These two books started it all


Seven years ago, I soaked up every single word in these two books (lots of underlining and highlighting 🤓) and I radically changed my skincare & beauty routine, my eating habits and my whole lifestyle.

Within 30 days, I surprisingly lost a few pounds (which wasn't even my goal), said goodbye to acne, rosacea and my super oily skin. And I no longer felt drained! I was shocked at how much more energy I had throughout the day!

Of course there were setbacks all by the way but I’m grateful I kept going and developed my own healthy habits that work for me (and you will, too!)

My biggest takeaways from these two books...

Eat REAL food

Even if you can't eliminate all processed foods from your diet, start with stepping away from ONE thing. It could be soda (or pop, as we Canadians say it), candy, white bread, pizza... anything you know you're consuming too much of that has no nutrients at all.

Get in the habit of READING LABELS.

I know this can be a drag, but it literally takes 5 seconds (or less). If the majority of ingredients on the list of any product you hold in your hand contains words a) you can't pronounce, and b) has at 10+ more letters in its name = it's heavily processed. Your body naturally won’t know what to do with it and your body will end up paying for it in the long run.

Switch to NON-TOXIC beauty & skincare products.

I'll elaborate more about this in a future post, but in the meantime, check out EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database for quick tips on using safer products. Because what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put in it! 
By committing to these 3 principles alone, you can be closer to feeling better in your body. And who wouldn’t want that?
