Fondren Nutrition plans to open Thursday, February 7, 2019.

Fondren gets in on the meal replacement shake and loaded tea craze this week with the opening of Fondren Nutrition.

The shop will open on Thursday Friday on the eastern end of the Woodland Hills Shopping Center, more recently home to Au Courant and M. Nicholas Collection.

Owner Jessica Aldy and her mother Melissa Aldy join a network of sister shops all across the metro area (the closest, LeFleur East’s Fierce Nutrition) to bring a line of low in carbohydrates, low in sugar and Keto-friendly shakes to the neighborhood.

“We are excited to make Fondren healthier and happier,” Jessia Aldy said. “Both I and my mom will be working in the store and can’t wait to make a difference in the community.”

The shakes contain no dairy and no milk products. Most all shakes are gluten-free and range between 200-250 calories. The base powder provides 24 grams of protein.

Then there are the teas.

Fondren Nutrition said a loaded tea is different than any tea you’ve ever had before. “It’s not your typical Southern Sweet Tea! A loaded tea gives you energy throughout the day plus it’s made with antioxidants and vitamins. It has no sugar, only 24 calories, B vitamins & caffeine for energy, ginseng and guarana for hunger control and mental focus!”

The teas include aloe as a digestion aid and come in flavors like mermaid, Captain America, Ninja Turtle and watermelon Jolly Rancher. They are touted as energy-boosting without the side effects of other energy supplements.
