March is National Nutrition Month and I always feel like it’s such a perfect time of year to focus a bit more on our nutrition! With spring break and summer fun in the near future, many have health and nutrition in mind. I know that when I fuel my body and mind with nutritious and wholesome foods, I feel better. I have more energy, my skin glows and it becomes easier to maintain a healthier weight which also leads to better athletic performance.
I was sent a big box of nutritional goodness and I can’t wait to share these new food and drink trends in celebration of National Nutrition Month! I LOVE trying new foods and drinks and this box didn’t disappoint! This list includes a little bit of everything, ranging from foods, drinks and superfood supplements, that can easily be integrated into your diet.
VeeTee Thai Jasmine Rice & Wholegrain Brown Rice & Quinoa
The great thing about the emphasis on healthy eating is that so many brands are jumping on board with quick fix solutions and options for meals! I’ve been loving on the perfectly cooked, vegan & gluten-free gourmet rice from VeeTee! Their microwaveable rice is ready in just 2 minutes and they have such a great aroma, flavor and texture. With 7 different varieties, there is something for everyone.
VeeTee Thai Jasmine rice is perfect for serving topped with grilled chicken, cooked veggies and your favorite Asian or Indian-inspired sauce. It allows for a super simple and quick meal! VeeTee Wholegrain Brown Rice & Quinoa has quickly become a favorite side dish or even great to mix with salad for a more filling meal.
Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha
If you been around long enough, you know that I’m a fan of kombucha! Wonder Drink Prebiotic Kombucha is the first and only kombucha brand with an organic prebiotic fiber. Prebiotics are specific plant fibers that nourish good microorganisms present in the digestive system. Basically the addition of prebiotics help support the naturally good probiotic bacteria that you already have in your gut to aid in better gut-health and digestion!
Each vegan drink averages around 50 calories and contains small amounts of caffeine and sugar (10 grams of sugar per serving), making it a great guilt-free drink option when craving something sweet.

I’m a fan of portable breakfast and snack options, so these have been so perfect!

Nutiva MCT Powder Vanilla & Coconut Oil
Nutiva has a couple great products that are especially wonderful for those that follow a keto diet! Nutiva Organic MCT Powder is a great option for those that are looking to add energy-boosting MCTs, or medium-chain triglycerides to their diet. MCTs have been shown to be helpful in boosting metabolism, brain health, and weight loss. I’ve been adding a scoop of Nutiva’s Organic MCT Powder (which is also certified organic, non-GMO and vegan) to my midday smoothie and I love the energy boost that it gives me!
Nutiva also has a Squeezable Organic Steam Refined Coconut Oil. The steam-refined process allows it to have a more neutral taste which makes it suitable for all kinds of cooking (baking, sautéing, stir-fry, and more). The squeezable pouches are an awesome concept too because they are so much more earth friendly!
Through the end of May, you can save 25% of all MCT powder Flavors + Refind/Viring Coconut Oil Pouches with code NUTIVE25! Buy HERE.
