For over two years now, a close girlfriend of mine has been begging me to try Shakeology. Having done network marketing and having a horrible experience before, I refused. I vowed to never sell anything again unless I believed in it 100%. Besides, I had my super food shakes that I loved. Sure, they’re pricey and a bit time consuming to make but I feel amazing and you can’t put a price on that.
Finally, I caved. I read the label and was a bit shocked to see the Tropical Strawberry shakes were vegan with sprouted brown rice protein, sprouted flax, chlorella, acai, green tea, wheat grass, chia seeds, maca and goji berries among many other superstar ingredients that my shakes didn’t have. Yes, my heart skipped a beat, but I’m not gonna lie. I wanted to hate it. I really wanted to hate it and go back to my time-consuming superfood shakes with an ego-driven “I told you so.” (Being stubborn and a creature-of-habit are traits I'm working on.) Needless to say, I threw the contents of the packet in the blender with some organic frozen berries, and some almond milk.
I took a sip.
It was divine.
I fell in love.
I offered to buy the rest of my friend's packets off her. I found my superfood crack AND my kids loved it. No better feeling in the world than to watch my kids drinking the superfoods their little bodies need more than ever.
At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different antioxidants, digestive enzymes, and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and other life-threatening issues. Amazing. I know.
Please keep in mind, I’m very careful about the shakes and proteins I feed my family. In case you didn’t know, most protein powders are toxic. The process of making protein powders often requires extremely high heat which completely manipulates the proteins, making them unrecognizable to our bodies. Yes, sprouted is the way to go, but nearly impossible to find.
Yes, I’ve replaced all these ingredients on the left with the little packet on the right. Although it’s hard for me to admit, Shakeology contains even more nutrients and super foods than I was using in my shakes AND it’s more affordable. See that little bottle of phytoplankton? $60. The Chlorella? $45. The sprouted protein mix? $39. Okay, I have to stop. I’m pissing myself off for being stubborn and not trying Shakeology sooner. It really is a pioneer for the nutritionally dense shakes we need to see on the market.
No, I’m not going to be an annoying sales person. No, I’m not going to be posting on FB every five minutes about how amazing these shakes are. Yes, I love them. I also decided to sell them on my site because I received a 20% discount once I signed up to be a distributor. I am really excited about this product and wanted to share it with you!
If you’re interested in trying them, they come with a 30-day money back guarantee. Even if your bag is completely empty! How cool is that? If you want to be a coach yourself, this is an amazing opportunity to help those your love get healthy. (Dad, I’m coming after you with these in hand.)
