It’s hard sometimes but being healthy is something that my family is striving to do better! There’s labels to check and calories to count and with so many messages out there, how do you know which ones to follow? How many steps did you take today? Did you take your vitamins? Eat more fiber! Go to bed early! It is easy to get overwhelmed, but it doesn’t have to be! I feel so much better and notice positive changes in my family when we take these 4 simple steps to healthy living.
I want to set a good example for my children and provide them with the very best nutrition and health. Drinking 8- 8oz glasses of water a day, eating healthy (cutting out unhealthy carbs,) taking our vitamins and getting 30 minutes of exercise each day is the big push around our house. Your kids copy what they see you do, so my #1 focus is to teach them and show them what healthy living is about. They take their vitamins in the morning and I take my Nature Made Advanced Probiotics which has 15 Billion live cultures per serving.* We make it a team effort!
Nature Made Advanced Probiotics from Kroger are gentle enough for everyday use so I don’t have to worry about it and super easy to take for my digestive health. They are 100% vegetarian, gluten & dairy free and just what I need since true wellness starts on the inside! Advanced Dual Action Probiotics work in your small intestine and large intestine. † They help support digestive balance and a healthy gut flora.† When my inside is working well I can feel better all around and when I feel better all around, I can take better care of my family; that’s for sure!
We get out and go to the park, walk or go to the gym every day for at least 30 minutes. I try to make it fun so the kids will be fond of exercise and can pick up the pace when they are older. Bonus- when the kids get out and play/exercise, they are more likely to fall asleep a bit faster at night and I know no mama out there is complaining about that!
Ever hear if it doesn’t come from an animal or the ground, don’t eat it! Well it’s true, hard, but true! There is so much processed food out their full of sugar, steroids and all sorts of yucky things that are not good for our bodies. Junk in = junk out here folks! Make a shopping list ahead of time and don’t go to the store hungry so you will be more focused on picking out healthy food for your family so you can live better! Stay in the front of the store or the back, try to avoid the middle where all the yucky food is. Some great starter ideas for you is to stock up on fresh fruit, veges, organic meat and free-range eggs!
Kroger is a go to spot for us when we need to pick up healthy food as they have an amazing produce and deli section, household items and even my Nature Made Advanced Probiotics. Yes, they have a huge pharmacy section so you can pick up everything you need all in one place, which makes for really easy! Everyone is always nice and the kids love pushing around the little kids carts! I highly suggest checking out Kroger next time you need to pick up some healthy food and Nature Made Advanced Probiotics.
Buying and picking healthy choices is half the battle when it comes to being and eating healthy. I find if I have it ready and prepared, I am more likely to eat it versus not being prepared and opting for takeout. Takeout food in excess and all those unhealthy carbs/calories are so not good for us at all! It takes a little preparation sometimes but you can be and live healthy! Remember your kids are watching and they want to be just like you!
So, one step at a time, Mom!
Just start with one of our tips for families striving for healthy living and start there!
