Starting 2020 With A Few Healthy Favorites

I’ve partnered with Green Giant, Optimum Nutrition, vitafusion and L’il Critters as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

This time of year everyone is talking about healthy eating, exercise, and the like. Honestly, all of the health tips can be a little overwhelming. So today I am just going to share some of my favorite products that have helped my family start 2020 off on the right foot.

We all know cauliflower is having a moment. Personally, I’m loving it and I am here for it. Cauliflower rice and cauliflower gnocchi are pretty much staples in my house. So when I saw the Green Giant Cauliflower Veggie Hash Browns in the freezer section at Walmart, I had to pick some up. I’m talking multiple boxes. Now I (and my kiddos) can get a serving of veggies in during breakfast.

After eating my super yummy and filling breakfast, it’s time for vitamins. I like to make sure the whole family takes a vitamin so I know we are getting all the nutrients we need. My husband and I take the vitafusion Men and Women’s Gummy Vitamins because they are chewable and they have a great taste.

Gummy Vitamins

For the kids, we want to make sure they are getting the nutrients they need without any of the unnecessary stuff like artificial sweeteners or flavors, high-fructose corn syrup, synthetic dyes, or gluten or dairy. These L’il Critters Children’s Gummy Vitamins get my mommy stamp of approval.

By midafternoon, I usually hit a slump. The kids are bored. And I’m ready for another cup of coffee. Instead of making myself another cup, I rally. I get the kids ready to go to the gym. Yay for gym childcare! I grab my workout essentials and then I make myself a quick little drink with the Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy Fruit Fusion. It gives me that much-needed boost of energy to get me through the day.

Gold Standard Whey

This stuff isn’t just a favorite of mine. My husband loves it too. In fact, I have to make sure I get to have some before my husband empties the tub. He has pretty long days so he likes to have some in his lunch bag. Then he can mix some up when he needs a boost of energy.

Another product that we both love is the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey. My husband has been using this protein powder pretty much every day for a couple of years. He uses it in all different ways. Sometimes he makes a breakfast smoothie or other times he mixes it in with his iced coffee.

In the past, I would use the protein powder every now and then, but I’ve been wanting to add more protein to my diet. Before the start of the year, I began using the Gold Standard Whey pretty regularly. I like that it is super easy, takes no time, and is mess-free. Put a scoop in the water bottle, then shake it up. In a matter of minutes, you have a drink that tastes good and has 24g of protein with only 120 calories, 1.5g Fat (or less), 2g Sugar (or less).
