Getting Toddlers to Eat Veggies

I have finally found a way to get my kids their vegetables!! 

I’ve struggled with my son, who is a picky eater, for many years on ways to get him his vegetables. When he began eating real food as a toddler, I could not get him to eat his vegetables so I tried everything including juicing, but I just couldn’t get him to eat his vegetables.

Many of you know I love Shakeology, and sometimes I could get my son to drink a shake, but he doesn’t always like the thickness of it . We also had an amazing pediatrician approved drink called Daily Sunshine that he will drink sometimes, but he doesn’t always seem to like milk.

The idea came to me as I was making my Shakeology one morning.  Knowing I wasn’t going to get all my vegetables in for the day, I added a Power Greens Boost, which is a great way to get all of those green veggies full of all the nutrients your body needs. I decided I was going to try it with my picky eater son.

I decided to sprinkle some of the Power Greens Boost into a sugar free drink after his nap to see if he would notice anything different.  He didn’t even notice and I know he is getting his veggies.

This is super affordable and a great way to make sure your kids are getting their vegetables.  Shoot me a message at holly.hierman@gmail.com

How to Keep Up with a Workout Program

Today I want to talk to you about  my absolute musts in keeping up with your workouts. It’s so difficult to know what is going on with your body when you start a workout program, especially when you expect to be feeling more energetic and stronger and your body is feeling something different.  I was on the fence for so many years about taking supplements, all the while thinking I can just eat healthy and get everything my body needs through food. Now that I have been in the fitness/wellness business for over eight years, along with teaching fitness classes since the year 2000, I have found it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get  everything our bodies need from food alone. In researching vitamins/supplements, I found that our soil is not given time to rest between plantings so it’s stripped of so many nutrients.  It is for that reason that even the healthiest of us may still be lacking in certain vitamins/minerals.  I know I talk all the time about Shakeology and you know how much this has changed my life, it is with Shakeology and other supplements that I use that help with my workouts and daily health. I want to share with you how I keep up with my workouts, while taking care of my body as well.
