Healthy Eating (read Complaining)

Can we just talk about healthy eating for a minute? I dislike it. I really do. It has been such a chore to try and eat more veggies, more dark green leafies, more anything that doesn’t fall into the pastry category. I just despise it – right now.
I know that one day I will like it and I will embrace it. But I’m literally the kid that will sit at the dinner table all night because I don’t want to eat the crappy vegetables on my plate. I’ve made it a point to shove my veggies down first to get them out of the way so I can enjoy the rest of my meal. If I never ate another green thing in my life, I wouldn’t cry about it.
Don’t get me wrong. I know vegetables are good for me. I know they are nutrient dense and full of awesome things for my body; doesn’t mean I have to like them. The best thing that ever happened to me was finding Shakeology. And I fought that kicking and screaming.
As a dietitian, we always tell our clients – eat your nutrients when you can. We might be shoving donuts into our pie hole as we say it, but you’re supposed to do what we say not what we do 😉
Anywho, I was reluctant to try Shakeology. There’s no way some “over-priced” shake was going to help me. I fully believed it was all just pomp and circumstance. I tried it; vanilla at first. You try the vanilla flavor because you believe you can add sooooo many other things to it if you don’t like it to make it palatable. I liked it. I added PB2 and a banana to it. I added it to pancake to make my regular breakfasts nutrient dense.
I. Was. Hooked.
I’ve consumed Shakeology for over a year now and I can honestly say that I feel better with it. I have more focus. I don’t crave things like I used to when my diet was less green. Now I know if just so happen to not eat a salad for lunch, I got vitamins and minerals from my Shakeology.
Shakeology + meal prep is a win/win combo. Now if only I enjoyed meal prepping….
