Promoting good nutrition is not an easy task, there are a million reasons to object, so I would ask, how many vitamins and minerals to you actually get from the diet your life style allows? There is an easy way, this is what I have used for sixteen years, why not give it a try?

The importance of vitamins and minerals – Your guide for an ideal diet

In an ideal world, we would get all our vitamins and minerals from the food we consume on a daily basis.

However, many of us lead very busy and pressured lives. Some of us may not have sufficient time to put together a detailed and well
thought out dietary plan that addresses all our needs.

That is why vitamin and mineral supplements have an important role to play as they are designed to complement and support our daily diet, to help ensure that our intake levels of essential micronutrients are maintained at an optimum level.

A healthy, balanced diet is important in order to obtain all of the nutrients which are key to our health. However, few of us find it easy to live up to this ideal.

The use of vitamin and mineral supplements can reduce dietary gaps and improve nutritional status without exceeding safe levels of intake. There are many potential reasons to complement your diet with a vitamin & mineral supplement, depending on factors such as age, gender, dietary habits, and lifestyle.

Herbalife Nutrition can help complement your diet with vitamin & mineral supplements which meets your individual needs. Order yours today at with a thirty day money back guarantee the proof is in the eating!


Introducing you to the vegetarian, gluten and dairy free, water-mixable shake, Pro 20, This product eliminates just about every objection to trying these delicious products.Chocolate Orange for breakfast!!!

Kickstart your day: Chocolate Orange Protein Smoothie

Bloggers Dannii and Dave were looking for a delicious way to give their bodies the nutrition needed, as they rarely consume any meat.

The adorable couple behind the popular Hungry Healthy Happy blog tried Herbalife Nutrition’s vegetarian, gluten and dairy free, water-mixable shake, Pro 20, and loved the results.

What better way to refuel after a workout or to start your morning than with a Chocolate Orange Protein Smoothie? The delicious combination of cocoa and fresh orange juice in a protein packed smoothie, thanks to Herbalife Nutrition’s PRO 20 Select protein shake.

Chocolate and orange has to be one of the best flavour combinations out there, and definitely the best sweet combination. I can almost imagine I am eating a chocolate orange, but really I am having a fruit packed smoothie with an added protein boost. You don’t get that in a chocolate orange!

I have just started running again and I want to make sure that I am refuelling properly. I eat meat probably once a month, so I need to get my protein other ways. There are a tonne of ways you can get enough protein if you don’t eat meat and whilst my diet is full of those kinds of meals, with an active toddler I don’t always have time for a sit-down meal, so I grab a protein smoothie. This Chocolate Orange Protein Smoothie is my favourite.

We have struggled to find a protein powder in the past that doesn’t taste weird, and that Dave can have. A lot of protein powders are made with pea protein and because Dave is allergic to peas, that has limited our choice. When we were invited to try Herbalife Nutrition’s Pro 20 Select protein shake, we were excited to see that it didn’t have any pea protein in it and were looking forward to adding it to our diets as a post workout shake.

PRO 20 Select is a water mixable, high protein shake that is low in sugar and provides your body with key nutrients it needs. Each serving contains 20g of protein, 6g of fibre, and delivers a third of your daily recommended intake of 24 vitamins and minerals. You can just mix it with water for a simple protein shake, or you can add it to any homemade smoothie to give it a protein boost.

Herbalife Nutrition PRO 20 Select is vegetarian, gluten and dairy free and no artificial sweeteners or flavours and it is an ideal post-workout snack, as it helps to replenish your nutrient levels. We always encourage eating a balanced diet to make sure you are getting plenty of vitamins and minerals, but since having a child I have realised how difficult that can be for many when you are short on time. Adding this to my diet has meant that I know I am getting plenty of vitamins and minerals, even when I have been eating too much convenience food.

Protein shakes aren’t just for gym goers looking to bulk up. PRO 20 Select is great for anyone that is looking to maintain a nutritious and balanced diet or needs a healthy post workout snack. I have been having one of these for my breakfast a couple of times a week (in different variations of smoothies) and it has kept me going until my next meal.


