I’m not one for strict “diets”. However, that doesn’t mean that I’m averse to a bit of a health boost from time to time. Like many people, this desire often kicks in around the New Year.
Not only did I sign up to Veganuary this year but I also wanted to make a conscious effort to make healthier choices as much as possible.
So when I was selected to be part of the Nutribuddy Breakfast campaign, I was pretty darn excited!

The Nutribuddy Breakfast* shakes come in
three FOUR flavours – Naked, Chocolate Brownie, Vanilla and Strawberry (added to the range on 16th Jan!). I’m not a fan of chocolate-flavoured drinks but I’m a sucker for sweet vanilla so that’s what I chose.
The shake powder is a blend of oats, seeds and coconut and comes in a super-cute, recyclable glass jar. You can order your first kit for 14-days (£14.99), 28-days (£24.86) or 56 days (£39.92).
With your first jar, you can get a shaker bottle for £7.99. The bottle is perfect for breakfast on the run – you literally just scoop in the powder, add milk of your choice (almond for me) and shake! Done. As someone who is always in a rush, this is perfect.
Not only are the shakes a quick and easy breakfast option, they’re healthy, high in protein, low in fat, vegan-friendly, organic, and gluten-free. All the things!
But how does it taste, you ask?
Well, it’s a little bit like drinking liquid cereal… or a really thin smoothie. I feel like that description made it sound horrible but it’s not, I swear! The flavour is actually really nice and has just the right hint of sweetness.
I do like the shake plain but I also tried blending it with frozen banana and that took it to the next level and made it feel a bit more filling. I’m looking forward to experimenting more with fruit and maybe making a smoothie bowl at the weekend. On work days, though, I expect to just go with the powder and milk and run!
The Nutribuddy Breakfast shakes are not only a quick and easy breakfast substitute, they are also really low in calories (Vanilla is under 120 calories per serve) so great for anyone looking to lose a few of those holiday kilos.
I don’t expect any miracle weight loss in just two weeks using the shakes but they are a great help in kickstarting my healthier diet and I’ll do a follow-up post once I’ve used up my stash. For now, I’m just enjoying a new and different breakfast.
Do you have any health goals for 2018?
