So, what is Shakeology? Have you seen the posts on social media and it looks like the people that drink it are part of some crazy cult? There is a good reason why we all LOVE this shake.
Shakeology is a nutrient-dense, superfood packed, meal replacement protein shake. The amount of nutrition inside each one is something you will NOT find in the average protein or meal replacement shake.
Before I touch on what is inside Shakeology, I think it is important to touch on what is NOT inside it:
- NO Artificial Sweeteners
- NO Artificial Colors
- NO Artificial Flavors
- NO Artificial Stimulants
- NO Soy
Shakeology is packed with:
- Superfoods! It contains 70 superfoods which include wheat grass, chia seed, maca root, quinoa, flax, kale, antioxidants and many more.
- Probiotics, Prebiotics and Fiber
- Digestive Enzymes
- Vitamins and Minerals
- Promotes Weight Loss
- Helps curb cravings for Junk food
- Improves digestion
- Increased energy
Ok, that’s enough of me talking in bullet points. I originally thought Shakeology was a total overhyped, cult product. Eventually I joined Beachbody and Shakeology came with the challenge pack that I bought. I had very low expectations for this stuff!
I’m still surprised by how much I have liked Shakeology and how good I feel since drinking it daily. I’m a working mom who is usually running out of the house trying to get to work on time in the mornings. Shakeology is my breakfast every day. I wouldn’t have time for breakfast otherwise. Sometimes on very busy days, I also have this as a mid-day snack.
Since I began drinking Shakeology, I have felt more focused and have more energy despite averaging about 4 hours of sleep every night! At the end of the day, I know if I didn’t eat anything else that was good for me, I at least got a ton of nutrients from my shake. I feel that it is important to note that it is safe to drink the Vegan formulas of Shakeology while pregnant or nursing. I surprisingly also noticed an increase in my supply while nursing, sorry if that’s an overshare! My favorite flavors are chocolate and cafe latte!
As a total penny pincher, I can easily admit that there are other shakes or smoothies out there that do not cost as much. But I will say this, be sure that you are not simply comparing the macros (protein, fat, carbs) while failing to look at the other nutrients. Most healthy meals cost between $7 to $12, while Shakeology costs $4.30 per shake. When you break it down, Shakeology really isn’t that expensive, you are just buying it in bulk essentially.
I hope that helped clear up most of the questions that you may have had. If you have any more questions, I am always happy to help answer them! Inquire below.
