Get gut healthy, get happy!

Something that doesn’t get much attention but has a huge impact on your health is your gut. I know when I make poor food choices, drink alcoholic beverages or slack on my exercise or even when I am under a lot of stress I can feel it. I feel fatigued, bloated, gassy and I even get headaches.

I try to be proactive and take a daily Probiotic to help reach a mind- body balance. It’s a great way to start your day!

I choose Nature Made® Probiotics, each box lasts one month and they come in these easy and convenient two pack pairs you can grab and take anywhere. You can improve your health with just one good habit at a time. Nature Made® Probiotics: Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic has been clinically studied and provides dual support to both your small and large intestine for comprehensive coverage to help support digestive balance and healthy gut flora.†

Each day, you take two pills, which are combined in convenient pairs you can easily tear and grab on the go.I always take my Probiotic with food. I put the 2-pill capsules in my purse or gym bag with a piece of fruit or granola bar. An apple, banana or grapes goes great! Be sure to drink a nice sized glass of water, too.

My go to place for my Vitamins, Minerals or Probiotics for the entire family is Walmart SuperCenters. I can always find a large variety of Nature Made® items there, including the ones you see above, and their low prices are budget friendly. I go to Walmart SuperCenters to find the Probiotics and other vitamins and supplements are available at both Walmart and Walmart Supercenters.

Healthy habits for back to school

Here we are in the middle of August getting our kids ready for school again! Where did the summer go? I don’t know about you but it takes us a few weeks to kick the Summer way of life and get into full gear again for School. Here are a few tips and tricks to ensure your kids can get a head start with healthy habits, so it becomes routine for back-to-school.

Stay organized, create a lunch prep drawer so you can have everything you need in one centralized location.

I store the juice boxes in the freezer to use as the ice pack. This will keep you from trying the find the ice pack every night and having to remember to wash it and put it back in the freezer. Just throw it in the morning of, or even the night before and keep it in the fridge.

I don’t know about your kids but mine go straight for the snacks as soon as the stumble in the door. Create a snack basket of things they can grab and eat while doing that homework “they don’t have”.  This will keep them from eating junk after school and get them back on track. This will help rein-enforce the healthy habits we try to instill in them everyday.

Shop for Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies at Target. Don’t forget these when you take that back to school shopping list with you. My kids don’t usually like to shop with me, except for when we go to Target, they help push the cart and check off my list as we get everything we need. Although I think it may be because they get a snack at the Cafe before we shop, but shhh, I won’t tell anyone 😉


Your kids can enjoy getting the essential daily nutritional support they may be lacking, in a delicious, easy-to-chew gummy. Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies come in great-tasting all- natural fruit flavors that your kids will love, like Orange, Cherry & Mixed Berry.
