Starting 2020 with Better Choices & Healthy Favorites

I’ve partnered with Green Giant, Optimum Nutrition, vitafusion, and L’il Critters as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Our family has a resolution this year of making better choices with our health. While we love our vegetables and family dinners, we often replace meals with fast food on busy nights and don’t always get the exercise we need! That is why we are starting off 2020 by making better choices and some healthy favorites.

One of the biggest ways I am working towards this goal for our family is by preparing meals that benefit everyone. The easiest way to eat better is by preparing meals at home, but sometimes that get’s hard too! That is why we LOVE Green Giant Cauliflower Veggie Hash Browns. Not only do they help us cut the starch out of our meals, but it’s also so delicious!

Not only are Green Giant Veggie Hash Browns the perfect vegetable to add to breakfast (or any meal!), they are also free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Each hashbrown gives you the flavor and crunch you love, plus a full serving of cauliflower in each serving. Make sure to check out the other great Green Giant products at Walmart, such as the Cauliflower Gnocchi!

Supplementing the Gaps

Even as delicious as food can be, the core reason for eating getting our nutritional needs met. While eating a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables does a great job of this, it doesn’t do everything. For most of us, we do not get enough of the vitamins and minerals The current estimate is one-third of Americans don’t get enough calcium and magnesium, and half don’t get enough Vitamin C from diet alone.

That’s why I am so happy that vitafusion Men and Women’s Gummy Vitamins and L’il Critters Children’s Gummy Vitamins are there to fill the gap!

For our kids, we want to make sure they get the nutrients they need. However, we do not want vitamins that are full of things they don’t need. That is why we love L’il Critters Children’s Gummy Vitamins.  They are free of artificial sweeteners or flavors, high-fructose corn syrup, synthetic dyes, or gluten or dairy. 

For ourselves, my husband and I take vitafusion Men and Women’s Gummy Vitamins. Not only do they provide us each the vitamins and minerals we need, but they also taste great! And did you know that vitafusion is the only gummy vitamin brand with “clinically proven absorption”* and has an Award-Winning Taste!**

We’ve been taking vitafusion and L’il Critters for a little over a year and we don’t plan on changing any time soon! Knowing we have products that suit the needs of our whole family is priceless!

Getting Energy, a Better Way!

One of my biggest struggles throughout the day is my energy levels. Being a mom of four, I normally crash by midday. My go-to is soda and let’s face it, there is nothing healthy about soda! However, finding a product that gives that same energy boost can be hard.

That’s where Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy Fruit Fusion comes into play. It gives me that much-needed boost of energy to get me through the day. It offers a combination of 5 grams of Amino Acids and 100 grams of Caffeine to promote a healthy lifestyle by supporting energy, focus, and muscle recovery. 

What’s really neat about this product is how easy it is to control the intensity. You can change how little or how much you want by the number of scoops you put in it! I also love the fact that the Caffeine in it comes from natural sources.

The other great product both my husband and I have added to our routine is the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey. We use the Vanilla Ice Cream flavor which I love! With 24g of whey protein, gluten-free formula, it is the perfect anytime formula. Since we do not eat a ton of meats, it is a perfect way to help us meet our daily protein requirements.

No matter what your flavor preference is, the #1 World’s Best-Selling Whey Protein Powder has you covered! It comes in three flavors: Double Rich Chocolate, Vanilla Ice Cream and Strawberries & Cream!
