My main goals, health wise? Well of course - weight. And allergy friendly foods. And PCOS relief. Milk and gluten are no no's for me, so no whey or lactose here.
When the noodles are this big, or rather fettuccini pasta, it didn't work so great for me. The texture was off and tasted a bit bland/weird. However, the same product, only as angel hair noodles (very very thin) worked GREAT in a dish. Don't use as main dish, but mix it into a dish.

I have lost weight using the Naturade shakes twice a day - breakfast and evening meal. During the day I eat two normal meals and maybe a fruit bar as a snack. These taste really good, have no lactoce or milk protein, and no wheat. Being allergic to a lot of foods made it difficult for me finding choices of meal replacements, but this caters for everything!!

I tried out this product as the count of carbs is REALLY low - and I'm allergic to milk and gluten. So I'm all in all very happy that this product even exists! I have so far tried it with soy milk - it got so thick I could hardly swallow it. I have tried it with cold water and ice cubes today - this time the consistency was good, however the taste.. sorry but it DOES taste awful. I will try to add some sugar free sweetner or syrup - I'll keep trying to make it taste alright without carbs. I'm still glad I bought it though, because I do get really full once I've forced it all down, and it will help my diet a whole lot with the low carb count. I therefore recommend it! Edit: 1 month later, I'm used to the taste. I bring my shaker to work with the 2 scoops of dry powder in it, and when I'm hungry after work I add water, shake and down my meal goes. It's helped me loose weight already. I just ordered 3 more!
It's "dry" in texture, but it leaves a very pretty shimmer on my lips and adds colour. Less noticable than a lipstick (which is good), it softens and looks pretty. I like it a lot! I have dry lips, so lipsticks often "dry into" my lips. This doesn't!
Very sweet smell, love it. Lanolin free - I have not had any problems at all after I switched all of my lip balms to Badger Company. Highly recommended.
I use this every night. It's looooong lasting as you don't need much every day. Have used 2 jars so far and believe I will use this for many years to come.

At only 10 carbs, naturally, per bar I always have one in my bag in case my blood sugar gets low. Tastes great, but beware very bendable so in my bag the bar itself gets crushed. Love them no matter what!

First of all - great design, but no, it doesn't taste like chocolate caramel. It does taste nice if blended with reeeeally cold water though, or soy milk if you don't mind the extra calories. It gets me really full, especially if I drink it a bit slowly, and I last for quite a while. A bit expensive compared to some protein shakes, but this is pure quality and you need to pay for that. Great product, vegan too. Have already re-purchased.

I am trying to loose weight in a healthy way in a hectic study+work+exercise everyday life. I want it to be vegan, give me protein after my workouts, not be tons of soy - and preferably taste good too! I am trying almost all vegan+gluten free shakes on iHerb right now (you should see my cupboard!) This is hands down the best-tasting shake so far. It's brilliant. Now it's not raw food based, so it wouldn't be totally fair to compare it to raw brands, but for being really healthy and non-raw; absolutely brilliant buy. I have previously purchased Naturade's TotalSoy but I find they have a cardboard-like aftertaste lately, even though I have checked the date on them. And they're soy-based anyway. This is my new go-to, definitely. I will buy lots and lots more. It's good on it's own with icecubes and water so every meal is just 160 calories. It's sweet but not sickening sweet so this is a great dessert or something to calm my sweet tooth in the evenings!

But it's good, leaves my hands nice and moist without still feeling wet when I dried them!
