If you’re in the market for a few pounds of wheat germ or a scolding for topping off last night’s fettuccini Alfredo with lava cake, Pleasant Nutrition is not the place for you.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a friendly, colorful place offering delicious shakes packed with wholesome ingredients, you’ll have come to the right place.
As Pleasant Nutrition co-owner Amanda Murray put it, “You’re looking for a better you, and you’ve tried a lot of supplement plans but didn’t continue with them because they didn’t taste good.”
She continued, “At Pleasant Nutrition, everything tastes good and makes you want to come back and feel healthy. Everything here will make you feel good on the inside so that you can feel good on the outside.”
The underlying principle for Pleasant Nutrition is to offer a wide range of replacement shake tastes, including seasonal and holiday flavors, and to encourage you to substitute them for one or more meals per day, depending upon your goals.
Murray knows something about achieving those goals. In fact, she co-founded Pleasant Nutrition in 2019 because she knew she wanted to lose some weight – and, boy, did she lose weight. (If you want to know how much weight, just drop by and ask her. She’s not shy about it).
While you’re there, try a banana fudge shake, a cinnamon roll shake, a melon colada tea or any one of their kaleidoscope of refreshing iced beverages.
If your preference is a hot tea, you won’t be disappointed. Just try their vanilla chai, Carolina peach or spiced apple. Or how about a protein-infused iced coffee? Maybe better yet, many of their shakes also can be served hot.
Pleasant Nutrition is a female and veteran-owned business – Amanda’s brother Shawn Rhives is U.S. Army – and its fan base is growing exponentially. As you read this, Pleasant Nutrition will have opened a second store in Columbia.
This writer plans on visiting their Mount Pleasant location at Wando Crossing to sample the healthful drink he’s just learned about that could replace any of his meals – their carrot cake shake!
