What do you eat when you are in a pinch for time?
Does it fuel your body well? After you eat it, do you feel guilty, ashamed, and disappointed? Or do you feel totally awesome?
Can you relate to this…
I love my green smoothies (check out our green smoothie recipes here), and I love cooking healthy and nutritious meals (check out our recipes here), but I do not have time to make 3 wholesome meals a day. Or, I guess it would be more accurate to say, I choose not to prioritize making 3 meals a day when I have the option of shaking one of my meals and having the time to do more in my waking hours.
For me, drinking Shakeology has so many benefits!
Of course you are saying that… Before I go into the details of why I love it, the first question I want to answer is do I talk about Shakeology because I sell it, or do I sell is because I talk about it.
Shakeology on TrainingWorkoutVideo.com
We sell Shakeology because it solves a problem that we were facing. How do we fuel the body well without having to spend too many hours a day cooking.
An apple, a small handful of raw almonds, a few stalks of celery. Those are all terrific solutions, and we do recommend them and use them as snacks. While they make great snacks, when we found Shakeology, we knew we had a meal alternative.
Why do we believe in it? To understand how Shakeology ended up with such a super-star line up of superfoods, it is probably helpful to share a little bit about the company that makes Shakeology. Beachbody’s CEO is married to a woman who believes in the power of food. So, when you bring together the financial power of a CEO of a large company and the heart of a woman that understands the importance of whole food ingredients, you get a product that has not been compromised. And then, they brought in ingredient-hunter Darin Olien to round out the team. I raise a glass of blended greens to toast them for bringing this product to market!
Top 5 Benefits of Drinking Shakeology Daily
#1 Shakeology is Nutrient Dense
And it is not just about what is in Shakeology, it’s the fact that the nutrients come from the whole foods ingredients and they are in a format that our human vehicles can easily assimilate*. Plus, it is delicious!
Convenience is so critical for us. It is so cool to be able to nourish our bodies on the go with food that fulfills and energizes.
#3 Curbs Craving
If you read my “No Desserts” experiment, you know that I have an ongoing dance with my affinity for chocolate chip cookies. Shakeology is a great tool in my toolbelt for curbing cravings in a healthy and satiating way.
#4 Saves Money
Shakeology costs less than most lunches or dinners. Plus, for me, when I eat less fueling fast food options, I get sluggish and less productive. Less productive means I get less done at work. So, it’s important to me to fuel well and stay healthy and productive. Do you notice that food impacts your energy and productivity level? Added bonus: I haven’t been sick one time since I started drinking Shakeology every day (which was a little over a year ago); which means no $ spent on sick visits.
#5 The care that goes into Shakeology’s ingredients
The care that goes into the Shakeology ingredients, in terms of both nutrients as well as the suppliers, is another reason we love Shakeology. Beachbody invested significant time and testing in finding the best ingredients and the best source for those ingredients. And I love that they pay the suppliers using Fair trade practices, which means that we are not only getting the personal benefits to our own health when we drink Shakeology, we are also contributing to an economy that farmers get paid a fair wage for their efforts to produce superior products.
This benefit didn’t make it into the top 5 benefits of drinking Shakeology because FueltheBodyWell is about optimizing our human vehicles (not specifically looking good a certain way). But even if that is not the focus, it is nice to feel like you look great. And looking fit is a natural outcome of making healthy choices.
Studies show that people who eat breakfast every day are less likely to gain weight. And fueling up with a nutrient dense meal like Shakeology helps you feel full and reduces the tendency to snack throughout the day.*
