Another Shakeology recipe and a short review

This morning I tried the Greenberry again but had to tone it down a bit with some Chocolate Shakeology too. And I didn't add protein powder this time (thanks to Carl Daikeler who left a comment on my previous Shakeology blog!). This is what I tried this morning and the taste of the Greenberry was so much better (or rather masked):

- 1/2 scoop Greenberry
- 1/2 scoop Chocolate
- 1 banana
- 1 tbs. natural peanut butter
- 1/2 tbs. ground flaxseeds
- 1 cup water and a couple of ice cubes

I like my Shakeology thick and creamy so the banana did a really good job at thicken up the shake. I usually use soy milk in place of water to give it a little froth, but since I'm planning to have my "cheat meal" today, I didn't want the extra 100 calories. Anyway, it was really good this way and next time I think I can add a little more Greenberry. I'm trying to get used to the taste. Need to pick me up some OJ because that helps a ton with the grassy taste.

So far, this is day 5 of enjoying Shakeology as my breakfast replacement, and I LOVE IT! Seriously! I know it's expensive to buy it up front, but $3 -$4 a serving is not bad at all! You can't even buy a meal for the price and I guarantee you won't get the nutrition like you do in Shakeology. Again, I AM NOT A COACH so I'm not trying to "sell" Shakeology... but... I can see a big difference already. Mainly in my energy level. When I get to work, I'm completely awake and I'm so much more efficient! Seriously! I can concentrate so much better and I feel so much better overall. I usually workout in the afternoons, but on the mornings I exercise before work, I feel AMAZING and so much more energized for the rest of the day! This is how Shakeology has made me feel the past three days... without a workout in the morning. And I'm still so shocked at how full one shake will keep me. I drink my shake at 7:30 in the morning and I can last the 3 or 4 hours before my mid-morning snack.

I'm so glad I shelled out the money for it... I can't wait to see what happens after 2 weeks... and a month... and more!
