwise only be accessible by eating an extensive, vast range of foods, but they can deliver these in precise quantities, allowing individuals to meticulously plan their dietary intake.
Today we’re exploring just a few of our favourite meal replacements, with varieties suitable for a wide range of lifestyles, including vegan, GMO free, soy free and dairy free.
Living Fuel SuperGreens
Green is good. Whether you’re a fan of matcha, spirulina, chlorella, broccoli or kale, foods rich in chlorophyll are typically great for your body and mind. Unfortunately, getting all of this goodness into your diet isn’t easy and can take a long time to prepare into a shake or meal - careful measuring your powders and chopping your veggies.
To make things a little easier, Living Fuel SuperGreens is the ideal solution. Just two simple scoops and boom! You’ve got yourself a complete meal’s worth of dense nutrition, which includes just about every green food you could possibly want - from Icelandic kelp to barley grass juice.
Perhaps you already get plenty of greens in your diet and are looking for something a bit different? In which case, why not explore Living Fuel SuperBerry Ultimate. Cranberries, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries, all combined with resveratrol from grape seed extract provide an exciting combination of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals in a highly bioavailable form.
Not only is SuperBerry an excellent meal replacement, but is also awesome as a supplement in itself, which you can use to supercharge your daily smoothie, juice or coconut water.
Garden of Life All in One
While the meal replacements we’ve discussed so far have their own particular niches, Garden of Life All in One is a truly broad meal replacement, made from 44 fruits and vegetables, 13 organic sprouted grains, seeds and legumes, and a wide range of digestive enzymes and probiotic bacteria. Plus it’s available in two delicious flavours - chocolate and lightly sweet
All in One is also rich in plant protein, alongside the vitamins and minerals you would expect, making it the ideal post-workout meal. Why not add it to your regular protein shake to empower it with a range of additional nutrients you’d struggle to get into your body otherwise?
