This may not be new news but one of my favourite basic nutritional supplements, almost all the time but actually especially while pregnant and nursing is a good quality protein supplement! ❤️🙌🏼
This is a photo of the chocolate protein smoothie I had for breakfast. It’s made from low allergen dairy free protein, whole food, probiotics, phytonutrients and vitamins. It’s blended with ice and water. It’s delicious, quick and gave me a solid 24g protein, 22g carbs, 8g fat and 8g fibre. It is satiating and satisfying. It is essentially a perfect meal and it came in a package.
Guess what, I could have also got that from say a veggie omelette and high fibre toast or chicken, broccoli and sweet potato. Guess what though, I didn’t have that in my fridge today (grocery day!) nor did I feel like it. I wanted a frosty thick chocolate smoothie. 😋
Some supplements can be especially great, they can really help fill nutritional gaps, save time and can be super convenient. They are not magic but depending on your needs they can be an awesome and in some cases even highly recommended addition to otherwise good nutrition and if used correctly, can be really helpful! Especially when life is hectic. 🐣🤪🙏🏼🤷🏻♀️❤️ Because I’m breastfeeding I am extra particular about what I’m ingesting. When I choose supplements I look for products with no added artificial sweeteners, colours, filler, soy, gluten or dairy. (Some mamas and babes can tolerate dairy but not all.) 😍
