Shakeology: Its a crazy good DEAL!

Ok, let’s be real for a minute.
When people ask me what I do or what fills up that little Shaker cup or my coffee mug they are USUALLY interested in giving it a try.

But…

Then they hear the cost and they say – “I can’t afford that, I….” and before you know it they are already convinced there is no way it can work!

Trust me – I GET IT!!!! I’ve been there…and I used to think it was crazy expensive too…until I realized what all you’re getting and then it all made sense!!! You get what you pay for!!!

Let’s clarify something real quick…Shakeology is NOT a “protein shake”. Shakeology IS a meal replacement that contains some of the greatest nutrient dense superfoods in the world carefully formulated to give your body LIFE enhancing potential for a healthier mind, body and a stronger performing LIFE. It is a MEAL – it REPLACES one meal and it adds life to your life. Who wouldn’t want in on this???

Let’s rewind…

I joined my first challenge group a year into my Stay at Home Mom (SAHM) life. It was February and I had left my career in public accounting the April prior. It was hard enough for me to “splurge” on the challenge pack but I really wanted a change so I went with it. I ordered and immediately cancelled the auto shipments. Again, there was NO WAY I could afford this monthly. But I also committed to myself. I had made the investment in the challenge pack and I was investing in ME. I purchased the 21-day fix and told myself I would drink these little shakes for 21 days, I would follow the plan and I would workout.

My 21-day fix results – Round 1 – never missed a shakeo!!

Guess what???? I GOT RESULTS – In just 3 short weeks….It actually worked!

Now the hard part came…I wanted another bag of the Shakeology but how????

Here’s what I did:

1) First, I signed up as a coach. Well – a discount coach – but it was the same process – I mean – who doesn’t want to save $$$. This had a big appeal and since I had already purchased a challenge pack there was no sign up fee and if I did nothing else, I would at least be saving $15/month. SWEET!

2) I stopped my prescription prenatal vitamin that was costing me $30/month.

I was nursing my 9 month old at the time and after talking to my doctor the vitamins and minerals found in my prenatal were also in Shakeology! The only thing I had to add was a separate DHA supplement!!! WINNING!!!! As always – if you’re pregnant or nursing you should talk to your doctor first. But then again you should actually consider EVERYTHING you put into your body – Shakeology included – but also that cookie, the pizza, the coffee mocha frap, the fast food – etc.. You should think about EVERYTHING you’re eating. I know when I did I quickly realized you can’t get the all natural, non-GMO nutrition found in Shakeology in other foods and personally I couldn’t think of a better food to fuel my body with and my family!!!

I was actually giving my little one MORE nutrition that before! I wonder if I could quantify the amount of money saved from not having to go to the doctor – from establishing healthy nutrition habits in my young one?!?! Ok – tangent over – back to it…

3) I was able to completely STOP by Chron’s Disease medicine – savings – $60/month. After taking medicine for nearly 7 years I started noticing very positive changes to my digestive system. I reduced my dosage on my own and after 4 months of my daily dense superfood Shakeology, regular exercise, and making that transition to clean eating…I was confident I didn’t need it anymore! I made an appointment with my GI specialist and in August got the official words to stop all medication! If nothing else – that aspect alone is enough for me to ensure this lifestyle is simply that MY LIFE!

4) We stopped eating out!!!

For almost the first 6 months – we truly just didn’t eat out! Once we made the investment in the Shakeology and investment in our own health we realized we could cook the foods we liked in the portions our bodies needed for a fraction of the cost. We ditched the pizza and wings Friday night ritual and the 1x/week dinner out. I’ll estimate that by cooking dinner in vs. ordering out 1x a week and eating dinner out 1x a week our family of four saved at least $40/week, of that my portion was at least $15…and I actually think this is a super low ball park number!!! We never messed around when we would go out – there was always an app and always a dessert so this became a huge saver for us! We also found that shakeology shaken up on the road makes for the healthiest and most convenient fast food EVER!!!

Rough guess – $60/month for myself – $120/month for my family 

So as you can see – from the compound effect of the changes we made – while we were spending an additional $115 on one bag of Shakeology – I was saving $165!!! And we didn’t even address that this replaced my prior unhealthy not all natural oatmeal packet breakfast I used to eat or the ice cream we would frequently grab from Dairy Queen 🙂

And all the while this is saving me money, helping me feel better and allowing me to be the BEST mom/wife possible…I started to inspire others along the way. Those closest to me – aka – my ENTIRE FAMILY!

Shamrock Shakeology

With Shakeology’s 6th birthday yesterday combined with St. Patty’s day today – I had to share this amazing recipe we made last night to celebrate the combination of the two (see comments below!)

I’m sure you’ve all heard of Shamrock shakes – well here is Shamrock Shakeology! But first, just in case you’re not familiar or haven’t had the opportunity to fuel up with this incredible superfood, here’s a few fun facts about Shakeology:

#1 You can switch your flavor each month (which is perfect if you are like me and like a little variety, since we have so many flavors (including vegan) to accommodate everyone’s taste buds AND allergies to dairy, soy, gluten!

#2 You get your money back if you aren’t satisfied within 30 days (yup, seriously, enjoy for 30 days but if you’re not happy or it doesn’t meet your expectations – RETURN it – its RISK FREE!) So why not toss those skeptical thoughts aside!!!

#3 You aren’t adding to your budget but rather REPLACING what you already spend on 30 meals each month (Trust me – I didn’t think I could afford it either at first but….now we save money by drinking it!)
…oh and my preferred customers get it for 25% off

#4 It has helped ME get off my Chron’s disease medicine (after 7 long years of daily use) and it even replaced my prenatal vitamin when I was nursing (approved by my doctor!) – which saved me even MORE money each month!

#5 Promotes weight loss, Improves Digestion, Curbs Cravings, takes about 2 minutes to blend as pretty much 99.9% of us are constantly busy and “never have time”!

So, for the healthiest meal of the day, which has not only helped myself reach new goals but also my family, friends, and new friends, and to be able to call this part of my “business”, I love being able to share what it’s done for me! I can’t imagine how different my life would be if I hadn’t “give it a TRY” and I accredit my continued success to Shakeology – because of how it has made me FEEL and the energy it provides me!!!

Turn that huge indulgence into the healthiest meal of YOUR day!

THERE’S POWER IN NUMBERS

Pineapple Delight & Watermelon Refresher

PINEAPPLE DELIGHT & WATERMELON REFRESHER

I was excited to try some new Greenberry shakeo recipes when my sister was visiting this past weekend!

They look the same but are a bit different:

 

greenberry shakeos

Pineapple Delight   

1 scoop Greenberry Shakeology

1/2 cup pineapple

10 oz ice

6 oz almond milk

4 oz water

1/4 frozen banana (optional)

1/2 cup green yogurt (optional)

Personally, I love the consistency added with a frozen banana…but that’s also more sugar and more calories – so try it both ways and see which one you like better! If you’re not watching those calories too closely the additional green yogurt can really add a nice touch with some additional protein too! 
 
Watermelon Refresher

1 scoop Greenberry Shakeology

1 cup watermelon

10 oz ice

6 oz almond milk

1/2 cup green yogurt (optional)

The watermelon really adds some liquid to the drink so be sure to watch how much milk you add…and you can always add more ice if you want it to be thicker!
 
I listed the green yogurt as optional because it can really add in some extra calories if you’re trying to be careful but it also adds in some additional protein – so it just depends on what your goals are!
