Feeding my Temple is all about fitting in a healthy lifestyle, while being a full time working mom and wife! I I was interested when I was contacted by Slim Fast to review their launch of revamped shakes, snacks, and the 3-2-1 Plan. I'll be honest, the only time I have ever tried Slim Fast was when I was about 13 and I "borrowed" a shake out of my grandpa's refrigerator (so true, sorry Grandad), just to see how it tasted. Despite feeling sneaky, I didn't really care for the shake. It was one of those that was in the can...and well, it kinda tasted like the can....
The new 3-2-1 Plan consists of :
3 snacks a day (Slim·Fast 100-calorie snack bars, nuts, fruits and/or veggies.)
2 Shakes or Meal Bars
And 1 500 calorie dinner.
New flavors and shake/bar options can be found with the 3-2-1 Plan including:
• Cappuccino Delight
• French Vanilla
• Creamy Milk Chocolate
• Rich Chocolate Royale
• Strawberries N' Cream
• Lower Carb Creamy Chocolate
• Lower Carb Vanilla Cream
• Chocolate Royale
• French Vanilla
• Milk Chocolate
• Strawberry Supreme
• High-Protein Creamy Chocolate
• High-Protein Creamy Vanilla
• Chocolate Cookie Dough
• Chocolate Fudge Brownie
• Chocolate Peanut Caramel
• Chewy Chocolate Crisp
• Fruit & Yogurt Trail Mix
• Sweet & Salty Chocolate Almond
• Peanut Butter Crunch Time
• Chocolate Mint
• Chocolate Nougat Gone Nuts
• Chocolatey Vanilla Blitz
• Double-Dutch Chocolate
I love a good shake and found a few of the new flavors at my local Wal-Mart, including Creamy Milk Chocolate, French Vanilla, and Rich Chocolate Royale. Say no more! I grabbed a canister of shake powder in Rich Chocolate Royale!
At 200 calories a shake (with skim milk), I was pleasantly surprised! There was no chemical or weird artificial sweetener smell to the powder.
The directions indicated I needed to mix one scoop of powder with very cold milk. I had skim milk on hand and added it to my cup with the powder. It mixed really well with the milk and I was ready to give it a taste! My thoughts?
Very surprised! It was actually really good. I have an "issue" with the texture of most meal replacement shakes but this one had no gritty or slimy feel to it. No weird after taste and was quite filling.
With the wide variety of shake and bar options that are now available with the 3-2-1 Plan, they make a great option for anyone on the go, especially during the holidays. Getting stuck at the mall, fighting crowds and traffic, or making long road trips make staying on track really difficult sometimes. Throwing a meal bar or re-closable shake in your purse ensures you have a healthy meal on the go! In addition to finding them at Wal-Mart, the new products are also available at Target, Kroger, Safeway, and even Amazon.com! I love that more and more products are available through Amazon.com.
