Be You Nutrition began selling its healthy meal replacements on Jan. 6 this year.

“These are healthy meal replacements, so you get one shot of aloe, a tea and a protein shake,” explained Amanda Lee, who owns Be You Nutrition with her husband Garrett. Garrett is also a real estate agent for Keller Williams Realty in Baxter. The couple has lived in Aitkin for four years.

They offer a variety of tea flavors, such as Gobbler Mojo (cherry/orange) and Mermaid (strawberry/watermelon), and shake flavors, including french vanilla, french toast and cookies and cream.

The couple hopes to install furniture, such as couches and tables, in the store within the next month.

“Right now you get groups of people who come in and they hover (at the counter) because there’s no place to go,” said Amanda.

Be You Nutrition is located on Minnesota Ave. in the former Sew, Much & More building north of the stoplight. It has a Facebook and Instagram page, and offers discounts to customers who post about the business on social media.
