Why do I love Shakeology?

I first became interested in Shakeology when watching the advertisements at the end of my workout program (which was Insanity at the time). Honestly, I wasn’t convinced that this shake would be enough to replace a meal, nor did I expect it to taste good enough to want to drink it every day. After going back and forth talking to my husband, I decided to buy the first bag. I went with chocolate...well because I love anything chocolate! What, you don’t?? ;) Anyway, when I received my first bag in the mail, I tried it right away. I was SHOCKED at how good it tasted. How could something this healthy taste so good? It came with a calendar of recipes to try and I also tried a few of those. After the first bag, I knew I was hooked. Prior to Shakeology, I rarely ate breakfast because I don’t really like most breakfast foods. Consequently, since I didn’t eat in the morning, by lunchtime I was ravenous and would eat everything in sight! After I started drinking my Shakeology for breakfast, it helped me to stay satisfied all morning. I wasn’t eating everything that I could get my hands on at lunch. I could make healthier decisions with normal portion sizes. I had also lost some pounds with this newly found lifestyle. I decided that I wanted to continue getting Shakeology monthly and to sign up as a coach to get the 25% discount. At this point, I was so early in my own journey, I didn’t realize how much I would love and want to be a coach myself. Find out more about my coaching journey here.

What is Shakeology?

Shakeology is a great tasting, nutrient dense protein shake that is made with healthy foods that we should be eating on a daily basis but many of us don’t. Whether you are drinking it as a meal replacement for weight loss or a supplement to optimize your health, Shakeology takes the guess work out of nutrition.

What is in it? 
Shakeology contains the perfect combination of proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics. It also contains many rare ingredients that we can get from an ordinary diet.

Protein from whey (rice protein replaces whey in the vegan formulas) along with essential amino acids help you to build lean muscle, lose weight, improve skin and hair, support brain function, improve mood and fight cravings.

Antioxidants and super fruits promote heart health, support joint health and keep your brain healthy.

Prebiotics and Probiotics help to promote regularity, support the intestinal tract, and improve digestion.

Digestive enzymes help the body break down foods and increase absorption of nutrients.

What can Shakeology do for you?

Shakeology is a great way to lose weight, increase energy, and get the extra nutrients we need. As a busy mom, it is quick, convenient, and gives me the energy I need to get through my day. It also makes me feel great and keeps me on track with my nutrition by reducing cravings.

How do you use it?

Shakeology is great mixed with water, milk (cow's milk, almond milk, coconut milk, etc.) or even juice for the fruit flavors. It can be mixed in a shaker cup or in a blender (like a magic bullet). You can also find TONS of recipes for Shakeology on the Team Beachbody site. Log into your account (or create your FREE account HERE), select the "Eat Smart" menu and the "Shakeology Recipes" options. from there you can choose your flavor and see the many options or you can experiment with anything you have in the kitchen.

How do I try it?

    • This is the perfect way to try Shakeology, without committing to the full-size bag or combo box.
    • Order your month's supply: (
      • Ordering Options:
        • Best Value: If there are any Beachbody programs that you are interested in, the best value for you is going to be to order a Challenge Pack. What that means is that you will get your first bag of Shakeology PLUS the workout at a discounted price. And of course, all of that comes with coaching from me which is always free. :) If you think this might be something you are interested in, contact me and we will discuss the right workout program for you!
        • Combo Pack/Single Servings box - These will come in a box with 24 packets like what you received as a sample. There are many different flavor combinations including a neapolitan box with 8 chocolate, 8 vanilla, and 8 strawberry.
        • 30 Serving Bag - These will come in a 30 serving bag in your flavor of choice. You can choose two different flavors to alternate months when you choose home direct.
      • Shipping Options:
        • One time order: Ordering one bag or box of Shakeology. This option requires you to pay approximately $15 shipping.
        • Home Direct - The shipping for this option is $2. This is that I recommend because it will save you the extra shipping costs. While it does sign you up for the automated monthly shipping, you can cancel ANY time by sending an email or making a quick phone call (even after the first month). You can also change your flavors as often as you want.
