Be Strong, Be Confident, Be More You.
I am so happy to have partnered up with Superdrug on my “be more you” journey! My Polycystic weight loss journey is more than just loosing weight! It’s mainly about regaining what PCOS has taken away from me for the past few years. Most people have no idea what Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is – so I suggest you research it if you are experiencing any unusual things with your body! But simple things like working out (because it causes pain), finding an outfit to wear (because suddenly nothing fits 😒) and being able to climb stairs, walk and sit have been hard at times and has really effected me.
Superdrug’s new Some Body is a new health and wellness range to encourage and inspire you to reach your goals. Partnered up with a new healthy diet & exercise, they have created innovative products from nutritious protein powders to ready to go drinks to promote a healthy lifestyle that benefits the mind, body and soul. I really LOVE how easy my new “Some body” meals/snacks can fit into my everyday and can i mention that they even have pancakes in this range… so get ready for my glow up!

So let’s talk about the products…
When it comes to shakes you can never go wrong with vanilla – plus i’m quite a simple gal! I chose the Pure Whey Protein Powder in Vanilla (600g) but you also have a choice of strawberry, banana etc. if you love flavoured shakes! This shake is made for an energy boost, especially when working out! Also adding extra protein to your diet can help to achieve lean, healthy muscles and curb those sugar cravings (which is my life – lol).
Add 50ml (two heaped scoops) of the powder to 300ml water, milk, coconut or almond and shake well.

I mixed the protein powder with Gluten free Oat milk which is super creamy and tastes amaaaazing) in my super cute – and motivational – shaker flask which helps to effortlessly mix the powder and my oat mil together without any lumps or residue.
Let me just say, this shake tastes amazing! It is full in flavour and after I finish one, I want another lol! It basically tastes of vanilla ice cream – you know the amazing part in the inside of a magnum?.. yea that! The consistency isn’t thick but there is some body to it which definitely makes me feel fuller. I am currently using the shake as a meal replacement and I found it definitely has helped stretch me through to a late lunch if im stuck in work mode!

I love a little “pick me up”, so I choosing a product that would satisfy my sweet tooth? and be a healthy snack this product ticked all the boxes! This product is a fitness-inspired Natural snack by Superdrug which is specifically been designed to curb hunger and sustain energy while you’re on the go.
I was pleasantly surprised when I found out it contains 100% natural ingredients and this healthy protein bar combines the power of several rich protein sources into one smooth, low-calorie, low sugar great-tasting snack. You can also pick up the yummy healthy snack in Cocoa and Orange!
What did I think…
The product is a compact bar and quite small. I wasn’t convinced with its size but the product is very rich with a texture and it definitely did the job. If you are not into nuts/texture in your bars then this definitely isn’t for you! However, I chose it because it is something I would pick up in the off licence and I love the combination of sweet and salty – the flavour is great! There is a slight hint of cocoa, nothing to overwhelming for someone who doesn’t like dark chocolate. But there is a perfect balance between the caramel and chocolate making it a great fix!
Ingredients: chopped dates, cashews, currants, cocoa powder (6.8%), cacao nibs, whey protein concentrate (4.7%), cacao butter, rice flour, soya lecithin, natural salted fudge flavour (0.8%).