That’s fine! Once you have the base of the chocolate protein smoothie, you can swap out the orange for some other fruits. I have tried chocolate and cherry, chocolate and cranberry and chocolate and mint. You have so many options here, but they are all full of chocolatey goodness!


1 Large banana
2 scoops Herbalife Nutrition Pro 20 Select
4 Large Strawberries
Juice of 1 Orange
3 tbsp Cocoa powder
500ml Almond milk
1 tbsp Honey


One: Break up the banana and add to a blender
Two: Slice the strawberries and add to the blender
Three: Add the Herbalife Nutrition Pro 20 Select
Four: Add the Cocoa powder
Five: Add the honey
Six: Add the almond milk and orange juice.
Seven: (not shown) Blend until smooth.


This doesn’t have a strong banana taste, but if you really don’t like banana you can leave it out. It just won’t be as sweet, but it will still be nice and thick because of the protein powder.
You can swap honey for maple syrup.
You can use cow’s milk instead of nut milk, but I think the flavour of almond milk works really well.

Recipes with Rachel Allen- Chicken Casserole

For the breakfast and lunch it’s a tasty F1 shake, mid morning and afternoon a healthy snack and for an evening meal try this!

To order your F1 shakes and healthy snacks just go to the products will be with you in three days.


POP on those aprons and get ready to cook! BBC Chef  Rachel Allen has joined forces with Herbalife Nutrition to bring you 14 delicious recipes you can work into your healthy lifestyle.

Balanced, healthy and packed with protein and vitamins, these recipes are a great support for your health & weight goals – whether you’re losing weight, building muscle or focused on fat loss.

We’re kicking off with a hearty chicken casserole loaded with veggies that is great for the whole family. Then get to work on your own homemade nut butter – perfect add-on for shakes, oats, toast (and everything in between). AND a total protein power-house too.

Chicken casserole

Serves 4-6

A hearty, warm and comforting casserole that’s packed with protein and veggies – perfect for cold winter evenings or as a restorative dish after you’ve worked out.


  • Whole chicken, joined into pieces, or 4 whole legs, divided into 4 drumsticks and 4 thighs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 onions, peeled and cut into halves through the root
  • 6 potatoes, peeled and cut in half if very large
  • A couple of sprigs of thyme or rosemary
  • Approximately 400ml chicken stock


Place a large frying pan on a high heat for about 5 minutes until nice and hot. Pour a drizzle of olive oil (you can use coconut oil if you prefer) into the pan, place the chicken pieces in (skin side down) and cook for a few minutes until golden underneath.  Season with salt and pepper then turn over and cook on the other side. Once the chicken pieces are golden, transfer them into a casserole pot or a saucepan (you may need to cook them in a couple of batches if you’re pan isn’t large enough to take them all at once).

Toss in the carrots and the onions, seasoning as you go, and cook over the high heat for a couple of minutes until ever so slightly golden around the edges. Transfer these into the pot so they sit on top of the chicken pieces.

With the heat still under the pan, pour in the chicken stock and bring it to the boil, whisking the bottom of the pan to dissolve any juices stuck to the pan. While the stock is coming up to the boil place the peeled potatoes and the herbs over the vegetables. Now pour the boiling stock over the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and cover with a lid.

Allow to cook gently on the hob for about 40 minutes, until the vegetables and chicken pieces are cooked, or place in an oven preheated to 160’C, until cooked.

Serve the chicken and vegetables in shallow bowls with the steaming broth around it.

Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1

I received a Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1 hamper from my friends at Immediate PR to review including the Green Goddess and Fruit Burst shakes. The descriptive names give you a clue as to what these shakes are made of. For those of you who love eating vegetables and greens, The Green Goddess is a treat for your senses. While Fruit Burst needs no introduction. I really liked both and I highly recommend them especially if you don’t have access to good quality, healthy food for breakfast or lunch. Sometimes we rushing so much in the morning or at lunch we grab something quick but not necessarily good for us.

