Meal replacement powders, also known as MRPs are nutritionally complete foods. Meal replacements can be found as powders or even as bar forms. These meal replacers contain a specific blend of protein, carbohydrates and fat alongside vitamins, minerals and any other foods added as fortification to the product. These are packed in such a balanced and nutritionally dense manner that meal replacements can be a great go-to for breakfast or lunch or a quick but filling snack or simply when you are in a rush.
Here is a simple way to create your own meal replacement bar at home:
