I am constantly on the go. Between teaching yoga, running my own business, and wrangling a gaggle of animals on a daily basis, I need to make sure that I keep my body fueled and ready to tackle anything. For me, this starts with breakfast. While my morning routine changes depending on what I am getting up to that day, a few things stay constant: I always start my day by chugging a glass of water while the kettle heats up, I follow that by sipping hot water with half a lemon, I take my vitamins, and then have a healthy breakfast. Sometimes breakfast looks like a green smoothie before a workout, and sometimes it means heading out to my feathered ladies’ nesting boxes in the backyard and grabbing a few eggs for a heartier breakfast. I’ve recently partnered with Nature’s Way and added a new supplement to my routine that comes in a couple of forms- the new NutraVege plant based omega-3 supplements!
I love having options when it comes to supplements- because my morning routine changes depending on the day of the week, having supplements that evolve with me makes my morning go just a bit smoother. NutraVege comes in both soft gel and liquid forms, so if I’m running out the door with a green smoothie, I can just tip a teaspoon of the liquid into my smoothie and be on my way. When I’m in a hurry I tend to forget to take the time to stop and swallow my vitamins one by one (all of you who can swallow a handful of them at a time, I’m in awe!) so having a liquid option is a time saver that helps me to stay healthy without the hassle! And when I’m taking my time eating my breakfast at the table I can always take a 500mg softgel with the rest of my vitamins.
Now, having delivery method options isn’t the only great thing about the new NutraVege plant based line- one of the best benefits is right there in the name, Omega-3 PLANT! Normally when you see omega-3 supplements they are fish-based, meaning that they are off limits for vegetarians and vegans. And while I’m neither, I do call myself a flexitarian- I am mostly plant based but every once in a while my body feels like it needs a well-sourced animal protein. That being said, I love that I can get my body’s omega-3, EPA, and DHA needs (each teaspoon of the extra-strength liquid supplement has 1000mg!) without starting the morning consuming an animal product!
However, not all plant based omega-3s are made the same! Lots of the plant based supplements you’ll see are either flax seed oil or chia seed oil; while these are great, many of the Omega-3 benefits you’ll see in these oils are the short chain ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) varieties. NutraVege’s formula is based on a sustainably-sourced algae that deliveries your essential fatty acids in the long-chain EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3s that deliver benefits that help support eye health, cardiovascular health, and brain health all with a clean, light taste that doesn’t taste fishy!*
Wellness is an integral aspect of my every day routine from eating right, to exercising, and even a snuggle on the couch with a book and my two pups, everything I do affects my health both mentally and physically. Taking supplements like Nature’s Way NutraVege Omega-3 Plant gives me peace of mind knowing that I am adding something into each day that helps my body function at top form. You can check out the NutraVege line either online on Amazon or at your local Whole Foods. Self care is important and caring for your body in such a simple (and great tasting!) way each morning starts every day, as busy at that day might be, on a positive note!
