I do, however, manage to make meals ;) I keep nutrition in mind and attempt to make healthy meals as often as possible. I have a few "staple" meals that I come back to that I know I can make well. These include lasagna, shepherd's pie casserole, chicken & rice casserole, tacos, and some others. You'll notice that the majority of those involve ground beef- & has anyone else noticed how expensive it has gotten lately? We're pretty frugal so I've been trying to think of other things to cook with!
Another thing that I try to do is to have healthy snacks around (particularly fruits & vegetables). This is definitely a challenge this time of year, since we live in THE ARCTIC (well, not really, but it feels that way..) and fruit and vegetables do not grow around here, this time of year.
So, I do my best at nourishing my family even though I know that I'm not really doing awesome a lot of the time, and I have vitamins around for myself, my husband, and my kids to help make up the difference. We just started using Life Science Nutritionals' Gummy vitamins and we are big fans! My kids were already using Gummy vitamins but I had never tried gummy vitamins for adults! You guys, I'm supposed to be taking a multivitamin daily (my doctor told me to), but have you seen the size of some of those pills?! I dread taking them (therefore I don't take them). I was pretty excited to try out a Gummy vitamin that's actually formulated with women's nutritional needs in mind (cuz eating the kids' vitamins didn't seem sufficient and I felt bad for using them up... ahem.)
These Adult Essentials Gummies Multivitamins actually won the 2015 Canadian Living Best New Product Award
in the Health category! (I'm not surprised- this is a GOOD idea!)
I mean let's be honest- wouldn't you love to have a good reason to eat "candy" each day? ;) I'm loving my daily "treat" and kind of wish I could have them with every meal. These things are keeping me up on my vitamin-taking!
Since I've just talked your ear off (eyes off?.. you're reading a screen..) about nutrition and vitamins, it only seems appropriate that I offer you some