Green Goddess

The Green Goddess is a tasty meal replacement shake. It is fresh, light and boasts gut cleansing qualities while it is a great way to incorporate greens into your diet. I am guilty of not eating enough greens like celery, cucumber and spinach. When I was growing up I watched Popeye eat spinach and become instantly stronger! The Green Goddess is packed with 100g of spinach but I can’t promise you will fighting fit like Popeye, unfortunately! It is a good place to start though. When made according to the instructions there is only 220 kcal per serving. I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect this to taste as nice as it did. It is as tasty and refreshing as it looks and I think you will love it!


  • 26g of Formula 1 Vanilla flavour
  • 100g of raw celery, roughly chopped
  • 100g of raw cucumber, roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice
  • 250ml of milk
  • 150g of ice

Blend all the ingredients together until completely smooth.

Fruit Burst

The Fruit Burst is a shake packed with punchy flavour! If you are a fan of smoothies then you will like Fruit Burst. I like eating fruit, particularly berries so this shake was a treat for my taste buds. Fruit Burst is made with ingredients such as 150g natural yoghurt, 15g of oats and 75g of seasonal berries which will definitely put a pep in your step. It is a delicious meal to have in the morning or for lunch. There is only 220 kcal per serving so it is a healthy alternative to wraps and sandwiches. I enjoyed having Fruit Burst for breakfast. It is certainly a great way to start the day.


  • 26g of Formula 1 Raspberry and Blueberry flavour
  • 150g of natural yoghurt
  • 100g of mango
  • 75g for seasonal berries
  • 15g of porridge oats
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon or lime juice
  • 150g of ice

Blend all the ingredients together until completely smooth.

Frank’s Thoughts 

I have a keen interest in well being, fitness and healthy eating even though I don’t manage to achieve all these as consistently as  I would like. Basically, what I am saying is life can get in the way. That is not an excuse but we can feel tired in the evenings and eat something rubbish for us or skip breakfast to make the bus or train in the mornings. I think this is where Herbalife Formula 1 would be beneficial for people. These meal replacement shakes are so tasty and easy to prepare, it is a win-win situation! I’m a regular guy who likes to dress well, feel good, eat out in nice restaurants, have some beer or wine and look my best. Adding Herbalife Formula 1 is a great way to give yourself nutrients from veg or fruit you might be lacking in your diet. It isn’t a magic trick though so don’t expect miracles!

I am really impressed by the Herbalife Formula 1 meal replacement shakes. Usually, I am pretty sceptical about “wonder” products claiming they will do this and that. I think its different with Herbalife Formula 1 especially when preparing the shakes and seeing all the veg and fruits going into them. It is clear there are health benefits to using them. I recommend trying out Herbalife Formula 1 shakes. Check out the Herbalife Nutrition: for more information.

That is all for now, I hope you enjoyed this post and it has provided you with some answers on Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1 meal replacement shakes. Don’t forget to check me out on  for more lifestyle posts.

This has been Fashionable Frank and you have been Fantastic!

Until Next Time,

Last week you saw an overview of this simply yummy new flavour, now we have a personal write up on exactly that: “Super quick and easy to make”: In-depth review of the new Formula 1 Banana Cream

“Super quick and easy to make”: In-depth review of the new Formula 1 Banana Cream

FORMULA 1 is all about supporting a healthy lifestyle on the go – as demonstrated here by blogger (and busy mama!) Gemma Louise. Read on to see what she thought of the new generation Formula 1 Banana Cream.

All the information on the products and where you can order yours today visit:   you could be starting on the path to super nutrition within three days!

A quick & easy meal to see you out the door…

I don’t know about you, but as a mum of a two year old, life can be very hectic – particularly when I’m trying to get ready on a morning. As a work from home mum, my mornings usually consist of running around the house after my whirlwind of a toddler, trying to feed him six different breakfasts until he finally decides he likes one, and trying to get us both ready without having a mental breakdown. And that’s before I’ve even started working. I can’t actually remember the last time I sat down and ate breakfast, it was probably at least two years ago.

