My family’s (verrrrry slowwwww) journey to healthy eating has been a frequent topic on Big Binder. I’ve been excited to share a recent find in this department with you all, but my husband has been laid off this week and cannot think of anything to do but 1) follow me around aimlessly/bug me and 2) spend hours on line.
We have one car in the shop and one hobbling along until it can be repaired, so we haven’t gotten out much. I finally threw the family in the car that (kinda) runs, and dropped them off at the $2.50 Flick Movie Festival the other day with a $1.50 box of extremely healthy Ju-jubes or whatever they’re called from Rite Aid and had two hours of blissful quiet.
Back to the nutrition. I am a fan of Kelly the Kitchen Kop, who I found on Catholicmom.com and later realized, hey! She lives around here! Kelly breaks down a lot of confusing and overwhelming nutrition information. I wanted to get my family to start taking fermented cod liver oil like she recommends- but it wasn’t going over well.
At Harvest Health one day, the kids were given a sample of Barleans Omega 3 Fish Oil Supplement. A.P. went first. This is a kid who loves fish in any form so when he loved the taste, I was still skeptical. Maybelle HATES fish. Maybelle tried it. Maybelle liked it. I bought it.
I didn’t try it myself until we got home. It is very sweet, and the ‘dose’ is quite small. There is no fish taste whatsoever. I have no idea if this is the nutritional equivalent of a Twinkie with flax seed sprinkled on it, but it makes me feel good. Therefore, I love it.
