Here is what a typical day on my glowing skin diet looked like this week. I focused on eating the rainbow of veggies, threw in anti-inflammatory spices, and chose lean protein with healthy fats.
A green smoothie and a cup of coffee with vanilla almond milk creamer
Harvest snaps or raw veggies with hummus
High protein Greek yogurt topped with pepitas, chia seeds, blueberries, and strawberries
apple with peanut butter and cinnamon
Enchilada quinoa! I love this one from Crème de la Crumb. I substitute a little one serving sized cup of plain Greek yogurt for the cream cheese and go light on the shredded cheese topper.
Side salads are dinner staples in our house. We like to have one already made in the fridge with romaine, carrots, bell peppers, and celery. I top mine with some balsamic and evoo or Bolthouse Farm Yogurt Dressing. I love the ranch, honey mustard, and salsa ranch. They are super low calorie and fat with a ton of flavor. Yum!
If I am really craving something sweet I have been loving a glass of dark chocolate almond or cashew milk. If you are feeling extra, blend it up with a frozen banana.
I have been trying to limit coffee to the morning, but sometimes need an afternoon pick me up. I drink green tea and water all day. I will talk more about my favorite hydrators and daily drinks next week.
What are some of your favorite glowing skin recipes?
