How to prepare your LighterLife Foodpacks like a pro!

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 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.
