Working with Collective Bias on their Stater Bros. Vitamin Finder shopping experience was a good fit for me. Since I was a teen drinking goat’s milk and eating brewer’s yeast, I’ve had an interest in nutrition and preparing a balanced home-cooked meal for my family was always a priority, even when I was working outside the home. She’s Cookin’ emphasizes fresh ingredients and lower-calorie, more veggie-centric dishes, so we eat healthier than most, but as we all approach our forties and, *gasp*, fifties or sixties even, taking care of your health becomes of paramount importance, not just a fleeting thought.
Given the results of my latest annual well-check, I realized that I had to step up the exercise (I blame it on blogging) by unleashing myself from this darn computer and be more vigilant about supplementing my body with the vitamins that we all need as we get older. But, with all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, etc. that we hear and read about – shopping for them can be really mind-boggling. I’m sure you’ve been there – staring at the shelves of supplements, wondering what is the best formulation and potency to buy.
Stater Bros. online Vitamin Finder was quick and easy to use. All I did was answer a few questions about my gender, age, level of stress, general health condition, etc. and it generated a list of three recommendations that I could print out and take to the store. Plus, there was a coupon for $5.00 off for the purchase of 3 supplements. Score! So take the survey, it only takes a few minutes 🙂
The vitamin area at Stater Bros. was easy to locate and, with my recommendations in hand, I had no problem finding what I needed. I ended up purchasing Stater Bros. Top Care Fish Oil to ensure that I’m receiving all the Omega 3 and 6 vitamins that I need and a travel size of the Centrum multi-vitamins to take on my trip to the Netherlands at the end of this month. So excited about that!! And I have to be in good shape and health because it involves lots of bike riding 🙂

We’re all getting old over here! My big feline furboy, Tiger, is 14 and has to have thyroid medication twice a day.
Head of the family, The Don, had a huge health setback last week that landed him in University of Maryland Medical Center while on a business trip to Baltimore. Many thanks to the team of pulmonary and cardiac experts that treated him – Don doesn’t like his health status blasted over the internet, so I won’t go into any detail here. Suffice it to say that I should probably rename my blog “CLEAN FOOD“.
