21 Day Fix Recipes

Homemade Chicken soup!

So, I haven’t posted on my blog recently…and that sucks. I feel like a bad person and feel like I should interact with you awesome folk that actually take time to read and listen to what I say, haha. My daughter’s school called today and told me to pick her up because she had a fever of 101.4…when she got home, she asked, “mama, can you make you chicken soup because everything hurts”? and I said OF COURSE!

My chicken soup is probably so much different than what typical soup should be – I attest that to my awesome ancestors before me. But, it’s pretty frickin great. It’s just a little Colombian spin on it.

I use wholesome ingredients to make sure my soup is 21 day fix approved, or even if it need alterations, thats okay, too.

I had a few things left over produce wise from the week before that I needed to use up so soup worked out well. I usually boil a whole chicken on the stove with my spices and herbs and then cook the veggies separately, but because I also have been feeling under the weather, and I didn’t have a whole chicken, just boneless skinless chicken breasts, I threw everything in the crock pot. Way easier for me and my husband was able to serve the kiddos while I napped on the couch (thanks, love!) It was a huge hit!

Ingredients:
2-4lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1c frozen peas
3 green oninions, chopped
Cilantro (a handful – you can omit this, but it really helps bring out the Colombian flavor – but I LOVE cilantro, so if you’re not a fan, no worries)
2 russet potatoes, cubed
1/2 bag (approx) baby carrots (I’m sure cutting up whole carrots would be fine, we just had a ton of baby carrots left over and I didn’t cut them up and it turned out fine)

Before it was cooked. All my spices and ingredients thrown in there 🙂

(I usually make whole wheat pasta on the side after it’s done cooking to make chicken noodle soup, or do what my mom and grandma always did, serve on top of rice. It is SO good. We do this with a beef stew type of soup)

Spices and herbs:
I really can’t tell you the amount I used of each, because I never measure anything, or write anything down. It drives my family nuts. But, I really need a nice booklet for my recipes so I can start writing them down so they come out the exact same way each time. I’m usually pretty accurate though. Anyway, the list of herbs and spices I use:
Cracked black pepper
Adobo Goya seasoning
2 Sazon packets
Italian Seasoning
Dried Basil
Dried Parsley
Dried Oregano
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Phewww…I think that’s all of the spices.

Can you spy my 3 Day Refresh cup in the background? I got that along with my 3 Day Refresh kit I’ll be doing Monday with a few of the girls on my team #relentless

I have a 6qt crock pot and I filled it up about 3/4 the way with water. I dumped all of the ingredients into the crock pot, including the uncooked chicken breasts, and put it on high heat (6 hours). Usually, the chicken will fall apart and shred on its own, but if it doesn’t, just shred it yourself and enjoy 🙂 With the leftover stock, I usually freeze it into quart freezer bags and take them out when I need some broth for a recipe – I hate buying premade stock and I never seem to use it all and it goes bad – this way I know exactly what’s in it.

It’s a really great recipe for the cold days. It’s been “cold” for Florida the past two days. This morning it was 49 degrees! That is COLD for us southerns. Tomorrow, it’s supposed to be chilly as well, and I’ll be making my famous chili. Stay tuned for that recipe. 😉

UR Day Nine . . .

So, I’m almost in the double digits of the Ultimate Reset! Almost half way there. I’ve decided that I will blog the day after I complete a day in the UR because it seems easier that way. Then, on day 22, I’ll be able to post my final progression photo of the UR.

Breakfast was pretty simple – 3c fruit, again, lol. But, the fruit tastes SO good. I’m really digging it. Yesterday I had honeydew melon, strawberries, blueberries and black berries. I meal prepped and put it all together a few days ago and all of the flavors together taste really, really good!

I was able to do my yoga and stay on par with meals and actually was able to eat dinner by 7:30. SO much better than eating at 9-10pm. I’m still having trouble falling asleep, but sleeping really soundly. Usually the smallest little thing used to wake me up. I don’t know if that’s because I’m just exhausted or if that’s because my sleep patterns are changing. At any rate, I’m really digging it because my fibromyalgia could really use a few good days of sleep.

I’ve been drinking distilled water like it’s going out of style. I think I’m down 14 gallons in 10 days. It’s pretty crazy. I’ve always been a really big water drinker, but for some reason, I’ve gotten a lot more thirsty during the UR than I ever have been – even while breastfeeding. I’m going to guess it’s got to do with the detox.

