So What’s in Ms. iAmHealthyFit’s Pantry?

One of the questions I get all the time is “So what’s in your pantry?”

So I have put together a small list of my favorite items in no particular order!

Vitamins

Prior to embarking on this fitness journey, I did not take vitamins. I have always heard about the benefits specially if you do not eat enough vegetables and fruits but it simply was not my thing. When I decided to go natural one of the main things I was instructed to add to my diet was vitamins. So I did! It turns out that For me, GNC Women’s Ultra Mega was a great fit! I have not gotten as sick as I usually do, but that could be because of  combination of things including vitamins. I do take them everyday and have seen my nails, and hair grow alot. So should you run and buy vitamins? No. Check with your doctor first and if he recommends it you should try it! Specially if you have some type of immune deficiency like I do. CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR! Remember this works for me, you have to find what works for you!

Supplementary Shakes

I started drinking supplementary shakes because it was a quick way to get going during the mornings. I mix the powder with fruits and juice, water or almond milk it is very tasty! Makes my life easy when I am lazy and I need a quick meal. I have tried a number of shakes and natural shakes with no protein are my favorite. However, I enjoy the protein because it has helped me build muscle mass! So should you go and buy all the protein powder to make shakes? No. You should test them. GNC sells the protein shakes I take and have sample versions you can try before investing $$$. Shakeology has to be order through the website. If you are interested let me know and I can get you hooked up with a discount!

Vegetables and Fruits

I can vegetables all day, every day, and be absolutely happy about it! So ofcourse I have lots of veggies. A week’s worth of vegetables costs me about $30 from the local market. After buying your goods make sure you cook for the week and prepare your meals, this will initially be very time consuming but once you are done, you will be done for the week! Should you go and buy lots of veggies and fruits for your weekly meals? ABSOLUTELY!

Water

This may seem like a no brainer but you need to drink a lot of water on a daily basis. You should drink half your body weight in ounces of water. If you weight 100 lbs then you should drink 50 oz of water a day! I love to flavor it with lemon! And word on the street is, that it is very beneficial for your body! I am not expert so ask your doctor!
