Fruits & Veggies in a Shaker ~ Addison Field's RDA-12 Multivitamin Review

9:11 PM

When I first met my husband I was shocked and a bit concerned when I learned that he consumed absolutely no vegetables. He ate fruit once in a while but not one vegetable. I grew up in a home where vegetables and fruits were a part of our everyday meal plan. Eating vegetables was not hard for me and there are many that I enjoy and NOT eating them was not an option. We were always given a "no thank you" helping, even if we didn't like the veggie being served. It was not easy all the time but thankfully, my love for vegetables kept those no thank you helpings to a minimum. My husband still does not eat vegetables except for an occasional salad and I have seen his habit rubbing off on my two eldest children. I stress to him the importance of being a good example to the children by eating his veggies but he just doesn't budge. So, I am always looking for ways to get my children to eat veggies on a semi-regular basis.
Recently, I became acquainted with a company called Addison Field and an amazing product that they make...RDA-12, which basically means recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of 12 essential vitamins. The best part about this multivitamin product is that it comes in a powdered form that you can shake onto your food! When I heard about that option, I was very excited. Within this gluten-free and soy-free powder, you will find the following all-natural, whole food ingredients: broccoli, oranges, whole strawberries, pomegranates, oranges, Shiitake mushrooms, apples, beets, cranberries, carrots, grapes, and tomatoes. These are all so good for you and when you think about the fact that skins and stalks are included, it makes them even better for you. My mom always told me that the best vitamins are found right were the peel meets the fruit/vegetable so if you can get away without peeling things you are better off. She was so right!
So, for this review I was sent a shaker bottle of RDA-12 to try and I was so excited, mainly because I live in a house full of people who dislike veggies. As a mom, I try to give my family the best but when they refuse to eat the best, my hands are tied. My bottle arrived several weeks ago and I opened it right away.
I will mention here that they say it is odorless and tasteless but I can definitely smell it. I don't find the smell bad though, just healthy. :) This powder is brown in color and light in texture. It sprinkles easily onto just about anything I make...pizza, macaroni and cheese, salads and other dishes. My family doesn't notice it and I like the fact that I can add some nutrition to their diets in a secret way. So far, there hasn't been any visible changes in them that I can see but I know that the vitamins are getting into them and that is what counts. I love to make green smoothies and this would be a fantastic addition to those as well...just thought of that.

For the powder, you only need about 1/4 teaspoon per day to meet the daily allowance of veggies and fruits and honestly, that is not much at all. You see that the bottle costs $87.99 but keep in mind that this bottle is designed to last 4-8 months so don't fret about the price. It is totally reasonable. I honestly almost fell out of my chair when I saw the price but once I realized how much I used per day, I felt a lot better knowing that it will last a long time.
You can also buy this in capsule form if you prefer to take your veggies and fruits that way. Pricing for all of Addison Field's products can be found HERE and you have some options to buy several bottles at once as well, which is nice. Be sure to check out Addison Field's on Facebook as well as on Twitter...they will be so glad that you stopped by. :) For those of you who are struggling to get your family to eat healthy, please check out RDA-12 and maybe, just maybe you can get your family the vitamins they need in one easy shaker bottle.

  2. This sounds like a very good way to get your vitamins and minerals when they can not always be eaten in the diet. This sounds like a high potency vitamins and I like that it can be added to food. This is probably a better way to get into the system.