When starting phase two, a new packet of loveliness was introduced that I need to partake in 3x a day. I was VERY nervous at first because the greens taste so horrible (they’re growing on me, though. They’re still not good, but, I don’t gag anymore, so, winning!), but I was really pleasantly surprised at the taste. The texture is a bit wonky, but, it kind of tastes like how sweet tea smells to me. I don’t drink tea (except green tea, very seldom I might add, and it has to be SUPER ice cold), but I didn’t have to choke it down, shoot it down, plug my nose, so, that’s good 😉

The amount of food in each meal still seems pretty large. Yesterday, when I was eating my lunch, it was really hard to finish it all. I did, and was happy I did, but, it’s A LOT of food. It’s been great, though, that the meals taste delicious and it helps me to be able to finish it. I usually eat pretty quickly, but since starting the UR, I kind of HAVE to eat slow or else I’ll get sick. Being mindful and in the moment is important. It’s helping me listen to my hunger and full cues and it’s helping me look at food a bit differently.

This morning I woke up and I am starting to see subtle difference in my clothes and the way I look in the mirror. I still have a long way to go, and it’s kind of nerving to me that I worked so hard on CDF before doing the UR. I don’t want the muscles I worked so hard for to get soft from not using them nearly as much as I have been since September. I love the feeling of accomplishment. And, it’s only been a few months, but I’ve accomplished a lot and couldn’t be happier.

I had two new meals and they were both delicious. One was black bean quinoa pilaf (the recipe called for lentils, but I don’t like them at all). It had carrots, celery, onion, red pepper, spices and seasonings, quinoa and black beans. It was very hearty and tasted really good. I wasn’t sure how it would be, and because I ate SO much quinoa in the first phase, I was kind of over it, BUT, for the first time I cooked the quinoa correctly and it was light and fluffy – not burnt and crunchy like I’ve always done with it. The veggies listed out at first sounded bizarre, but it really does work. This will be a quick simple meal I can make post-UR and meal prep with. That’s another reason I love the UR, most of the recipes I’m noticing, I can tweak to be able to fit it into my containers for afterwards. I’ll have to add meat to some of the meals, but other than that, a lot of these recipes I’ll be using afterwards. I mentioned before, when I started the UR, I had 6 weeks and 6 days until my 29th birthday. The UR recommends that after you finish the program, for the next 3 weeks to reintroduce the foods you used to eat really slowly. So, this gives me another three weeks after I’m done, to continue to make this a natural habit and part of my routine.

The other new meal was also for lunch: cucumber and tomato salad (with avocado added). At first I was nervous to make it because it had a few different vinegars among other things for the marinade, and I’m NOT a vinegar person. The smell alone makes me want to run away as quickly as possible (although, pickles and pickle juice… that’s my jam!). Everything mixed together and sitting in the fridge for a few days, it was actually really good. It was light and refreshing as well. And, DEFINITELY a nice change from having to eat SO MUCH SALAD.

My snack was vegan chocolate shakeology with avocado and cinnamon. I don’t see that changing any time soon. Well, until post UR. I can’t wait to have my almond butter, banana and chocolate!!!!

Dinner was sweet potato and roasted red pepper bisque with 2c steamed broccoli. I wish I could have had more broccoli. All I did was add water, microwave for 3 minutes and it came out PERFECT. Not too mushy, not too hard, and tasted DELICIOUS. I’m loving the bisque as well. I made four batches of it and I’m happy I did.

So, all in all, I’m having a good time. I woke up this morning feeling terrible. But, I took a VERY, VERY hot shower (which is abnormal for me, I usually take cold showers), and it seemed to help my muscles out a little bit. I don’t know if it’s from the yoga and stretching muscles, the detox, etc., but I’m extremely sore. It doesn’t make it any better my husband worked 24 hours yesterday. He left around 6:30am Thursday and I still haven’t seen him. I can’t really sleep well when he works at night because I’m a big baby, and I stayed up later than I should have, and slept in a weird position so my neck is really, really feeling terrible today. But, the shower helped a little and I’m able to be a functional human – well – kinda.

 

(For some reason, my laptop won’t let me upload pictures to this post, so maybe tomorrow I can edit it to show the meals I ate!)

UR Day Two . . .

