Last month, I had the pleasure of trying and reviewing a month’s supply of Everest Nutrition’s Krill Oil Supplement. Taken once per day, the two-capsule regimen contains 1,250 mg of 100% Pure Krill Oil, and is described as being 54 times more powerful than fish oil supplements.
Having taken Fish Oil Supplements before, and not experienced or seen any clear benefit to it, I was intrigued when Everest Nutrition asked me to review a 30-day supply of their Pure Pressed Antarctic Krill Oil Supplements. Overall, I was very pleased with the 30-day review period.
The Everest Nutrition site explains that “research from the scientific and medical communities confirms the incredible effects this krill oil can have in promoting heart and joint health, lowered cholesterol, improved moods and comfort during menstruation” 1.Though my review does not come close to the peer-reviewed studies that have been done on the supplement, I do feel that the Krill Oil supplements aided in decreasing symptoms from PMS, anxiety, and fatigue in my daily life. They were so much easier to take than regular fish oil pills, and the price is reasonable, at about $1 USD per day.
Ease of Use
I found the Everest Nutrition Krill Oil Tablets very easy to take every day. They are smaller than other fish oil supplements I have taken in the past, and I experienced no fish-flavoured burps (which are common with other fish oil supplements). I also enjoyed perceived benefits from the krill oil supplement: I felt more energetic, less anxious, and had a much less painful menstruation than usual while taking the Everest Nutrition krill oil supplement.
The Everest Krill Oil Supplement has been shown in studies to promote joint and heart health, as well as assist in lowering cholesterol and improve overall mood and lower discomfort during menstruation. The specific perceived benefits that I experienced while taking the krill oil supplement from Everest Nutrition were an improved overall mood and energy level, less discomfort during menstruation, and less anxiousness.
Some readers may be interested to know if Everest Nutrition’s Krill Oil is sustainable. Here is some information on the sustainability of the antarctic krill oil harvesting, directly from Everest Nutrition’s Krill Oil Site:
Our Krill harvest is regulated by the CCAMLR, an organization dedicated to conserving the oceans ecosystem. They do this by setting precautionary catch limits and only licensing certain companies to do krill harvesting. Because krill is considered to be the largest biomass in the world (if you put all the krill in the world on a scale it would weigh more than all the human beings on earth) there is no chance of them becoming endangered.
You can buy a month’s worth of Krill Oil Supplements from Everest Nutrition for $29.95 USD, which is around $1 per day. Their website also has great deals on bulk ordering – their special allowing you to buy a 7-month supply for the price of 5 months is a savings of over 20% compared to the price of a 1 month’s supply. Everest Nutrition is also so sure that you will like their product (as I did!) that they offer a 90-day money back guarantee.

I picked up Cynthia Ulrich Tobias’ book You Can’t Make Me! (But I Can Be Persuaded): Strategies for bringing Out the Best in Your Strong Willed Child at the La Leche League of MA/RI/VT Area Conference a couple weekends ago. Let me tell you how much I LOVE this book for giving myself and my husband tools and ideas for helping to nurture our spirited, strong-willed Abbey (now 4 1/2). . .
One of the main focuses so far has been to make sure that we are not trying to take all of Abbey’s power away. Apparently, powerlessness is basically toxic for a Strong Willed Child (SWC)’s emotional state, and that interactions can go from sweet to sour very quickly if we as parents try to take away all power from Abbey.
We are trying to apply this thought in our lives, abstaining from saying “you WILL do [such and such]” and trying to offer Abbey the chance to take some responsibility for things. i.e. “What do you think might happen if you don’t pick up your toys?” instead of commanding “You WILL pick up your barbies by the time I get back to your room.”
So far, the book has been making TOTAL sense for our lives with Abbey, and we look forward to reading the rest of it!
What books have you found useful on your parenting journey?
A friend reminded me at the gym today that our next military PCS (Permanent Change of Station) is a month away. I hadn’t really thought about it being that soon. While we have been doing physical prep like cleaning out closets, donating extra clothing and household items, and loads of paper-work, I didn’t realize that the move was coming up so very soon!
We leave for Kodiak, Alaska on June 1, and between taking the kiddos on a road trip across the whole USA to our new home in the Last Frontier, and my online college classes that will be going on through June, I’m going to be a pretty busy mama, and there won’t be much blogging going on (from ME anyway).
I’m planning on writing a series of posts through the summer documenting our PCS, but that’s going to be one post per week at max.
So, I’m calling out to all of my readers and fellow bloggers to ask for post submissions for guest posts on Me, Mothering, and Making it All Work to be scheduled for the months of June and July.
If you are interested in guest posting on Me, Mothering, and Making it All Work, please email me at willa [dot] amy [at] gmail [dot] com with your name, post idea, and your blog web address (if you have one). I’m thrilled to open up the summer months to parents (and even non-parents) who would be willing to share their ideas (new or previously published) on any of the topics that I normally write about on Me, Mothering, and Making it All Work.
My blog topics include:
Breastfeeding awareness, education, support, and advocacy
Sewing, knitting, and creating for the family (crafts, etc)
Healthy Cooking and Eating Habits
. . . among others. If you have an idea that doesn’t fit into any of these categories, but you think it would be a good fit for the blog, go ahead and send it my way!
If you could please send me submissions before May 31st, that would be ideal! I look forward to showcasing the work of other friends and fellow writers during the summer months, while we embark on the next chapter of our military family life!
This week, we celebrated Joseph’s 2nd Birthday with a Thomas the Train themed party.
He was so excited! “My party! My Thomas party!”
Joseph, Abbey and their friends had a great time coloring, playing, and snacking.
We had a small ice cream cake with a Thomas candle for birthday wishes, and my friend Erica made adorable “balloon” cake pops for Thomas to pull down the tracks to Joe’s party.
Joseph was so sweet to all of his guests, especially the youngest, our little neighbor, Noah. I was so proud of his lovely manners.
Later in the week we had friends over for a cookout and the kids got pretty messy in the slightly wet sandbox and newly cleaned up back yard.
“Oh, yeah, I guess I DO have dirty hands.” LOL
Even though it is still pretty chilly here (Spring, where ARE you?!), we still make sure to get outside to play. It was about 43′ the day I snapped this portrait of Abbey. . . she had just finished having a giant fit about the fact that it was cold, and that she had to wear a helmet while she rode her bike.

I got a couple cute snapshots of the kids at the park this week, too.
That was OUR Week. How was YOURS?
We are taking (at least) a photo a day to keep a record of our year. Join us at any point during the year and start sharing your own daily photos!
Today, I am writing on Natural Parents Network, regarding the power of play.
Play is Love
At dinner this evening, Abbey stopped eating, wiped her mouth, and took a drink of water. Very solemnly, she asked for my attention:
“Excuse me mommy. . . I love playing with you. When I play with you, I fall in LOVE with you – like Cinderella falls in love with her Prince when they’re dancing in their story!”
I was speechless. I just reached over and cupped her beautiful face in my hand and kissed her.
But I’m so often wrapped up in the household care routine that I forget to play. Come read more about why it’s so important to play with your kids, and how I resolved to be more playful, at my post today on Natural Parents Network: The Power of Play – A Wake Up Call.
Just a reminder that the Natural Parents Network is collecting any and all every day photographs demonstrating different perspectives and parts of natural parenting for their online Flickr pool, and that there is a contest being held with amazing prizes to win!
This contest ends at the end of April, so submit your photos soon and make sure to vote for your favorites!
