my-visual-heart asked: How many calories are like 48 baby carrots and 40 cherry tomatoes?? :"(
Not enough for you to worry about. If anything, calories should not be counted if their in vegetable/fruit form because they offer you so many benefits: vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc.
I eat a bag of baby carrots. I think it’s like 150 calories for a pound? Maybe less maybe more. But I don’t count it because their good calories, not bad (if that makes any sense).
Cherry tomatoes are even less because they have more water content ( I think), but with that in mind, you still shouldn’t worry about how many calories are in baby carrots or cherry tomatoes. They are the kind of snack you can have in infinite amount if your stomach is capable.
Like Dr. Oz said once, eat as many of the vegetables you can cause you cannot underestimate the benefits.
blonde-ambition22 asked: hiiii love the blog! Do you think that peanut better is good for you? Does this sound like a good lunch? Peanutbutter on honey wheat bread Nature valley honey and oats Baby carrots Thankyou!
It’s always great to incorporate protein into your lunch and diet in general so peanut butter is great but something with less fat and lots of protein are things like chicken breast and fish. Those could also be great instead of having peanut butter on whole wheat, which is good but that sounds more like a snack and not something that’ll give you the energy like something a chicken sandwich or a grilled chicken breast with baby carrots. And I love baby carrots, good source of fiber and vitamin A and beta carotene which is all great.
I would kill for awesome flawless skin but I am was not born genetically pristine looking in general.
Recently I ditched drinking milk from cows cause I read studies and stories on how it isn’t good for women (our hormones can easily waver like a leaf).
DISCLAIMER: I do not like soy milk and it’s been hard but I found a new love in Almond milk. I still miss my cow milk though.
That said, I have seen a difference in my skin, breakout wise. It was well over a month now that I have not had regular cow milk and it looks like that was a good on my part.
I have also been drinking Green Rooibos tea (Numi) and that is also helping, and simply eating cleaner like Kale but my skin is still excessively oily. I also Green Tea with it just to see if I saw a difference. I do.
(I read that Green Rooibos had anti-septic properties and was a natural source of AHAs, and although it does not have as many antioxidants like Green tea, it was worth a try).
My point is, what have you guys done for healthier skin and has it work? Sometimes it is simply genetics and there is no avoiding getting a prescription, but I want to know what are some people’s routines/rituals/habits for healthier skin?

I don’t believe in them BUT it doesn’t hurt to start making small changes in the new year to last a lifetime.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year and hopefully I’ll have better posts by the end of the week!
