With three young kids at home, leading by example is probably the most important thing I can do as a mom.   Even when they are busy, they are watching me.  I just never know what they will remember so I’m doing my best to lead them in a happy, healthy life.  What does that mean in our family?  Easy stuff!


Be active.  Make it something that makes you want to do it.  For me, that means playing softball, family bike rides, lots of walks and plenty of swimming and water volleyball.  Better yet, do it together and it will always be fun.

Eat well.  I struggle with this but I’m always doing my best and keep our fridge stocked with lots of fruits and veggies.  Get your family in the kitchen together cooking, it’s more fun that way.

Drink up.  Water, water, water.


Take the right supplements.  This can be the hardest part. Do you ever walk down the vitamin aisle and feel completely lost?  My friend, you are not alone.  I’ve felt that way so many times.  Whether I’m going in for one specific vitamin or stocking up, I’m always looking for the healthiest option but sometimes I have no clue what that means.  The labels can be so confusing.  Just last week, I went to Walmart to get some more and the number of options is very overwhelming. Click through the link below to find out more.

 Whether we are talking food, vitamins or something else; labels should be easy to read and understand.

Well, I have good news!  Now it is easy.  Nature Made, my favorite brand {and the #1 Pharmacist recommended vitamin and supplement brand*} is making finding the right product AND knowing what’s in it easy with their new labels.  I’ve been purchasing Nature Made Omega-3’s for years now and I absolutely love that they are rolling out new labels to make it very clear what you are purchasing.  They are taking the guesswork out of buying your Omega-3’s.

The omega-3s naturally found in fish oil (EPA & DHA) have been studied extensively for their important roles in supporting heart health.1-2,† Not only that, but they are making them better.  Nature Made now features a variety of “burpless” Omega-3’s.  The special coating means no more fishy odor or aftertaste.  Nature Made® Omega-3 Full Strength Mini, 500mg EPA+DHA, Burplessare my new go-to.

Nature Made® fish oil supply only comes from wild caught ocean fish, not farm raised fish.  With no added colors, artificial flavors, yeast, starch; gluten-free and purified to remove mercury‡, you can feel confident in your vitamins.
