In the mornings, we often find ourselves hitting the snooze button an extra time or two to soak up a few additional minutes of precious sleep. While this may be instantly gratifying, it leaves little time to make a healthy breakfast. For a while I've been searching for the perfect meal in a bottle to overcome this problem. Something I can grab in the morning on my way out the door and consume on my daily ocmmute. I expect the bottle to contain the nutrition and fuel that I need to get through the day. We've previously reviewed Soylent which is a big player in this space. Some of us consumed Soylent for a number of months, drinking it multiple times a week as our breakfast. While it was certainly convenient, most of us have slowed down our soylent consumption or even stopped entirely.
Ample is joining the meal replacement fray with a product slightly more expensive than most others on the market. Ample seems to be targeting the health crowd, while Soylent seems to be popular with the hacker crowd (as they don't often want to stop coding to eat a meal). Ample comes in three different formulas which should fit most diets. Each serving comes in a bottle in powder form, which requires you to add water or milk.
The Original formula has no gluten, soy, GMOs, or artificial sweeteners. The formula is designed to be creamy and frothy with hints of vanilla and cinnamon.
Ample also offers a Vegan friendly option with a different flavor profile. This formula is filled with healthy fats, protein, fiber, probiotics, fruit, vegetables, and other plant-based nutrients. The taste has notes of berry, nuts, and toasted cereal.
Ketogenic (AMPLE K)
The Ketogenic formula is the most popular option that Ample offers (based on the number of reviews). The flavor profile is milky and nutty, with notes of cinnamon and vanilla.
Should I try it?
There's really no reason not to try it! Ample has a taste and quality guarantee, which means if you don't like it Ample will refund your purchase up to 60 bottles. The guarantee period is limited to 30 days, which should be plenty of time to give each flavor a try. For those that dig it, you can also subscribe for a 10% discount.
