Four Products For Better Women’s Health
In my box was a Healthy Choice – Adobo Chicken Bowl, a Mio SLICE Heart Rate + Activity Tracker – Featuring PAI, ARM & HAMMER Peroxicare Toothpaste and a 23andMe Ancestry Kit.
Healthy Choice Power Bowl – Adobo Chicken Bowl
First up, the Healthy Choice Power Bowl – Adobo Chicken Bowl. Healthy Choice has been around for years, but they’ve come a long way. I used to think of frozen meals are unappetizing, full of sodium and bland. Not anymore! Healthy Choice Power Bowls are made with all natural ingredients and are the perfect balance of veggies, natural proteins and whole grains. My Adobo Chicken Bowl had a latin flavor with antibiotic free chicken, vegetables, brown & red rice, red quinoa and black barley, chili sauce and roasted pepitas. The bowl looked and tasted fresh and had 26g of protein! Plus, their bowls are now made from plant-based fiber, no more plastic. I enjoyed my bowl and would totally grab one again for a quick, healthy meal.
The Mio Slice Heart Rate and Activity Tracker is much like many of the popular fitness trackers you see on the market today. You wear it on your wrist, day and night and the Mio tracks your activity, heart rate, calories burned and sleeping patterns. Mio is unique in that it calculates your PAI or Personal Activity Intelligence – your personal score for optimal health. PAI is calculated based on your age, gender, resting heart rate and maximum heart rate. Mio recommends staying active and achieving an average PAI of 100 over 7 days.
The Mio Slice syncs with most phones through an app, where you can read your results and keep an eye on your progress. It will also alert you of calls and texts, which I thought was pretty cool!
I’m still getting acquainted with my Mio Slice but I love the challenge a fitness tracker or heart rater monitor gives me. Every day I want to push a little harder to see how many calories I can burn or just how many steps I can take! Plus, fitness trackers like the Mio Slice, offer you a picture of your own personal calorie expenditure, making it easy to track your needed calories to either maintain, lose or gain weight. Whatever your goal may be.
When you think about you health, don’t forget your pearly whites. Not only will a deep cleaning toothpaste like ARM & HAMMER Peroxicare toothpaste., whiten your smile, it will also help you maintain healthy gums and fresh breath. I really like the baking soda formula of ARM & HAMMER Peroxicare toothpaste, because it is gentle, but I can actually feel it working. I have really sensitive teeth, so sometimes whitening formulas leave me with pain and sensitivity. Thankfully, this formula is gentle and deep cleaning. I would buy it again.
A common question I get is, “what nationality are you?” The only answer I’ve ever known to give is, Native American. Native American runs deep on my mom’s side, but I know I am so much more than that! I have always been interested in a DNA test, to see just what my ancestry background is. The 23andMe Ancestry Kit, was so easy to use.
I went online using my phone and created an account. All I had to do was put in the barcode on the test tube in my kit, spit in the tube, seal it up and mail it in the prepaid shipping box. It took literally 5 minutes to do. I can’t wait to see my results, don’t worry, I’ll be sharing them with you!
23andMe looks at over 31 populations worldwide and gives you a percentage breakdown by region, including eastern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and more. They trace your ancestry timeline and can tell you when different ancestries were introduced into your DNA. So cool! The Ancestry Kit is $20 off through 5/14 through this link. I tried the Ancestry Kit, but 23andMe offers many kits to test different areas of your health too!
I love products that are made to make a healthier lifestyle easier! Are you celebrating Women’s Health Month by focusing on your health?
