Free Vitamin Advisor Questionnaire from Dr. Andrew Weil

Do you ever get confused about which vitamins and mineral supplements you should be taking? Do you ever wonder if you’re missing something important?

Dr. Andrew Weil has developed an easy 4-step online questionnaire, which will give you a personalized recommendation for the kinds of supplements you need, based on your diet, lifestyle, medications, and health concerns.

After you get your recommendation, you can choose to order supplements in the proper doses to match the recommendations of the Vitamin Advisor, but – of course – there’s no obligation to order.

Another thing we like: Dr. Weil donates all of his after-tax profits from royalties from the sale of Vitamin Advisor products to the Weil Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting integrative medicine through training, education and research.

Things We Love – Better World Books

New Momscape Giveaway: Annual Membership to The Fresh 20 Meal Planning Service

Lately, I’ve been talking to a lot of moms who say they have hit a wall when it comes to what to feed the family each night. It seems quite a few of us are on a 2- or 3-week cycle of dinners because it’s hard to find meals that fit 3 important criteria. Optimally, those family dinners will be:

1. Quick to prepare.

2. Agreeable to at least a majority of the people sitting at the table with you (otherwise, what’s the point?)

3. Healthy and made with primarily fresh ingredients.

So I was thrilled when The Fresh 20 meal planning service approached me to say they wanted to give an entire year’s membership to one of you Momscapers!

This service does all the planning and thinking for you. I’ve just reviewed one of the weekly meal plans, and it’s got 5 savory dishes, such as braised flank steak with garlic mashed potatoes and pan roasted broccoli, or how about Mirepoix scallops and quinoa?

Subscribers to The Fresh 20 receive a weekly email with everything you need, including:

* A week’s menu of five dinnertime meals, along with detailed recipes and quick tips to help make the cooking easier and more enjoyable.

* A well-organized list for you to take to the store with all the ingredients you’ll need for the week’s meals.

What sets this meal planning service apart is that the meals center on fresh ingredients. These plans use only 20 fresh ingredients per week to make 5 weeknight dinners, and quality is a priority, so you won’t find any canned soup or frozen foods, nothing processed, and no preservatives. And it’s budget friendly. The average cost of dinner for four is $14, and each meal plan comes with a corresponding cost estimate.

Enter the giveaway:

Prize: Annual membership to The Fresh 20 meal planning service (a $49.99 value).

You can enter in one of two ways (or enter both ways to double your chance of winning):

1. Follow @momscape on Twitter (if you haven’t already). Send a tweet about the Fresh20 giveaway – such as Enter this great giveaway from @momscape
(Just make sure you include @momscape in the tweet, along with your mention of the contest, so I can properly track the tweet and enter it into the drawing.)

2. “Like” Momscape on Facebook (again, if you haven’t already), and answer/respond to this simple question: “What’s your family’s favorite healthy dinner?” on our wall.

This giveaway will be open until November 20, 2010 (12 midnight MST).

We’ll choose the winner in a random drawing of twitterers and facebook commenters.
Complete rules are here.

Good luck!

(And thanks to The Fresh 20 for sponsoring this contest.)
