 Shake of the day!- Peanut Butter Banana “Milkshake”

hey Everyone,  Sorry for the lack of food prep check in this week.  I am out of town on spring break and enjoying the leisure of actually preparing meals when I need them.  Don’t worry, I will be back on the food prep this week and will be sharing all of the details. During my time off from food prep I have also had the time to be a bit more creative with my daily shakes.  I had this one today and I am in LOVE.  It was so yummy that I just had to share it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 serving of vanilla Shakeology
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.
  2. Serve and ENJOY!!

I am not joking when I say I totally felt like I was cheating with this one.  It was so delicious!!

Why Shakeology works for me

I have always been very skeptical when it comes to Shakeology.  Maybe it is the cheapskate in side of me saying NO!, but I never really wanted to take a chance and try it.  Finally after much thought, and reading a very inspiring blog I decided to give it a try.  After just 4 days of using it, I was a believer

While many people do use Shakeology to lose weight, I can’t say whether or not it has helped me or not in that aspect. Primary reason being I don’t weigh myself. I did not start using Shakeology to lose weight. I don’t share much about this because, well its king of gross but my whole life (practically) I have suffered from chronic constipation. It has gotten so bad sometimes that I have even had to go to the hospital. I have tried countless remedies (both prescription and over the counter), visited countless specialists (both in the US and in Mexico), and tried countless diet changes but I have never found anything that helps enough to continue using it. Since the day after starting Shakeology, I have officially had a BM every day. YAY!!! While this will not seem like a big thing for some people, this is a huge improvement from my once or twice a week, many times laxative induced, struggles.

To do a little experiment, I skipped my Shakeology for a couple of days.  For the days following this I had no BM’s, and my normal gas and bloating returned. This is why after just a week, I am completely sold on Shakeology and really can’t (or at least don’t want to) imagine my life without it.  Shakeology has been completely life changing for me!!

Food Prep and Meal Plan for the week of March 16

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey everyone, if you are reading this you will proubably think I am stuck in a rut.  Well the truth is, I have found a meal plan I am really happy with. That is why this weeks prep is so similar to last weeks

In order to make meal prep as painless as possible I try to have all of my meats cooking at once.  This saves time.  I also fix my eggs in batches and divide it to save time.  When it comes to steaming my veggies I always  have microwave steam bags like these on hand because they make steaming veggies SO easy.

I usually eat 6 meals a day and I prep for 4 of those meals.  This week here is a general snapshot of what I will be eating.  Keep in mind, this is set for my body to help reach my goals.

Meal 1- (after fasted cardio) Shakeology with a tbsp of peanut butter, and 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Meal 2- Eggs with salsa

Meal 3, Meal 4 – one of my prepared meats with veggies

Meal 5- High Protein. peanut butter apple parfait (Click HERE for recipe)

Meal 6- Low Carb Brownie with 1 tbsp of Peanut butter (Click HERE for recipe)

Post workout- shake
