I love my Shakeology drinks. They’re my go-to breakfast every day and they’re versatile; you can add so much into them for a bonus added flavor. But the best part is that Shakeology isn’t just your everyday store-bought protein powder found in the healthy food aisle; it’s a nutrient-dense superfood protein shake. That means each serving contains important things that our bodies need like antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, mineral and probiotics just to name a few. Supporting digestive health should always be a priority and you’re doing just that when you have your daily dose of Shakeology.
I personally enjoy mine in the morning but I know a lot of others who have it as a snack, lunch or dinner. It’s a great boost for healthy energy, a factor in weight-loss and also a wonderful way to curb those junk-food cravings.
If you’ve read this far, that means I’ve sparked your interest… So find your flavor here! I personally suggest Strawberry.
While I love my Strawberry PBJ Shakeology, I will test the waters with other flavors every now and then. This weekend the sun was out and it wasn’t entirely cold so I thought I would give my Greenberry packet a shot. Now because I’m not familiar with this flavor, I turned to Pinterest for some ideas and found this Orange Banana recipe. That seems like a pretty harmless combo, right? Right! Delicious enough that I’m gonna list the ingredients below.
1 scoop Greenberry Shakeology
1 medium banana
½ cup orange juice
½ cup water
3-4 ice cubes
It’s chicken for dinner for the majority of the week, however I’m trying to cook it various ways to make it more enjoyable. Tonight I threw together what I refer to as a “Superfood Salad.” It consists of carrots, broccoli, red onion, tomatoes and strawberries over a bed of spring mix lettuce. For my dressing, an organic lite italian basil dressing. The best part though is this almond crusted chicken. It is so delicious that I wish I had another pound of chicken in the fridge so I can make some more for dinner tomorrow night!

These chicken tenders taste great in a salad, topped with marinara sauce on a plate of spaghetti or just by themselves dipped in honey mustard
