Day 10 Journal
In a perfect world, we would all be able to meet our nutrient needs every day, 100% of the time. Okay, this might not be YOUR perfect world, but it would be a small part of mine!
The reality is it is almost impossible to eat perfectly ALL THE TIME. What is perfect eating anyway?
After tracking my nutrition online for several months, I soon discovered that even on my healthiest days, I was still falling short on certain nutrients. Some days I’m low in potassium, other days I’m low in iron, and some days I need more B vitamins. While I love how my online nutrition tracker provides suggestions for what to eat to increase these nutrients, I still feel better rounding out my day with a quality multivitamin. This is particularly true when you are trying to lose weight; the less you eat, the less chance you have to fill your body with highly nutritious foods. While taking a multivitamin DOES NOT mean you can skip your vegetables, it DOES provide a little extra “health insurance.”
I choose to take New Chapter Organics Prenatal. All woman of child-bearing age should be taking a prenatal “just in case.” I like New Chapter brand because it is a whole food multivitamin, making it a little easier to digest than other brands.
A simple tip for a happy Friday!
