How often have you skipped breakfast or turned to quick convenience food because you were in a rush? Breakfast really is an important meal of the day and sets you up for the day ahead. Can you be sure you’re getting the right balance of nutrients from your breakfast? That’s where Herbalife come in with their range of products.

Most people probably miss breakfast because they don’t have time to make something fresh, tasty and nutritious like poached eggs and smoked salmon on toast. The Formula 1 shake is a quick and easy way of having a nutritious breakfast as part of a calorie controlled diet. The shake is available in 9 different flavours so there’s one to suit everyone’s tastes! With so many different flavours, there’s endless combinations to try. Shakes don’t have to be boring… you can add fruit, spices, oats, dried fruit or seeds! There’s even a recipe for the festive season.

The thing I like about the Formula 1 shake is how quick and easy it is to make up even when you add fruit and other ingredients. Each Formula 1 shake is high in protein (18g per serving) from dairy and soy which helps build lean muscle and is only 220 calories per serving. What’s more it’s packed with essential vitamins and minerals to help you maintain a healthy diet and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. You might be thinking how can a  shake fill you up? Formula 1 is nutritionally balanced and its protein rich so helps you feel fuller for longer. They even do a free from Formula 1, which is free from lactose, gluten and soy.

As part of a morning routine, you can also incorporate a herbal beverage which is infused with green and black tea along with plant extracts intended to revive and refresh. You can make this drink either hot or cold, but I much prefer it cold as it tastes just like tropical squash and its available in 4 different flavours! It contains caffeine to help improve concentration and alertness. And the best part, its only 6 calories!

If you’re anything like me, you’ll struggle to get anywhere near to the recommended daily water intake of 2 litres. For me, the aloe mango concentrate drink is a great way of turning plain old water into a more interesting and tasty drink. By adding  natural sweetness I think you’re more likely to drink more therefore helping you achieve that daily 2 litre goal. It contains no added sugar and is low in calories. Make sure you check Herbalife’s wide range of products for all your health and fitness supplement needs.
