my journey to health

Recently I decided to change up my diet in a huge way.  Blessed with a fast metabolism I have the ability to eat pretty much whatever I choose and stay the same size, even if it is slowly killing me from the inside out.  When I tell someone that I’m not eating gluten, dairy, preservatives, or sugar right now they look at me like I have ten heads and then spit out some remark on how I’m already too skinny, or I better not be trying to lose weight.  Well I’m NOT.

banish breakouts and reduce wrinkles.. what you eat affects your appearance

It seems to be an ever growing struggle, the amount of time we have to spend in the bathroom and in front of the mirror in our endless grooming routine.  Not only are we wasting time, but it gives our boyfriends/husbands/and men in general the ability to nag at our penchant for being late.  Through a bit of hard research (combing hundreds of beauty magazines, I know, hard life) I have found 8 superfoods that will help your beauty shine from the inside so we can spend less time in the mirror and more time out and about.
