When you hear “meal replacement”, it doesn’t usually conjure up feelings of enjoyment and satisfaction. Rather, chalky, syrupy, and pasty are usually words that are more likely to come to mind. As are necessity and, well, disgusting.
However, actually sitting down to a meal can be tough – especially one that is nutritionally balanced – so we do what we have to do. And while there are many protein drinks and foods on the market that claim to “have it all”, look closely at their labels and you will assuredly be disappointed.
That’s why Komplete by Kate Farms is so great. Not only is it a complete meal, it taste better than a lot of full on meals do too.
The Product: Kate Farms, the parent company to Komplete Meal Replacement Shakes started out of necessity for a child that was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at birth. As she got older, and was in need of more nutrition, the doctor’s prescribed her meal replacement drinks. However, the sugary and preservative-laden beverages were really not getting Kate the nutrition she needed and thus, her parents and a friend came up with their own concoction; one that was free of many of the common allergens, and instead stacked full of nutrition. Kate began to thrive and thus, Komplete Meal Replacement Shakes were born.
Available in 3 great flavors including Cocoa Fudge, Vanilla Bliss and Jav’a Latte, and containing 21 superfoods, Komplete is not just for those with health issues, but rather anyone looking for an extra boost throughout their day. Vegan, soy-, dairy-, and gluten-free, these beverages are as delicious as they are good for you.
Nutrition-Wise: Komplete Meal Replacement Shakes are not your average nutritional beverage, but truly can be considered a meal replacement. Filled with 21 superfoods, 17-19 grams of protein, 23 vitamins and minerals, and 5 grams of fiber, the nutrition found in each one of these drinks is far superior to the average sit-down meal that one would normally eat. Coming in at around 320 calories, 80 of which are from healthy fats, these shakes will help to satisfy without weighing you down.
Made with Organic rice protein and many other Organic ingredients as well, although not completely certified as such, you can be assured that you are getting the best thanks to their promise of non-GMO ingredients. Komplete shakes are also allergen-friendly with no use of soy, dairy, or gluten. They are also vegan.
And although Komplete shakes do contain around 19 grams of sugar per serving, the “Komplete Glycemic Blend” of organic brown rice syrup solids and organic agave won’t spike your blood sugar like other sources tend to do. Plus, the amount of fiber in these beverages help your body to break these sugars down slowly, giving you a lasting and sustainable energy boost, not the typical “crash and burn” feeling that other high sugar beverages will give you.
Synopsis: When you hear of a new meal replacement, you generally aren’t going to run out and buy the product, thinking of it as a “must-have” commodity. Same thing goes for a vegan beverage, especially if you aren’t vegan. But what if you found a delicious beverage that just happens to be good for you and is vegan as well?
Then chances are you discovered Komplete and their amazingly delicious meal replacement shakes. Coming in three scrumptious flavors and boasting 21 superfoods, with lots of protein and fiber to boot, there is no doubt that you are getting a complete meal with Komplete.
Whether in need of breakfast on-the-go, a midday pick-me-up, or a quick lunch, Komplete is sure to give you the nutrition you need in a delicious and convenient beverage that you’ll enjoy.