So, yesterday was a day, y’all, a day. My older kiddos had an early release from school yesterday (after being off for two weeks – and has today off and Monday off as well. OH BOY! I love them…but, if you’re a mom you’ll understand it) and I always park and walk to pick them up. It started back when my youngest was an infant and she hated the car. She hated it. Screamed bloody murder – for hours. It was terrible. At my kid’s school (and I’m sure it’s like this everywhere), if you don’t get there at least 45 minutes early, you’re sitting in a LONG line, waiting to get your child. When you have an infant screaming, it feels like forever. So, I found a parking lot to park and pop the kid in my Tula and off we go. She loves being worn, I love the exercise, so it was a win-win.

Khloe in her new Tula I got for Christmas 🙂 Last photo before my phone got murdered.

I just got a replacement phone for the new phone I bought on December 21. On NYE, I dropped it on its corner and it shattered. I got a new one on January 7th, and got a case for it. All’s good, right? Nope. I went to buckle my youngest in her car seat after picking the kids up from school and left my phone on the roof of my car. And I didn’t realize I had done this until I got home and went to look for my phone, and my heart sank. I knew exactly what I had done. I packed all three kids up and back to their school I went. It was in the road, (it looked like that’s where it landed when it fell off), upside down. It looked intact, and I was SO hopeful. Then, my hopes and dreams crashed pretty hard. It must have been ran over, or I don’t really know what, but it’s toast. The Apple Store doesn’t have an appointment until THURSDAY. Which, really stinks when you have three kids. I’ll be calling Best Buy to see if maybe they can’t do something a little quicker than that. If not, it is what it is. I still have my old phone when I upgraded to my new one, and while that screen is shattered, too (not my fault! The two year old’s fault that time), I can still take photos and do my UR journey. It’ll be a little more wonky, and no selfies (I know, so disappointing, ha), but, it’ll get done! And, I re-downloaded my Beach Body Challenge tracker app on my old phone, so I can still participate in that and win some of that cash from the pot!

The entire reason for the first part of the post, is to explain why I didn’t blog my day two of the UR yesterday – but here it is!!

I don’t have a photo of my breakfast (but will be having it tomorrow, so, I’ll get a photo then) because that was one of the last pictures I took before it bit the dust – but I had 3/4c non-fat plain yogurt and 3 cups (yes, three. cups.) of fresh fruit (blueberries, strawberries and kiwi). It was really tasty. I’ve never been a morning person and I usually do my vegan chocolate Shakeology with a banana and 2 tsp of almond butter, but, during the UR none of that – which is a nice change because this way I can have more options. It kept me pretty full.

After having my supplements, I waited a bit and had lunch. Today was quinoa salad and a microgreen salad with a homemade (UR approved) creamy garlic dressing. Oh. My. VEGETABLES. The microgreen salad has a TON in it. Like, A TON. Broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, cilantro, carrots, red pepper….It was REALLY good with the dressing, though. I’ll definitely have to make that a staple as far as dressings go. I’m also really digging the quinoa salad. It’s really delicious. With the liquid aminos I add to it, it makes it a little salty and tastes kind of like soy-sauce and with the cucumber, avocado and tomato, it goes really well together! I never thought I’d want to have quinoa on a regular basis, but the past few days, especially with it cold, have been delicious!

There is A LOT of food here. I felt like the bionic rabbit. Nom nom.

I had to have my lovely power greens afterwards, which were….still interesting. That’s honestly been the ‘worst’ part of the UR (so far). It just seriously tastes like dirt and looks like tar, lol. It’s full of amazing things for you, and great benefits, so I think about that as I chug away. They get easier (some say), so, I’m hoping for that! But again, if that’s the worst part about this experience, I’ll take it!

For my snack, I had Shakeology! I did a new recipe because the flaxseed/blueberry version of my shake just wasn’t a hit for me. I did vegan Chocolate Shakeology and 1 1/2tsp EVCO. It was SO good. It was like an almond joy. It was great! The only complaint…I didn’t melt the EVCO before adding it to my shake, so it looked really gross, haha.

image3

Half a scoop of Vegan Chocolate Shakeology and 1 1/2tsp EVCO. Like I said, it looked really gross, but tasted soooo good!

