Disclosure: I received product in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% mine.
I think I see the end of winter in sight! Here we are a week later and our weather is already starting to warm up. I have to admit the low this morning was a crisp 28 degrees but we are forecasted to get up to the low 60s this afternoon. Not bad for New York state in the closing weeks of March.
Keeping It Simple: folks, new data shows the growing popularity of plant-based diets. But, how do you start if you are over 50 years old?
“As we age, our nutritional requirements differ than when we were younger — but healthy, plant-based snacking is craved amongst all generations. That’s why we created the plant protein snack, ‘Daily Gut & Brain’,” says Sara Bonham, Perennial Co-Founder.
Perennial® — created in tandem by the co-founder of Beyond Meat — is a tasty, plant-based, high-protein, dairy-free ‘mini-meal.’ They saw this plant-based trend on the horizon several months ago. “This crowd craves these new food innovations as much as younger generations,” adds Bonham. “Bottom line: plant-based snacking should be simple and delicious — no matter what your age.”
What Did We Think of Perennial?
My wife is always a chocolate fan but was willing to try both the vanilla and the chocolate. Since we are over 50 we are trying to be more mindful of what we are putting into our bodies.
We found that Perennial not only had a great taste but it reminded my wife of drinking Yoohoo. BUT better. Yoohoo was popular when we were kids so although I am mentioning it in comparison as it is only to compare the consistency as well as the delicious chocolate flavor. What is better is that Perennial is a plant-based nutrition drink as well as vegan. This drink includes DHA Omega-3, it contains 5 grams of fiber and 8 grams of complete protein. You will feel good knowing it is gluten-free, non-GMO, and ready right out of the package. You can purchase a 4 pack that contains 2 chocolate and 2 vanilla here on Amazon before purchasing a whole case.
