NOW Foods

I have a healthy obsession with NOW Foods! They are at the top of my list of favorite companies. Since becoming a non-processed food eating family, I've turned to NOW for all of my supplements. In the beginning, I was still using my normal brands for pre and post workout meals and for vitamins and minerals throughout the day. But then wham! Wake up call. I realized that even though I was eating as clean as possible, I was still putting all of this junk in my body that I could hardly even pronounce, let alone know what it was doing to my body. My preworkout had dyes in it that are banned in other countries and my post workout shake had acesulfame potassium and other artificial ingredients in it. Trust me, I did some research on Ace-K and it wasn't pretty. Pretty sickening to think that our government doesn't give a rat's patooty about regulating what is safe for consumption, although I am aware they like to claim otherwise. I'm not a fool, though, and I won't be one of their little lab rats, and I also won't be one of the ones out there blowing buku's of moolah for supplements that contain more artificial fillers than it does actual beneficial proteins, etc. I now buy my multi vitamins, glutamine, protein powder, everything that gets me through the day from NOW Foods. Nothing fake with this company. You get the real deal. They even sell foods such as sunflower seeds that are non-GMO, which I love! I tried this Raw Energy Nut Mix that I received as part of a prize I won from another blog, and it is YUMMY! It has raisins, pumpkin seeds, almonds, pecans, walnuts, and cashews. Great for a midday snack to get you through the day.

If you haven't already done so, I highly suggest you take a look at that "Other Ingredients" list on your protein powder. You'll be surprised at what's in some of those top-rated, highly recommended brands out there. Be sure to take a look at NOW Foods for your supplement needs in the future.

Below is a picture of all the great products from NOW Foods I won from a contest on another blog. I loved each and every one of them, including the backpack with it's super soft padding!! They were generous enough to gift me with Chocolate Protein Powder, Eve Multi Vitamins, Energy Nut Mix, and 3 boxes of their Slender Sticks, which are these awesome little packets of powder that add vitamins and all natural flavor to your boring water!