I had my supplements and whatnot, waited a little bit, then I got to try a new dinner. This was SO FRIGGIN’ GOOD! I’ll definitely be making this again. I made roasted root medley and had a side of zucchini cashew soup. I made a few batches of the soup as part of my meal prep and wanted to try it so badly when I made it, but I was good and waited until yesterday. It was so creamy and delicious. I LOVE soup, but HATE how full it makes you feel afterwards (I’m still working on feeling full and sitting with that feeling and not being anxious), and this soup didn’t make me feel like that at all. I added chopped green onion to my soup (as well as the medley) and did half a tablespoon of my homemade pico I made the night before for the southwestern veggie taco. My husband tried both dishes and he liked them as well. So, winning! I was really hesitant at first to try new foods and do different things because once I find something I like, I eat it until I get sick of it, haha. So, a change of scenery is great.

image1

Left: root medley – carrots, sweet potatoes, yellow onion with green onion on top – baked for about 50 minutes. DELICIOUS! Right: zucchini cashew soup – made with the obvious. It really was a delicious dinner!

So, for day two, all and all, I’d call it a success. I’ve been dealing with some overall soreness, and I’m a lot more tired than I normally am, but this is all part of the detoxing process. Getting away from harsh things in foods and jump-starting a healthier body. Also, I have a pretty bad headache I’ve had for a little bit, and I attribute that to the bountiful amounts of sugar I consume with Double Bubble gum and wine. Plus, the lack of coffee isn’t helping, either. I am committed though, and know that this is temporary for an awesome result. I feel like junk because I haven’t been fueling my body with what it really needs.

Broccoli and Cheese Soup WITH CHICKEN – 21 Day Fix Style!

image3

All of the yummy veggies that make up the broccoli and cheese soup!!!!!

YOU GUYS!!!!! I am a broccoli and cheese FIEND. I LOVE broccoli and cheese soup. I’ve always loved it. It’s my favorite aside from homemade tomato soup (with a grilled cheese, of course!!). Living in South Florida, it’s pretty rare that the day really ever “calls” for soup. Or chili. Or pretty much anything that is fall because our 4 seasons are hot, hotter, hot-as-eff and oh, this is a nice 83 degrees. But, TODAY, I said screw it. Taco Tuesday? Nah, Broccoli and Cheese Tuesday! (Although, I did make tacos and taco pizza for the taco lovers of my family – and the not so much soup lovers of my family – which is like all of them!)

I want to preface this entry with the fact that soup has always been a “fear food” of mine. If you don’t know what that means (and most people that have never had an eating disorder or know someone with one), it simply means I’ve got a fear of eating (or drinking) that particular food. Not like something terrible will happen to me (or my loved ones – like if I don’t make my bed or if someone messes my freshly made bed up (KENNETH!)), but, I get crazy anxiety about the particular food and it is EXTREMELY hard for me to resist the compulsion to purge whatever it is I ate. Even though I am recovered (and have been in recovery for a little over 14 years), that doesn’t mean the thoughts and fears don’t creep up on you every now and again.

I am SO FRIGGIN’ GLAD I was able to find this recipe. One of the main reasons soups (and chilis and basically any comfort food) are such a huge trigger for me is because it leaves me feeling full – it gives me that uncomfortable, anxiety-ridden fear that you can legit see pounds just growing on you. Yes, I realize that sounds crazy, but, a fear is a fear, right? I felt like I had to get rid of it right then, because if not, my stomach would explode and I would gain at least 15 pounds. I felt like a failure because I couldn’t just control my urge to indulge in something I had eaten a million times before that. I’m glad I found this recipe because it’s a HEALTHY version of one of my favorite recipes! I don’t have that horrible anxiety-ridden fear that “a moment on the lips – forever on the hips” will actually come true. It won’t. I don’t feel guilty that I’m eating this delicious soup – yup – as I type this blog entry. I’m focused on letting y’all know a hearty, yummy recipe instead of rushing to the bathroom to get rid of it. That’s a pretty big win in my opinion – the best win of the day (and it’s Election day today).

One of the best things about this recipe (in my opinion) is that it’s so creamy and delicious, if you’re not able to have dairy for whatever reason, you can omit the cheddar cheese and you DON’T have to omit any of the rich creaminess! This recipe doesn’t come chalk-full of heavy cream, half and half, milk, etc. BUT, it does come with all of the creamy texture dairy has to offer! So, if you’re looking for a yummy creamy recipe that doesn’t make you feel sluggish and gross, here’s the recipe for you!!! I also added a secret ingredient: I made my famous grilled orange chicken and shredded it and put it on top for added protein and because, well, YUM!!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup – 21 Day Fix Approved!! 

