Now that Halloween is over and your kids are full of candy, how about stocking up on some nutrition? Breezy Mama reader Marian gives the inside scoop on Juice Plus+®. . .
My entire life, I’ve always been a really healthy eater, aside from a few misguided months in college when I considered powdered sugar doughnuts a food group. (That only lasted so long, for obvious reasons!). Nine years ago, I noticed my cousin taking some capsules before her meal. I asked her what she was taking and she said “fruits and vegetables!” Fruits and veggies in capsules were certainly new to me. My cousin shared some product facts and how much better she’s felt. She gave me some of her supply and I’ve been taking the capsules ever since.
I left 13 years of teaching elementary school to give birth to my son Tyler. He’s five now and I also have a daughter, Mia, who is three. I thought the benefits of adding the fruit and vegetable nutrition was great when I was teaching, but when I became a mom, I truly realized how much it boosted my health. For my husband and me, it became our “nutritional seatbelt.” Now, all of my family members, and many of my friends, have also added over 40+ plants to their daily nutrition. My kids love the soft chewables, the breakfast smoothies, and I love knowing that they are bridging their nutrition gap. It’s so darn easy, it’s affordable, and kids can eat for FREE.
I loved teaching elementary school yet feel blessed today that I am able to stay at home with my kids. What’s really important to me now is sharing my nutrition journey and educating others about the benefits of fruits and vegetables.
The following are some facts about the fruit and vegetable nutrition. If you are interested please read further and contact me if you’d like to learn how bridging the nutrition gap can really make a difference. Consider these facts (please contact Marian for references to facts):
