All Recipes in "Shakeology"
Peanut Butter and Jelly is not only one of my favorite childhood lunches but now it is one of my favorite adult lunches! But with a million added health benefits! Does your peanut butter and jelly give you over 70+ healthy ingredients to increase your energy, decrease cravings, increase regularity and help you lose weight?! I bet NOT!
If you have been dragging your feet then this is your time to try Shakeology!
Sweet Treats! Who doesn’t love a sweet treat every once in awhile! But seriously we don’t want to sabotage our hard work either. So this morning a fellow coach posted this amazing recipe for Shakeology yogurt!
I made it for my kids and they loved it! Seriously if you need something creamy and sweet like ice cream reach for this dessert and save yourself the calories!!! Plus it will keep you full because Greek yogurt is high in protein and the Shakeology gives you nutrition plus berries have lots of antioxidants and it’s an all around good snack!
Oh, how I love Fall. The leaves begin to change, the air outside is crisp, there are pumpkins everywhere, and Football games on weekends. Who doesn’t love Fall? Now that we are just about to the official fall season, kids are headed back to school, Friday night football games and pumpkins everywhere my taste buds start watering!!!
I used to be a huge pumpkin spice latte fan at Starbucks but since really digging into the quality of the food I put in my body I decided to find healthy alternatives to the things I love so I don’t feel deprived! BINGO! This one works great for that craving!!!
At first I thought this whole Shakeology Shamrock shake was a crock of crap! I thought there was no way Shakeology could taste like a milkshake! Oh but let me tell you that it can and it DID! It totally met my expectations!!!
So now I can not only have a Shamrock Shake but I can have 70+ superfood ingredients, the equivalent to 6 salads in one meal, not feel bloated, not kill my diet and still lose weight and have energy!!! Enjoying food is one of those things that I love to do! I enjoy sweets and this is another way I can make it healthy!
I have a slight addiction to a new recipe that I found and am totally in love with.
Lets be honest for a moment. I am completely and totally a SWEETS addict! Just because I have been clean eating for 3 years doesn’t mean I don’t want to pull a U-turn into the nearest bakery or eat a donut when I see one! I am just wired to love a sweet treat! But, like any other woman out there sweet treats don’t like my hips or my stomach! So I have to find ways to feel like I get the sweet fix without the crappy, calorie loaded, body bloating ingredients. Also, it has to taste decadent, it cannot be fake or imitation. The real deal is the way to go! So when I cam across Shakeology I won’t lie, I was skeptical that it was really truly going to curb my cravings. Much to my surprise it did that and more!
Depending on the mood I am in, the type of drink I want, I can tweak Shakeology to meet my needs.
If I want a milkshake then I make my shake in a blender with ice, peanut butter a banana, almond milk and water for thickness.
If I want it like a chocolate milk then I shake it up, use water and almond milk and no ice! It is all a personal preference but you can work with it to find what fits you best! There is no right or wrong way to make Shakeology. The only exception is that you cannot heat it because it loses the good properties!
So a little bit of salty and a little sweat is the perfect combination to my morning breakfast!
Lets just be honest! Who wouldn’t want to eat cookies for breakfast?!?! I have by far the BIGGEST sweet tooth ever! I could eat donuts, cookies, cakes and pastries at any time of the day! It still takes hard work and dedication to not want to eat it all.
In the past I would eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast or grab a junk filled protein bar or a sub out and about but not the new me!
The old me would of crashed and burned an hour later because my blood sugar would of dipped to low and I would of been holding my eyes open with tooth picks. But the new me, is full of energy because I had a great breakfast that was packed with all the good stuff my body needs to stay hydrated, healthy and nutritious.
I of course have that sweet food tendency so when I saw this recipe I couldn’t pass it up! You have to try it It’s seriously going in rotation along with the Salted caramel!!!
Here at the Mitro house we were craving something sweet! The boys wanted to eat ice cream and chips and I wanted chocolate. So I distracted them from the pantry with my bright idea to let them help me cook.
Much to my surprise they were awesome little assistants and we whipped up these tasty little morsels that are killing the sweet craving, are keeping us full, giving us nutrition and keeping us all on track. So if you find yourself needing something sweet, give this a go! Just another reason why Shakeology ROCKS.
Breakfast is served in the Mitro’s before we head out to our basketball games this morning! You can also make this with Cafe Latte Shakeology as well. I buy the caramel extract at Walmart but if you can’t find it you can easily get it on Amazon.com. I hope you enjoy!
