2. HUEL vegan meals | £2.36 per meal
Huel’s Hot and Savoury meals are fantastic when you’re in a rush but want something healthy. With 24g of plant-based protein and 26 vits and mins per meal, plus loads of fibre, they contain rice, quinoa, vegetables, herbs and spices, and come in thai green curry and tomato & herb flavours. That’s Boxing Day lunch sorted.
4. SUPERNOVA Vegan Life Powder Naked 00 | £35
This is a natural post-workout drink that lessens fatigue and inflammation, and boosts immunity by combining adaptogens such as ashwagandha, maca, reishi, chaga, camu camu (try saying those after you’ve had a few sherries) with plant protein. It has no added flavours, sweeteners, gumsor additives, either.
5. NGX nutrition shakes | From £99.99 for a DNA test
It sounds like science fiction, but this is an investment in your health. Ultimately, it’s a shake, but one that’s bespoke to you. Based on a DNA test to see how your body responds to nutrients, NGX mix a powder that contains all the things your body needs to fuel and recover at its best.
6. GREAT LAKES Collagen | £29.95
A tasteless, odourless and colourless supplement made from protein and amino acids, which dissolves easily in drinks. Sure, protein helps build muscle mass, but it does much more besides: think supple joints and stronger connective tissues, meaning injuries are prevented and recovery times shortened. [Whispers] Expect good skin and soft hair too.
