Client Recipe: Sugar Body Scrub for Winter Skin

What you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body. That’s why when I lead a cleanse, like my recent Cleanse with Benefits program, I make sure to talk about skin care, and how important it is to avoid toxins there too. This time around, my client, Meryl Paspa, an esthetician, offered to share one of her favorite DIY skincare recipes with us. It’s luxurious and effective, so I had to share it with you. If you’re dealing with winter skin that’s dry, scaly, and itchy, this body scrub will help. Meryl says that sloughing off dead skin on the outside will make way for your skin’s moisture to come through, and healthy, younger looking skin as a result. Sounds good to me! Ingredients: 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup coconut oil 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1+ teaspoon olive oil (optional, this gives it more slip) (all organic, if possible) Preparation: 1. Warm the coconut oil in a small saucepan until it’s liquid. Allow to cool. 2. Mix all ingredients together until all the large lumps are gone. The back of a fork works well to mash the lumps. 3….

Eat that cookie, drink that prosecco!

  I’m over the white-knuckle nutrition approach to holidays. The shame and regret that I hear around the dinner table makes sharing a meal far from nourishing. And sad to…

Dirty Little Secrets to Surviving Holiday Parties

It is possible to maintain your nutritional style and even thrive your way through the party season—just follow these tips! Eat first. Counting on your holiday office party to serve healthy food won’t always work, so be prepared. Eat something before the party begins to keep your blood sugar even and help you keep your resolve. If you walk in feeling hungry, you’ll end up having that extra cookie, or driving too many crackers into the gooey dip. Instead, eat a healthy protein at your desk or before you leave the house. The snack will stabilize your blood sugar and improve your personal staying power. Almonds, walnuts, nut butter on celery, a few bites of animal protein, or a Nutritional Style® smoothie all are great options. Choose whole foods. If you can manage to eat only or mostly whole foods when you go out, you’ll be ahead of the game the entire holiday season. Whole foods are foods with just one ingredient, such as celery, nuts, carrots, salmon, salad, and so on. That means avoid anything baked, goopy, creamy, oily, cheesy, or fatty, especially if you don’t know the ingredients. If you have to compromise, choose something that’s high in…
