Shake it Up!

I need to drop some poundage.  A year of inactivity has taken a toll on the scale. 

I’ve gotten into the habit of eating a full dinner late, 8:00 or 9:00 (sometimes later) at night. I’ve decided a couple things:

  1. I am often not hungry for a full dinner but eat anyhow. 
  2. I think the full dinner thing is a habit, not a need. 
  3. I gotta break the habit. 

I did a bit of shopping at ye ole healthy food store. I looked at meal replacement shakes. Now, let’s be honest, many of them are full of crap that we do not need in our bodies! Many taste like crap too. What to do?

Experiment and try some on for size. My criteria?

  1. Small ingredients list
  2. No fake sugar
  3. No casein
  4. No whey
  5. No dairy of any kind
  6. Gluten free
  7. Non-GMO

First up, I tried something I’d not seen before. It is called Phood and is a plant-based option. According to their website, it is a shake/supplements in one kind of thing. They boast:

  • 100% Plant-Based from whole food sources
  • No Major Allergens; Dairy, Soy, Gluten, etc
  • No Animal
  • No Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)

Phood met my criteria! 


Upon opening the envelope, I was struck by the nasty smell. Uh-oh. I couldn’t tell exactly what the nasty was. I decided to keep going. After all, the front AND back of the envelope fit all my criteria. (And we all know never to trust the front of a package!)


I added it to my new shaker cup of water. I shook…

  1. It shook well!
  2. It had a nice shake like quality and constancy. 
  3. It was not gritty. 

I braced myself…I tasted it..and was pleasantly surprised. I LIKED IT! 

I drank it at 6:30. I was comfortably full the rest of the evening. At about 10:30 I wished I had a cookie, but I think that’s because I was looking at pictures of cookies. 

Phood is on my list of shakes to try again!  I wonder how the chocolate tastes? They have a chocolate caramel flavor…
