The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Should you be taking supplements and if so, which ones are best? I know you’ve been wondering all about this and whether or not the supplements sitting on your counter right now are good for you. I am going to help you figure that out today in the simplest way possible.
One of the most common questions I get asked is, “what do I think about this or that supplement?” So many nutritional methods on the market today involve some sort of supplements. In fact, you’re told that true success is impossible without this line of supplements. And so we have so many moms that have a full line up of jars and containers on their kitchen counters and in their pantries and TONS of money spent.
The size of the vitamin and supplement industry in the US in 2022 is an astonishing $37.2 billion dollars and growing, while the health of the country is getting worse and worse. People are buying more and supplements, yet as a whole, everyone’s health is declining. I’m not saying that these two things are necessarily correlated, it’s just proof that even though countless Americans are spending thousands of dollars every year on supplements, they’re not necessarily getting healthier.
At a friend’s house: cupboard full of supplements, probably hundreds of dollars worth
Today I’m going to teach you that this is simply not true. I want to put your fears to rest, save you tons of money, and help you feel confident that you know what you’re doing for your own health
I need you to picture something for a minute: Let’s say you’re getting ready for a really nice night out with your husband or your friends. You’re pumped because this is going to be an evening that you get to feel very adult, maybe even pretty and put together. So you spend an hour in the bathroom before you head out, taking a shower and doing your hair, putting on makeup and your favorite perfume and all of your favorite jewelry. And you feel all ready, and walk out of the bathroom and somebody says “where on earth are your clothes?”
Taking supplements is like putting a ton of time and effort into getting all your makeup and jewelry just right, while still being naked.
So if we go back to that general fear that we’ve felt when it comes to supplements and missing something, you could actually be missing the MAIN THING that’s standing in the way between how your body feels now and how you want it to feel.
The foundation of your nutrients. This is where as much as possible of all of your macronutrients and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals and phytochemicals) should be coming from.
Now I don’t want you to get too bogged down in that (mannnny in the supplement industry do, touting their supplement is more bioavailable than so and so’s supplement and totally missing the point). The point is that it’s better for you to get your nutrients from FOOD!
Many, many women that have a background in dieting have a tendency to undereat and miss out on nutrients and this is how you simply don’t get enough.
How do we make sure your wardrobe is as great as it possibly can be?
If you eat like this on a regular basis, making sure that any splurge foods don’t get in the way of you eating the nutrients your body needs, the necessity for supplements in your life will go WAY down. You just might not need them at all.
Sometimes there are scenarios that call for a little extra by way of a supplement to fill in the gaps in your diet or because your body needs something specific above and beyond what’s baseline for the average woman
Needing something specific - this should be determined by your doctor or a registered dietitian that can run blood tests and other samples and determine that you are truly deficient in a specific nutrient. This may include:
Filling in gaps in your diet with a supplement - if you know that you really struggle to eat enough of something, then you can add a supplement in
As you probably have figured out by now, I am just a huge fan of simplifying everything and removing anything in my life that’s truly unnecessary and demands high expectations. And for me, supplements tend to fall in this category. I just don’t have the time and the energy to worry about all the little bits of jewelery when I’m just trying to make sure my clothes are on every day.
So, recently for me, life has slowed down a bit, but I’m coming out of a really intense season of life. I haven’t been taking anything extra. Honestly, I just forget. I devote my nutrition decision energy into choosing good foods. But when I remember, I do take a fish oil supplement and a multivitamin. That’s about it.
The big idea here is that you really don’t need to spend money and energy on supplements. And I especially don’t advise it if your wardrobe is not as put together as it could be. Start there. And then, only then, think about what jewelry you might want to add to your outfit. But you just might not need it!
Above all else, don’t live in fear - especially with eating!
