I get asked a lot about Shakeology and how it compares to other shakes that are much cheaper in price. The truth is, yes, other shakes are cheaper. Other shakes; however, do not have what Shakeology has. So I ask, would you rather spend the money to get something that you know is good for you? Or would you rather spend less money on something that may not be as satisfying and nutritional? The other approach that people tend to take is the whole, drinking a shake for a meal. I will be the first to admit that I was an anti-shake person. I thought people were CRAZY for drinking a shake to replace a meal! There have been many times at lunch where I would watch my co-workers slurp down a shake while I sat there and ate my food. I felt so bad for eating in front of them and the look on their faces said it all! So when I joined a Summer Slim Down Challenge group, I knew that I would have to give it a try. The only reason why I was ok with it was because I'm not a big fan of cooking, and this would take at least one meal away from having to be in the kitchen!
So when I got my Chocolate Shakeology, I figured I'd give it a try before the first day of the challenge group. I took the advice from my coach and mixed one scoop of Shakeology with 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk, and Ice. I bought myself a handy blender from Target and blended away! I was pleasantly surprised at the taste! I'm pretty sure within five minutes the entire glass was gone! I almost felt guilty for enjoying what tasted like a chocolate milkshake for breakfast! What was even more amazing to me was that I felt full! I was typically a bagel or sugary cereal type of person and even after I'd eat either, I felt like I could still eat more. Worse yet was I felt starving within the next hour! So it was nothing short of a miracle that I not only drank a chocolate shake for breakfast, but I wasn't even hungry for at least 2 1/2 hour or so later! As my challenge group continued I experimented with different recipes. I found that adding a half banana was delicious; however, my favorite it add a small amount of mint extract. I love the chocolate mint taste! I owe Shakeology to a large portion of my success on getting fit and healthy. It is my go-to if I know I'm going to be somewhere that won't have healthy choices for me. It is my go-to for my sweet tooth, which I definitely have. And it is my go-to for my healthiest meal of the day. Needless to say, the only regret I have it not trying it sooner!
So, now that you know my story behind drinking Shakeology, you are probably thinking, what makes it so healthy?