I never go without my coffee ~ a complete essential in my everyday ~ but I’ve started looking for things I can add into my morning routine to give me a bit of an extra boost and stop me from feeling starved by lunch time. The Herbalife Nutrition shakes are perfect for this, not only are there endless ways that you can make them up to keep things from getting a bit boring – but they are full of protein and vitamins and they’re so nutritious! Today I’m chatting about their new flavour, Banana Cream, and the benefits of adding it into your weekly routine, as well as the different ways in which I like to make mine.

Formula 1, Banana Cream…

To start off with, and lets face it one of the most important factors, is that this shake is super quick and easy to make. You simply whizz up two tablespoons of Formula 1 powder with 250ml of milk and you’re good to go. If you want to add extras to make it a bit more filling or tastier, that’s your choice – but if you’re really in a rush then it tastes good all on its own. Formula 1 offers convenience, taste and nutrition all in one shake.

You can choose to have one for breakfast, lunch or even dinner if you wish, it’s nutritious enough to replace an entire meal as part of a healthy and balanced diet. For anyone that likes to keep active, like gym goers, you probably already know a lot about protein shakes, F1 shakes already contain 18g of protein and can be customised with Herbalife Nutrition’s Personalised Protein Powder to add even more protein to your shake.

You can choose to use this as part of a diet if you’re trying to control your weight or you can simply add it to your daily routine as one of your daily meals especially when you don’t have time to eat in the morning. It contains 25 vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D which contributes to the normal function of the immune system to – so it’s perfect to drink during winter when the cold season begins.

It also contains Vitamin C; contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue one of the most essential factors for me when I’m having it for breakfast. You can find out more about the ingredients in depth on the Herbalife website.

How I like it…

As for this new flavour, Banana Cream – I personally hate bananas but the best part about this shake is that the banana flavour isn’t overpowering at all, they’ve got the flavour balanced just right and I really enjoy drinking this shake first thing on a morning or just as I’m running out the door! I’m not one for diets really, I try to eat as healthy as I can but any dieting or exercise I try to add into my routine never seems to last very long with how much I have on my plate, so I just do as much as I can here and there.

I have plenty of sweet treats during my week as I’m a true believer of a balanced diet, so if I have this shake late morning – close to lunch time then sometimes I love adding a table spoon of honey or syrup, especially lately whilst I’ve had a sore throat as honey is amazing for helping to clear up mucus. If I’m being a bit healthier then I usually just drink it on its own with fresh cold milk or add some fresh fruit, chia seeds or some greek yogurt. There’s so many different things you can add to it to give it a boost and make it even more filling and delicious!

Has it given me a boost?

Absolutely. I can’t tell you how nice it is to be able to quickly whizz one of these shakes up on a morning and not feel like my stomach is eating itself by 11am. One of the other fab things about it is that when I have loads of errands to run in a morning, I can pour it in my travel cup and just bring it with my in the car like I do with my coffee! It gives me a bit of an extra energy boost and stops me feeling starved at the same time. I’m totally sold on protein shakes now and I’m eager to try out some more flavours to add to my morning routine.

I am not going to hide the fact that I love food. Eating out is a huge part of my lifestyle and lately after trying to get into my favourite dress I realised that I hadn’t been looking after myself properly. It’s so important that we take care of our bodies and ensure we consume the right nutrients daily.

For the past few months I have decided to substitute at least one if not two meals a day with @herbalife shakes. I even took my shakes on holiday with me. They are designed to support a healthy active lifestyle.
I’ve just discovered the new banana cream flavour and couldn’t help but share this delicious recipe with you!


1 large handful of kale,
1 small handful of strawberries,
2 scoops of Herbalife Nutrition Formula 1 Banana Cream
250ml semi-skimmed milk (can use your preferred choice of milk)
I always also top it up with a large handful of ice cubes

‘Breakfast’ literally means to ‘break the fast’ that occurs overnight. After approximately 12 hours without fuel, it’s easy to see why breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day. As the first source of energy that your body receives, your breakfast should provide the essential nutrients and fluids needed to kickstart the day. Skipping this most important of meals means your body doesn’t have what it needs to perform basic functions, causing blood sugar levels to drop and you to feel hungry sooner, which means you’re more likely to reach for unhealthy foods later on. But it’s not just about whether you eat breakfast or not. What you eat, and how much, is equally as important. A simple carbohydrate-based breakfast such as toast or pastries does not provide the amount of protein you need in each meal, and may actually make you feel more hungry throughout the day. This is a common culprit for unhealthy food choices. The statistics and research findings below help to put this into perspective:

A protein-rich breakfast has been shown to reduce cravings during the day and help in controlling your appetite 1.

