But several months ago, I started wondering if this was the best thing for me. I’m all about challenging myself and trying new things — but here I was, eating the same things over and over.

Around the same time, I learned a fun fact that really got me thinking: The two strongest animals in the world — the elephant and the silverback gorilla — don’t eat meat.

What’s Your Shakeology Horoscope?

It’s Mercury in retrograde!‘ — says everyone when anything goes wrong.

Missed that morning meeting? (Sorry/not sorry, but that was Mercury retrograde in action.)

How to Make Your Best Shake

There’s something about a healthy, well-made shake that’s so… satisfying.

But the “perfect shake” means different things to different people: For some, the perfect shake is just water, ice, and a few basic ingredients.

For others, it may be an elaborate combination of fruits, veggies, nut butters, and add-ins like chia seeds, spices, and toasted coconut.

Whatever your shake jam is, it’s important to make sure you’re putting in healthy ingredients in the right amounts that help fuel your body.

Here on the Beachbody Blog, we’ve got hundreds of delicious Shakeology recipes, but we get it, sometimes you just want to improvise.

So, to help you get your creative blending juices going, we created this Shakeology recipe template to help you make your best shake.
