While I try to eat a perfectly balanced diet most of the time, there are just going to be those days where being healthy falls to the wayside in favor of treating myself to a something indulgent. On weekends, my weekday breakfast of a smoothie or a banana turns into an all-time favorite: French toast.
I fully condone having a treat once in a while, which is where my daily vitamins come into play. If you eat a perfectly healthy and balanced diet 24/7, you are probably getting all the nutrients you need from your food…and I envy you.
But if you’re like me, taking the right supplements will give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs on those days when an afternoon ice cream cone sounds better than a bowl of fruit.
Admittedly, I have childhood memories of refusing to eat things on my plate at dinner times resulting in arguments with my mother. Then, her chasing me around the kitchen with a fish oil tablet “you’re not getting enough Omega 3!”
Today, I’ve finally come to the realisation that she was right (somewhat...) and have taken the liberty of taking control of the vitamins I should be taking. While this is simply a suggestion, and you might only need to add one or two to your diet depending on what foods you already eat. Food is your best source of nutrition, but when you have those off days, this will help boost your body’s nutritional intake. Without further ado, here is my smart solution to taking your vitamins…
Introducing Vitally: this start-up poised to shake up the well-being industry as you know it.
Sick and tired of being sick and tired, Vitaly founder, Matt Hitchman, sought help from an effective but costly nutritionist, who recommended a prescription of supplements
“They helped but they were tedious - running out at different times coupled with frequent inconvenient trips to the store made for a short lived journey to a healthier me” detailed Matt.
That’s why Vitally was born.
Vitally is the first of its kind in New Zealand, seeking to change the game with a unique, personalised approach to health delivered straight to your door.
As with all things in life, take these suggestions in moderation. Vitally provide a fool-proof way to assist with vitamin taking, as they come individually packaged but just as there are side effects for eating too much of anything, there are side effects for taking too many vitamins. Do what feels right for your body, and contact the team at Vitally to help come up with a routine that works for you.
