Why I Switched

I've been asked a few times why I stopped making green smoothies and started drinking Shakeology instead.  I've been told by a few people recently that they're interested in Shakeology, but want to try making their own for a while first for various reason.

I can't say I blame people.  I was quite possibly the biggest skeptic in the world when it came to Shakeology before I became a health and fitness coach.  In fact, I assumed I would hate it and never drink it again after my first monthly supply ran out.  Boy was I wrong.

Before
I spent quite a bit of time preparing the fruit/greens I was putting in my smoothies.  Most of which was done in advance each Sunday, but some of which had to wait until the morning.

Now
No prep; I just put ingredients in the blender each morning.

Before
Clean up was a beast.  Each morning I was scraping fruit scraps into the trash, wiping down sticky juices, and putting knives, cutting boards, etc. into the sink to be washed later

Now
I put the blender into the sink, fill it with warm water, and a little dish soap to soak until I get home.

Before
I was spending a lot of money on fruits and veggies that were going into smoothie rather than enjoying them the way they were intended.

Now
I spend a little over $3 a day and get to enjoy my fruits and veggies the way I want to.

Before
I was consuming the foods I could afford and find locally.

Now
I am consuming super-foods I wouldn't be able to afford or find locally.

Before
I was consuming a TON of sugar without realizing it.


I'm not saying Shakeology is the answer to everyone's problems and despite the fact that I 100% believe in it - I know it's not for everyone.  I would never push it on someone who genuinely wasn't interested, but I do want people to know what it is and (most importantly) what it isn't.

It is a great way to get your vitamins, nutrients, minerals, super-foods, plus a serving of protein each day.  It isn't a protein shake you can find on the shelves of your local convenience store.
It is a meal replacement shake that helps curb cravings and sustain you.  It isn't a weight loss drink.
