This is a sponsored post. I have been sent multivitamins, nutrient booster powders and swag from MegaFood in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
For many of us, eating a balanced diet is not only challenging, but almost impossible with our busy lives. Even if you think you are doing enough, chances are, you are missing out on vital nutrients and minerals our bodies need to work optimally. Not having everything on board your body needs can lead to serious health problems that seem to sneak up on us including depression, anxiety, anemia, fatigue and more! Sure, our bodies can run on minimal amounts of these nutrients, but why go without when closing the gap is so easy?
Pledge to Close Your Nutritional Gap with MegaFood + Chocolate Covered Cherry Smoothie Recipe
This year, I am pledging to close the gap with MegaFood. Taking vitamins is such an easy way to make sure we are getting what our body needs, even if we aren’t able to cram more mealtimes and snacks into our day. I suffer from fatigue very frequently, despite getting enough sleep every night and I think a big part of that is that I simply am not getting enough nutrients in my diet. I always have good intentions when it comes to eating better, but the business of every day living seems to always take hold and my good intentions fall to the wayside. That’s why I love teaming up with MegaFood to announce their MegaPledge movement!
The MegaFood MegaPledge is a simple pledge that you do that benefits you and others by a simple click. With your pledge to close your own nutritional gap, if you are one of the first 20,000 to pledge, you will get a valuable $5 off coupon for MegaFood Vitamins as well as be entered to win a YEAR’S SUPPLY OF MULTIVITAMINS FOR YOU AND A FRIEND AND A WELLNESS GETAWAY! Additionally, MegaFood will donate 1 bottle of Multivitamins to someone in need for EACH pledge (up to 20,000).
It doesn’t get any easier to pledge to close the gap than a simple click. This is an amazing opportunity for you to get something for yourself, be healthier and do good for someone else all in one simple movement. Make sure to pledge by May 30. Also, don’t forget to join MegaFood for a Facebook live event with some special guests as they launch this exciting pledge and talk about why it’s important to close the gap.
To help you make closing the nutritional gap even easier, I have come up with a perfect smoothie recipe for energy to use for your mornings or pre-workouts that uses MegaFoods’ Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder. This smoothie couldn’t get more decadent and is perfect for February since Valentine’s Day is coming up.
As a side note, I had never tried MegaFoods’ Nutrient Booster Powders and was skeptical that they would not taste very good as I have tried nutrient powders in the past from other brands. I have to say, if you are worried they will taste strange, no need to worry with these. I didn’t even notice them in my smoothie. They were easy to use and I felt great about adding them.
This chocolate covered cherry smoothie recipe has so much good stuff in it even though is seems almost sinful to enjoy in the morning. The raw cocoa powder provides caffeine, Bananas and honey provide sweetness and energy and cherries provide vitamin C as well as great muscle recovery from workouts. Adding the MegaFood Daily Energy Nutrient Boost Powder sends this into overdrive and helps you close the gap with a simple small scoop.
