William B. Won $500 in Beachbody Challenge Daily Prize

Meet William B.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for February 27th!

Talk about a complete mess—before I started with Beachbody, I was totally out of control. Every day was the same—work…drink 8 cups of coffee…smoke 2 packs of cigarettes…work…go home…gorge on food till I’d pass out in a food coma…then get up and do it all over again.

I was on meds for depression, anxiety, and acid reflux. I hated every picture of myself, and actually deleted years of my life because I couldn’t stand the way I looked. And I desperately needed a change.

So after seeing an infomercial for P90X, I said, okay. I did P90X and loved it. Everything was a challenge—learning to eat, learning to work out—but I stuck with it. It was the start of my journey, and I loved it. It got me back on track. But the thing that really changed my life was Body Beast. It just seemed like the next logical step—and it was. Bulk, baby, bulk became my mantra.

And every part of my life has changed. I LOVE fitness and living life, versus just watching it pass me by. I do mud runs and races. My relationships have gotten better. I got my confidence back. Got my self-esteem back. Got my thirst for life back. And I’ve got a better body than ever before!

Body Beast—and Beachbody—changed my life…and they can change yours, too!

You can change your life, too. Take The Beachbody Challenge™, for the ultimate motivation to get fit! Select any Beachbody® program and once you complete it, share your results for your chance to win cash and prizes.

Virgin Vegan Eggnog

Recipe: Virgin Vegan Eggnog

(Makes 6 servings)

 

Les Mills Combat

There are few holiday drinks yummier than eggnog. But between the raw eggs, milk, sugar, and rum, there are also few drinks more caloric. So we’ve come up with a healthy, cruelty-free take on this classic drink—and we’ve done it without the aid of additive- and preservative-loaded, pre-made faux milks. It’s a great way to put some ho-ho-ho in your holiday party and still be able to drive-drive-drive home.

(And, yes, you can put Shakeology® in it if you want to.)

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups raw almonds
  • Filtered water for soaking nuts
  • 8 cups filtered water
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup raw almond butter
  • 1-1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
  • 2 tsp. rum extract (or to taste)**

Preparation:

  1. Soak almonds overnight in water.
  2. Rinse and drain soaked almonds.
  3. Place soaked almonds and 6 cups of filtered water in blender or food processor (may need to do in 2 batches). Blend on highest speed for 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Strain milk through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth; discard solids.*
  5. Place almond milk back into blender; add almond butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
  6. Blend for 30 seconds; pour into large pitcher with cover.
  7. Cover and refrigerate until cold.

Tips:

  1. *Solids can be dried out in the oven at a low temperature (225° F) and used as almond flour in baking recipes.
  2. **You can hold off on the rum extract if you think the kids won’t like it, and then add a few drops to your individual glass of eggnog.
  3. Vegan eggnog can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
