It Turns Out Eating Healthy Isn't All That Easy...

You may recall recently when I announced that my husband is now knee deep in a weight loss challenge with some friends at work which really means, I'm now also in a weight loss challenge but with nobody. This whole "can't buy chips or make mac and cheese for dinner" thing is something I'm not very accustomed to and still trying to figure out if I dig it or not. As much as I try to think that I know a thing or two about proper nutrition, it's a lot easier to "know" than to "do". Like yeah, that cup of blueberries looks refreshing but so does that giant Sunkist in the checkout aisle. While I am trying to work a little harder at eating the things that are actually good for me [such a crazy concept I know], I was pumped when I saw I was going to get a little help from my friends over at OLLY Nutrition [we are hooked on OLLY in this house!]. With the launch of their Super Foods multivitamins, I am able to get my intake of my daily nutrients plus a boost of phytonutrients from 10 of the most nutritious foods on the planet.

You understand what this means right? I don't have to spend countless hours in the produce aisle, at home chopping everything up and shoveling it all into my mouth within 48 hours to stay fresh just to meet my nutritional needs. 2 gummies and wham bam thank you ma'm, I'm loaded up on 
all my daily essential vitamins and minerals, PLUS unique antioxidants not found in standard multivitamins. Winning. Also awesome is that they come in women's, men's and kid's form meaning the whole fam damily can be "suped up" on their super foods. That was a pun, get it? Here's what these little gummies are holding inside of them: 
  • blueberries
  • pomegranate
  • acai
  • watercress
  • grapes
  • beets
  • elderberry
  • tamarind
  • wheatberry
  • papaya

While these OLLY Super Foods vitamins are a great supplement, I have been enjoying a few healthier snacks thanks to the enforcement of my husband. A great salad I put together recently consisted of a nice spring mix of lettuce with a little bit of kale, edamame, peppers, almonds, blueberries, raspberries and avocado cilantro dressing to top it all off. You can try that one on for size if you feel like getting healthy with things.

A couple more quick items to note - OLLY Super Foods is gluten free and 100% vegetarian so eat up. Last but certainly not least, right now you can use the code SUPER20 to receive 20% off your first subscription of any OLLY products now through 3/30/16. Just click here and get that party started.

What's your favorite super food?

We cannot make any connection between OLLY’s products and weight loss.

Disclosure: While all opinions are my own, I have partnered with Olly Nutrition to raise awareness around this "super" new product. All puns are also my own. 



  1. My favorite "super food" is actually not "super", but celery! I LOOOOVE eating celery because it has a nice crunch and can be paired with peanut butter or cottage cheese as a nice, filling snack!


  2. Eating healthier is definitely easier said than done! I think my fav superfood right now at least is definitely blueberries. Also, I appreciated your puns :)

    toast the girl almighty

  3. Avocado cilantro dressing? YUM! I have been trying to eat healthier lately too, and it is definitely harder and more time consuming than just grabbing processed snacks!

    Fizz and Frosting

  4. Avocados. Pineapples. Peanut M&M's are pretty super.....

  5. After reading your post I was shopping in Target yesterday and saw these vitamins!! I was so excited but I won't lie they were not very yummy but hey if it's good for my body I can deal! :)

  6. I just saw these in the store and wanted to try them out because the ingredients looked awesome! But they're manufactured in facilities with wheat and not safe for celiacs, so I'll stick to my boring multivitamins


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
