Pills, Pills, Pills

(To the tune of Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills")
Should I take these pills?
Should I take these vitamin pills?
Should I take these Biotin pills?
If I did then maybe I can chill...



As a self-proclaimed health nut, I am willing to try anything that promises to improve my health. I've tried juice cleanses from Costco the week before my first marathon, survived over 35 bikram yoga classes, and also still currently consume a multitude of multivitamins and supplements. I am trying to not throw away my money take less pills since my nutritionist friends and family say it's better to just get your nutrients from a balanced diet, but I still have a large supply left so I thought I'd share what's in my Daiso pill box:


Some people think I'm a grandpa, but we shall see who lives longer ;)


These are the pills I try to take every day, roughly in this order.
  1. Daily Multivitamin (Kirkland Signature) 
  2. Apple Cider Vinegar
  3. Green Tea Extract
  4. CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) - fat burner
  5. Kelp
  6. Fish Oil
  7. Spirulina
  8. Biotin
Most of the supplements (kelp, fish oil, spirulina) are from the ocean, and since I don't eat fish as often as I should, I feel like it is benefiting my health. I feel like all the pills I take work except for CLA {I am not dieting enough to get abs sigh.} Also, all of these pills taste gross unless I drink them with juice or coconut water, so maybe they are helping my body! While multivitamins and supplements are on sale for the new year, I'll be skipping them and opting to eat more fresh food, maybe do Whole30 in February (inspired by Isabella and my coworker Jamie).
