Are You Getting Your Vitamin L?
The day of love is upon us. Are you getting your optimal dose of love, or Vitamin L, as we call it?
Amidst the feeling that today is about romantic dinners, chocolates and flowers, check in to make sure you are getting your Vitamin L, in whatever form feels good to you! Vitamin L is what we refer to as love, and it is the most important nutrient for your health and wellbeing. When it comes down to it, love is the food for the soul and it nourishes the body, mind and spirit.
Vitamin L doesn’t have to come only from a romantic partner or relationship, and in fact some of the most nourishing doses of Vitamin L can come from a loving relationship with yourself, or through loving interactions between friends, family members, co-workers, pets, neighbors…there are so many possibilities.
It’s important to recognize these valuable sources and to nurture them so that you can be nourished as well. You can drink all of the green smoothies in the world, but love (in all forms) is a vital component to being a happy, healthy and balanced person! What's your favorite way to make sure you get your Vitamin L?

Happy Valentine’s Day!
