Nutrition On The Go: How To Select A Healthy Meal Replacement

The world has gone crazy for meal replacement drinks but they are not all created equal. Some meal replacement shakes slow you down and even put on weight that you're trying to lose. 

Meal replacement shakes, in the simplest terms, are “drinks” that are consumed instead of solid food. The demand for them is growing by the day and that’s because more and more people are realising how useful they can be.

From saving time, money, to increasing productivity and boosting energy... benefits are endless.

If you want to know more about why you should get a meal replacement and who to select the best one, stay with me as I go through all of the benefits that come with replacing your meals with healthy drinks.

What is a meal replacement?

A meal replacement is a convenient way to get all the nutrients you need in one drink. They're high in protein and full of healthy calories (maybe not all of them), so they can be used to replace one meal or as a snack.

Some meal replacements can be used to make delicious snacks like cookies, brownies etc.

The best way to make a healthy meal replacement is to make them at home.

Meal replacements are a great way to eat healthy on the go--they're portable and easy to take with you wherever you go! No cooking. No cleaning up.

Superfoods meal replacement vs normal meal replacement

If you're looking for a healthy meal replacement, superfoods meal replacement is the best. Because superfoods meal replacements are packed with vital micronutrients for a healthy life. A normal meal replacement may contain one or two superfoods but not all of them. Some examples of these include:

  • Superfoods like blueberries, goji berries and acai berry which contain antioxidants to help fight free radicals in your body.

  • Protein powder (rice protein) which is essential for muscle growth and repair that keeps you full longer than other foods do because they take longer to digest than carbohydrates or fats do.

  • Healthy fatty acids found in nuts are great at lowering cholesterol levels while also improving heart health by reducing inflammation within blood vessels caused by atherosclerosis (hardening).

In some cases, superfood meal replacement options are considered “dietary supplements”. According to nutritional experts, dietary supplements are defined as any product that has vitamins, amino acids, or minerals. Some people use meal replacement shakes to boost their vitamin and mineral intake, not to lose weight, but to supplement their diet.

One of the best ways to choose the right superfood meal replacement for your needs is to first identify your goals. Do you want to eat healthy on the go? Do you want to boost your nutrition intake? Do you need more energy for a workout? Do you want to peel off the pounds safely? Are you skipping meals? Having a specific goal in mind will help you to choose the right meal replacement to suit your needs.

Next, read the nutrition labels. Look for meal replacement options that are rich in protein, high in fiber, and have the right combination of essential nutrients. Don't shop by price. Instead, shop by nutrition and QUALITY.

How to replace a meal with a healthy drink and snacks

A healthy meal replacement drink can be a great substitute for one of your daily meals. The key to replacing a meal with a healthy drink is that it should contain protein, fibre, healthy fats and most importantly superfoods. When it comes to adding extra punch with nutritional values superfoods are truly a game changer. They pack so many nutrients, tribal members have been using them for centuries.

If you're used to eating breakfast at home before work or school then try switching out your usual cereal with some kind of meal replacement shake or smoothie instead! If lunchtime rolls around and you find yourself hungry again as soon as 2pm hits then consider packing yourself an apple slices with peanut butter instead! Or if dinner time rolls around but there's no way anyone could eat another plate full of food after having already had lunch earlier than usual then maybe try having some yogurt mixed with berries instead?

I often make healthy protein superfoods balls using my GaiaMeal. Its great as a team time snack or before my workout.
