It’s early in the morning. You’re rushing out the door to get the kids to school, or to get to work. You have your lunch packed, but don’t have anything healthy for your mid-morning or afternoon snack. Often, those are the times where you’ll grab a bag of chips or something sweet to tide you over.

But when your treats become Shakeology treats, that’s a completely different story.
