Garden of Life is the only powdered nutritional shake I actually like and don't find to bother my stomach. I used to used Ensure for bowel rest during Crohn's flare-ups, but I stopped being able to tolerate it and it took me forever to find a non-dairy, low sugar alternative that doesn't taste like straight up chemicals. I finally sprung for a can of Garden of Life and it's totally worth the price, especially if you stock up when it's on sale. It doesn't bother my stomach, is fairly filling, and at least gives me some nutrients when I'm on a limited diet. I mix it with almond milk, and when I'm feeling well enough for solids also blend it with some fruits, veggies, and maybe peanut butter and/or oats and/or flax or chia seeds. I'm not a fan of the marketing, but I'm glad to be done sampling disgusting shakes!
