Nothing beats saving money on costly makeup and body care products!
As a woman, I have purchased my fair share of very expensive lotions, potions and make up products. Worse part is, they were all toxic! I didn’t know this at the time, but as I started learning more and more about health and wellbeing, I learned that those expensive over the counter products were truly damaging my skin and creating an internal toxic mess! Yikes!
And that’s why I love do-it-yourself beauty care projects. Cost effective and non-toxic beauty care can be made in the comfort of your own home.
Below, I share a quick how-to video on making your own eyeliner using activated charcoal!
Activated charcoal is an awesome supplement! You can find it in most health food stores for under $10! It’s typically used to help combat the stomach flu or any other stomach upsets. So, it’s definitely something I would recommend you keep on hand at home 😉
But…not all of my clients get as exited about kale as I do, mainly because they are unsure how to prepare it and use it in recipes.
A lot of people can get turned off by the bitterness of kale. And yes…kale is definitely a bitter leafy green. But the bitterness actually helps to cleanse the liver! How great is that?
Kale is loaded with a ton of essential minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Plus, it contains vitamin K. A vitamin essential for building your bones and keeping them strong!
In this recipe, I created a deliciously sweet dressing using raw honey. The honey helps to balance out the bitterness. Organic raisins are added for some extra sweetness and texture and heart healthy creamy pine nuts add delicious flavour and balance.
This recipe is SO easy to prepare and requires minimal ingredients. Its become a weekly staple in my house. In fact, I crave this salad frequently.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Watch my quick video as I show you how to prepare it.
1 large bunch black kale, washed and de-stemmed and broken up into pieces
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/3 cup thompson raisins
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp raw honey
Juice of 1 lemon
Mix dressing ingredients in a bowl using a whisk. The honey is quite sticky, so it may require a few minutes of stirring and whisking.
Add all salad ingredients to a large bowl and add in dressing. Allow salad to sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the kale to slightly wilt and absorb the dressing.
I fully embrace getting older, but I just don’t want it showing up on my face!
Wrinkles, age spots, drier skin….this can all be avoided with the right diet and supplementation!
Yes…that’s right. AVOIDED!
You know that saying, “You are what you eat!” Well….it’s true. If you’re eating hydrogenated vegetable oils, a ton of sugar, drinking coffee, consuming gluten and dairy, you could be aging faster!
All these foods deplete your body of vital nutrients. Without these nutrients, your skin and your body starts to break down. Your skin loses its suppleness, it becomes drier and more scaly, wrinkles appear faster and your bones and joints start to ache.
So what do we do?? And what is it in the first place that’s causing us to age?
Watch my quick video below where I share WHY you’re aging and WHAT to do about it!
