I started using the vegan plenny shake a month or so ago. I have a friend who used it to loose weight some years ago, but I never became interested on trying it myself, as I like to eat a lot
Then after some time I went to my favorite vegan store (vegabond, in Amsterdam) and I saw packs of Jimmy Joy under their old name. I thought I’d buy one just because I always buy one of every new product I find at this store
Then one day I had to go out for a busking session with my band and I had no time to prepare any food, so I remembered I had the powder and quickly prepared one glass for the go.
I was afraid of trying Jimmy Joy out because, since I like to eat a lot, I thought I would drink all these very nutritious calories an I would be hungry as hell half an hour after. What then? I would be forced to have another solid meal and then I would be having twice as many calories, or more… But to my surprise I was able to play perfectly all afternoon, never felt tired and, more importantly for me, I never got hungry! I actually felt very full all day.
Since then I have been having Jimmy Joy for breakfast and lunch every weekday. Being a vegan, there isn’t much choice for nutritionally-balanced vegan lunch where I work. Around the center of Amsterdam I have around 5 vegan options, of which probably 1 or 2 are nutritionally complete meals. After having these options for the last 3-4 years, I was getting sick of them. Jimmy Joy has been a great solution. It’s easy, nutritionally balanced, and for some reason I (still?) haven’t gotten tired of the flavors at all. So far it’s been a game-changer.
So, happy to be part of the community. I am waiting to be granted permission to post new topics on the General Discussion section, as I have a few questions to my fellow vegans who also use the plenny shake.
So, see you around!
