Do you struggle to keep New Year’s resolutions? If you’re like me–or virtually any other human–you probably do.
For almost 10 years, I’ve committed myself to living a healthier lifestyle that includes eating nutritious foods and getting regular exercise. But, like you, my schedule gets crazy-busy sometimes. It can be tough to find time to prepare a healthy breakfast that does right by the body.
So when Burt’s Bees, a company with a reputation built on fantastic natural health and beauty products, invited me to try its new line of Burt’s Bees™ Plant-Based Protein Shakes, I was excited to see if these powdered drink mixes would shake up my resolution to eat a healthy breakfast. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Burt’s Bees on this post.
As I learned more about this new shake mix from Burt’s Bees, two factors grabbed my attention.
1. Burt’s Bees incorporates plant-based proteins into their shakes.
The company’s shake mixes offer 15 grams of plant-based protein per serving from five sources: peas, brown rice, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, and oats.
2. Burt’s Bees™ Plant-Based Protein Shakes use non-artificial sweeteners.
Another reason I love this shake mix is that it incorporates only non-artificial sweeteners, like honey, monk fruit extract, and Stevia leaf extract. If you’ve been reading SkinnyMs. articles or preparing our recipes, you know we strongly believe that reducing consumption of added refined sugar is a key component to successful weight loss. Burt’s Bees™ Plant-Based Protein Shakes are a natural fit for women who want to see the benefits of decreasing refined sugar intake.
How did I use Burt’s Bees new shake mix?
With two flavor options–chocolate and vanilla–it was a tough decision. But I finally decided my taste buds were calling out for Burt’s Bees™ Protein +Healthy Radiance in Vanilla, which I used to create the yummy Piña Colada Protein Shake.
The flavors in this recipe are so vibrant that I can practically feel the warm ocean breeze! Plus, it incorporates simple ingredients and takes just minutes to prep in the blender. The result is a no-hassle protein shake that’s a tasty way to keep your New Year’s resolution to live a healthier lifestyle.
