As someone who is rapidly approaching my 40th birthday, I have recently started to take an active interest in my health and well-being.
I run a business and lead a very busy lifestyle, and over the years, this has taken its toll on me, both physically and mentally. I’ve worked hard at improving my work-life balance, aiming to reduce my stress levels.
I have always loved food, but I found that I was spending too much of my free time preparing meals or, worse, eating foods that weren’t healthy. A while back, I discovered meal shakes, and I fell in love with the idea behind them.
Improving your nutrition while saving yourself time and effort seemed like a win-win situation. It was the perfect solution for my busy lifestyle.
I tried various brands and flavours. Unfortunately, none of them felt right for me. I don’t enjoy the strange milkshake sweetener taste that so many shakes have, and I often found that the shakes affected my gut health.
I wanted to create a complete meal shake that contains natural ingredients. I wanted it to taste like real food and be easy to digest. I didn’t want it to contain sucralose, stevia, or other artificial sweeteners. I wanted a shake that was naturally sweetened.
To do this, my team and I spent a year developing a recipe that uses real food ingredients, is flavoured by nature, and only contains a small amount of natural coconut sugar.
The finished product became Rootana, a real food meal shake. A truly healthy, complete meal that we at Rootana are really proud of.
