How to Not Feel Restricted on a Healthy Lifestlye. 

I talked about how to make a diet your own here and today I wanted to follow it up with tips on how to not feel restricted on a healthy lifestyle.

When you follow a specific boring plan it can definitely feel restricting. Some people fall off and now some people go it IIFYM which is okay, but some people don’t want to eat processed foods and then counting macros becomes a lot of work. That is where, hopefully, some of these tips come in to help out:

1. Add Super foods: You’d be amazed at the difference this can make it making your healthy lifestyle more fun. The only thing is only if super foods are in your budget at the moment, you can get good deals though. It can easily transform your berry smoothie into acai bowl or your normal apple at lunch to a handful of delicious mulberries. I love doing this with my diet all the time.

2. Add Toppings: Instead of drinking your green drink put it in a bowl and add coconut flour, coconut shreds, and dried fruit. BOOM! If your doing a “boring” salad every day add toppings or make your dressing. It really makes it all so much better.

3. (Sweet tooth People) Don’t be afraid to make your meals dessert. Instead of having tofu and broccoli, make a tofu chocolate pudding with cucumber slices for dipping or instead of a salad with a tomato based dressing make your salad with greens, dried and fresh fruit with a mango based dressing.

4. (Savory People) Keep spices on hand. Take your steamed veggies add nutritional yeast, garlic, and real salt. Bam, pizza veggies. Instead of fruit based smoothies, make creamy veggie soups like cucumber avocado soup or tomato soup with hemp seeds and chia seeds.

5. Make Subsitutes: You can google and find a substitute for anything. Banana ice cream vs. Regular Ice cream, Mulberry Blueberry vs. Regular cereal, and so on. So many great ideas.

I hope this helps you stay on your journey!
Be kind to yourselves,

Green Juice as SkinCare 

Hey guys! Today I wanted to come at you with a recipe which I know everyone loves. 

I also wanted to say how amazing green juice can be for your skin. Carrots give you a hefty dose of beta-carotene which gives your skin a tan glow look, and beets which give your skin a beautiful color. The high dose of alkalinity and deep leafy greens give you a large dose of minerals which nourishes the skin. 

So as great as skin products are (and I do love skin products!) never neglect the power of working from the inside out😊. 

  

Skincare Juice:

~5 Carrots 

~1 Lemon (with Skin)

~1 Head Argula

~1 Inch Tumeric

~2 Small Cucumbers

Run through your juicer, and add some stevia to sweeten it up and make it taste good. Also you can add green powder such as Garden of Life Perfect Food or Healthforce Vitamineral Green, which I do, to add extra greens and nutrition. 

What foods do you include in your diet for glowing healthy skin? 

Enjoy!!!!

Best packaged Foods: Nut Butters

Here are my favorite Nut Buttes based on health and taste. Nut butters are like the tastiest thigs ever so I was excited to do this post. 😜

1. Artisana Cocoa Bliss: So I would not consider this the healthiest nut butter ever but if your a raw vegan and love chocolate this stuff is sooooooo good!  

2. Pili Nut Butter: Honestly, so creamy and satisfying.   

3. Destiny Sprouted Almond / Pumpkin Seed Butters: This brand is the most easily digested nut butters I have found, and these are my favorite flavors.    

 4. Rawmio: How could I do a post without mentioning this?! Honestly, crack.   

5. Artisans Cashew Butter: I love cashew butter so creamy and sweet. Sooo good.   

6. Essential Living Brazil Nut Honey Butter: So sweet and rich. I love it when I’m having cravings. Reminds me of the peanut butter and honey and sandwiches I had as a kid. 

 
So now it’s time for me to get a spoon and a big jar of nut butter 😜. 

Please tell me your favorites. 🙂
