Starting on a clean diet with USANA’s personalized smartshake!

Attended the launch of USANA’s clean and personalized smartshake event the previous saturday, made new friends and had so much fun making protein shakes!

USANA Health Sciences (NYSE: USNA) is a U.S.-based nutritional company that manufactures high-quality supplements, personal care and healthy products in its FDA-registered facility in Salt Lake City. They are committed to develop products that help people achieve better health through high quality, cellular nutrition!

Singapore branch started its operations in 2003 and provides a True Health experience complete with Customer Service, Collection Centre and Training Room facilities at its office in Ngee Ann City.

Before the event I was told to complete a health assessment so that they could give me a set of supplements that are solely customized based on my needs. 🙂 I haven’t try them though as I was travelling the past 2 weeks!

The event started off with meeting Kenny Tan (Regional Senior Nutritionist) and Lily Farquhar (Certified holistic health coach) from USANA followed by a competition where we will have to make our own smartshakes and win takashimaya vouchers!

This is the outcome! Looked like strawberry smoothie right??

Then I think Denise came up with an idea to make the smoothie in different colour tones, so we added in more raspberries for the remaining shake.

The colour became darker!

after this is done, we went on to decorate the ‘smoothie’ because we want to fulfill the instagramability criteria. 😀

The final product after decorating!

So we made 2 shakes that fulfill both criteria, we were all confident that we will win until we lost it to another team. LOL so sad. But I was still very happy because there’s teamwork involved and the shakes looked really damn beautiful!

Sadly we didn’t add in enough water. The required amount of water should be 300ml but we added lesser than that which resulted in a thicker consistency. Nevertheless still very yummy and I think it will work super well for a meal replacement.

Group photo for the day! 😀

USANA smart shake contains coconut oil (good fats!), lower carbohydrates, high protein , soluble and insoluble fibre which can help in these areas:

  1. Rebalance your diet
  2. Manage the weight
  3. Cleanse the system
  4. Maintain the muscle

Fibergy Plus Booster can also be added in to the shake to support the body’s natural detoxification process by removing waste and toxins. There are also flavors optimizers for you to add in if you are up for some flavor boost at only 40 calories per satchet~ (heard that the cappucino flavour is good!)

The best part of the shake is that they will customize your own supplements pack after receiving your health assessment online! Don’t need to worry about being lactose intolerance they will take that into account too, which is why they have both whey and soy protein! ;’)

I think this is a really good breakfast alternative. Healthy, good fats, high fibre, keep me full, tasty and low in calories! I have nothing to complain about! Will start on my own pack really soon and monitor my weight at the same time! =D

Here is the price list for your info~ you can check out too 🙂
