Until I was seven years old, the only vegetable my parents could get me to eat was liquefied sweet potatoes out of a baby food jar.
Oh, and if my dad wanted me to take my Flintstone chewable vitamins, he would have to sit there and literally cheer for me while I downed them.
Fast forward 19 years, and I’m all about eating healthier, all by myself, like a big girl. In the process, I have been giving a lot of weird superfood items a whirl. I put Spurilina on my eggs (Sam I Am was right, I do not like green eggs and ham, either). I put Spinach and Kale in a blender. I put two scoops of chalky protein powder in my water.
I was told that many multi-vitamin brands out there contained unnatural ingredients—especially the gummy ones—so I stopped taking those, too.
One day, not so long ago, I learned about a lovely, pastel-colored package containing Kidzsprinkles and Kidzshakes. They’re gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free, GMO free, and casein-free (excuse me while I Google what casein is) and each serving contains a boost of probiotics, vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, and omega-3’s.
“But, are they also good for adults? Do grown-ups eat them?” I asked shamelessly.
But, how does a chocolate peanut butter shake deliver the nutrition of leafy greens and and fruits?
Armed with a shaker of flavorless “sprinkle powder” and some strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate shake mix I got ready to drink a load of Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamins A, B, C, D, at a very low-calorie count.
I’ve been splashing one or two flavorless shakes to my eggs, salad, Indian food, you name it, and watching the probiotics and digestive enzymes rain down onto my food. Instant upgrade. Plus, I don’t even need my boyfriend to cheer me on as I ingest those vitamins.
Price-wise, the sprinkles (sold on Amazon) are pretty much in line with a bottle of a vitamins. The shake powders come in giant $44 vats, so it’s a commitment…but I imagine parents throw all sorts of money at lesser things.
Bottom line: if you have a kid, you need to get on this.
If you’re an adult without a kid, and you’re able to swallow your pride—and some Manganese—give it a try.
