The Protein Shake that Changed My Life

Hey there!

As some of you may know, I work with an online health and wellness company. Saying "yes" to working with them was by far the best decision I've ever made. It has given me the freedom to live the lifestyle I've always dreamed of; one filled with travel, extra time for friends and family and not being tied down to an office.

Does any of that sound like your ideal lifestyle? Send me message, I can help turn this into your reality too.

Today, I want to share some info on one of my all-time favourite products, one you may recognize from some of my recipe posts. 

Protein-Packed Low Sugar Chocolate Bar

Nutrient-Packed Protein Milkshake

Salted Caramel and Chocolate Ice Cream  

Do you want to make these recipes with a Tri-Release non-meal replacement protein? We have that too!I present to you: The IsaLean Shake. In a nut shell, the chief function of the "IsaLean Shake is to serve as a nutritious meal replacement. With a proper balance of protein, good fats, and low-glycemic carbohydrates, along with a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals, IsaLean Shake takes all of the guesswork out of proper weight management and muscle maintenance." 

For a long time I was sceptical about meal replacement shakes. I thought they were unhealthy and I was not looking to lose weight, so why would I use them? Well, though they have helped countless people lose weight in a very healthy & nutrient dense way, after a lot of research (and I mean a LOT. No way I was putting something in my body let alone recommending it to my friends if I wasn't 100% confident about it), I realized how false those thoughts were. After putting these shakes in my body, I realized how much I NEEDED them. I realized how nutrient deficient I really was, despite all of the vegetables and protein I ate. 

I am a healthy person. I get a lot of nutrients from whole foods, I take supplements, I'm very active- I always thought this was enough. Until I tried these shakes. 

All of a sudden I noticed my energy levels sky rocketed, I noticed my body becoming more toned, I was no longer getting hangovers (and for those of you who know me, you know that's a BIG deal. Before, the morning after having a couple drinks I was pretty much bed ridden). Not to mention, these shakes are hands down the yummiest protein shakes I've ever used. No refined sugar and 24 grams of undenatured whey protein? Shakes that contain only the natural sugar equivalent to half an apple? Yes PLEASE.

I am very lactose intolerant but these shakes are so pure they don't affect me negatively at all. All of the cows also have a happy life! No corn fed, antibiotic-filled protein here. Vegan? We have shakes for you too.

Did you know that there aren't enough nutrients in our soil to provide our food with everything our bodies need? It is a fact that you can't get all of your micro and macro nutrients solely by consuming whole foods.

Here's a photo I took of the Nutrition Facts of my Creamy Dutch Chocolate Shake:


Don't get enough veggies? My little secret is throwing in a scoop of these delicious greens into my shake or in some water in the morning. 

So there you go, my secret behind being the healthiest I have ever been.

Have a great day and feel free to message me if you have any questions!

Want a full breakdown of what's in the shakes? Here you go:

A Combination of Good Fats Offers Proper Digestion, Nutrient Absorption, and Health

Getting enough of the right kinds of fat every day is an important part of any healthy diet. IsaLean Shake is equipped with 6 grams of good fats, supplied for optimal nutrition from sources like olive oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, and palm kernel oil, to name a few. Fats are crucial not only for proper digestion and absorption of some vitamins, but also for many different body functions. Isagenix users can be confident knowing that they are getting proper amounts of fats from good sources.

  • Olive oil powder: The main source of fat in the IsaLean Shakes, Soups, and Bars because of its naturally high composition of monounsaturated fatty acids, specifically oleic acid.
  • Sunflower oil powder: Extracted from the seeds of sunflowers, sunflower oil is a rich source of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.
  • Flaxseed extract: A high-quality source of alpha-linoleic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid.
  • Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil: Extracted from coconuts, it is a source of fat that is more rapidly absorbed and used as energy because of its relatively smaller chain length and is a readily available source of fuel for the body.

Dietary Fiber Supports Your Gut

Fiber is an important aspect of any diet because it helps with satiety and helps promote digestive regularity. Unfortunately, most people fail to consume adequate fiber in their diet (5). Working to help close this gap, each IsaLean Shake supplies 8 grams of fiber.

  • Isomaltooligosaccharide powder: A natural digestion-resistant starch that acts as a prebiotic fiber, supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria.
  • Yucca root powder: The tuberous root of the yucca plant, native to the Mojave Desert, is naturally rich in dietary fiber.  
  • Psyllium seed powder: An herbaceous plant with seeds that are a rich source of bulk-forming fiber.

It Also Includes Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics

Consuming a healthy meal is important, but your body needs to be able to break down and use the nutrients from it. That is why IsaLean Shake comes with its own blend of enzymes to ensure that your body is getting the most out of each sip. The active enzymes in combination with probiotics in IsaLean Shake also supports gastric health and digestive regularity.

  • Enzyme blend: A blend of digestive enzymes incorporated into IsaLean Shake to aide absorption and digestion of macronutrients.
  • Bromelain and papain: A mixture of protein-digesting (proteolytic) enzymes naturally found in pineapples (bromelain) and papayas (papain).
  • Lactobacillus acidophilusA beneficial bacteria belonging to the genus Lactobacillus that resides in the GI tract and is commonly found in dairy products like yogurt.

A Full Spectrum of Vitamins and Minerals

With 23 vitamins and minerals, IsaLean Shake provides the micronutrients that are seriously lacking in a typical diet. Getting a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals in one meal is hard to do, but near impossible in under 250 calories per meal. IsaLean Shakes truly provide maximum nutrition in minimal calories.

  • Magnesium oxide, magnesium citrate: A source of magnesium, an essential electrolyte mineral.
  • Ascorbic Acid: Also known as vitamin C, a water-soluble vitamin and antioxidant.
