Conquering Beauty — Inside Out

Since beginning my holistic journey, the importance of what I put inside of my body became quickly evident to me.

I’m a lactose intolerant, lacto-vegetarian, wannabe/should definitely be vegan (I know… it’s all really tragic). I’m also a really bad vegetarian… confession — I don’t really even like vegetables. There, I said it. Okay, I like some vegetables… do potatoes count? Haha jk but not really. Let’s just say my daily consumption of carbohydrates exceeds what my percent daily values allow me. I’m working on it. In order to receive the true goodness a vegetable has to offer, it’s important to chow down on ‘em raw. And for individuals whom have a less developed taste palette like myself 🙋🏽, a plate of grass just doesn’t cut it for me. Although, I have picked up some recipes along the way on fun ways to spice up the healthy stuff without completely depleting them of their nutrients. I’ll be sure to share soon! 

Anyways, having said all of that, it’s therefore especially important for me to get the vitamins I might be missing out on through daily supplements. Upon request, I’ve put together a small and over-due list of my day to day supplements I've been taking.

Frequency — daily (since fall 2016)

Frequency — as needed

Turmeric — There are many health benefits (anti-inflammatory & antioxidant properties) provided by the mystical and magical turmeric spice. I’ll pop a capsule whenever I feel my skin needs a pick-me-up. Since my hair & nails vitamins contain turmeric, I don’t take these daily. For optimal turmeric absorption, pair the spice with a fat by mixing it in with milk or incorporating the spice in daily cooking.

Yerba Mate — If you’re trying to ditch your coffee habit like I am, Yerba Mate has the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate” all in one beverage!

Kombucha (not pictured) — Is a fermented tea & probiotic that promotes gut health. I could easily down a bottle (or two) of kombucha a day, but I try to limit my daily intake to about a cup a day.

As I’m sure many of ya’ll can relate, I find myself going through periods where my overall diet is whack...which I’ve learned is more damaging than we think because many vitamins are actually depleted by our dietary decisions. For instance, magnesium is depleted by coffee, sugar, alcohol and more! Bottom line, eat wholesome foods and know what you're putting into your body 🥑🍕🍊!
