Over the holidays I had a chance to share my love for Barlean’s Seriously Delicious Omega-3s. Since becoming an ambassador, I tried a variety of their products. I am so happy they are a part of our life. Thanks to Barlean’s for sponsoring this post.
Many of you might not be taking fish oil because well, for fear of what it tastes like. Who wants that? I have to admit that my mother used to make us take it when we were young and I remember the fish burps. HA! Who wants fish burps? No one.
Times have changed because Barlean’s has a line of omega-3 supplements for a while but you might remember them as Omega Swirls. They are now called Seriously Delicious Omega-3s because they are! They come in a variety of flavors and even options for all lifestyles.
I was challenged to give a bottle of choice to a friend so that she and her family could share their experience. Two weeks later, after they tried the Key Lime Pie flavor, she shared her experience. My friend was just happy that one single product could be enjoyed by the whole family as opposed to buying different dosages. All her kids enjoyed taking something that was really tasty!
The one they chose was a high potency dose of 1,500mg Omega-3 and EPA/DHA that is creamy by the tablespoon that can be enjoyed on its own or added to smoothies. My friend was truly happy that a supplement could be so tasty and enjoyed by everyone. Barlean’s, we have a winner!
Even though I was challenged to find someone who would not normally take fish oil, my true challenge was to get my husband to try it. He is very picky about many things and telling him that fish oil is tasty is just laughable. Even so, he complied and lovingly accepted the challenge. He was surprised that he tasted no fish even though he was VERY skeptical. He enjoyed the flavor and then questioned the benefits. HA! This is why I take care of my family.
Omega-3s for all Lifestyles
Before you head away sad that there is not a vegan option, stop right there, because there is something for you too! In fact, Barlean’s has something for the vegan, vegetarian, and those who are dairy-free. Here is a list of the labels:
Are you amazed already? You should be. There are several options for VEGAN Omega-3 supplements. I received a couple so that I could share how great they are. Either way, you have benefits of the supplements no mater what lifestyle you are leading.
You will absorb 3 times as much Omega-3s as the normal supplements because of the way Barlean’s has formulated these Seriously Delicious products. There are specific ones for women called Seriously Delicious Essential Woman in Chocolate Mint. It contains not only the omega-3, but also 6 and 9 as well as GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). It helps promote hormonal balance with its added Primrose Oil.
How to Enjoy
The beauty of these products is that they can be enjoyed on its own or they can be mixed in yogurt, smoothies, or more. Check out my Caramelized Pineapple Parfaits. If you have kids that just give you a hard time about taking vitamins and supplements, hide it in their food and they will love it.
Here are just a few examples of the flavors Barlean’s offers:
- Strawberry Banana Smoothie (plant-based)
- Mango Peach Smoothie
- Pomegranate Blueberry (plant-based)
- Lemon and Orange Creme
- Passion Pineapple Smoothie
