What is Shakeology?

August 1, 2017

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

Health Benefits:

  • 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.

If you love Shakeology and cost is a concern, ask me how you can become a preferred customer to save 25%!
