Every morning, I give my girls a probiotic, fish oil and a multivitamin. This morning, this routine got me thinking about how us mamas still need prenatal vitamins even after we are (most likely) done having babies.
My girls are 7 and 4 and I think our baby days are in the past. However, who knows where life will take us and there always is that chance that we could have another child someday. Deep breaths. HA! Because our food system is just not what it used to be, we do take vitamins. I feel like it has to help balance out our not-so-perfect food system and the processed foods that sneak into our daily food against my best judgment. There are so many vitamins out there so do your research before you buy. I have a few favorites. Click here to see them. I am a huge fan of Nordic Naturals, New Chapter, and Garden of Life brands. They offer amazing prenatal vitamins as well as others.
Even if pregnancy doesn't happen again for me, I still think women need those vitamins and nutrients in their daily diet. We all are stressed and run around like chickens with our heads cut off - am I right? We are moms after all! Stress and anxiety does a number on our health and our digestive system so I am a big supporter of moms incorporating more probiotics into their diets. Sure, my pumpkin pancakes are healthier than typical pancakes and you should totally try making them. However, even healthier food needs a little boost and that is where good quality vitamins come in. Plus, fish oil is something that is pretty difficult to get just with food - unless you eat a lot of great quality seafood. Living in Pittsburgh, this is not happening for me. Therefore, a vitamin is a must.
So, I want to give one of my readers a $50 gift card for some vitamins! To enter, please leave a comment below. In your comment, tell me whether or not you currently take vitamins and which ones you think would make you feel your best. Let me know what you would buy with a $50 gift card for vitamins. I will pick a winner on Wednesday, February 8th. Good luck!
