This morning after my workout and my wonderful fruit smoothie, I was feeling tired and a little cranky. I couldn’t figure out what it was. I wanted to feel good and have some fun with the kids, but just wasn’t feeling it. Late in the afternoon I was looking for a snack and realized I had not had my Shakeology yet. I mixed the Vegan Chocolate up with some cashew milk, peanut butter vanilla, ice and water. I enjoyed drinking it, as I always do, especially when it has peanut butter and vanilla extract in it. What surprised me is how I felt. I was feeling good again. I soon grabbed the Frisbee and played with my kids and some of the neighbor kids. It was good fun running around and playing.
I started asking myself, “What is in this that would make me feel better.” Maybe it is something illegal. 🙂 I have experienced a reduction in cravings, and a better ability to control my portion of food, but what is it? So I looked at some more information. I found that Shakeology ” is made from fruits, veggies, antioxidants, probiotics and protein. It’s all natural; no caffeine; no artificial flavors or sweeteners; no GMO’s. There is even a shot of wheat grass in every serving. It’s basically 70+ all natural sources of fuel designed for your body, and if you read the label you’ll actually recognize the ingredients! (Quinoa, spinach, blueberries, wheat grass, flax, chia seeds, and acai berry…).” I have read the ingredients. There are some I do not recognize. One was Reishi. I found on the web that Reishi is a mushroom and:
- It is non-toxic and can be taken daily without producing any side effects.
- When it is taken regularly, it can restore the body to its natural state, enabling all organs to function normally.
- Immune modulator – regulates and fine tunes the immune system.
How’s that for an ingredient? This could be the reason I felt better. Maybe my organs weren’t functioning normally. I know I wasn’t feeling like myself.
It could have been the antioxidants and the probiotics. There is a lot in there, so I’m not sure. I’m just glad I have it. From now on, I must drink it in the mornings.
I am selling Shakeology. I am doing it because it in amazing stuff and the more I learn about it, the more I want others to try it. A sampler can be purchased here. This super sampler has all six flavors. If you are a vegan, or can’t do whey for any number of reasons check out the vegan taste sampler. The vegan taste sampler has two of each vegan flavor. I like both, but I really like the chocolate.
Contact me if you want more information. This is really great stuff.
