Snickers Shakeology

People often tell me that Shakeology is too expensive…then shortly after they fill their body with an unhealthy meal that costs more than $4!

Shakeology can cost less than $4 (ask me about getting the best price!)  for a “fast” superfood packed meal that fills me up and leaves me feeling great!  My cravings are gone, I have more energy, and I really feel good!

So, maybe instead of eating out often (like on Valentine’s Day)… why not consider making an investment in your health and eating something delicious every day that will make you feel your best!

I never get tired of Shakeology with all the awesome recipes!  Here’s the one I created today!  IMG_2786 (2).jpg

Apples and DIP!

I LOVE yogurt.  I have been eating cartons since before I could use a spoon!  When Greek yogurt came out I quickly fell in love and switched.  It is easy for me to eat one serving and sometimes two a day.. plus, it helps me to get all of my calcium in!  However, I was also getting a lot of sugar in one serving 😦  I finally cut back on my sugar and switched to plain 0% fat Greek.  I buy the larger tub (so it will last me a couple of days) and love it.  I actually think regular yogurt tastes way to surgery now!

Sometimes I mix a little honey and cinnamon, natural peanut butter and a banana, or fresh berries into my yogurt, but I have to share this recipe because it is SO good!

My Apple Dip

  • 3/4 cup plain 0% fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate Shakeology
  • 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup walnuts

Mix well and use as a dip for apples or eat plain!  Enjoy 🙂
