Now for Mothers Healing Mix - Natural Organic Wellness in a BagWednesday, September 24, 2014
Before I got married, I always thought I would end up having two kids. I don't really know why. It just seemed like a good parent-child ratio. After I met my husband, I was looking at possibly double that number because, for him, having four children was ideal. It wasn't until our second child was born that I felt a compromise could be reached. I really enjoyed my second pregnancy and wanted desperately to experience it just one more time. But given that I work full-time and my husband runs his own business, we made a decision and counted our blessings - two healthy and beautiful children. Looking back now, as much as I longed for a third, I don't think
my body my sanity could have handled the stress and lack of sleep. But then, I never had the Healing Mix to help alleviate post pregnancy exhaustion.
In case you missed out on the #HealingMix Twitter party and have yet to come across some of the fab reviews on the Net, the Now For Mothers 'Healing Mix' is a tried and tested recovery formula to help you through the post-pregnancy period. It is considered a superfood for all moms that can be taken from the first day of giving birth for up to six years afterwards and beyond. Now, when I was asked if I would be interested in trying out this nutritional supplementation, I was hesitant. I hear the word 'supplement' and I automatically think of potent powders that don't blend well or have a coarse and unpleasant texture. It's not that I have tried many supplements in the past. I simply prefer to eat real foods. When I learned that the Healing Mix contained natural and organic ingredients, I thought I would give it a try. And once the sample arrived at my door, I was surprised to learn it did indeed contain real foods. We're talking flax, oats, almonds, raisins, pistachios, pine nuts, and melon seeds, to name a few. Once I tried it for the first time, I felt like Little Mikey. You know that kid who hates everything. Yeah, that was me as a kid. But with the Healing Mix, I can honestly say, "I liked it! I really, really liked it!"
Now For Mothers Healing Mix can be taken any way you'd like - in a warm beverage, sprinkled on cereal, or mixed with yogurt. Golly, the stuff is so good, I could eat it on its own! My personal preference, however, is to add a scoop to my favourite fruit smoothie.
Healing Organic Fruit Smoothie
- 1 organic banana
- 7-8 frozen organic strawberries
- 4 tbsp of plain organic yogurt
- 1 tbsp of natural honey
- 1 scoop of Healing Mix
Peel banana and break it into small pieces. Add it to your personal blender along with the strawberries, yogurt and honey. Once blended, pour into a glass and top with a scoop of Healing Mix.
Not only do I truly love the taste of Healing Mix, I know that I am getting an extra boost of the good stuff. One scoop of Now For Mothers Healing Mix contains 600 mg of Vitamin C, which meets the recommended dosage of vitamin C for new moms. It also helps to rejuvenate your energy and strength by stimulating energy flow and stabilizing blood sugar levels for sustained energy. Plus, it assists in reducing phlegm, toxins, inflammation, acidity and excess estrogen in the body, all the while helping to increase the metabolism which is key in shedding post-pregnancy weight.
If you're not a big a fan of smoothies as I am, you can rest assured there are plenty of other recipes to try Healing Mix with. Craving a nutty snack? Check out this simple energy-boosting banana treat. Love to bake? Then try adding some Healing Mix to your favourite oatmeal muffins.
