Ways to Stay Healthy on a Vacation & Year-Round
I cannot write a post like this without including my faves: essential oils. They are simply the very best and have changed our family dynamic, physically and emotionally.
I highly recommend that you begin slowly if you are new to essential oils. Go through my posts about essential oils to get familiarized with them. But if I had to recommend to you to get one essential oil that is multi-use, then I would definitely recommend Thieves.
And now, let’s talk about some natural and super awesome supplements for Mom. I highly recommend starting the day with an Organic Green Superfood supplement because it will feed your cells and give you a natural energy boost.
Another way to feed your brain, keep your energy up and give you a special treat is to try this delicious Chocolate Mint Essential Women’s fish oil. You read correctly! It is chocolate mint fish oil! You cannot taste the fishy aftertaste at all. It is such a neat little treat for my mid-afternoon, right when I feel like I’m about to crash.
I love taking Gelatin Collagen in my tea, my yogurt and my coffee. It helps my skin, my hair, my nails, but it does much more than that. It helps my back, my joints and it gives me an overall sense of health. I take a Wholefood Multi for Women at lunchtime because it supplements my meal really well. And I’ll tell you, I don’t take it with just water.
To maximize feeding my cells, I add 3 drops of my Liquid Minerals, Enzymes, Amino Acids, Electrolytes in the water. It is amazing! I am going to go ahead and tell you that this guy here is awesome to travel with because it you add it to stream water and it will help purify it. It can do so much that it would take a few posts to tell you all about just this one guy, so click on the link above to read all about it.
What about dad? We want to also find ways for Dad to stay healthy on a vacation & year-round, right? We can start him on a fantastic Wholefood Multi for Men in the morning to boost his immune system all the way.
Around lunchtime, he could try some core greens, which are basically a concentrated formula of wheat grass, barley grass, kamut grass, and oat grass. Since Dad needs additional protein and all that good stuff to keep his muscles strong, his immune system in optimal function and his brain sharp and awesome, let’s give him some Non-GMO, Gluten Free MCT Coconut Oil.
It is a fantastic way to get his much-needed fats, but in a healthy way. Toss it in a salad or in smoothies or even blend it in his coffee. To boost his immune system without a doubt, then he definitely needs to have some Natural Wholefood Vitamin C. And better still, if he takes some around mid-afternoon, he’ll get an energy boost.

And don’t forget the kids! They are the ones that explore the most, that forget to wash their hands the most and that have no real sense of what germs are, so let’s start them up with a great multi-vit chewable in the morning. My kids love theirs and never ever forget to take them!
Around lunchtime, I always give my kids a teaspoon of Kid’s Omega Swirl Fish Oil, Lemonade Flavor. It does NOT taste fishy at all. My kids love it and actually think it is the best thing ever (kind of like my chocolate mint treat).
And as you know, it is imperative that one’s digestive system be in optimal function in order for the immune system to function as well. Did you know that both are interconnected? So, to protect our kids and to boost their young immune systems, we give them some Kids Digestive Immune Defense Probiotics.
~ What do you think? Is it doable? Definitely! Can you pick out one supplement for Mom, one for Dad and one for the kids right now to get started? Use them, make them a part of your daily routine and then come back to get another set to incorporate also.
