Franke: Liquid Meals – Are They The Future?
For many people, everyday working life is becoming increasingly complex and difficult to plan. This is creating an urgent need for flexible and – above all – fast food.
Fast food doesn’t even have to mean forgoing a healthy, balanced diet. Technological innovations and digitization are key drivers behind developments in time-saving food trends.
For many, liquid meals are the way of the future. It’s a simple and effective way to combine all the nutrients and minerals the body needs in one compact and healthy meal.
Some people may have issues with the idea of a future in which our “food” consists of pills, shakes and powders. But this development is not actually all that new, even if the trend has intensified in recent years. We have long been familiar with the concept of astronaut food and energy bars for athletes. The smoothie is another well-known version of this trend. With maximum efficiency, it manages to appeal to a wide audience by combining everything in one drink.
Take your health into your own hands and ensure well-balanced and nutritious meal alternatives for the benefit of your family.
