One of the many challenges of an on-the-go lifestyle is getting regular and adequate nutrition. From young kids pressed for time between school and sport’s practice, to adults rushing between work meetings, many find it difficult to sit down for a proper meal. To compensate, people often reach for highly processed, sugary convenience foods. This tendency to fill up on packaged products and crowd out fresh foods has contributed to the soaring rates of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and other lifestyle diseases over the past few decades.
So how are we supposed to balance our busy lives while maintaining a healthy diet? Sometimes, you simply have to embrace packaged foods due to their convenience. There are hundreds on the market, and many are filled with sugar and artificial ingredients. However, some are all-natural and can be part of a healthy diet. It’s best to look for a product that contains a balance of nutrients and is made of whole ingredients, such as Rumble’s protein “Supershake.”
Rumble Supershakes are different from other protein drinks in that they contain a carefully formulated blend of lactose- and soy-free protein, along with fiber, complex carbs, antioxidants, and omega-3s. These nutrients support the immune system, aid in blood sugar regulation, and can help improve a variety of conditions from arthritis to depression.
“I was facing significant health challenges and was frustrated by the lack of any all-natural or organic, truly balanced ready-to-drink beverages” Rumble’s founder, Paul Underhill, told us. Paul has a condition called cystic fibrosis and his wife is a three-time cancer survivor. Together, they formulated Rumble to address all of their nutritional needs, as well as Paul’s desire to lower inflammation.
These shakes are not only ideal for health-challenged individuals who need to maintain their intake of critical macronutrients. “Rumble fits perfectly for those wanting to start their day with protein, fiber, and healthy fats, but might not have time for a full breakfast,” Underhill said. “Similarly appealing is the potential for a mid-afternoon snack to tide people over when busy lives don’t allow the opportunity to sit down.” In addition to being a potential meal replacement, they’re also great for athletes looking to refuel after activity. Some even use Rumble’s tasty Coffee Supershake as an alternative to caffeine!
Rumble shakes are just one of many packaged foods that can fit into a healthy lifestyle. Just be sure to carefully read labels and choose products that use wholesome ingredients. Avoid harmful additives and preservatives, as well as artificial sweeteners, which, over time, can increase cravings instead of curbing them.
