Why I LOVE Shakeology!
This super food shake has been a game-changer for me!
After my son was born, I struggled for months to shed that baby weight. I couldn’t fit into my favorite pair of jeans (or any of my pants for that matter) and I sure didn’t want to spend the money on a new wardrobe. I dreaded taking my kids to the indoor pool because that self-conscious monster had clamped his teeth into me and wouldn’t let go. I didn’t like looking at myself in the mirror. I didn’t feel good about myself.
I tried many different things before finding Shakeology. The things that used to work for me were no longer working and let me tell you – I was frustrated!
It’s not like I had an unhealthy diet, per say. We mainly followed a paleo-type meal plan. I cooked healthy meals. I didn’t eat fast food. But, looking back (because hind-sight is always 20/20) I realized I was eating when I wasn’t hungry. Especially at night, after I put the kids to bed because I figured I deserved a treat. I would have graham crackers, or cheese and crackers, or cereal or cookies etc.
The thing is, I was eating healthy during the day but by the time those kids were in bed and I was parked on the couch with my husband, it was snack time. The other thing is it was getting harder and harder for me to get to the gym or to workout classes. Even though I only added one more kid to the mix, my schedule became exponentially more busy.
I found myself saying – I’ll workout tomorrow. I’ll start eating better tomorrow. I won’t snack tomorrow.
But tomorrow became never and I was feeling worse and worse about myself. Not to mention that physically, I could tell my blood sugar was all out of whack and I didn’t have much energy to run around with my kids and play with them. And this seriously bummed me out.
Enough was enough. I started researching healthy eating. I posted questions on Facebook about things that I found and then one day I ran into Shakeology. I posted a question about it on Facebook and a friend of mine messaged me and offered to give me some samples.
I was HOOKED! I didn’t have any more cravings at night! I started to have more energy! I started getting up early to do workouts at home! I started feeling better on the inside and looking better on the outside. And, a serious bonus – my favorite skinny jeans finally fit again!
I LOVE Shakeology for what it has done for me and my family! I LOVE it because I can whip up breakfast quickly, take it with me in the car and know that I am filling my body with dense nutrition. It fills me up. It tastes delicious! It changed how I feel inside and out!
(Not to mention that my kids love this stuff too!)

What’s in it?
Shakeology is the most delicious, nutrient-dense, superfood shake you’ll find! It’s made with the healthy stuff you should be eating every day, but typically don’t. Shakeology’s the perfect combination of proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics. Plus, it also contains many rare ingredients, including adaptogens, camu-camu, and maca root—things we can’t get from an ordinary diet.
Fast food does not have to be fried, fattening and greasy! Shakeology is a healthy, delicious, nutrient-packed fast food!
What is a super food?
Super foods are incredibly healthy! These foods are low in calories, high in nutrients, and go beyond meeting basic nutritional needs. Instead, they have high concentrations of multiple nutrients that work together to support the immune system so you will feel better, look better and have more energy!
How to prepare Shakeology:
It’s pretty simple, actually! Since Shakeology quickly dissolves when added to any liquid, you can easily prepare it in a shaker cup. Or if you’re craving the consistency of a smoothie or milkshake, use a blender and toss in some ice and a 1/2 to 1 frozen banana (I recommend this method).
All you do is mix 1 scoop of Shakeology with 8 to 12 fl oz of water, milk, or a milk alternative (almond milk, rice milk, or coconut water), ice, and either shake or blend—then enjoy! And if your taste buds are feeling a little adventurous, check out our array of recipes at Shakeology.com. (I recommend using a milk alternative instead of water!)
