A Fresh Start. How do you start your day? Vitamin C or Vitamin A? Maybe both and some B-Complex.

Well you know you are in your thirties when your vitamin collection is as extensive as your shoe collection 🤷🏽‍♀️ #goals I can remember growing up and my mom would take St. John’s Wart (and a host of other things, but this one stood out to be because of the name). She would get up every morning and take “natures medicine”. My mom was an advocate for healing the body and treating it well. I likely made fun of her until now…

Here I am well into my thirties and a certified pill popper 🤣 No seriously. I have a vitamin or supplement for nearly every ailment I have experienced and some that I’m trying not to experience, because prevention is key! Not to mention running behind 5 boys you need tons of energy. Some days are tougher than others but when I’m properly hydrated and prioritizing my health tough days are a snap to get through!

I posted a while back about some supplements that I take on a daily basis and the response was so overwhelming and collectively everyone wanted to know what am I taking. So, I’m sharing with you guys about my regimen and daily vitamin intake. I do believe in eating a diet packed with whole foods and tons of plants. This aides the body in receiving vitamins in a natural form, but sometimes I slack off so that’s where my vitamins come in!

My morning line-up consists of :

Super Bio C: Time released vitamin C aiding in all day immune support.

ImmuFight: Second line of defense for the immune system. In light of our current climate you can never be too safe!

D-Mannose: This is enhanced with CranActin Cranberry extract to aide in urinary tract health.

D3+K2: Aides in healthy skeletal, cardiovascular and You guessed it immune system support!

Super Multidophilis 24 Strain Probiotic: amazingly effective probiotic with 30 billion living organisms from 24 important strains. Great for increasing good bacteria.

Once Daily High Energy Multivitamin: This is my go to once a day multi. If I’m being honest on those days when I’m running late I’m sure to take this one if I’m rushing… it jump starts my day!

If you haven’t tried Solaray Vitamins I definitely recommend taking a look at some of the amazing supplements and get your health game up! The older we get we have to invest in our health especially as we age.

What a nutrient packed holiday!

Since the end of 2020 (December) I started doing some intermittent fasting daily for breakfast and lunch then eating my dinner as normal. Since starting this I noticed that my days are far more productive and I have tons of ENERGY!

This is an example of an typical dinner Crabby Balls made from my Crabby Cake Recipe over Linguine with a Cheeze Sauce & Steamed Broccoli

I eat carbs… period, but I’m conscience of the type Complex or Simple. All carbs are not created equally. I try to have much more complex carbs versus simple. Complex carbs are carbs which are higher in fiber such as beans, vegetables , and fruit. Complex Carbs provide a viable source of energy throughout the day. While simple carbs just provide a satisfying taste, they can raise your blood sugar levels. Examples of simple carbs can be cakes, sodas, cookies, etc.

Trust me! I eat Cake but I indulge sparingly.
Cake is easily my favorite simple carb.
Did someone say Cake?

One of the biggest benefits of juicing has been the clarity of my skin. I have always been transparent about my skin struggles, but I must say between the juices and the increased water intake my skin is looking amazing.

How it started ….🆚
How it’s going!
Both unedited and unfiltered ♥️

Some of the benefits to consuming green juices daily are:

🥦When you drink green juice every day, your body may absorb micronutrients more easily.

🥬If you drink green juice every day, it may have an positive impact on your gut microbiome.

🥒You could boost your immune system by drinking green juice every day.

🌱 A glass of green juice a day may keep the cardiologist away. Improved heart health ♥️

🥑If you drink green juice every day, you could keep yourself looking young. The fountain of youth in all the readily absorbed nutrients!

I’ll continue to share some of my benefits as I continue this journey, but I love it literally. I don’t see me changing this anytime soon Today actually marks 1 month intermittent fasting for me so yayyy 🎉🥳 My journey is just that my journey. Keep in mind I’m sharing what works for me. Be sure that if you decide to change your diet you speak to a doctor first to get the best advice for you.
