Dr Gaye Super-Shake

Who is Dr Morgaine Gaye?

Dr Morgaine Gaye is a food and nutrition expert and a Food Futurologist. She is the genius behind the range of shakes and products.

Dr Gaye produces foods that are designed to do you good. She carefully designs the formulas for the shakes and the porridges that she markets.

The Super Porridge is interesting. It is ideal for people who are gluten intolerant as it contains no oats.

After preparing it with hot milk or hot water in the recommended manner, the porridge it creates has an interesting flavour. It contains dried fruits, (Dried White Mulberries)  but these are amazingly succulent and if you hadn't just prepared the meal yourself, you'd be forgiven for not being aware that they had been rehydrated.

Dr Gaye realises that the flavours of her products might not be to the liking of everyone, so suggests that you can add flavours such as natural vanilla to them. However, we found the taste more than acceptable.

So what is the Dr Gaye Super-Shake product range?

In her own words: "It offers high-performance foods that deliver bio-available, food-grade nutrients and vitamins which fit into a busy life-style.

All the products are organic, grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, 100% raw, unprocessed, vegetarian and perfect for diets such as: Paleo, raw, 5:2, Bullet Proof and alkaline."

The product that we tried was the Super Porridge, which costs £14.50 for 500 grammes.

You can see a talk that Dr Gaye gives on this product, here:

Other products that are available are: Dr Gaye Super-Shake, Dr Gaye Super-Blend and Dr Gaye Super-Spoonful.

Aldi can help you get back in shape!

If you are anything like us, you'll have indulged in all the good things that were on offer from Aldi over the Christmas season (The failings of my wife and I are the traditional German biscuits, the Stollen, the mince pies, the cheese boards and the cheese biscuits and the mulled wines!)

But this all comes at a bit of a price and when the festive season is over, it’s time to make amends. And Aldi can help you do that, too!

And it will not cost you very much, either! Aldi Specialbuys Yoga and Fitness Range will launch in stores on 2nd January 2015.

There'll be a large range of new yoga gear, home gym equipment and fitness accessories, so there's everything you need to get fit, healthy and in shape this New Year for less than you might think.


With super soft Lycra Yoga Capri Pants (£6.99), super soft and loose fitting Yoga Leggings (£8.99) and breathable, extra-long length Yoga Tops (£5.99) - all designed to provide high stretch yet remain comfortable, you’ll be mastering your yoga poses effortlessly.

Complete the look with a long sleeved hooded thermal Yoga Jacket (£11.99), featuring a moisture management system to help you stay dry during your workout, as well as an audio port for your MP3 player or ipod so you can enjoy listening to your favourite songs while exercising.

 To complete your yoga kit, Aldi also has a fantastic Yoga and Pilates Accessories Set (£4.99), a must for any keen yoga enthusiast, which includes yoga balls, yoga blocks, pilates rings and fitness bands.
There’s also a Yoga Mat and Foam Roller Set (£6.99) that’s perfect to help improve your core strength and prevent your hands and feet from slipping when trying out your best plank or bridge pose.


If you’re looking to do a more high energy class, the High Impact Sports Bra (£12.99), available in black or white, will make you feel comfortable and supported whilst you burn those calories.

Combine this with a pair of Fitness Trainers (£11.99) available in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and you’ll be ready to sweat and really work it at your next aerobics class.

The new range also includes a fantastic selection of gym equipment so you can kit out your home with the latest gear and ditch the expensive gym membership. With colourful cast iron Kettlebells from 2.5kg (£6.99) up to 7.5kg (£11.99) as well as 1kg, 2kg and 3kg ergonomically shaped Dumbbells (£6.49) you’ll be able to build and tone muscles.

To reduce impact and keep you comfortable, grab a soft foam Fitness Mat (£7.99), made with two layers for added padding.

If you’re struggling to feel motivated, grab a pair of Sports Earphones and Armband (£4.99) so you can play some great workout tunes to get you in the mood. Producing superior sound quality, these in-ear earphones are super comfortable and great for when you’re on the move.

With the new Aldi Specialbuys Yoga and Fitness Range you’ll be able to look great and feel great this January, but do remember they really are SpecialBuys, so when they’re gone, they’re really gone!
