"As a mum of two myself, I know how difficult it can be to prepare healthy food when things get hectic. It is natural to put the needs of our kids ahead of our own but it is essential that as Mums, we ensure we eat the correct balance of nutrients to power us through our busy days.
Before having children, I was never a huge advocate of meal replacement shakes. In the haze of sleep deprivation and feeding schedules, I found the convenience of a shake meant that I could get the nutrition I needed. I felt better and had more energy because it meant that I was eating better and never skipping meals or snacks. They kept me going!
Although eating well prepared, nutritious meals made from whole foods is always going to be the optimal nutrition choice, this isn't always possible. The In Shape Mummy Health Shakes are a great way for us Mums to easily supplement our nutrition needs in a tasty way. When combined with a balanced diet, they can provide the vitamins, minerals, fibre and protein that we need to sustain energy levels and/or lose weight effectively and safely.
Having a quick and tasty option like the The In Shape Mummy Health Shake also helps to reduce the risk of reaching for fast foods or a high sugar snack in moments of weakness. The In Shape Mummy Health Shake contains less than one gram of sugar per serve while avoiding the addition of any nasty artificial sweeteners. This is impressive considering many meal replacement shakes contain over 40 grams per serve - that's over 10 teaspoons per shake!
A key feature for these shakes is that they contain organic pea and brown rice protein. Protein is essential for stabilising sugar levels, boosting energy levels and most importantly, keeping us full. Pea and brown rice protein provides a low allergenic vegan protein option that is more easily digested and generally better tolerated than other forms of protein. Personally, I had two babies who were both dairy intolerant and having a shake that is free from dairy was a lifesaver.
The In Shape Mummy Health Shakes also support breastfeeding with natural ingredients such as milk thistle assisting with healthy milk production. Important antioxidants, fibre and Omega-3's are provided by the inclusion of superfoods such as Acai Berries and Chia Seeds.
In Shape Mummy Health Shakes are an overall great addition to the diet of a Mum who wants to look after her health and well-being without missing out. They’re quick, they’re easy and they’re nutritious."
