❤ Shakeology- (my second love) ❤

Shakeology is now a staple in my diet, its non-negotiable. I ❤ it because the nutritional value in it alone tops every other meal that I could possibly prepare in 2 minutes, while still tasting great. Drinking my shake is normally my breakfast, as I am busy in the morning getting my workout in, getting the kids up, and driving them to school. It has also helped to curve my cravings, which are practically non-existent these days. You may wonder how I prevent myself from getting bored with the same old flavor...its simple, I like to constantly try new Shakeology recipes. These can be found in the Shakeology tab at the top and are broken into the 4 base flavors: Chocolate, Tropical Strawberry, Greenberry, and Vanilla Shakeology. While you may not love every single one, there are bound to be some that taste so good, it feels like you’re being bad.

Shakeology Recipe Tips

~Texture and consistency can be tricky in the beginning if you are new to Shakeology, so its important to play around with the ingredients until you find something you like. For example, I prefer a thick consistency, and my husband prefers more of a runny shake. If you’re looking for more of a smoothie texture, then feel free to add 1/2 to 1 cup of ice to any of the following recipes or even nonfat plain frozen yogurt for a summery treat.
~Also, I also always have at least two different flavors of Shakeology in my kitchen. That way, I don’t get sick of one flavor for the entire month. With the addition of the new Choc/Vanilla Combo pack available on HD, this is easy to do.
~Always try to use the most natural ingredients you can find, including pure maple syrup or various types of milk (unsweetened almond milk is my favorite) without any added sugars. You can also swap out any of the ingredients for something you would enjoy more… 
It’s amazing what you can come up with!