INGREDIENTS:

~2 tsp butter (I used 2 tsp EVOO because I didn’t have any dairy free butter)
~1 medium onion, chopped (I used purple – probably called for yellow, but whatevs)
~1 cup chopped carrots (I used quite a few baby carrots and chopped them up – they’re going to be pureed anyway, so it doesn’t really matter)
~4 cups low sodium chicken broth (a 32oz box if you don’t make your own chicken broth)
~4 cups chopped broccoli
~2 cups chopped cauliflower
~1/2 tsp salt and pepper (to taste)
~2 cups broccoli (chopped into pretty tiny little pieces, these are going to be the ones that are chillin’ in the soup, not pureed to make the base, so use your judgement on how you like your broccoli in your soup!)
~1 1/3 cups shredded sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese (HONESTLY, I tried this before putting cheese in it and it was creamy and delicious without the cheese – so if your dietary rules omit dairy – you don’t need to add it to make a delicious soup! OR you can use dairy-free shredded cheese)

DIRECTIONS:

~In a big pot, melt the butter (or heat up EVOO if that’s what you’re using) over medium heat. Then, add your carrots and onion. Cook and stir the mixture occasionally. It’s going to be getting cooked again (and eventually pureed, so, no worries on if they’re not super soft after cooking for a few minutes)
~Next, add the chopped broccoli (leaving those two cups of broccoli that’s cut smaller on the side), the cauliflower, tsp of salt and the chicken broth into the pot. Cover and let it simmer. I let it simmer for probably a good 30-35 minutes before the veggies were soft enough. You want to be able to mash the veggies on the side of the pot with your spoon with ease – you’re golden once that happens.
~While the veggies and broth are cooking, I microwaved the smaller chopped up broccoli (I also saved a little cauliflower and used it as well) with about two tablespoons of water for 5 minutes to soften it a bit. The texture was perfect.

image2

Pureed veggies that make the yummy soup! Like I said previously, not adding any cheese at all, like this, is simply awesome!!!

~Once all of the veggies (in the broth) are super soft and mushy, transfer the mixture into a blender (or food processor) in batches and puree until the consistency is what you like for your soup. Surprisingly, it’s super thick and creamy! Once it’s pureed, return it to the originally pot. Stir in the cheddar cheese (if you’re using it) and the bowl of smaller chopped up broccoli. Put some pepper in it to taste, and you’re all done!!!

21 DAY FIX containers: 1B | 1/4R | 1 1/2G | 1/2 TSP ***if you add the shredded chicken it’s 1/2R and shredded cheese it’s 1 1/4B***

My results! I put my shredded orange chicken, sliced fresh cold tomatoes and a bit of cilantro! YUM!!!!

Drop a pic below of your soup or leave a note saying if you changed up anything, added anything, whatever. I’m always down for learning and trying something new!!

Coconut Flan . . . Take Two!

image2

This was after the water bath in the oven. Not upside down yet, showing the caramelized sugar. That is below!! 😀

So, my husband was tagged in a recipe on Facebook by a dear friend of his that is Brazilian. The recipe was of coconut flan. Being the Colombian that I am (okay, well, just half – but still!), I figured that I could make a flan no problem for my husband. I do after all, love to cook and bake and make my husband’s belly full (and by osmosis – help his co-workers out as well).

I couldn’t find the flan pan that my mother gave me a few years back (see, told you I was Colombian), so I went to use a pan my MIL gave me that was about the same size. It’s a pretty nifty pan that has a compartment that you can just flip out and out comes the bottom of the pan. (I used this pan to make Khloe’s smash cake a few weeks back for her birthday.) I figured that would work perfectly! – Boy was I wrong. So, so wrong. While I was letting my sugar get hard as a rock on the bottom of the pan (to make the yummy sugary top of the flan), my husband called to tell me he was on his way home and to see what I was doing. I was SO excited and told him that I was making him the flan he’d be asking about for a few days. As I was listing off the ingredients I used, I turned around and my flan mixture was seeping out of the bottom of the pan onto the counter, the floor, underneath my stove… it was a huge mess. I told my husband I had to go, quickly hung up, and mumbled some things that are better left unsaid again.

I was so frustrated that I wasn’t able to deliver what I said I would and I had no pictures of recipe to follow for my followers – yeah, I’m a dork. But, it’s cool.

