You are What You Eat!
Have you ever heard the saying, “you are what you eat?” Well, if you haven’t… now you have! This saying not only applies to your overall health and nutrition, but to how your skin looks and feels as well. As the largest organ in the body, your skin can benefit from the same nutrition you get from different food groups that have a positive effect on your heart health and other organs. Crazy, right?!
Good nutrition is key when it comes to having a happy heart and healthy lifestyle. Instead of constantly being on the latest fad or “quick fix” diet, focus on finding a lifelong, realistic approach to healthy eating, and eat with joy, flexibility, and, most importantly, balance. Instead of cutting out pizza completely, make homemade cauliflower crust with fresh vegetables as toppings. Are you craving something extra sweet for dessert? Make a “chocolate shake” using Shakeology and add a few of your favorite sprinkles. Are you thinking of having a burger and fries for dinner? Make your burger bunless and make homemade sweet potato fries. There are so many ways to be flexible with your nutrition, YET still live a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Allowing yourself the ability to figure out what works for you when it comes to maintaining your health by focusing on your nutrition will only benefit you in the long run.
You know what NEVER goes out of style? YOUR SKIN. Aside from your lifestyle and genetics, what you eat plays a huge role in your skin health and routine. Eating the right foods will not only enhance your natural beauty, but also help minimize unwanted wrinkles, acne, inflammation, and many other skin conditions. If you want that dewy, youthful glow all year round, then you have to focus on not only what you put on your skin, but what you fuel your body with. Drinking Diet Coke and eating fast food isn’t going to get you the skin you’ve always dreamed of no matter how strong your skincare routine is.
Taking control of your nutrition plays a huge role in your mental health. Properly fueling your body with the nutrients needed to get you through the day allows you to be in the right headspace all day long. What we fuel our body with makes all the difference and directly impacts the function of your brain and well-being. Eating high-quality foods that contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants will nourish the brain in a positive way. Positive attitude = a happy YOU!
Your nutrition plays a huge part in what makes you, YOU! You’re worth the time and energy, so put in the work to kick your nutrition into gear! You’ll be happy you did!
