As a working mom of three, time is very precious. I need to be organized, punctual and make the most out of the little time I have. For most areas of my life, this is not difficult. I soak up every minute of children’s lives with crafts and activities, I indulge in hugs and kisses at every possible opportunity, and embrace each new stage of life. One area of my life that I’m not so proud of is meal time. Between picky eaters, the constant demand for noodles, and the lack of time, meal time is not one of my strong suits. I tend to look for fast and easy ways to feed my children, so that we can get back to the fun stuff. Unfortunately, fast and easy doesn’t always mean healthy and nutritious. This year, I WILL change that! This year I want to give my children happy and HEALTHY childhood.
To help me the journey to bring healthy, delicious meals to my family’s dinner table, I have accepted the role as a ORANGE NATURALS brand ambassador for 2014. Having a degree in Kinesiology, I’m familiar with the physiological functions of the body. I know what is needed to keep it running at its optimal potential. My problem is how to change my family’s current eating habits of pre-made, processed foods and introduce them to a more natural, homeopathic way of life.
Orange Naturals has a very informative website and blog, Naturally At Home, that has provided me with the first steps needed to make a healthy lifestyle change! Written by two naturopathic doctors, a homeopath and a nutritionist, they provide both a up to date medical and professional information while still maintaining a mom’s perspective! With advice, recipes and articles from reliable sources, this site the perfect tool tailored to helping moms bring natural health into their homes!

My Orange Naturals Journey begins #Naturallyathome
To begin my journey towards a healthier family, I was sent an array of Orange Natural products from their very diverse line. Included in this sample were ND Shake mixes for men, women and children, a shaker and mixing ball, Probiotic Powder for toddlers through teens, and tinctures containing Calm for Kids, Cough & Cold for Kids and Digestion & Appetite for Kids. I was very impressed with the selection provided and can easily see how each one of these products would fit into a healthy lifestyle for my family.
ND Shakes: Not for EVERY BODY, Just for your Body!
My boys immediately dove for the ND shakes! They are huge smoothie fans and I often use smoothies as a way to get extra fruit into their diet. The ND Shakes are great! Unlike others shakes on the market, ND Shakes are not meal replacements. Rather they are nutritionally dense drinks that are formulated to fit the individual needs. Divided into categories such as Men, Women, Women’s Sport, Teens, and children, every glass is a powerhouse blend of easy-to-digest vegan protein, greens, and super-fruits customized to meet the specific health needs of each family member. With a daily dose of ND Shake, you get all of your essential multivitamin, in a professionally formula, that increase absorption of nutrients needed by the body to function optimally. They contain no artificial ingredients and they are GMO, dairy, soy, eggs,nuts and very important in my house, GLUTEN free! Available in natural chocolate or vanilla, these shakes are sure to be a crowd pleaser!
After school has become our ND Shake time. It is the perfect time to reflect on our day, catch up on the excitement from school and refuel our body. Berries, vanilla yogurt, milk and of course, ND shake mix, makes the perfect after school snack that fills us up and tides us over until dinner. I feel better that my children are getting the essential nutrients and vitamins that may be lack from our rushed dinners and look forward to incorporating more Orange Natural products into our lifestyle!
