Shakeology 101

What is Shakeology?
Shakeology is an ultimate nutritional health shake with 70+ superfood ingredients to help you attain and maintain a healthy weight, gain energy, grow healthy hair, skin, and nails, keep you fuller for longer, decrease your junk food cravings, and even save you money on food. With the quality of the air we breathe every day, and the worsening quality of the food we eat and the water that we drink, Shakeology is a staple in a modern healthy diet. You can replace a meal with a delicious shake every single day for just over $4/day!

Who needs it?
Everyone! I stand behind this product 100% and I would recommend it to every friend, coworker, and family member I have! Shakeology is not a weight-loss shake or a protein shake; it simply provides tons of awesomely beneficial nutrients that we have trouble adding into our diet otherwise.

What’s in it?
You probably keep hearing the phrase “superfood,” and are wondering “What is actually in this shake that makes it so outstanding?” Here are just a few of the 70+ ingredients (non-vegan formula):

Whey.
Chia.
Flax.
Quinoa.
Brown Rice.
Pea.
Camu-Camu.
Acai.
Goji Berry.
Green Tea.
Spirulina.
Spinach.
Barley Grass.
Wheat Grass.
Ginkgo.
Lactase.
Lipase.
Protease.
Bromelain.

Go ahead. Google them all, and then Google the ones I didn’t list. You could spend hundreds on the ingredients alone, but Shakeology has them all in one bag.

What if I already have a shake that I like?
E-mail me I’ll let you try a flavor of Shakeology for free. I’ll even send you some recipes! You will immediately taste the difference… Buy your own bag and replace a meal every day for just a week and I guarantee you will feel the difference! Beachbody offers this guarantee as well, so if you decide you don’t like it, they will give you your money back. And remember- Shakeology is a lot more than just protein, and it isn’t full of chemicals like some weight-loss shakes.

What if I can’t afford it?
You can! To afford the first bag might take you some saving, but by replacing a meal each day for the rest of the month, you should save plenty of money on food and dining out, and your next bag will be no problem. You can also pay for your own Shakeology just by referring 3 friends to buy a bag! Ask me for details.

What flavors are there?
I’ll do you one better and give you my ratings of all the flavors:
Chocolate: Sweet but not too sweet. Perfect with peanut butter. Uses real cacao!
Vanilla: Great for recipes. Absolutely versatile and just plain good.
Strawberry: The one taste I had was great! Try it with half a banana.
Greenberry: You either love it or you hate it! Love mine with OJ!
Vegan Chocolate: Less sweet, but still a preferred flavor for many.
Vegan Tropical Strawberry: Less sweet, but I preferred it to regular strawberry!
There are also combo packs of vanilla-chocolate, chocolate-greenberry, and neapolitan!

What do you mean by “recipe?”
Shakeology is a powder that you mix with liquid, and sometimes other ingredients. It’s part of what makes the shakes taste great and also keeps you from getting tired and bored of the same old flavor throughout the month. Here is an example of a recipe; this is actually my “go-to:”
1 scoop of Chocolate Shakeology
1.5 cups of coconut milk
1/2 cup of ice
1 tbsp. peanut butter
It takes 5 minutes to make, tastes like ice cream, keeps me full, and barely costs me $4.

Where can I learn more?
Check out my Shakeology website, or watch this hilarious video of Tony Horton from P90x showing us some of its amazing ingredients! You can also reach out to me if you have any questions!
