As a LighterLife client you’ll find full instructions for mixing your Foodpacks on each packet, including recommended water quantities – but it’s fine to increase or decrease the amount of water you add, according to your own personal taste. Here are some tips to get you started.
Mix your favourite shake with cold water and some ice to make it extra cool – perfect for the summer days.
When mixing hot shakes and soups, add hot water and stir or whisk well, but don’t shake with boiling water.
Once mixed, eat your Foodpacks within 15 minutes to get the maximum nutrition, as the water-soluble vitamins they contain may start to break down in the presence of air and water.
All microwave instructions are based on an 800W category E microwave, so cooking times may vary according to microwave capacity.
