I'm taking supplements:
2000 IUD vitamin D;
and I sometimes put a T of nutritional yeast and/or a T of ground flax seed in my smoothie and/or salad (for B vitamins and Omega-3 fats).
only if you are dying of a deficiency ..

What do you think of taking daily supplements? I take raw maca, spirillina, chlorella, chai seeds and powdered greens in my smoothie.
The question that I have is why are you taking these supplements? Don't get me wrong, I don't think that any of them are bad for you and some of them may be very healthy, but because these "super foods" can be expensive and the fact that they are often marketed in shady ways by shady people I am just wondering WHY you are taking them. Is it because they taste good to you? Or is it because you believe that you NEED to be taking these kinds of "super foods" in order to have your nutritional needs met?
I completely understand and wish you luck.
When I first went raw vegan I was strongly considering buying a lot of supplements / superfoods because I imagined that I simply wasn't getting enough of this and that, but then I downloaded "Cron-O-Meter" and then I started to think the exact opposite and I started to wonder if I was actually getting too much of certain nutrients.
The other day someone where I work was talking about the super food "camu camu berries" which are supposed to be EXTREMELY high in Vitamin C (maybe even the highest source in the world) and he was telling me that I should consider buying some because they are so high in Vitamin C. Now, if I didn't have "Cron-O-Meter" I might think that it would be beneficial to take something like that, but according to "Cron-O-Meter" I often get over 10 times the daily recommended amount of vitamin C, so buying an expensive food simply because it is high in Vitamin C just doesn't sound like a good way to be spending my money, you know what I mean?
Again, I wish you luck Jessica in being able to get everything that you need without having to spend a fortune to do so.
Hey yo, I just started using the CRON-O-Meter, and was wondering if its sodium recommendation is too high (1500mg a day miniumum)
I bought into all the "superfood" nonsense when I started looking into raw foods, after discovering Dr Doug Graham and 80 10 10 and Harley and Freele I tossed the cacao,maca and msm out my kitchen window.That was "The best day Ever" to coin a phrase, I kept the chia seed and occasionally add a tablespoon to a morning smoothie if I remember, to be honest the money I wasted on that processesed crap I could have bought more bananas or mangoes, such a waste of money but we live and learn!
