Shakeologys almost twin brother at a fraction of the price.

I went to our local natural friendly store today looking for a protein powder. I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, but what I did find was "alive ultrashake" it's from pea protein (no GMOs), but most of the "fancy" ingredients shakeology dotes on having is found in it +some. I got chocolate I'm not in love with the taste (kind of tastes fruity) BUT it's drinkable. It mixed a lot better than shakeology and I honestly think it tastes better than I remembered shakeology tasting like, and one of the bigger selling points the price. It cost $15.59

Does it contain soy? I'm finding my body doesn't like soy much.

No soy, yeast, wheat grain, lactose, or dairy. The protein source is from peas.

Can't believe I forgot to say what it was in the first post.

I didn't know Nature's Way even made shakes. I do love their organic C's though as they work really well

Oh it's kinda the same thing I've been taking! I've been taking the Alive vitamins for women. They're awesome! I wonder if it would be ok for me to drink the shakes as well.

Thank you for posting this, I've been looking for something to do for breakfast without soy, gluten ect and this looks like a good option for me. I like Nature's Way products and had no idea they had a shake.

Re: Shakeologys almost twin brother at a fraction of the price.

Well that is interesting!!!! I've been trying to figure out a way to be able to afford Shakeology. Throwing around the coaching idea, which I think I'd like cause I really do like helping other people lose weight. But right now we just don't have the money to do anything extra. Plus I'd love to get to goal weight first and have a great before and after set of pics before I try and "sell" myself. Thanks for posting this!!!

Shakeology is wayyyy overpriced but that's how they make their money honestly; not from the DVD's they offer. Never bought them though. Aside from eating properly, I supplement with whole food vitamins (which Shakeology's vitamins in it aren't), isolate protein and Optimum Nutrition's Glyco Maize. That's all I do right after Insanity is protein and Glyco Maize in 1:1 ratio. The cost comes down around a dollar for the mix.

Love their DVD's but their products, just too expensive.

Re: Shakeologys almost twin brother at a fraction of the price.

I've slacked a bit. Sunday night my husband punked out on me. Said he didn't want to do it, realized he didn't have a rest day bewtween that and going to the gym, so I did it solo. Monday all day he texted me "we're going to kill it doing insanity today! ready for when I get home" and then I forgot I had a project to do for my little's preschool. Did it, and then asked if he's ready, "now it's too late" and then I was like forget it, I'd pump up my endorphnes and then not be able to sleep a wink.

Yeah that's how it all begins. Thanks for asking though makes me accountable.
