A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.

National Nutrition Month

Beauty comes from within.
That's the simple truth. We want to put good things into our bodies for clear skin, healthy hair, bright eyes, a beautiful smile...you get the picture. And our food choices impact the way we look.

"Eat Right With Color" is the theme for March 2011 NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH. Make room for veges, fruit, whole grains, lean protein and dairy. Frozen vegetables and fruit smoothies are a simple way to eat what you need every day. Starting your day with oatmeal? Add fruit! Blueberries are antioxidant, rich in beta carotene and fiber, and a good source of vitamins A, C and E. Benefits of bananas? Their full of potassium, reduce depression and stress and even ward off ulcers. All that from breakfast!
I recommend:
  • Snacking on an apple for a natural tooth cleanser. It removes plaque...you can literally feel the difference.
  • Eating apricots and mangos. They're full of Vitamin C which promote collagen -- reduces wrinkles and protects skin from sun damage.
  • Trying spinach and kale at dinner. These are cancer fighting cruciferous veggies.
For beautiful skin and optimum health, add more color to your diet with suggestions found here.

  3. We have all heard the cliche' "You are what you eat". More and more research is proving this very fact. Evidence has been shown that eating the right foods can help to boost immunity, fight fatigue, and protect your health. This month, take the time to evaluate your plate and set a goal to make sure that you are eating for optimum health.

    In love and light,
