How 1 Shake Changed My Life!

What if I told you that you could wake up every single day and have a chocolate shake for 1 of your meals (or a snack) and that it was healthy!!!

Now you probably think I’m crazy don’t you? But I promise I’m not lying to you!

Shakeology® is the name of this amazing shake! My favorite of course is the chocolate but that’s not the only flavor (just in case chocolate isn’t you’re thing!). Keep reading and I’ll tell you all about it!

You’re probably wondering what this Shakeology® thing is right? (I mean other than an amazingly tasty and healthy shake of course!). I promise that I will get to that but first I feel like there are a few things that I need to tell you about Shakeology®. As I was doing my research on this product (so that I could give you nothing but the facts) I found some “myths” about Shakeology® and the truth behind them! So here they are…

  1. It’s just a protein shake…..no!!! Here’s why: Not all shakes are created equally (people aren’t so why should shakes be?!?). Shakeology® has a ton of awesome superfoods in it. It is a whole food nutrient-dense shake that can replace any meal! The majority of people in the world are more nutrient deficient, not protein deficient!
  2. It’s all about carbs, proteins, and fats….. If you are eating clean, shouldn’t the supplements or shakes that you’re putting into your body be clean too?? I mean think about it. If you’re doing all this hard work why ruin it with a protein shake filled with artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, artificial stimulants, artificial flavors and soy products?? Well if you drink Shakeology® you don’t have to worry about that because it doesn’t have any of that in it!
  3. Shakes are just fillers and extracts…. It is very difficult to use whole, plant-based ingredients and be able to maintain all of the nutritional value. However, Shakeology has an amazing team of scientists whose mission is to maximize the nutrition in every single ingredient that goes into the shake! How awesome is that?!?
  4. Shakeology is expensive….. I’m not gonna lie, it is expensive BUT hear me out on this one! Let’s do a little math (yes I know I hate math too but bear with me!) A healthy meal costs anywhere between $3 and $7 (keep in mind fast food meals are also that much!). Shakeology comes to you in a single bag that has 30 servings in it, and if you divide the price of one bag by 30 you get $4.33 per shake. So technically it comes in on the low end of the average price for meals. On top of that it will provide you with a solid base of whole-food nutrients and replaces your vitamins and probiotics. If you tried to duplicate the quality of the ingredients and nutrients in one serving of this amazing shake…it would be so much more expensive!
  5. It’s only for weight loss….. NOO!!! This is about your health! When you put the right nutrients in your body that it needs then you are going to see certain results. Weight-loss is just a by-product of all the amazing nutrition that you’re putting in your body!

 

Okay now that we’ve gotten that out of the way let me tell you more about this amazing shake that I love so much!

Not only will it transform your health with ease but according to clinical studies and customer reported benefits include (everyone loves statistics right!!!) after 90 days Shakeology® will…

Okay enough fun facts about the shake!! Let me share with you which flavor I’ve been drinking and how I like to make my shake!

I chose the Vegan Chocolate flavor for my first round. (I just received my second shipment and this time I changed it to the “Barista” pack which comes with Vegan Chocolate, Vegan Vanilla and Vegan Mocha I believe — so an updated recipe blog will be coming soon!!).

This first recipe has been my go-to recipe since day 1…

  • Water
  • Ice
  • 1 scoop of Vegan Chocolate Shake-O
  • Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 of a banana

 

This second recipe I’ve been doing more recently because one day I ran out of banana’s and this is what I had in the fridge….

  • Water
  • Ice
  • 1 scoop of Vegan Chocolate Shake-O
  • 1 cup of fresh fruit (either strawberries or blackberries)

 

This third one I tried the other day and it was so good….
