The ingredients in this Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade are giving me flashbacks of my organic chemistry class in college...The WORST! Most of the ingredients in this brow pomade are synthetic and probably best to avoid, let’s see why🔎
❗️Polyethylene is the most common plastic and is used in cosmetics for its ability as an adhesive, but could be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane which is a probable carcinogen (causes cancer)
❗️Isododecane is a synthetic hydrocarbon used as a solvent. According to its Safety Data Sheet, it’s flammable in its pure form and if disposed, would need to be classified as a hazardous waste. And it’s used in makeup?!!
❗️Propylparaben is a preservative that may mimic estrogen and is potentially harmful to the endocrine system. Europe has even restricted the concentration that’s allowed to be in products
Eeek! Swap this out with the @plumescience nourish and define brow pomade. It’s rated 0 by @thinkdirty, and unlike the Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade, it’s made with 100% natural ingredients that actually help nourish the skin and promote growth. You won’t find any synthetic ingredients in this pomade and it won’t give you flashbacks of your O-chem class either😜

I recently started a 6 week thing where I’m completely eliminating refined sugar, gluten, and dairy from my diet and supplementing that with more of the nourishing and healing stuff. 1/2 of each meal consists of vegetables of all kinds - fermented, colorful, organic, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and nutrient dense goodness! The second half of each meal is split between healthy fats, complex carbs, and high quality animal protein. Personally, I’d like to incorporate more wild fish into my diet. The idea is to incorporate those foods back in one at a time after 6 weeks to see how I feel, and take it from there. Also, experiencing what it feels like to not have consumed processed bullshit over an extended period of time sounds fantasticccc. I’ve strayed away from dairy in a big way for the last 6 years (will only pick on a fancy cheese plate if it’s in front of me!!!) because dairy really messes me up. Eliminating gluten and refined sugar on top of that can be really tough without a support system! My friend Miriam - @everybodybliss - partnered with another functional medicine dietician @fearlessfig and together formed @ourhealthtribe - a community of women making heathy changes together while having access to group calls, meal inspiration, activities, etc! The deadline to join in is tomorrow - anyone down to make moves on your health w/ me??! 😉 Either way, I plan on sharing bits and pieces of my experience here 🌸
Protein packed #ketogenic lunch. Organic steak marinated in lemon grass and fish sauce from @clarksorganicmeats with a side of probiotic Heart Beet Kraut from @livinggoodness and a dollop of Korean Gochujang. Diversity in all its glory.
TOMATOES // won’t go breakin’ your heart. •
The lycopene in tomatoes prevents serum lipid oxidation, thus exerting a protective effect against cardiovascular diseases.
A regular consumption of tomatoes has been proven to decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood.
These lipids are the key culprits in cardiovascular diseases and lead to the deposition of fats in the blood vessels.
Shout out to @smartinthekitchen for this amazingly simple and delicious tomato basil soup! Packed with leeks, a yellow onion, carrots, stewed tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, and is dairy free! Vegan option is totally doable by using vegetable broth instead of chicken stock. Topped with @jshhydroponics_jshmicrogreens ‘Thai Cowboy’ microgreens. You can find these guys at the @urbanharvesthouston farmers market on Saturdays from 8-12.
Made what my husband says is his favorite meal so far! Pan seared seasoned chicken thighs, then reduced mushrooms and shallots in a rosé. Put the chicken back in the pan and baked everything for 30 minutes. Served with steamed bok choy and boiled cauliflower seasoned with a little salt and turmeric.
