I'm on a quest right now to Get Healthy (I always think of it as a trademarkable phrase), so I was delighted when BlogHer and vitafusion™ gave me an amazing resource to try out toward that goal: vitafusion™ Extra Strength B-12.
These gummy vitamins are a yummy, enjoyable boost to my daily nutrition. Since February (we're a little slow on the uptake for New Year's resolutions), Sam and I have forsworn grains and also most refined sugar. For those of you following along regularly, we gave up grains about two and a half years ago at about 80-90% compliance, but we decided to be absolutely strict about it for a while, and for kicks, also see if we could do without added sugars. It's a challenge, but a worthy one!
That's why I'm always on the lookout for ways to ensure we're meeting our daily nutritional goals. I'm happy we're eating more whole foods and am confident that will help us meet our health needs, but I'm never sure what gaps there might be. For one thing, I don't eat the most varied diet. I like certain things and am not keen on others, so I tend to eat the same (delicious) meals over and over. Plus, I recently gave birth and am breastfeeding, so I know my nutritional needs are heightened. That's why supplements give me that extra boost of reassurance that I'm doing what I can to be complete.
