Herb and Avocado Omelet

Poor eggs, they get a pretty bad wrap in some circles. Barring food allergies or intolerance, organic, free-range eggs are actually an excellent source of nutrition.

Some highlights of the almighty egg:                   Egg_colours

  • Excellent source of protein, helping stabilize blood sugar and keep you feeling fuller, longer.
  • Great source of heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids, helping reduce your risk for heart disease.
  • Egg yolks are one of the richest dietary sources of the B-complex vitamin, which directly affects neurological (brain) function.
  • Eggs are high in sulfur, which is essential for collagen and keratin production, leading to strong nails and hair as well as youthful, glowing skin. Sulfur also supports vitamin B absorption and healthy liver function.

Here’s one of our favorite egg recipes over at Eat Clean Health:

Herb and Avocado Omelet

1 egg, 2 egg whites

½ tablespoon EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

½ teaspoon fresh/dried thyme_MG_0044

½ tablespoon fresh/dried basil

½ tablespoon fresh/dried parsley

Dash of turmeric

½ ripe avocado

Black pepper (optional)

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add herbs, and whisk together.
  2. Heat a small saute or omelet pan over medium heat, then add the oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot (be careful not to allow it to smoke), pour in the eggs.

When the eggs are firm, flip over. Add sliced avocado on one half of the omelet. Turn off heat and fold the egg over to serve. Top with black pepper to taste.

Eat Up and Enjoy!

Healthy Foods for Healthy Skin

The face is like a mirror of the body. Whatever is going on internally is going to show up externally, and the face is almost ALWAYS that first place an imbalance is going to appear.

Certain areas of the face are directly related to certain organs of the body. So when skin conditions, such as red patches, blotchiness, under eye bags, flakey skin, acne, rosacea, hyper-sensitive skin, and blemishes show up, it’s actually an indication of much deeper issues. It’s your body’s way of cluing you into what’s going on internally.

And what’s going on internally, is INFLAMMATION. Inflammation is part of the body’s immune system; it’s the body’s attempt at self-protection. When something harmful or irritating enters the body, there is a biological response to try and remove it.

Chronic inflammation is the root cause of nearly EVERY TYPE of disease. It’s the cause of illness, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, rosacea, acne, and even cancer. One of the most important things you can do for both your skin and your overall health, therefore, is REDUCE INFLAMMATION in the body.

Foods that promote overall internal AND external health are:                              

Wild Caught Salmon: High in anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids, wild caught salmon keeps the body and the face supple and radiant. Salmon is also a great source of protein, which is needed to both maintain and repair the skin on a cellular level.

Turmeric: One of my personal favorites when it comes to battling inflammation and promoting radiant skin, turmeric has long been know for it’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. This delicious spice-rack staple also promotes detoxification in the body, leading to a younger, healthier looking complexion.

Melons: Cantaloupe and watermelon are excellent sources of vitamin A, carotenoids, and beta-carotene, which have all been shown to improve skin tone and texture. The high water content also make these fruits a great source of extra hydration for the skin, helping maintain a supple, dewy complexion.

Coconut: Healthy fats, such as the ones found in unsweetened coconut and virgin coconut oil, are needed for the body to absorb nutrients found in fruits and vegetables. Healthy fats also help the body burn fat while helping prevent dryness and wrinkles from forming on the skin. Avocados are also included in this healthy fat category, so if you don’t like one, try the other!

Berries: You already know fruits are a fantastic source of antioxidants and fiber, which are essential for overall health and wellness. Regular consumption of berries, such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries also prevent premature aging of the skin PLUS they fight damage already inflicted from free-radicals.

As you begin to create a healthier daily diet, be sure to stay away from the following foods, which create inflammation in the body, leading to chronic illness, disease, accelerated aging and unhealthy skin:

  • Refined Sugar
  • Processed Foods
  • Soda
  • Hormone-laden animal products
  • Alcohol

Registration for the ‘New Year, New You Detox’ is Open!

Like many people, I used to struggle with weight issues and skin problems. I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin, my complexion was a mess, my energy was sporadic, and my mood was all over the map.

Sound familiar?

Though I didn’t realize it at the time, the foods I was eating were wrecking havoc on my body, my internal health, my mental state and my external appearance. After plenty of trial-and-error, I decided to get serious about getting healthy. I educated myself about the power of food and it’s impact on my body, and I committed myself to getting AND staying healthy, happy, and energized.

And now I want to share that empowering information and support with you.                                              115813122

I believe in the power of clean food. I believe in eating foods that work for your unique body. I believe in the power of detox to improve digestion and overall health. I believe in a healthy eating program that is not about starvation or deprivation. I believe in my one-of-a kind detox program that uses delicious food to detox the body safely and effectively.

A staggering 98% of diets plans and self-directed weight loss programs fail. Here’s why:

When you approach weight loss from a dieting perspective, food becomes associated with negative feelings, restriction, deprivation, and even guilt. That’s not sustainable or enjoyable for anyone.

It’s time to ditch the diet mentality. You don’t need  to starve your body to see the results you want. You need to FEED your body.

Let’s make a pact. Let’s shift away from the ‘diet’ perspective and start thinking of food as NOURISHMENT, ENERGY and VITALITY. Let’s give our bodies the nutrients it needs to flourish, function, and heal.

ARE YOU READY?

As the holidays come to a close and the New Year begins, so does the new YOU. If holiday eating has left you overloaded with sugar, low on energy, and ready to start fresh, today is the day to sign up, shed the holiday pounds, and catapult yourself into the healthiest, happiest possible New Year.

Eat the Rainbow: Part IV

It’s Week 4 of the Rainbow Series and today is all about green.

Green food helps lower blood pressure, improve heart function, reduces cardiovascular disease, and improves vision. And oh yeah, it also improves skin health, leaving you with a radiant, youthful glow. In part, this is due to lutein, the powerful antioxidant found in greens; it’s also attributed to it’s high concentration of chlorophyll, which increases blood flow and oxygen in the body. Green are also loaded with fiber, calcium, vitamin K, and vitamin E.

greenfoods3

Green vegetables like broccoli, spinach, green beans, asparagus, cucumbers, celery, peppers and artichokes are supremely easy to eat on a daily basis. Add asparagus and broccoli to your morning omelet, blend kale, cilantro and cucumber into a smoothie at lunch, and saute Brussels sprouts with coconut oil for a tremendously tasty dinner dish. However you do it, get your greens everyday!

Eat the Rainbow: Part II

Welcome to Week 2 of the Rainbow Series! Today we’re going to cover the nutritional benefits of white food.

White foods, such as mushrooms, cauliflower, onions, and turnips, help lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Plus, their high concentration of quercetin helps reduce inflammation in the body, helping prevent heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. White foods like garlic and onions also provide a wonderful boost to the immune system, helping you stay healthy, even in the midst of cold and flu season.

White-fruits-vegetables

Sneak white vegetables into soups and sautes. White foods are a rich source of fiber, potassium, and magnesium, which support overall health and help prevent illness and disease.
