Love your body, Eat Better and Feel beautiful!

 Inspired by the Book: Love Your Body, By author: Talia Fuhrman

Let’s talk about beauty! How is beauty defined? long hair? Bid luscious lips? beautiful body? Well, yes, but it is a lot more complicated than that. Physical Beauty is subjective; what everyone considers beautiful can be different. What defines beauty has changed throughout the ages, too! What is considered beautiful now is different from what was considered beautiful in other time periods.

If you want to look beautiful, there are millions of resources out there on how to do so ( go to Sephora, watch makeup Youtube videos, read beauty magazines…etc). The truth is just because you look beautiful, does not mean you feel beautiful. Looking beautiful and feeling beautiful are completely different. Feeling beautiful comes from a place of self-love and self-acceptance that lies deep down within a person.

Feeling physically beautiful is the result of many factors combined together (more will be discussed in future posts). In this post, I want to focus on how nutrition contributes to our physical beauty. When we truly love ourselves, we feed our bodies food that nourishes our bodies and minds and as a result, we feel good and when we feel good, we feel beautiful!

Luckily for us, nature has provided us with all the necessary nutrients that our bodies need so we can feel and look our best!

In order to help you put this into action, I will leave you with one of my favorite smoothie recipes from this book! Talia refers to it as: DREAM IT, BELIEVE IT AVOCALADA GRATITUDE SMOOTHIE!

To make this delicious smoothie, you will need:

1 ripe avocado

2 cups (11 ounces) diced pineapples

2 cups coconut water

2 tablespoons ground chia seeds

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/2 ice cubes (optional)

*Makes two servings (5 cups, 2 1/2 cups per serving)

I hope you get the opportunity to try this very nutritious, body loving, delicious smoothie!

If you want to learn more about the plant-based diet, how to have clear skin and how eating right helps the environment, I highly recommend reading this book.

I will be sharing more of my favorite tips from that book in future posts! Stay tuned.

 

With Love,

MS

    Great article Merns! I will have to try the recipe!
    I completely agree that fuelling our bodies with healthy food makes us feel great, literally from the inside to out! Plant based foods contain many vitamins, proteins, nutrients and minerals that our bodies love and thrive on ❤ And not the mention the mind as well, because unhealthy foods are rich in sugar and fat which leads to addiction and feelings of "crashing" or "low energy" after the sugar high ends. When you put positive energy into your body (a.k.a. healthy food), you radiate positivity outwards!
    Also, when one basis their beauty on appearance, they are basing their self-esteem on other's approval. But this is difficult because we live with ourselves 100% of the time and should learn to love ourselves ❤
