Four years ago, when I started my journey with Beachbody, I decided to lose these 25 pounds that just-wouldn’t-go-away with a high-intense-intervals training, HIIT, called Insanity. I was determined to get in the best shape of my life. But for that, I needed more than a training, I wanted the perfect shake to curb my cravings with all this combined I knew I would succeed! And I did. 60 days later, I’ve lost 25 pounds, learned clean eating, portion control and Shakeology gave me the energy I needed to go through this intense workout.
Four years later, I am now I proud Team Beachbody Coach, I keep drinking this amazing shake! It gives me all the vitamins, proteins and Superfood my body needs in a day. I either drink my Shakeology for breakfast, lunch or as a quick snack at work or school and after a workout.
In this post, I share a couple recipes I love with each of the four flavors Shakeology offers 🙂 !
Shakeology is more nutritious than a salad and tastes like a dessert!
What is Shakeology?
Shakeology is a nutritional protein shake that provides a wide spectrum of healthy nutrients in a low-calorie formula. Whether you use it as a meal replacement for weight loss or simply to ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs for optimal health, Shakeology takes the guesswork out of nutrition.
What’s in it?
Shakeology contains over 70 ultra high-quality ingredients conveniently located in one glass, to deliver nearly all the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy diet. It’s good for you, and good for everyone, because everyone’s diet is deficient in some of the key nutrient groups packed into just one Shakeology serving.
Protein from whey, which is highly absorbable, gives you 8 essential amino acids that help you build muscle, lose weight, support brain function, and keep your skin and bones healthy.
Vitamins and minerals support optimum health.
Antioxidants boost the immune system and help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, blood pressure, and stroke.
Phytonutrients support immune function and have anit-inflammatory properties.
Prebiotics support digestive and immune health.
Digestive enzymes help in the digestion of foods and increase the absorption rate of those foods for optimum health.
What can Shakeology do for you?
It is an effective way to help you lose weight, increase your energy and be the healthiest you can possibly be. Shakeology can help you reduce cravings and promote healthy digestion and regularity. Shakeology recomends that you replace one meal per day with a shake along with regular exercise and a balanced diet, participants who did this experienced remarkable health improvements. It can reduce your total cholesterol, reduce LDL cholesterol, reduce cardiovascular risk, and reduce oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
I love Shakeology because I am a busy person and it is a quick and convenient way to get complete nutrition. It supplies me with the energy I need to help keep up with my hectic lifestyle. It is also easier to make and tastier than a salad, and it is an excellent way to eat healthy when eating a full meal is not possible. If you don’t like eating fruits and vegetables then this is a great way to get all the benefits of eating a full bowl of fruits and vegetables without having to actually eat them. If you have high cholesterol then this will help you lower total and LDL as well.
How to use it?
It’s very simple.
Mix 1 scoop of Shakeology with 8 oz. of water. If you like, add ice. Or if you want something more filling and maybe even more satisfying, blend your Shakeology with ice and nonfat, almond, rice, or soy milk. Shakeology dissolves easily, but blending it will give it a thicker, creamier texture. Honestly, when I make my shakeology I always add more than 8 ounces because I think it’s too thick! The more liquid you add the thinner it gets!! 🙂
