I’m really not a fan of meal replacement shakes. I strive for a whole food lifestyle. Something about knowing you’re getting pure, natural nutrition from the original source.
Now that my little one is mobile, it’s harder for me to prepare a decent breakfast when it’s just baby and me. I’m breastfeeding and if I wait to eat until her first nap, my blood sugar tanks. Of course, sometimes she is content playing with something and I can fry an egg and grab an apple, but usually she’s Indiana Jones on a mission to find the lost who-knows-what and it’s somewhere, anywhere in my house.
One thing I really like about Young Living is Balance Complete.
I’m really impressed with the ingredients, texture, and taste. I competed as a bodybuilder a few years ago and have tried well over 20 kinds of protein powders and nutrition shakes. They aren’t good for you. My GI system was a mess for a long time. Many of them have artificial sweeteners and preservatives. They’re grainy and clumpy no matter how much you shake or stir them, and they rarely taste good.
I took a photo of the Balance Complete powder just after I opened it to show that it’s not a bleached white powder.
I also took a photo of it after I stirred it with almond milk for less than 60 seconds. No clumps. And it really tastes good.
Balance Complete has come to my rescue on those crazy mornings when I really only have 10 seconds to scoop, pour, and stir.
