Lasting Energy for Busy Moms

I'm a new mom all over again.  My eldest son is about to turn eight.  My youngest, six weeks today.  I'm currently a stay-at-home mom for the first time, and I'm finding out just how busy a lifestyle this SAHM thing is!  I don't always have time to sit down to a healthy lunch or snack, especially when on-the-go for appointments and such.  So, when I received a sample of CalNaturale Svelte's all-natural protein shakes for review, I was more than happy to give them a try.

CalNaturale Svelte comes in four tasty flavors: Chocolate, French Vanilla, Cappuccino and Spiced Chai.  Each provides 16g of protein from fresh organic soy milk, along with complex carbs for sustained energy.  At 260 calories for a 15.9 fl oz serving, it also provides 20% daily value of fiber and is dairy-free and gluten-free.  PLUS, only 9g of sugar!

The packaging was created with busy on-the-go moms in mind too, with a reclosable cap.  And, although I found that the shakes taste better cold, there is no need to refrigerate the product until after it is opened.  Just shake well before opening and make sure to untwist the cap carefully, as i had a little bit of a mishap with one of the shakes, where it would leak out the bottom of the cap opening when I went to take a drink.

My personal favorite is the Cappuccino flavor.  It has a rich coffee flavor, which satisfies my "coffee shop" craving, but without all the excess sugar, fat and calories.  What a great, nutritional alternative!

Have a look here to see where to purchase CalNaturale Svelte in your area, and give it a try.  You can also follow CalNaturale Svelte on Twitter and Facebook.

Disclosure: I received one of each flavor of shake in exchange for this review. All opinions are accurate, honest and 100% mine.