Research shows that skipping breakfast is closely linked with weight gain and overeating later in the day 2.

Eating breakfast was found by scientific researchers to help reduce total daily calorie intake 3.

Results from a clinical study suggested that not eating breakfast is associated with a higher Body Mass Index (BMI)4 and poorer eating behaviours 5.

61% Europeans miss breakfast more than once a week, according to a recent survey. Of those people, 47% blame a lack of time as their excuse 6.

Looking for a breakfast that ticks the boxes for both health and taste? Try this recipe for the perfect breakfast bowl:

2 Scoops Formula 1 Strawberry

250 ml Almond Milk

1/2 Banana

1 Cup Strawberries

1 tbsp Oats

Desiccated Coconut (Optional Topic)

Blend the Formula 1 powder and milk, and then serve in your favourite bowl – topping it with strawberries, banana and oats!

New Year New You! With all the talk regarding the benefits to vegan foods it may come as a surprise that the Herbalife basic range is exactly that, so why not have a look and get your New Year off to a super healthy start.

Veganuary – TEMPTED?

There are many reasons people decide to try Veganism. But whatever your motives are for choosing a plant based diet, there’s no doubt that Veganuary has become a popular New
Year’s resolution.

Because a vegan diet excludes all animal foods and animal products, one of the main challenges is getting enough protein. Animal proteins are “complete” proteins because they contain all nine essential amino acids. But – with the exception of soybeans – most plant foods lack one or more essential amino acids, so they’re considered incomplete.

Other nutrients may also be lacking. For example, dairy products contain calcium and vitamin D so it’s important to plan for these. And since animal proteins are good sources
of iron, zinc and vitamin B12, careful food choices coupled with the right nutritional supplements can help to ensure these nutrient needs are met.

So getting enough nourishment during Veganuary will take some careful planning but consuming a wide variety of foods will help to ensure your body still gets all the essential
building blocks it needs. One of the great benefits of plant protein powders (from soy, pea, rice, quinoa and hemp) is that they offer a lot of protein for relatively few calories. If it’s
difficult to meet your protein needs from meals alone then using a Formula 1 shake is a good way to boost your overall daily protein intake.

These are the Herbalife Nutrition products that could help you during Veganuary and beyond if you wish to continue with a plant based diet.

New generation Formula 1 (in Banana Cream, Café Latte or Spiced Apple flavours) along with Instant Tea, Oat Apple Fibre and Herbal Aloe Concentrate Drink are a wonderful way to start your morning. They will provide you with a nutrient rich, calorie controlled meal which is high in fibre, vitamins and minerals.

Delicious, nutritious and quick to whip up, Formula 1 fuels your body with the right kind of nutrition. The new generation flavours (Banana Cream, Spiced Apple and Café Latte) contain vegan ingredients and are gluten free. A Formula 1 shake works because it’s high in protein and every calorie comes loaded with healthy nutrition and the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs including vitamin D and B12. Each one can be customised according to your own personal taste. Try some of the recipes listed on the Herbalife  Nutrition Share a Shake platform here.

Most protein shake mixes don’t contain a lot of fibre, and most people don’t eat as much of it as they should. Adding Oat Apple Fibre is an easy way to increase your daily fibre intake. Or try adding fruits and vegetables, rolled oats, bran or seeds such as sunflower, flax or chia seeds to your shake, all of which contribute to your fibre intake.

Do you start your day with a high calorie coffee? Instant Herbal Tea with its 85 mg of caffeine can help your concentration and is drunk either hot or cold but at only 6 kcal can be enjoyed guilt free throughout the day.

