Pumpkin Pie Shakeology

It is time to bust out the PUMPKIN RECIPES! I was starting to think how I haven’t had pumpkin Shakeology yet this year but as I was making it, I started wondering what container pumpkin actually counts as? So as I was searching for the answer, I found a video that Autumn Calabrese made that explained the containers for pumpkin and I wanted to share that with you. You can watch that video here.

When you eat pumpkin in cubes, that counts as a green container. It would be a vegetable. But if you were to buy the pureed pumpkin, it actually counts as a purple. I get the kind that is all-natural with no preservatives – literally the only ingredient in the can is pumpkin!!

Why does it count this way? Autumn said that when you have a pumpkin and its cubed up, it fits less in the container because there are big chunks and there is space between them. When it’s pureed and it’s more of a liquid consistency, you can fit more into the container and it’s more nutrient-dense, so you use a smaller container. This also explains why peanuts and peanut butter aren’t measured in the same containers – peanuts are an orange and peanut butter is a spoon.

If you followed me way back when, you know I’ve always spoken to the high heavens about how much I love Shakeology and what it does for me. I love pumpkin everything and I remember when I started my transformation that I was OBSESSED with pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. I literally got them three times a week! I never looked at the sugar content or the calories because I just didn’t care. As I got older and had children and my body chemistry changed, I had to start thinking about what I was eating and drinking because it would stick to me and the weight wouldn’t come off as fast.

So I started to look up the nutrition facts of what was in a pumpkin spice latte, and it will literally BLOW YOUR MIND when you see how much crap is in ONE drink from Starbucks. And not even the venti, it’s in the tall or the grande!! As much as I loved them, I had to get rid of my sugar cravings and I wanted to change more than I wanted to stay the same. I decided, as sad as it was, that I was going to throw in the towel on pumpkin spice lattes.

I went looking for alternatives and I found this recipe that I’ve been making for six years! I usually make it with chocolate Shakeology, but the Vegan Vanilla is my new love lately so I decided to try it out with this recipe. Is it the same as drinking a pumpkin spice latte? Definitely not. But this recipe has sweetness, it’s good for you, and as you’re drinking it you know you are not ruining your progress. To me, that makes it worth it!!!

I know some of you just won’t be able to give up your pumpkin spice lattes, and that’s okay!! We all have different priorities. For me, the more I feed my sugar demons, the harder it is for me to conquer them. So I’ve found that this pumpkin Shakeology gives me a good meal, it staves off my cravings for a few hours, it builds up my immune system, and I get that sweet pumpkin flavor.

So to all you sugar addicts out there – we can get through this together!!!

Watermelon Mint Shakeology

I’m going to be honest – I’m not a huge fan of Vanilla Shakeology. You all know I’m a chocolate girl at heart!! But I whipped up this recipe the other day, and I have to say that this is a DELICIOUS and refreshing treat. Perfect for a hot summer day!!

Peanut Butter and Jelly 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!

Chocolate Shakeology Yogurt Treat

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!

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

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!!!

Shamrock Shakeology

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!

Sea Salt Caramel Shakeology

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!

Oatmeal Cookie Shakeology

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!!!

No Bake Shakeology Balls

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.
