As simple as the name says, Rich Piana’s Real Food is just that. A nutritious carbohydrate powder that is made of…well…real food! For years, meal replacements have been a sad mix of cheap maltodextrin and sugars with some protein powder thrown in for good measure. This left you with a mix of subpar, cheap nutrition that spikes insulin and doesn’t have much other added health benefits. Well, just Rich Piana is here to change that with the introduction of Real Food.
Rich Piana’s Real Food is a whole food and carbohydrate matrix that gives you slow burner carbs, such as oatmeal, yams and sweet potatoes. All low glycemic, you won’t have the big impact on your blood sugar levels like other meal replacements of the past. In a convenient and ready to mix powder, Real Food gives you a flexible solution to your busy days and nights that can either added to meals or used as a standalone supplement during the day to get more carbohydrates and nutrients into your diet.
Whole Food Carbohydrates:
Not only does Rich Piana’s Real Food have a complete profile, but the flavor was perfected as well. With most meal replacement powders, you end up with a gritty, nasty un-mixable drink that you can hardly take down. Not with Real Food. Rich Piana wanted to formulate a meal replacement that not only tasted amazing, but was easily mixable so anyone could drink it.
