This week on Let’s Get Real it’s time to take the replacement out of meal replacements. From purees to shakes to powders we are assaulted every day by the promise of easy and convenient ‘food’ from Special K bars to Pediasure for kids. Tune in to find out what you’re really ingesting with those body building mixes (answer: it’s a lot of lead) and single serving Trader Joe’s meals and learn the simple things you can do to pull yourself out of this rabbit-whole of whole-meal replacement. This episode is sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.

“The idea that people use meal replacement powders and shakes for nutrition . . . it’s ridiculous! Food is nutrition.”
