Trying to eat clean and even sustainably on a tight budget? I know - it sometimes seems like an oxymoron, right? You know I love healthy, fresh, organic foods - I support my local farmer’s as often as possible, and my favorite recipes are filled with leafy greens and fresh fruit. But let’s be real, buying farm fresh, organic produce is NOT cheap. If you want to keep your diet healthy, fresh, and delicious on a budget, I have the solution for you. Check out my two essential lists for shopping organic: The Dirty Dozen (these are foods, that if you have the choice, you should really invest in the organic or Non GMO option) and the Clean 15 (this is produce that is safe enough to buy conventionally grown).
The old saying “you are what you eat” is SO true. Research shows that the foods we eat not only have a huge impact on the health of ourinternal bodies and digestive systems, but that they can also have a massive impact on the health of our connective tissue - and even ourexternal bodies, specifically our skin, nails and nair. That’s why eating a healthy diet filled with what I like to call “Fascia Foods” is a really important part of my lifestyle - and I hope you can make it a part of yours.
Remember when you were young and science fiction films were set in the far distant year of 2020. Well here we are already! Cue every cliché about life speeding up and time accelerating (although westilldon’t seem to have those jetpacks we were promised).
I truly believe that how you spend your morning makes such a huge difference in how you feel and carry yourself through the rest of the day. So I love to start my day with some rituals that work for me - and I hope they will for you too!
