Q & A

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what 3 things would you take with you?
My beautiful wife, my two wonderful daughters and of course FUTURELIFE®!

Favourite quote or words that you live by:
MATT 6:33 ‘”But seek ye first the kingdom of
 God and His righteousness and 
all these things shall be
added unto you”

In your opinion, what makes a good food choice?
We were designed to enjoy eating so for me taste is very important. The fact that it needs to be nutritious is a given and also as close to natural as possible.

How did you discover FUTURELIFE®?
My mother-in-law introduced it to me! She discovered it and my initial scepticism was neutralised after the first bowl.

How long have you been using FUTURELIFE® products for?
Approximately 2 years

How do you incorporate FUTURELIFE® into your diet?
Since my main sport activities are mountain biking and trail running I use it as a pre training snack. The type of work I do has me travelling a lot so I always pack some FUTURELIFE® in so that I always have a decent meal close at hand.

What is your favourite way to eat FUTURELIFE®?
I LOVE it most with cold milk but have often substituted the milk with water and it great that way too!

How do you feel about FUTURELIFE® as a brand and how would you describe it to others?
I discovered FUTURELIFE® a few years ago and was hooked immediately. Apart form the great taste and ease of preparation, it proved to be an incredibly effective and practical meal. I firmly attribute my having been able to complete the ABSA Cape Epic successfully, in a large part to FUTURELIFE®, since diet is an integral part of any extreme sport or stage race. One of the great concerns when it comes to choosing the right kind of food products these days, is whether or not they contain Genetically engineered ingredients. The manufacturers of FUTURELIFE® recently went to great lengths (and costs) to change to 100% Non GMO ingredients. The sheer magnitude of the operation in moving to Non GMO production is nothing short of impressive and indicates a sincere awareness of responsibility to the consumer, a quality that is incredibly rare these days.
