inForm in 2021: Form’s Top 10 Stories From the Past Year
2021 was a year of firsts for both Form, and our content platform, inForm. With the former, we managed to conjure up two new delicious flavours — Choc Hazelnut and Banoffee — along with our first-ever vegan multivitamin, Multi, and vegan meal replacement, Peakblend.
As for the latter, well, along with publishing a myriad of great digital reads, we also put together issue number one of an IRL, physical, touch that recycled, sustainably sourced paper it’s so real, inForm magazine, containing a deep dive into the history of protein, a profile on a game-changing ballet troupe, and an interview with a leading neuroscientist on how to control that little, terribly annoying voice in your head.
We’re already hard at work planning issue two for you to discover in your orders from some time early next year. But before then take a wander down memory lane with us as we look back at 10 of our most popular articles from 2021. Open them all up on your browser, grab a green tea (or a protein shake) and enjoy.