Anyway, I’m not a quitter and once I got over my initial, “damn it! I just wasted all of that food” I decided to make it again today while my husband is working some mad overtime. I won’t tell him I’ve made anything until it’s done and looks pretty and I have a picture of it. 😉

Below, I’ll give y’all the recipe and the directions on how to make it. I got the recipe from my mama because the initial recipe I tried called for way too many extra things and ain’t nobody got time for that!

INGREDIENTS: 

~4 large eggs, lightly beaten
~1 14oz can of evaporated milk
~1 140z can sweetened condensed milk
~1/3 cup plus two tablespoons of granulated sugar (for the bottom of the flan pan)
~1/3c shredded coconut (optional – I wouldn’t have used it if my husband wouldn’t have asked for it – I am not a coconut person really)
~1 tsp vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

~Take the granulated sugar and put it into a small saucepan on medium heat. It takes a good while for it to melt, so make sure to keep on top of it.
~While the sugar is melting, combine all of the ingredients above in a bowl and set it aside.
~Once your sugar is melted and liquid, pour it into the bottom of your flan pan. Let it harden. It usually takes about 10-12 minutes.
~Once your sugar is hardened on the bottom of your flan pan, pour the mixture on top of the sugar. Close the flan pan.
~Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
~Get a large Pyrex baking dish and fill it about half way with water to make a water bath. The flan pan shouldn’t float, it should just sit there nicely.
~Cook for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Check around the 1 hour mark (open the lid and use a toothpick, if it comes out clean – great – if not, let cook another 15 minutes and check again. You’d rather it be a bit overcooked than under-cooked. Under-cooked will make for a soggy mess!
~Once it’s cooked, let it sit to cool completely. Put it in the fridge (inside the flan pan) for *at least* 4 hours (overnight is recommended – but who the heck wants to wait?!).
~Once it’s completely cooled, ENJOY! Drop a photo below of your yummy coconut flan!!

My finished product! Haven’t tried it yet, but I showed it to my husband and we can’t wait until it gets a little more cooled off!!!!

Let’s talk Shakeology!

About three or four months ago I heard about this product called Shakeology. At first, I thought it was just another overrated protein drink. Or a weight loss drink. While it’s packed with protein, it is SO much more than that!

The people behind who created Shakeology call it your daily dose of dense nutrition for a reason – it is loaded with vitamins, minerals, protein, super foods, etc. There are a lot of different flavors (cafe latte, greenberry, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, vegan chocolate (my fav!!) and vegan strawberry) to choose from and all of them taste great! I tried the vegan sampler before I committed to a full bag of one flavor and I’m glad I did – I’m typically not a chocolate person (unless it’s Hershey kisses!) so I figured I would like the strawberry best. While it was super tasty, the vegan chocolate is definitely my go to. I have my shakeology with half of a banana (a fruit serving), lots of ice and 11oz of water – it’s the best ratio (for me)!! It gets thick like a milkshake and it’s nice and ice cold!

I’ve been diagnosed with fibromyalgia (chronic widespread pain for seemingly no reason) since I was 15. I am almost 29 (getting old!) and honestly, this is the first time in YEARS I don’t wake up in pain daily. I’m sure Shakeology isn’t the full credit of my lessening pain, but it sure has been helping. By drinking Shakeology daily, I am giving my body the nutrition it’s been lacking for such a long time. It gives me a lot more energy than coffee ever did and it’s just full of good stuff! I like to have my shakeology after my 21 Day Fix work outs to fuel my body.

Shakeology also doubles as a baking ingredient, too! Y’all know how I love to cook and bake and make everything 21 Day Fix approved – well, you can do that with Shakeology! From chocolate brownies to pumpkin spice milkshakes, Shakeology delivers yumminess and nutrition every time!

Ive tried many different protein drinks and I haven’t found any that taste even half way decent without the nasty grit texture. Also, nothing else on the market has as much GOOD nutrition as Shakeology does! I originally got vegan because I was still nursing my 2 year old that has a dairy allergy, but now that she is weaned, I continue to get the vegan version because plant based protein is easier to digest. I also did the 3 Day Refresh before starting the 21DF and there is no dairy or animal protein for those 3 days. It made it easier and the taste is great so if it isn’t broken – don’t fix it!

Drop me a line below if you’re interested in learning even more about Shakeology! ❤️
