If you follow me on Facebook then you might have seen me raving about Shakeology and how excited I was when my package arrived yesterday (incase you missed it, you can check out my live video here) As it’s not yet available in the UK (it will be launched in the Autumn) I had a lot of questions about it, so here’s what I know and why I LOVE it so much!
I usually get it delivered while I’m on holiday in Florida but since I’m not going this year (boo) I bit the bullet and ordered some to my home address. I opted for the new Vegan Cafe Latte flavour, think of an iced dreamy creamy mocha that’s actually making your body run more efficiently because of all the goodness that’s in it!
So what actually is Shakeology and how is it different to all the other protein/meal replacement shakes out there? Darin O’lien the creator himself explains:
“A protein shake is one macro-nutrient with some artificial colors and sweeteners, and whatever else they’re putting in there. Then you have Shakeology which has all the macro-nutrients like protein, but you’re also getting an infinite amount of micro-nutrients that are providing the basis for health. Basically protein shakes are only one macro-nutrient and Shakeology is multi dimensional and feeds your body on a cellular level. Each superfood in Shakeology from around the world has hundred of compounds and co-factors – Digestive enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics, anti oxidants, phytonutrients, carotenoids, inherent vitamins and minerals. Health can never be achieved by macro nutrients alone.” says Darin.
So if that’s baffled you even more here’s how I translate it. Basically it’s filled with over 70 Superfoods to help your body run more efficiently, it’s packed full of the good stuff and has none of the crap that other shakes may have. I like to think of it as LIQUID GOLD for my insides! There’s also a short video explaining it a bit more, which helps to understand exactly what it’s made from here
I hope this makes it a bit clearer on why I get so excited about it. As you may or may not know, I’m a bit of a health nut and I wouldn’t use anything that was filled with crap or artificial junk and I definitely wouldn’t give it to my son if I didn’t 100% believe it was the best of the best! (As you can see he loves it too!) I’m all about my body running at it’s optimum level and Shakeology definitely helps with that! (regular pooping 😆)
So roll on Autumn 2017 when it will officially be available to buy in the UK from Beachbody, I can’t wait!! I’ll definitely be stocking up on my favourite flavours, Chocolate & Cafe Latte and possibly my sons favourite, Vanilla!
