Folio Travel Box by Sabi {Review}

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Ever since I entered my child-bearing stage of life, I’ve been adamant about taking my pre-natals.  And fish oil.  And iron during that certain week every month.  I have a grandma-style pill box organizer that sits on our microwave and I think it makes me look about 30 years older than I am.  It’s clear and boxy and tells everyone who enters my kitchen that someone in the house is taking supplements.

IMG_9897I’ve been looking for something more sleek and new, and I found a great option sold by Sabi.  This is the FOLIO pill box, sold for $24.99 at Sabi.com

default_logoIMG_9900So let’s take a look at this fancy little guy.  As you can see, it is very slick, easy to use, clean, and classic.  One thing that bothers me about the design, however, is that it cannot stay open while laying flat.  This is only a problem if you want it to lie flat and open while you’re loading it with pills every week.  With the top wanting to fall shut constantly, you have to hold it open with one hand and manage the bottles with the other hand.  Not a big deal, but definitely annoying.

IMG_9901The rounded crevices ARE easier to scoop with one finger than the clear box up top that I’ve been using.  The reason that there are two crevices for every day is so that you can divide your a.m. and p.m. pills.   As you can see, instead of using the a.m./p.m. idea, I’ve filled it with the same things so that this has become a 2-week container.

IMG_9903

Overall, I like it.  I haven’t gone back to the clear, plastic box, so you know this must be better than what I was using.  This is great for traveling, but it is just a little bulky.  It takes up more space than my previous clear box, but it looks a lot nicer on my counter.  You could toss this in your gym bag, pull it out at work, and travel with it in style.

Natural Vitality {Giveaway} – CLOSED

There are a lot of things I can’t get my kids to eat.  One thing I never have to fight them on is vitamins.  Weird?  There are so many fun ways for kids to get those important nutrients in them (hard pills, soft gummies, medicine droppers, etc.), but the favorite around here lately has been as a juice!  Since we had the opportunity of trying out Natural Vitality‘s organic vitamins, we’ve all been chugging the delicious flavors of 24 organic veggies, superfruits, and berries.
NVlogo-2012
We received 30 packets of Organic Life Vitamins, as well as a bottle of the Kids Calm Multi, which is a liquid dietary supplement.  These are high-quality award-winning dietary supplements!  Natural Vitality believes that liquid is a superior delivery system for supplements, and they are so convinced that they only make liquids and water-soluble powders.

The Organic Life vitamins is a box of packets (30) that you can drink by themselves, or add them to juice or a shake.  We’ve been adding them to a cup of water, and it makes a delicious drink and the kids keep asking for more.  These consist of 24 organic superfruits, veggies & fruits!!  Check out this nutrition label:
OLV-Supp-facts-Feb12
This picture below shows you how much liquid is in a packet.  My recommendation is to dilute this!!  It is very strong and very flavored if you drink it straight.  I didn’t shake the packet very well before pouring it, so you can see how the orange and green separate if not shaken.  It has a sort of orange taste, so mixed in with orange juice is a good combo.
IMG_5088
We also tried a bunch of these anti-stress drinks, which are meant to balance your calcium intake and restore healthy magnesium levels.  The flavors are fun (the Raspberry-Lemon is my favorite!) and they make quite tasty drinks, especially dumped into a cold water bottle.
IMG_5080 copy
So the vitamins-in-a-bottle may not be MY favorite way to get nutrients (I found the taste still a little too strong, and I think I’d still prefer a pill to swallow), but this is awesome for the kids.  My boys beg all day long for juice, which I rarely rarely buy, so now when they beg for it, I just pour a Tablespoon of this with some water, and they think they’re getting a treat, when they’re really getting a spoonful of vitamins.  That, my friends, is a win-win.

One lucky winner is going win $50 to spend at Natural Vitality!

During the summer months, I’m always amazed by how much we drink during the day.  The boys are always constantly asking for lemonade and filling their cups with water (that they actually drink!), and I’m right behind them with my water bottle.  I made the grave mistake of bringing home a 12-pack of soda the other day, and that just made things worse — I was drinking all day long and craving more, but I never felt like my thirst was quenched.

I know that water is the best for our family to drink, but there are times when I want something with a little more flavor for variety.  Karma Wellness Water is a delicious line of natural, nutrient-enhanced water formulated for your mind, body, spirit, balance, and vitality (which happens to be the names of the five varieties)!  We loved the different flavors and especially loved that we could mix the drink immediately with the push of a button on the top of the cap.

“The driving force behind Karma is the fact that water-soluble vitamins lose their potency while sitting in water or when they are exposed to moisture. Additionally, vitamins suffer degradation when they are subjected to UV rays, oxygen, or heat. The loss of strength is greater when the vitamin contents are spread across the full contents of bottled beverages, causing premixed vitamin drinks to lose their potency over time. This is the challenge we see with many current wellness drinks on the market.

With Karma, we’re hoping to make a healthy decision easy. All five functional varieties contain 110 percent (or more) of the recommended daily allowances of vitamins A, B3
, B5, B6, B12, D, and E, and the vitamins and nutrients are protected in a KarmaCap until the consumer is ready to drink. At that point, they just push, peel, and shake to turn water into wellness, as seen in this video:”

Its flu season!  A mother’s nightmare!  Add that to the incredibly selective and nutrient-poor diet of a picky toddler, and I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I’m scared that my kids will be little sickies very soon!  I can only do so much in trying to keep my boys nutritionally fed, and I always worry if they’re getting enough vitamins and nutrients in their little bodies.  Wouldn’t it be great to be able to sneak in these vitamins in the form of gummy candies?!  Ta-da!  L’il Critters® Gummy Vitesâ„¢!

 

Clearly, “Rocket” is crazy about them.  Understatement?

A kid begging for vitamins.  Maybe not something you see every day.

I tried some of the omega vitamins, thinking how on earth can they make those nasty fishy pills appealing, and I was so surprised by how tasty they were!  The omega pills I currently take are disgusting and (tmi?) give me fishy burps throughout the day.  So. Gross.  These from Lil Critters were so sweet and just like candy, I may sneak some for myself every now and then!

L’il Critters® Gummy Vitesâ„¢ come in award-winning flavors and a fun gummy bear shape.  I love that the little guy loves them and I love that he’s getting essential vitamins and minerals to support and maintain healthy growth and development.  Plus L’il Critters® Gummy Vitesâ„¢ are made right here in the USA!
