If you’re like me, you try to eat healthy at least most meals throughout the week, but as a busy mom, it’s hard to do all the time.
I want to model a healthy diet and healthy lifestyle for my kids, but even so, it’s not possible to be at my best every day or serving the most nutritious meals each and every meal. Often pizza or hot dogs is all I can cook up on a busy evening following a full day. Time and stress is important to consider as well, so I don’t stress that I can’t always provide the healthiest foods.
There is no such thing as a perfect diet.
Even if you have the best plan and a fridge full of nutritious ingredients or meals, you’ll have days where you need something quick and easy and the nutrition plan slides to the back burner. Healthy, well balanced meals, and nutritional snacks are always the best way to ensure your body stays healthy and that you have the energy to tackle each day. However, I don’t always get to the store to buy more fresh vegetables or have the time to prepare a nutritious, well rounded meal.
There is no reason you or your family need to have gaps in your nutrition, even so.
How you can fill in the nutrition gaps:
Dietary supplements help fill nutrition gaps and promote overall health and wellness when we cannot get enough essential nutrients from diet alone. There are many choices when it comes to dietary supplements, so I would recommend talking with your doctor or nutritionist about the best choices for you personally. A nutritionist can help you learn what vitamins or other nutrition deficiencies you may have and what supplements may be right for you.
Dietary supplements can play an important role in good health, but they are meant as supplements, not substitutes for healthy habits. A healthy diet and plenty of exercise through an active life is always necessary. Sorry, no shortcut for healthy food and getting up and moving!
