Good Green Grub!

I believe in beauty from the inside out. What does that mean? I mean if your skin is constantly breaking out, or your scalp is full of dandruff… chances are your gut isn’t happy. Now let’s get this straight, I am NO doctor- though Dr. Jess has a nice ring to it πŸ˜‰ – but in my experience I have found my skin, hair and nails are much happier when my insides are well fed with good food. Plus I have more energy and feel all around happier.

As we speak, I am in the middle of 30 day super duper healthy clean eating journey. I fortunately do not have any strict dietary needs, so I tend to include things like dairy and gluten in my regular diet. But for these 30 days (then beyond is my personal goal) I will not be eating things like cheese, bread, pasta, wine, coffee… the items I considered to be the “good stuff” before I began this journey.

What is very interesting to me is for the past three weeks I have been without that junk and I find myself craving it less and less. I am actually looking forward to healthy snack like a green apple with freshly ground almond butter or sitting down at the dinner table with a bowl of hearty turkey chili. I feel great, my clothes are fitting better, and I even feel more awake.

My first few weeks have been full of delicious recipes. I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you!

And I just had to share these beautiful veggies with you! I am blessed to have wonderful friends who gifted me with fresh veggies from their personal gardens. Fresh cucumbers from Kelly and fresh banana peppers and tomatoes from Paula! Thank you gals πŸ™‚

Remember to put lots of color on your plate! It’s yummy. I promise. Enjoy!
