I am ALL about green smoothies lately. Usually I am more of a juice girl but lately green smoothies have been so much better to me. I would change out the mango juice for whole mango but yum! Plus, I LOVEEEE Oh She Glows!
As you know I am all about beauty from the inside out but also there are some products that are immensely helpful! This post is a rundown of both inside and out beauty essentials.
I hope you enjoy this post!
What are your beauty favorites???
How is your guys week going??? This has been a great month for me!:) First, Risen came out. Then, The Young Messiah came out. Next, Gods Not Dead 2 is coming out. Then, Assurgent is coming out. Then it’s Easter. And then I got to California!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED. Like YASSSSS. I grew up there and I have always considered it my home so I cannot wait to go back. It’s gonna be so fun. 🙂
Onto the topic for today. I have always thought a huge sign of beauty and health was bright glowing skin. When I see someone with glowing skin I always think they are just so gorgeous and look so healthy no matter what there size, shape, age or anything else. So today I wanted to share the tips I have learned so far to have healthy glowing skin! 🙂
I hope this helps~
What helps your skin look healthy and vibrant???
Today I want to share a recipe I posted on Instagram. It looked so good that I thought I’d share it over here with exact amounts and benefits:). Without further ado here it is…
Easy Raw Smoothie Bowl:
Today I am going to share an awesome recipe for people with troubled skin. It features probiotics, fiber, greens, protein and minerals. Enjoy! <3
Skin Healing Tofu Scramble:
~1/3 Block Tofu (or Tempeh if you are sensitive to soy)
~ 4c Spinach
~ 1/4-1/2c Raw Sauerkraut
~ Black Pepper
~ (OPT) Real Salt, Avocado, Cold Pressed Oil
Stir fry in pan with a little bit of water or vegetable broth. Enjoy! It’s SO good!
Tofu/Tempeh: These foods are excellent sources of vegan protein. Not to mention in some studies natural forms of soy have been shown to help prevent certain cancers. Tempeh is also full of probiotics and fiber!
Spinach: Full of skin supporting vitamins and minerals. Including vitamin E, C, B, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega 3 fatty acids!
Turmeric: I have talked a lot about spinach but it’s SO amazing for you. Extremely anti-inflammatory. HERE is a link to the PubMed studies on turmeric if that interests you!:)
Black Pepper: Helps with the absorption of turmeric. Also helps improve digestive health.
Raw Sauerkraut: See THIS post. Raw sauerkraut is AMAZING for acne prone skin!
Have a great day!!!
Do you like any of the foods in this recipe? What will you add? 🙂
Today I wanted to talk about my new favorite drinks! I LOVE kevita drinks they are a new fermented coconut water drink. It is awesome because they are all completely sugar free (unlike kombucha) and full of probiotics. They recently came out with a new “tonics” line and I am so excited about them. They are about $3.29 each and are two servings so the price isn’t even that bad. I can’t wait to talk about the benefits of all the new ones!:)
Chili Ginger Lime: This one contains the benefits of chili, ginger, lime and apple cider vinegar. Chili has tons of vitamin C, helps with sinus congestion and digestion. Ginger is FANTASTIC for digestion and settling an upset stomach. Apple cider vinegar has so many benefits! It is great for digestion, cravings and overall health. The taste is not super spicy and is carbonated. All the drinks are sweetened with stevia and some have a tad of apple juice concentrate.
Meyer Lemon: Contains lemon, lemongrass, lavender, apple cider vinegar and aloe. Lemon is great for digestion, vitamin C and alkalinity. Aloe is an AMAZING whole body healer especially for digestion. Lavender is great for stress and calming. I’m yet to see how this one tastes!
Turmeric Ginger: This is by far my favorite of all the tonics! It has 1000mg of turmeric, ginger, cardamom, apple cider vinegar and lime. Turmeric is probably one of the healthiest foods in the world and AMAZING for inflammation. Cardamom is another amazing herb for digestion! The taste is so good if you like turmeric. It is not sweet is is carbonated and savory.
Kale Lemon: I feel like this drink is the epitome of a healthy person stereotype, haha! Kale, lemon and probiotics all AMAZING for you! It all includes spirulina and chlorella which are amazing for your skin, detox and alkalinity. This one tastes really good. It tastes like a carbonated lemonade.
Red Beet: This includes beet concentrate and whole orange concentrate. Beets are an amazing food. They give you a natural glow, are so great for endurance and help constipation. I haven’t tried this one yet but I really want to!
I hope you this gave you some probiotic and drink ideas. Anyway, this post isn’t sponsored or anything but I love sharing healthy living brands that are awesome so you don’t waste money on the bad ones;).
Have a great weekend!
I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s workout:). I think I am going to the gym in a little bit to repeat it! Anyway, today I want to share the number one food I include in my diet to fight acne, where to buy it, what brands and what to look for and meal ideas. I think that should cover it;).
The food is….Sauerkraut. So I know this sounds SOOO gross, but its helped my skin so much. We all know sauerkraut is rich in probiotics but I honestly don’t know why it works so much better than other probiotics but it does. I am definitely not the only one to notice this. Check out Kimberly Snyder or Edible Goddess (Bethanne Wannamaker).
I highly recommend looking for a brand that is RAW. It is super important the enzymes are live and there aren’t other nasty ingredients in it. Some brands I like are Bubbies, Sonoma Brinery, Raw Rejuvenation and Farmhouse Cultures. You can purchase these at health foods stores like Whole Foods and Sprouts.
I promise the taste grows on you. I HATED it when I first started eating and now I honestly totally crave it. I know people say that a lot but it’s true, haha. Some ways to use that cover the taste are listed below:
I have been on such a recipe kick lately! Today’s recipe is probably my favorite. It is honestly so delicious and PERFECT for cravings!!!
Birthday Cake Coffee:
~16oz Almond Milk
~1/4-1/2 scoop Garden of Life Vanilla
~TBS. Sunflower Seeds (Living Intentions)
~2TBS. Lily’s Chocolate Chips
~Stevia (I like Now Foods, but any is good!)
Mix In Blender Bottle.
This is probably my favorite recipe I have ever come up with. The combination of coffee, chocolate, healthy fats and protein makes it SO amazing when you are craving junk!
PS// HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
Of course I was gonna post a chocolate recipe today~ Today I am going to work on the blog, do homework and watch Harry Potter. What a great day:)
What are you doing today:)?
