I Admit: I Did NOT Want to Do Shakeology

I am a real food girl. I don’t do – didn’t do – protein shakes, protein bars, and meal replacement stuff. I wanted to be a Beachbody coach because I love the workouts, but wasn’t sure about the shakeology stuff. I ordered the Cafe Latte flavor just to try it, and it was perfect timing. I had a couple very serious situations occur and didn’t have time to cook meals at all. I literally ran home to see the kids, make sure everything was good at home, kiss my hubby, and grab a shake before I had to head out the door again.

It was awesome. You might not believe little things like this are from God, but I do. I’ve never even had one of these things in my life and right when I need it, I just happen to have it? Coincidence? I don’t think so.

So, I decided to tell you guys about it. If you click on my links, I will make a few bucks to keep this site going and I appreciate it. I am doing this because it works for me and I think it will work for you.

The Truth is This: The American Diet is Terrible.

Hardly any of us eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. Packaged food or fast food, which is completely overprocessed and non-nutritious, is readily available and convenient when we are sprinting through life. We have no fuel to keep us going efficiently – we are constantly running on empty.

Enter in Shakeology.

Shakeology is packed with some of the world’s most potent, nutritious, and delicious ingredients, it’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to help you eat healthy, stay satisfied, and live a healthy life. It’s like a salad in a glass. No chopping or buying a ton of ingredients – just put a scoop in a glass, add your beverage of choice (water, milk, almond milk, whatever), and drink!

What’s In It?

ALL of this stuff! Proteins, antioxidants, phytonutrients, prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and more!

What Does It Do For My Body?

Shakeology nourishes your body with the nutrients it needs and craves. Because of this, it can help boost energy, curb cravings, and promote regularity. Plus, it’s been clinically proven to aid in weight loss, lower cholesterol, and reduce blood sugar levels (as measured by HbA1C).

Give Me Some Examples.

Sure! Check this out.

Does it Taste Good?

Yes! I was a little skeptical because I’ve never tried a meal replacement before. I didn’t know what to expect. I have the Cafe Latte flavor (because I LOVE coffee!) and it’s fantastic! My favorite thing is to blend it with almond milk, ice, and a little vanilla extract. Bingo! The iced coffee I love, without all the added sugar.

It’s only 150 calories, so you can doctor it up with milk and add in fruit, nuts, oatmeal, peanut butter, whatever you like, and use it as a meal replacement. Or, mix it with water or almond milk for a low-calorie, healthy treat.

Here’s More Recipe Ideas:
