I Have Chocolate for Breakfast

Yep, that's right. Pretty much every day for the past few months, I have enjoyed chocolate for breakfast. And I have lost weight and gotten myself back into a fit, healthy and happy place.

How is this possible? Well, I discovered Shakeology. It's dubbed "The Healthiest Meal of the Day," and now I don't go a day without it! Not only do I get my daily chocolate fix, it also helped me get squash those intense junk food cravings I experienced when I first started the 21 Day Fix challenge. I went from Googling whether or not it was a scam to being completely enamored with it once I gave it a shot. I truly believe it was and continues to be a key part to my success in my healthy lifestyle and habits.

So what's in Shakeology? It's basically a protein shake with all kinds of superfoods for a complete nutritional powerhouse - as they sum it up, it's your daily dose of dense nutrition. It has a whole host of benefits, from aiding in digestion to making your skin glow and boosting your energy. No artificial sweeteners in it, either - a big reason why I like it. Well, that and it takes about 5 minutes to make and reminds me of a Wendy's Frosty. Except it's good for me!

The texture and flavor is really pleasant, unlike other protein powders I have tried that I find either too saccharine or chalky. And it's full of all kinds of goodness, too - check out everything you get! It takes care of all of those expensive vitamins and supplements and wraps them up in one delicious package.

One of the first things I always hear is how it is so expensive. I won't deny, yes it is. You pay for quality, don't you? (who's reading this on a top-of-the-line iPhone that you pay dearly for usage of each month without blinking??) When it comes down to it, it's about $4 a serving. We use it as a meal replacement, so it's replacing other food we are not buying. Also, there's the bonus savings we enjoy of not buying all that crappy junk food we didn't need in the first place. Medical bills are a lot more expensive, and this helps motivate me to eat healthy and gives me the energy to stay active. Win win in my book!

For my gluten-free people out there, it is made with gluten-free ingredients. However, it is not certified - here is their statement on the gluten-free status of the product. To summarize, it's manufactured in a shared facility that follows strict standards to prevent cross contamination. I personally have never had a reaction, and I am highly sensitive. I easily run more risk eating at a restaurant than drinking Shakeology.

Shakeology comes in a variety of flavors, including chocolate, vanilla and strawberry, plus two vegan options that are made with plant-based protein. There are also new boosts designed to take your shake to the next level! Not quite ready to commit to a flavor? Go for the sampler pack!

There's a Bottom of the Bag money-back guarantee on Shakeology, so you've got nothing to lose but that extra weight! If you have any questions, let me know in the comments or contact me at
