Strawberry Mango Shakeology

I’ve been using Shakeology for over 4 years now since the start of my fitness journey.  I will say, I have found my flavor and consistency that I love, so I keep with that pretty much every day.

But I need to switch things up! Try something new and keep things fresh!!

Today I used my Vanilla Shakeology  (1 scoop), added 1/2 cup frozen mango (from Aldi) and 1/2 cup fresh strawberries with 6 oz water. I blended in my ninja with 4 ice cubes and whipped that bad boy up!

Chunky Monkey Shakeology

Shakeology recipes, Chocolate Shakeology recipes, Healthy meal replacement shakes, clean eating recipes, Chunky monkey shakeology, healthy dessert recipes, superfood shakes, Deidra Penrose, almond milk, banana recipes, natural peanut butter recipes

OK another FAV Shakeology recipe of mine!!!

I usually drink my Shakeology post workout to re-fuel my body and repair my muscles after they have been broken down with my workout. If you want to drink your superfood shake another time, I prefer scheduling it in your day with a meal you either have trouble getting in (many forget breakfast), or if you usually eat poor at a certain meal.  It is full of vitamins and minerals, and plenty more natural ingredients (click on the link to see over +70 superfoods and how they will benefit your body and health)!

What I love about Shakeology is its not just a protein shake you can pick up at GNC or Walmart (although many stores try to mimic) and you can do more than just make a shake out of it!! I love making desserts, treat, and energy bars too that are nutritious and clean!!

Staying on Track over the Holiday Weekend!

How in the heck do you stay on track with your nutrition, especially over the holidays?!?! It’s 4th of July weekend and I know people are about partying, food, and alcohol! But… it doesn’t necessarily have to be unhealthy!! You can still have fun and be clean about your choices of food and drinks!!

I’m leaving for vacation tonight once kids are in bed and I am prepping some food now to take to South Carolina for some get togethers with our team and family!! I want to show you that it’s still possible to travel, go to parties, and be healthy all at the same time!! Sounds like a lot of work huh? Lol

For the road- 

It’s easy to say “Oh, I don’t have anything with me, lets stop at a fast food restaurant.” Ummm or NOT!! It’s called, plan and prepare my friends!! It’s easier to plan and have it all with you than to stop, waste time, money, and your body!! Treat your body as a temple, its the only place to live!!

So here are some foods I have prepared for the road:

  • Almonds
  • Chicken
  • String Cheese
  • Fresh blackberries and raspberries
  • Bananas
  • Rice Cakes
  • Shakeology
  • Water— TONS of it!! You can always stop to pee if you need to!

food travel

Whats really cool, is you don’t have to use the excuse that you don’t want to take chicken because you don’t have a fridge… USE A COOLER with ice!! That simple guys!!! How bad do you want it?!?!

Some foods we will have-

It almost looks to good to even believe its healthy right?!? Guess what? There are alternatives to everything so you can make your food healthy!! It’s all about trial and error until you find what works for you!!

I found this recipe from a friend and it was simply amazing!!

Ingredients:

  • 2 8 oz packages of light cream cheese (be sure its at room temperature)
  • 2 8 oz Greek Yogurt (I used one 8 oz of vanilla and 1 8 oz plain)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees
  2. Mix all ingredients together using a hand mixer. Make sure filling is smooth
  3. Add filling to 8 inch pie pan.  If you want to get a little unhealthy, you can make your own crust by using low fat graham crackers crushed (1.5 cups) with 1 tbsp I can’t believe its not butter or even better… I used 1.5 cups of special K cereal crushed with I can’t believe its not butter. Be sure its completely flat onto pie pan.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes at 250.
  5. Then turn up to 325 and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Then turn back down to 250 and cook for 20 more minutes. Total cook time is 70 minutes.
  7. Let cook and ENJOY!!

Clean Chocolate Shakeology Lava Cake

Ok, so who doesn’t love desserts??? I know my peanut butter and chocolate addiction can get very bad!! When I was younger, I would literally eat Reese cups DAILY!!! Pathetic, but fortunately I have found my chocolate replacement… SHAKEOLOGY!! This has not just helped me get my veggies in since I despised them, gave me the nutrients I need, but has helped my cravings in so many ways!! 

I am not here to throw out another “diet shake”, “weight loss shake”, or “protein shake” because it is NONE of those! You must eat clean!! This is simply a Health Shake that is giving you more nutrition than you get from you typical every day meals.. give you a meal with a good protein to carb ratio that will keep you fuller longer.

Alright, so lets get to the chase… I know you are not suppose to heat Shakeology (it will cause it to lose its nutritional value), BUT when you are ready to binge on a nice 1000 calorie desert, Im all about heating this bad boy up and making it into a chocolate lava cake!!
