I have always been a bit of a health-enthusiast. This started from a very young age as my parents raised me to love eating healthy home-made foods. From gardening to enjoying preparing foods, to eating at the table with my family-I enjoy great foods and a healthy diet!
Even though both my family and I enjoy a healthy and balanced diet, I am still a big believer in supplements. There are honestly just some nutrients that I know are so essential and important that I am not getting enough of in my typical food rotation. So, I do enjoy using both supplements and foods that are enriched with vitamins and nutrients. This became particularly important to me when I was pregnant with both of my kids. Nourishing both my own body and my growing baby was of the utmost importance. I did quite a bit of research on prenatal vitamins and nutrients that babies need in-utero. I was fascinated by DHA omega-3 and realized that this was a nutrient that was missing in my diet that I not only needed, but that my growing baby needed too!
