Why do I love Shakeology? Because I hate breakfast. It’s not that I hate breakfast, it’s that I have a really hard time eating soon after waking up. Usually it’s 3 or 4 hours later that I finally get hungry and can eat, BUT the shake is super easy to make and drink within a half hour of waking up, and a couple hours later, when it’s time to eat again, I can eat my oatmeal and I haven’t missed a meal. Not eating enough makes it hard to get healthy and lose weight because it slows down your metabolism, sending your body into starvation mode. Drinking Shakeology in the morning fills me up like breakfast, but it isn’t heavy or hard to eat like breakfast can be. I get my metabolism going, so I eat enough during the day, and I’m energized because I’m fueling my body properly. I just drink it with about 10oz of almond/coconut milk, shaken in my BlenderBottle shaker cup. There are lots of recipes available to mix it in a blender (too long in there and it will start to thicken, like beating cream makes whipped cream) with ice and other yummy stuff added to it. I haven’t tried any of those, mainly because I think it’s good just in the shaker cup (I guess I’m hardcore like that lol), I’m lazy and the shaker is one less dish to wash, and I broke the lid to my blender and need a new one. I’ve added cooled down coffee to my chocolate shake for a delicious and healthy mocha “frappaccino” and I’ve also added cooled chai tea, and some So Delicious Pumpkin Spice non-dairy goodness to it too. The more milk you add to it, the thicker and creamer it will be. You can use 1/2 milk and 1/2 water for a thinner shake.
I think that’s all my rambling for now. I just wanted to put some thoughts down in one place 😉
