Does this sound familiar to any other mom (or dad) out there:
You make every effort to get healthy food down the gullets of your little precious one, but when it comes to your own well-being, really – can you honestly say that the same amount of nutritional foodstuffs makes it into your own tummy? Or do you sometimes realize that you’re making do with on-the-go, convenient things, maybe of somewhat dubious nutritional quality because you’re just so darn overloaded and overwhelmed taking care of everyone else that you, yourself, get short shrift?
That’s me. I’m getting better at realizing that taking care of my health is just as much a priority as my kids, but I’m still in the habit-formation stage of putting it into practice. So anything that makes it easier to ingest things of a higher nutritional value is something I want in on!
Last year, Moringa leaves popped onto my radar – commonly ground up and used to supplement the diet of people in India, Moringa leaves are chock full of amino acids, vitamins and antioxidants and in powdered form are so darn easy to add into smoothies! They also are pretty affordable! The brand I use, ORGANIC INDIA, is very reasonably priced. I usually order mine from Amazon.com, but recently was very pleasantly surprised to be offered the chance by Moms Meet to try out and review their latest product – the same Moringa leaf powder I know and love – now in capsule form!
This was AWESOME!!! ‘Cause let’s face it – when you’re REALLY pressed for time, you can’t just stand there fussing with the blender and a drippy smoothie when you’re trying to hustle the kiddos out the door to the schoolbus stop! I’d say that I was WAY better at consistency in taking my Moringa leaf supplement in the capsule form. Just pop 4 into my mouth, take a swig of water and down the hatch! And later on, when I had more time, I had my trusty ol’ canister of ORGANIC INDIA Moringa Leaf powder for smoothie-making time!
If you’ve been procrastinating for awhile about changing your nutritional habits for the better, ORGANIC INDIA Moringa Leaf, either in powder or capsule form is a great and easy way to kickstart turning over a new leaf (sorry – couldn’t resist the pun! :D)!
