31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge – Day 23
“Commit To Clean Eating For 14 Days”
It’s no secret to anyone what it takes to make wise food choices and what it means to our overall health. Many times if feels daunting though to truly educate ourselves in creative ways of making tasty meals that everyone likes.
I’ve been on a clean eating journey for many years and I still have so much more to learn. What actually started my food overhaul was watching my older sister live with RA. This debilitating disease has taken most of the joy out of her life. She has been bedridden for over 8 years and depends on others for her basic needs in life. When I started to notice career related stiffness in a few joints in my hands I started devouring knowledge about what holistic natural alternatives I had at my disposal to help keep me healthy. Anything I could do to not have to take the drugs that had so many devastating side effects that scared the shit out of me, I was going to do.!!!
Along this journey I have discovered a number of “food mentors” that I would like to share with you. Food as we all know, is “nature’s farmacy”. If we spend our money and time eating as organic and healthy as possible, hopefully we won’t need the pharmaceutical companies not so “healthy” options.
What we’ve been doing for the last 22 days in this challenge has centered around our skin for the most part. As we all know our skin is the largest organ of the body , so everything about the state of our (skin) health is written all over our face ( and body). We can’t separate what we put in our body from what the results will be on the outside. It’s not vain or superficial to want to have a glowing complexion and bright sparkling eyes, it’s a sign of love and caring for one’s self and others.
I’d like to share with you a few of my favorite people in the world of clean eating, women who really walk their talk and are advocates and activists for our society and the global food supply. Most of these women have had very personal reasons for their calling in this arena.
