Did you know that even those of us that eat clean can still come up short when it comes to our nutrition?
That's because a diet that is gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and even GMO-free can still be lacking in vitamins and minerals that are essential for overall health. Unless you're eating vegetables all day, everyday, you may still be coming up with a nutritional gap. In fact, my naturopath told me that I need to be eating at least 7 cups of vegetables a day! 7 cups!
I wasn't sure how I could ever eat that many vegetables in one day (and usually came up short), which is why I'm pledging to close that nutritional gap this year with vitamins and supplements that come from real, whole foods. And I'm inviting you to join me!
MegaFood is partnering with Tieraona Low Dog, M.D. and Wholesome Wave to not only help you get the nutrition your body is craving, but to help others in need close their nutritional gaps as well. Take the pledge here and commit to being healthier this year by taking a MegaFood farm to tablet multivitamin. The first 20,000 people to pledge receive a $5 off coupon and are entered to win a year's supply of multivitamins (now, that's what I'm talking about!).
But it doesn't stop there. For every pledge, MegaFood will donate one bottle of multivitamins to someone in need AND make a donation to Wholesome Wave, a non-profit that works to increase affordable access to fresh, local food (something we ALL should care about!).
So, what makes MegaFood vitamins so awesome in the first place? To start with, they are made from farm fresh, REAL, whole foods. Not chemicals and science lab creations. Real food. In fact, they are so transparent with what they call their "slow food process," you can take a peek at their facilities via online cameras on their website!
Basically, the process goes like this:
- Whole fruits and veggies are smashed and smushed ------>
- The pulp is integrated with more fresh nutrients (allows your body to readily absorb them) -->
- The fruits and veggies are dried to the point of dehydration (sealing in the nutrients) ------>
- They are then tumbled into a powder ------>
- Where they are then pressed into tablet form.
And ta-da! Farm fresh multivitamins that are vegetarian, dairy free, soy free, pesticide free, certified vegan, gluten free, kosher, certified non-GMO ... and... help you close the gap and give your body the nutrition it needs.
With a wide array of products, there is something for every need... women's health, men's health, bone health, urinary health, skin/nails/hair and even supplements for stress relief. All with real ingredients like oranges, broccoli, brown rice, carrots and cabbage + important vitamins and minerals.
It's hard to pick a favorite, but I'm kind of partial to the Daily Maca Plus and the Daily Energy nutrient booster powders. If you've been following my blog for awhile, you know how much I love my daily smoothie. I have one every single morning and I love to add maca because it helps balance my hormones and lessen my PMS symptoms, as well as helps with stress management. But now, I also add a scoop of the Energy powder to my smoothie to help boost my energy naturally. Having been through advanced adrenal fatigue, it is important that I stay away from artificial stimulants like coffee and energy drinks, but the green tea, beets and B12 in this powder help me stay alert and focused without making me shaky or over-stimulated. They don't add any weird taste to my smoothie but give me an extra boost of vitamins and minerals in one little scoop!
Until next time... keep your worries tiny and your dreams BIG!
