Omega Supplement

I've been toying with the idea of taking Omega-3 supplements for a while, but I just now got around to actually doing it. They aren't vegetarian (even aside from the fish oil, there's also gelatin), but I want to make sure I round out my diet. Since I really like my multivitamin, I decided to go with the same brand: Rainbow Lite.

It was so easy to fall into really unhealthy habits during the break. First it was the 15-hour road trip (our two primary options are veggie burgers at Burger King and Taco Bell). Then it was trays of snackie foods at my parents' house and dinners out with Matt's family.

Now that I'm home, I'm back into healthy eating mode: a hearty breakfast of oatmeal, apples, dried cherries, and pumpkin seeds, a morning snack of fruit, a lunch with protein, carbs, and vegetables, an afternoon snack with protein/calcium, and a healthy dinner. And lots of water. And my vitamins.

(Of course it's only day two of being back in healthy mode, which is easier said than done...)

As a vegetarian I too was bummed that to get the Omega-3 benefit I had to take fish oil. I talked to my doctor about it and he recommended I try Flaxseed oil instead. You may want to check it out.

P.S. Love your blog!
