I can’t believe fall is almost here. Not only that, but Lauren just turned five months! Time is just flying by, and we’ve settled in a nice schedule for everyone at home. My focus has entirely been on shopping for school clothes for the kids and working. It’s easy to get sucked into the business of life and, while I love the hustle of it all, making time for what’s important has been a top priority of mine! I’ve been trying to show the kids that while dressing nice is important, our insides are even more important, and the only way to build that character (in my opinion) is to lead by example. Scroll down for my chic DIY fruit and snack basket.

 DIY Fruit & Snack Basket

The most obvious way for me to keep myself healthy is through my diet, but after having two babies back to back via c-section, I need a little help. I decided to create this chic DIY fruit and snack basket as a place to hold fresh fruit, a few water bottles, an easy-to-make trail mix. I also added a few essential items from Sam’s Club to give myself a good head start on digestive health. I purchased Benefiber® Fiber Supplement, Culturelle® Digestive Health Probiotic, and Nexium® 24HR Acid Reducer Capsules. Look in the Sam’s Club Instant Savings Book for $5 off each featured product, up to $15 off if you buy all three. The offer runs 8/23-9/17/17.

Why those? The Benefiber® helps support good digestive health,* and it’s perfect in smoothies. Culturelle® Digestive Health Probiotic that’s a proven support to help reduce occasional digestive upset.*  Nexium® 24HR Acid Reducer Capsules are are the #1 choice of Doctors and Pharmacists for their own frequent heartburn.** My husband husband needs these for his frequent heartburn. Did you know that just one Nexium® 24HR Acid Reducer Capsule a day gives you protection from frequent heartburn all day and all night long?*** Yeah, I didn’t know it was that powerful either!

I created this basket as a quick solution to prevent grabbing mindless snacks and drinking empty calories. Instead, I fill it with good snacks and drinks. Benefiber® makes for an easy way to add fiber to your daily routine because it is a clear, taste-free and 100% natural prebiotic fiber that dissolves completely in foods and beverages.+ Just add it to what you are already eating/drinking.  Culturelle® Digestive Health Probiotic^ vegetarian (gelatin-free) probiotic capsule is another item I keep in the basket because it helps your digestive system work better thanks to the #1 clinically studied probiotic Lactobacillus GG. It also helps with occasional diarrhea, gas and bloating* and helps your digestive system work better.*

+Not recommended for carbonated beverages.
