Patrick Holford – Low GL Breakfast Shake

I tend to workout a lot in the morning so I like to eat something light yet filling.

Normally that is a glass of milk and out the door I go.

So I snapped up the chance to test out a breakfast shake called Patrick Holford Get Up and Go! from Holland & Barrett stores.

The product is made of whole foods ground into a powder which you can mix with any type of soya milk.

I preferred to mix it in with coconut milk and found it refreshing and filling and just what I needed to kick start my day.

Get Up and Go! provides 100% RDA or more of a wide range of vitamins and minerals, one third of your daily protein requirements and relevant levels of essential fats.

The carbohydrate comes principally from apple powder, the protein from quinoa, soya and rice flour, the essential fats from ground sesame, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, the fibre from oat bran, rice bran and psyllium husks and additional flavour from almond meal, cinnamon and natural vanilla.

I have to say, I really enjoyed this product and not only in the morning.

It was great to have as a post workout drink as well as knocking it back when I fancied something sweet but healthy.
