I often get asked what Shakeology is, why do I drink it, and how it differs from other shakes. Shakeology is a nutrient dense whole food supplement that I have been drinking every day for the past year. Some people think that Shakeology is simply another over-priced protein shake or another meal replacement full of ingredients that you can’t pronounce. And wouldn’t it be better to get it all from real food?
Here’s the scoop.
Unlike most “healthy shakes” on the market, Shakeology is made form minimally processed whole foods. The ingredients are sun-dried, dehydrated at low temperatures or freeze-dried all to retain the as many nutrients as possible. It does not include any artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, soy or high fructose corn syrup. The vitamins and minerals are derived from actual food, not synthetics or isolates. That means they can work in your body more effectively as whole foods do. As true as it is that we should be getting our nutrients from the natural food source the truth is the produce we get at the grocery store is depleted of nutrients for a variety of reasons and to get the amount of nutrients we actually need would require that we eat huge quantities. Watch this short video and see what I mean.
As much as I try to eat healthily it sometimes can be a challenge. Sometimes there just isn’t time. On busy days, rushing from school to school and back home to teach leaves me with time for only a quick snack before the next student. Some days it’s rushing off to a rehearsal after a full day. Then there are days that I would just love to get my chocolate fix without ruining my healthy eating gains. Travelling can also present a big problem. Stuck in a small town adjudicating with no nearby grocery stores and only a greasy spoon to eat in is not a recipe for healthy eating.
Those are just a few of the reasons I am thankful to have Shakeology as part of my daily healthy eating repertoire. It also reduces cravings for junk food, helps with my digestion and has improved my energy. So, NO, Shakeology is not just another protein supplement or meal replacement shake.
Shakeology has a great 30-day bottom of the bag money back guarantee. Even so, not everyone wants to make that initial investment without a test run. For those who aren’t ready for that, great news! There are 5 and 7 day sample packs available to try out all the flavors!
