So - I've been hearing all about Shakeology for months and months! Now that I have tried it, I hate myself for not getting on the band wagon sooner! When you place an order for Shakeology - you get 2 free workout DVDs, a shaker bottle, free shpping and a full month's worth of recipes on a calendar!
I have tried a different recipe everyday so far - and I'm going to share with you my thoughts/opnions and changes I've noticed so far after only 5 days! Each of these shakes were taken in the morning - 1/2 before my workout, and the other 1/2 after.
Recipe: Chocolate Banana Nutter - Chcolate Shakeology+PB+Banana
The Shake was delicious! The deep chocolate flavor suprised me at first... more of a dark chocolate flavor instead of the imitation flavors that normally added to shakes.
Things I noticed: My energy was thru the roof! I did not get that run down feeling at the end of the afternoon where you feel like you need a coffee or a shot of tequila to make it to 5!
Recipe: PB and J - Chocolate Shakeology + PB + 1/2 c. strawberries
I did not love this flavor combonation to be honest. I like PBJ sandwiches, but with chocolate in the mix as well, I didn't care for it. It was okay and I was able to drink the whole shake, but probably not something I would make again.
Things I noticed: ENERGY galore! My mood seems happy/chipper 24/7 and my hair/skin/nails seem to be more vibrant. Also, I feel less bloated and more slender in my tummy!
Recipe: Mocha Chiller - Chocolate Shakeology + coffee
This was one of my favorites! I used Starbucks VIA for the coffee portion and I typically love the chocolate/coffee mix anyways! LOVE this one :)
Things I noticed: Stilll feeling more energized; also noticeably less cravings.
Recipe: Chcolate Covered Strawberries - Chocolate Shakeology + 1/2 c. strawberries
This recipe was pretty tasty. I think the density of the choclate in the shake overpowers the strawberries a little bit, but you do taste them as a sweet background flavor. I will make this one again for sure.
Things I noticed: Energy, tummy feeling flatter, clear skin!, overall awesomeness!
Recipe: Chcolate Twilight - Chocolate Shakeology + Vanilla Extract
This one was very tasty. I think it would be even better with vanilla almond milk!
Things I noticed: ZERO drowsiness at work, clarity of mind, focused, feeling 'clean' inside and out.
