*ProNourish™ Nutritional Drinks are formulated to avoid certain ingredients that may trigger digestive discomfort.
I’m going to be brutally honest with you, my readers, as always. I have pretty significant digestive sensitivities. Snack selections? Let’s be real. With all the meetings, school drop off and pick up, errands, and medical appointments for both myself and my son, I’m bored. I’m bored of fruit and vegetables, and grabbing easy-to-snack-on options while running out the door seems to always end up being foods that I am going to regret an hour later.
What happens then? I ignore the hunger pains, which is actually worse for my health. I grab a bottle of water to fill that void and just push through. Until now. With 15 grams of high-quality protein, no gluten or high fructose corn syrup, and certified to be low in FODMAPs, ProNourish™ Nutritional Drinks caught my attention! I should not forget that I am also lactose intolerant, and this yummy snack option is suitable to fit my needs.
Why are these features important to me? Well, to be as blunt here as possible, nothing is more miserable than running errands and having to bolt across a store to make it to the bathroom in time to avoid a possible accident. No one likes having to use public restrooms, but being in pain, and having my digestive sensitivities barricade me in a public bathroom stall like a hostage negotiator is miserable. You always pray you are alone and can get out before someone knows you are the guilty party. What makes it worse is if this event happens while you are out enjoying a fun afternoon with your family. Your child has to wait. Your significant other has to wait. Your life is at a standstill while you are suffering. Avoiding the ingredients that may trigger my digestive discomfort helps me to avoid this.
I love how ProNourish™ Drinks are shelf stable so I can take some with me to theme parks and the zoo. A glass of ice makes it perfect! I wish more than ever that I had them during our recent road trip. I felt like I starved trying to make healthy selections and I still had my husband pull off to gas stations before our scheduled breaks. Digestive sensitivities don’t care about your plans or schedule.
I know I am not alone because over 80 million U.S. adults over the age of 18 suffer from digestive sensitivities. The fact that I can now drink a snack on the go while following my dietary restrictions is a relief. ProNourish™ Drinks were designed with advice from health care professionals specifically for those with digestive sensitivities. These are not meal-replacement drinks; they are honest-to-goodness tasty snacks or mini-meals that will help you get through your day.
I really enjoy the French Vanilla flavor for my car ride to drop my son off at school and then hit the gym. I love to toss the Strawberry Banana in a glass with some ice cubes and feel like I am treating myself to a dessert. Here is the big question you may be thinking: How does it taste? Pretty fantastic in my opinion, and I am very picky when it comes to any product with the word “nutritional” in it! It truly does taste like I am splurging and enjoying something sweet. That in itself also helps my progress by curbing that sweet tooth!
Step away from the vending machine, and do not stop at a drive-thru to beat the hunger. ProNourish™ Drinks are available in French Vanilla and Strawberry Banana flavors, which are free from high fructose corn syrup, sugar alcohols, and artificial colors. You can have the product delivered straight to your door by ordering online at www.pronourish.com and even get a $2 coupon to purchase in store!
