Going to Thailand…

Hi everyone,

I’m really looking forward to the end of July, I’ll go to Thailand with my fiancΓ©. We’re going for two weeks and it’s the first holiday abroad for two years now, so I am really excited.

I got all necessary vaccinations by now, got my passport and I guess now everything is prepared. Except one thing – I still need to make up my mind what kind of formula I will take with me – and I need the official letter from my doctor for it (in case anyone from the customs wants to know about it – but during previous traveling noone ever wanted to see it πŸ˜‰

I cannot make up which kind of formula I want. Tablets would be good for its easy in-take. But I would have to take 4 boxes with me, which would take a lot of space. Those ready-to-drink formulas like easiphen f. e. would be handy too but I cannot drink them… 😦 I cannot stand their taste. Well, I think it will be some powdry formula, though it’s pretty difficult handling while being on road.
I think that keeping the diet will be pretty easy, since I love veggies and the Thai way of cooking – I also like rice and guess there will be a lot of fresh fruits available. I won’t be taking any low protein bread with me but I guess that won’t be of any problem. We will be traveling with my stepmother and she’s Thai and knows all the places we’re going perfectly well so I can always be sure to get exactly the food I want to πŸ˜‰

What about you? Will you go on holiday this year?

I will let you know about my trip in detail and you will see a lot of photos too, once I’m back – and I promise to write blogs for those days in advance, so you will be busy reading some nice topics, too πŸ™‚

Love,

Testing Kit- Milupa Formula

Hi everyone,

a few days ago I received the Milupa-testing kit for formula – they have different “shakes” with different amounts of protein. I prepared the strawberry formula with 14g protein as breakfast today (it’s enriched with fat acids, so I guess it’s no problem to have not a breakfast together with it)

Here’s a pic of the prepared shake. It tastes really good… I like it and since it’s only 14 g protein per shake, its taste is not so strong (normally you can taste this strong aftertaste, typically for amino acids I think πŸ™‚

I guess the flavors / formulas aren’t new at all, but Milupa is promoting a new composition without artificial flavors, colouring supplements or artifical sweetners. Which is really a good thing – since you’re likely to consum this on a daily base. πŸ™‚

I also ordered samples of the chocolate flavour with 14g protein, mokka with 21g protein, cacao with 21g protein, pink orange with 21g protein and a tomatoe soup formula with 14g protein, which can be drunk for lunch f. e.

I’m really excited about the last one, since I think this is a fantastic and unique idea, taking your formula directly together with lunch or supper.

In my opinion, Milupa made a great effort providing this great variety of samples for testing, they also provide leaflets with exact formula description and had a nice box (matching the theme -where everything was packed into). Even they promise a gift card for an internet shop when you’re giving feedback by mail how you liked the samples.

Of course I will keep you updated with the other testings πŸ™‚ I will show you pics, too. Nevertheless, I think that the products are not available outside of Germany yet – but if there’s an interest in those formulas from your side I will be pleased to ask Milupa whether there’s a possibility to obtain those (samples as well as full size products) from abroad.

Are you also interested in the exact composition of the shake? I could release this here too if you want to, but I’m not quite sure whether you want to read this.

Love,
