Hormone Health With Non-Toxic Skin Care+Detoxing With Dry Brushing

It seems like everywhere we look lately- blogs- magazines, Instagram- people are talking about safe, non-toxic skin care. And I love it! I love that people are finally catching on and getting on the non-toxic bandwagon. You can even find amazing products at stores like Target, which is so flippin’ cool. After all, our skin is our LARGEST organ and instantly soaks up whatever we lather on it and then, whatever we put on it, goes STRAIGHT to our bloodstream. So, we should be pretty careful with what we use on our delicate skin, don’t ya think? In fact, your skincare routine could be messing with your hormones- think weight, sleep, + energy! Many companies use nasties such as formaldehyde, lead, parabens, and diethylene glycol- which is bad news for our central nervous system and is also known as a toxin for our liver and kidneys. All of these chemicals…

3 Breakfast Recipes I’m Loving Right Now

So, is this the never-ending winter? I believe it is. I also believe we chose the wrong week to go to Mexico (we came back to a snow storm!)- we should have went this past week! Whatev, what are ya gonna do? Since coming back and getting back into routine, I’ve found that my ice cold smoothie bowls in the mornings just aren’t cutting it anymore. Because it’s cold AF outside. And snowy. And rainy. And just gross. So, I’ve started experimenting with some warmer, cozier, quick breakfasts + snacks and I want to share these with you guys!

The Skinny on Healthy Fats + How to Cook with Them

Alright, listen up. By now, we (should) all know that fat doesn’t make you fat. We need healthy fats for our brain health, cells, hormonal health, skin, energy, sleep, weight control, blood pressure, gallbladder and liver function- pretty much everything. For so long, fat was feared by everyone because a bunch of jank studies were done in the 1970s telling people that eating fat would lead to heart disease, obesity, and high cholesterol. We all know now that that’s far from the truth. In fact, eating more healthy fats (in conjunction with getting rid of processed crap like refined carbs+sugar) will actually make you a fat burner and NOT a sugar burner, like most people are. By consuming more good-for-you fats, you’ll stay fuller longer, add flavor to your meals, have more energy, and burn more fat in the meantime- all while fueling your body with the nutrients it needs…
