Why Shakeology?


So, I have received quite a few inquiries regarding Shakeology. People want to know what it's done for me. People want to know what the difference is between Shakeology and a protein drink. People want to know if it tastes good. People want to know why it's so expensive.

If you are one of the many people who is looking for answers to these questions, this post is for you!

I will begin by sharing a short list of physical improvements I noticed after I started replacing a meal a day with Shakeology:

1. Increased energy

2. Balanced out moods during peri menopause

3. Strengthened fingernails

4. Changed the health of my hair for the better and increased the rate of growth.

5. Aided in weight loss

6. Decreased hot flashes by providing adrenal support

7. Strengthened my immune system

8. Healthier skin

9. Significantly curbed sugar cravings

Our daughter, who was struggling with digestive issues created this little visual to communicate how much better she felt once she started replacing one meal with Shakeology. I didn't ask her to do this. I found her working on it one morning on her own.


I want to make it clear that Shakeology is not a protein drink, although it has an excellent protein to carb ratio. It is a full meal replacement, loaded with over 70 amazing all natural (technically organic, but not certified in order to keep cost down) ingredients. It is sweetened with the natural sugars found in the fruit it includes and with all natural, safe, Stevia. It is gluten free. There are six flavors to choose from and two of those are vegan for those who cannot or wish not to incorporate dairy into their diets. As far as the cost of Shakeology's about a $4.00 to $5.00 a day investment, depending on what recipes you choose to use for blending it. It is a complete meal when you consider the money you spend on a coffee drink, soda, fast food stop's not really that expensive. It's an investment into your health, not just a palate pleaser or a fun drink. It's pure nutrition, that feeds your body to the core.

Check out this short videos that explain a little bit about the ingredients in Shakeology:

Shakeology The Breakthrough

One of our favorite "desserts" which is loaded with incredible nutrition and super delicious, is Raw Fudge. Shakeology can be enjoyed in more than one form and this is one of those forms.


Single Serving Raw Fudge Clean Eating Style works with Paleo or Vegan as well:

1 Tablespoon raw almond butter

1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

1 teaspoon Shakeology

1 teaspoon pure maple syrup

1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch fine sea salt (I prefer Himalayan)

Serves one


In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Adjust flavor to taste, if necessary. Transfer into a small bowl or container and freeze until firm. Enjoy!

Our favorite flavor is chocolate, but there are six flavors to choose from and another one I love is vanilla. Shakeology is never boring. I blend it using some of my favorite recipes for a full meal shake, in my Vitamix (blender) and it's like enjoying dessert for a meal each day....a delicious, nutritious "milk" shake. Yum! It's perfect for any meal of the day and a great way to replenish muscles after a workout.


Shakeology and a healthy diet, with exercise......does a body good!
