A ready-to-drink breakfast: the ideal solution for an easy breakfast
Making breakfast can be time consuming. Especially if you want to make a healthy breakfast. A breakfast drink is then the ideal solution to start your day healthy and without wasting time.
Is a breakfast drink healthy?
A breakfast drink comes in all kinds of different varieties: you have the well-known drinking yoghurt with fruit and various breakfast drinks with cereals and/or with dairy, for example. Fruit, dairy and fibre are all healthy for our body. So in itself you could say that a breakfast drink is healthy.
However, there are many breakfast drinks on the market that contain a large portion of sugar, making them less healthy than you might think. In addition, the portions of many breakfast drinks are often too small and contain too few calories to get through a whole morning, making you more likely to grab (unhealthy?) snacks in between.
Of course there are also breakfast drinks on the market where everything is included and you can’t lump them all together. However, there are a number of things you have to watch out for if you want a breakfast drink ta replacement for a full healthy breakfast.
What should be in a healthy breakfast?
Take a good look at what’s on the packet of a drinking breakfast. A good and healthy breakfast should contain on average about 400 kCal to get through the day optimally and contains a number of fundamental components.
Most important, and known, are your macronutrients: the three primary building blocks your body needs on a daily basis. Aim for a good ratio of your macronutrients in your breakfast:
- Protein: 10 to 35% of the total kCal
- Carbohydrates: 45 to 65% of the total kCal (focus on complex carbohydrates)
- Fats: 20 to 35% of the total kCal (focus on unsaturated fats)
We often think less of them, but are in no case less important.. the micronutrients. These include vitamins and minerals. Think of vitamins such as vitamin B and vitamin C or well-known minerals such as iron, magnesium and calcium.
Although micronutrients often receive less attention in our diet than macronutrients, they have a lot of positive (and necessary) effects on our body and our health and it is important that you get enough of them on a daily basis.

The advantages of a breakfast drink
You save time
An extensive and healthy breakfast requires time and energy. Not only does your alarm clock have to be set just that little bit earlier, but it takes a bit of time to put together a healthy breakfast in the morning and tidy everything up afterwards. Precious time that you don’t always have when you have a lot of other things on your mind. A drink that you can consume as a quick breakfast will save you a lot of worries on those days when you really don’t get around to it.
A breakfast drink can boost your productivity at work, simply because you can multitask and feel more energised. How easy is it to be able to work at your desk and take a sip of your breakfast drink every now and then, without taking up a lot of time and space? In the time that you would otherwise have prepared your breakfast, you’ve already had breakfast and those first mails are already out the door.
Tracking your calories more easily
Whether your goal is to lose weight, keep your current weight or gain weight, monitoring your calorie intake is essential. Making your own breakfast or a breakfast drink with all the different ingredients and dosages is a lot harder to measure your calories perfectly. With a breakfast drink like Tamashi’s, that problem is completely solved. You know perfectly how many calories your breakfast drink contains and what the ratio of macro- and micronutrients is. So you can perfectly integrate your breakfast into your diet or nutrition plan.
When it checks the right boxes, a breakfast drink can be a great alternative for an easy, healthy and quick breakfast.
