I often get asked about 'those shakes' that I drink - so I thought I'd do a post about what Shakeology is and why I LOVE it.

So first things first - I am a LAZY person. I am in a constant battle against that fact, but it's the truth. Anything that helps me maintain a healthy lifestyle with minimal effort, I'm into. I can make a shake in less than 2 minutes in the morning, and I can take packets on the go and make it while traveling (which I do a lot of lately). I stay pretty busy, so knowing that I had at least one meal that is packed with nutrients is important to me.

When I started my challenge group in December, I was pretty skeptical about drinking Shakeology. I thought I'd get sick of it, thought I wouldn't like the taste, and didn't really see the point in drinking it. But it was part of the requirements, and I knew my coach wouldn't lead me astray, since she'd been through what I was going through. Now, I never miss a day. I actually think of Shakeology as my reward for finishing a workout every morning. 

Positive side effects:
1. Increase in energy
2. My skin cleared up (probably a side effect of clean eating as well)
3. Keeps me full for 2-3 hours (due to the carb to protein ratio - it's NOT just a protein shake)
4. Improved digestion
5. Curbs cravings for sweets

What is Shakeology?
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 anti-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.

Flavor Review
I started out with Vanilla because I thought it would be the most versatile for recipes, and I stand by that decision. Vanilla is my main flavor: I love it plain with water or almond milk, and I love making recipes with it as well. I tried the Chocolate and Strawberry recently, and I have to admit I've been cheating on Vanilla with Chocolate! I'll be honest with you, I don't love Strawberry. I know a lot of people were crazy excited when that flavor was introduced earlier this year, and they really love it. For me, it's not a favorite, but I have made a couple recipes with it that I liked.
