Saturday Superfood Spotlight: Kamut Grass

Kamut is a type of grain that is known for its sweet and nutty flavor. This grain has been around for centuries and used to be called “King Tuts Wheat”. Although Kamut is closely related to wheat, it is far superior. Kamut is FULL of protein, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, lipids and complex carbohydrates making the nutritional value very high compared to other grains. Another major plus to this grain is that it is cholesterol free. Read More

Saturday Superfood Spotlight: Goji Berries

There are so many incredible ingredients in Shakeology that do so many amazing things for your body that I just have to tell you a bit more about them. So today’s ingredient spotlight focuses on powerful little grape-sized fruits called Goji Berries.

These little tomato-colored wonders are credited with helping to promote muscle strength as well as support cardiovascular health. They’re believed to help reduce various signs of aging while promoting a luminescent glow to the skin.* Not only are goji berries rich in vitamins and minerals, they’re also a great source of natural proteins. They’re packed with 18 of the 22 amino acids, 21 dietary minerals, more beta-carotene than carrots, more vitamin C than oranges, and plenty of linoleic acid—which may help keep your hair thick and your skin looking young.

BUT NOT ALL GOJI BERRIES ARE CREATED EQUAL! The best goji berries grow high up in the Helan Mountains, in the Ningxia Province of China. Ningxia is more than 10,000 miles from the west coast of the U.S., and Shakeology uses these berries because they contain natural adaptogenic enzymes, which are there in abundance only when grown at extreme altitudes with just the right environmental conditions. When it comes to Shakeology’s ingredients, only the best of the best will do. And that’s why the Shakeology Ingredient Hunters scoured the earth to source the most potent ingredients out there. No wonder Shakeology is deemed a Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition (as well as the most delicious).

Failure is Subtle

Be careful because those cheat days can send you down a VERY slippery slope! You can’t eat junk food every weekend and say “look how healthy I am Monday thru Thursday!”. If you are committed to going down the wrong path, that’s exactly where you’ll find yourself. Failure doesn’t happen from one weekend of indulgences. It’s a continuous error in judgment repeated again and again. A fun cheat meal may not seem detrimental at first. But repeated over time, failure is bound to catch up. So choose to create and implement habits that will guarantee your success NOT failure. The choice is yours!
