  1. If you know your diet isnt balanced, her are some good vitamins to take: Omega 3, iron, Vitamin D, Calcium, Vitamin C, daily multivitamin
  2. cook in bulk and freeze on the weekend so you can just pop in the oven
  3. cook in bulk during the week so you can have leftovers and not have to cook every night
  4. delegate days for particular chores, errands, etc
  5. depending on their age-delegate chores to the kids

This is about Xfactor, it's by far my favorite suppliment. The same company also makes a really good vanilla flavored protien shake called P96. You can order them on www. onedrinkaday.com

I use Shakeology, which has all my vitamins & nutrients for the day.  It's helped a lot and friends who have tried it have loved it.

I like Rainbow Light brand products. I take their womens multi and their Vit D gummy.

I like Zeal wellness for vitamins. It's kind of expensive though. Body By Vi (Visalus) also has a good chelated vitamin. These are both "approved" by my chemist husband as vitamins that actually absorb into your system, instead of just moving right on through and not helping you any.

I agree with MixedCooke - cook more than you need, and freeze the extra for an easy meal some other day. Make friends with your crock pot. Pinterest, crockingirls.com....there are a lot of good crock pot recipe websites. Take 5 minutes of an evening, put tomorrow's dinner in the crock, stick it in the fridge overnight...makes mornings easier!

Enlist your kids to help you - even with the cooking, depending on their ages. My 7yo loves to peel carrots and potatoes and do simpler jobs like that. Have them help out with the chores, too. No reason why they can't. Again, depending on their ages.