If you’re feeling less than your best, your fluid intake may be the reason why. Herbal Aloe Concentrate lets you quench your thirst by livening up water. Made from Aloe leaf, this refreshing drink gives water a citrusy twist so you may find it easier to get the fluid intake your body needs to stay healthy and hydrated.

We hope these Herbalife Nutrition products help you with Veganuary and beyond. Good Luck! To order your products and have them at your door in three days visit: read up on what you need place an order today:

New Year’s Skin Resolutions, The biggest organ of your body is your skin! it needs nutrition and care everyday. This is for men and woman, try and see the difference in less than a month.

New Year’s Skin Resolutions

Here are a few practical, yet effective new year’s resolutions that will help you improve not only your physical appearance, but also your confidence and overall well-being: the full range of HERBALIFE SKIN CARE RANGE (nutrition for your skin) can be seen and ordered from

I will be sure to always get a good night’s sleep! 
A good night’s sleep has tremendous benefits for both the mind and the body. If we are sleep deprived then we may be suffering from irritability, slowed speech, a flattened emotional response, and the inability to multitask. There are also studies to suggest that lack of sleep can influence our weight, memory and immune system. But remember, when it comes to our appearance, we do call it “Beauty Sleep” for a reason. When we don’t get enough sleep, we tend to have an increased level of stress hormones in our bodies. When high levels of stress hormones are present, it can lead to inflammation. When we are talking about our skin, this means we could be speeding up the appearance of aging. Lack of sleep can also cause some existing skin conditions, like acne, to worsen. When we’re tired, our skin looks tired. It can look dehydrated, lose its youthful glow and look dull. Remember, sleep relaxes our facial muscles and this is a good thing because it can help smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles we may have. A good night’s sleep allows us to wake up feeling and looking refreshed. So for the sake of overall health and appearance, make a resolution to always get a good night’s sleep.

I will apply moisturiser to my face and body every single day! 
This is such an easy resolution to make and the benefits will be tremendous. When you get out of the shower or bath, take an extra minute to apply moisturiser from head to toe. Do this while your skin is still damp to help seal in your skin’s natural moisture. Moisturisers and body creams are really great for the skin. Your skin will feel more comfortable and it will look better overall. Dry, flaky or ashy-looking skin does not necessarily look youthful or healthy. There are so many factors that can dry out our skin. Long hot showers, using soaps that are too harsh and even weather can negatively impact our skin. By taking just a minute each day to replenish the skin with much needed moisture can vastly improve how it looks and feels. And remember, when going outside, a moisturiser containing SPF 30 with both UVA and UVB protection is essential to guarding your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. So slather that moisturiser on your feet, your legs, arms, elbows and especially your face for a New Year’s resolution you will love!

Break bad habits in the name of beauty! 
So many people look at the beginning of a New Year as the perfect time to kick their bad habits. Smoking, drinking, too much alcohol, lack of exercise and eating too much junk food all seem to be habits that many people want to kick. These habits can negatively impact our appearance, especially our skin. So if you can kick them for the sake of both your overall health and appearance, maybe you will be more likely to keep these resolutions all year long. Why should we kick these specific habits? Smoking depletes the oxygen from our cells, which ultimately can lead to the signs of premature aging. Too much alcohol can dehydrate your skin and deplete it from vital nutrients. A regular exercise regimen not only results in a toned body, but also leads to toned skin. And, our diet is another key factor. As the saying goes, “We are what we eat.” So it’s important to throw away the junk food and eat fruits and vegetables instead. Look at your bad habits, their effects on the entire body and you will be more likely to break them.

I love the New Year. It’s the perfect time to start fresh. Take a quick inventory on your skin care, hair care and cosmetic products and toss what you haven’t used in a while. Double-check the expiration dates and throw away all expired products. Go through your gym bags and purses and toss out those old lipsticks and lotions that have been in there for a year. And take the time to replenish your favourite products so you can start the New Year on a good note. This is the year to work on improving our overall health both inside and out! Happy New Year to everyone and remember, the healthier we are the more beautiful we are!
