What is Shakeology and WHY do I drink it EVERY day?
Dubbed ‘the Healthiest Meal of the Day,’ Shakeology is an ultra-premium health shake which I LOVE! I can go on and on about what is in it and how good it is for you but before I do, let me tell you why I drink it: I love the energy I get from it & I find it helps reduce my cravings for sugary treats.
As a busy mom of 4 – I would often skip breakfast and just grab a latte at Starbucks. Now I am proud to say that I no longer drink coffee (CRAZY isn’t it?) and that for the cost of my grande soy latte I get a healthy meal which not only includes protein but also is equivalent to 5 trips to the salad bar. It usually serves as my breakfast and occasionally I have one for an afternoon snack or night time treat. Shakeology is a great meal for on-the-go moms like me.
I actually started drinking Shakeology a little over 3 years ago when my 4th child was born. As you can imagine, I was nursing a newborn along with managing a busy life with 3 other children. This meant I was pretty sleep deprived and super busy during the day. For my own piece of mind, I knew I needed to start exercising but I was completely exhausted and well, I really could not imagine doing so at the time. I did start drinking Shakeology though and I attribute the new founded energy I received to the shakes. This energy allowed me to return to working out and I was back to my pre-baby weight by the time she was a year old.
What is in Shakeology?
It contains more than 70 natural ingredients derived from rich, nutrient-dense whole-food sources from around the world. It has a unique blend of superfoods, protein, phytonutrients, prebiotics, probiotics, antioxidants, adaptogens and digestive enzymes. It is crazy to think that with all of this goodness packed into a shake – it actually tastes good, but it does. The fact that my kids (ranging from 3 -12 years old) ask for shakes is all of the proof I need of that.
Shakeology truly is NUTRITION SIMPLIFIED. I feel good knowing someone else has done all of the hard work concocting this shake and all I have to do is mix in my ingredients and blend/shake it up and then drink it. I love that it contains so many ingredients that herbalists and natural wellness doctors have been using for centuries to holistically heal and fuel the body.
Shakeology works in two ways. The patented daily nutritional shake helps your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. Shakeology can help you: lose weight, reduce cravings, feel energized and even improve your digestion and regularity. Oh and it tastes delicious, too (but I already told you that didn’t I?)
One of the BEST things about Shakeology is the Empty Bag Guarantee. Beachbody (the maker of Shakeology) is so sure that Shakeology will improve your health, that they have created an amazing guarantee. Try Shakeology for 30 days. If you don’t feel healthier, simply call Customer Service within 30 days for a refund of purchase price (less shipping & handling). Even if the bag is totally empty. NOW THAT SAYS it all to me!
