2021: The Year Of You

2021: The Year Of You

The year to focus on yourself, and your health while enriching your inner beauty. As a dermatology nurse, I am always looking for the best skin treatments to help my patients put their best faces forward. What I have come to realize is health, beauty and the best version of ourselves starts from within. The foods we eat contain loads of beauty nutrients and can highly affect the way we feel and look. Here is a pro tip: embracing your natural beauty and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be easily achieved with just 28 almonds a day. 28 Almonds have 5g plant protein per serving and are an excellent source of antioxidant Vitamin E and a good source of magnesium. We don’t skip out on our beauty products, so we shouldn’t skip out on nourishing our bodies to feel “Beauty Full” either!

What you eat is as important as the products that you put on your skin. Your diet could improve your skin health from the inside out, so a clear complexion begins with eating a healthful diet.

So when it comes to meal prepping and choosing healthy snacks, reach for a bag of Blue Diamond 

Whole Natural Almonds, a superfood with natural Vitamin E, biotin, and magnesium content that benefits healthy, hair, skin, nails and sleep. Who knew adding 28 almonds a day to your beauty routine could make such a great impact on your life?! I buy the 12 ounce bag of Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds at Target, which makes it easy to snack and work on my inner glow while I’m on the go!

My Favorite Tips for Healthy Snacking


Oh My Gosh! Can we just talk about what a disaster my diet turned into when I had my daughter and time seemed to go flying out the window. I literally would find myself skipping meals, and eating Willow’s leftovers. Let’s just say my diet consisted of a lot goldfish, puffs, blueberries, applesauce, pasta…I mean I would eat whatever was left on the plate. I like to call these mishaps “snaccidents”. So recently I have really focused on getting my diet and my life (lol) together so that I am making healthy choices for myself.  I really love these Fiber One Coconut Almond Protein Bars which I purchased from Walmart. I like to pair them with fresh fruit like apples or almonds throughout the day to help me stay on track. They also really curb my cravings for sweets. Here is how I plan ahead to ensure healthy snacking throughout the day:

  1. I plan snacks for the day, the night before. I tend to put my Fiber One bars in a baggy with my fruit so they are already to go.
  2. I carry snacks with me when I am on the go. This keeps me from buying unhealthy food.
  3. I try to not wait too long in between eating. I usually eat every two hours to ensure my blood sugar doesn’t crash which usually jump starts my cravings for things like potato chips or chocolate.

Tell me what your #fiberoneflavor is that helps you stay on track with your healthy eating. You can buy Fiber One bars from @walmart.
