How to make smart food choices at family dinners & dining out?
At Nourished3, we stand for holistic wellbeing, where self care isn't just about outer care, but a way of life 🌿
We're here to help you make smarter food choices during the fall and winter season, and beyond!
What we eat impacts more than just our physique and mood – it also plays a significant role in our skin's health - one of our personal biggest motivations to keep us mindful of our food choices. However, it's also important to remember that if things don't go as planned, be gentle with yourself, you can always get back on track!
Our tips to make smart food choices
Your body & skin will thank you
🥦 1. CHOOSE WHOLE FOODS
Opt for whole, minimally processed foods as often as possible. Fruits, vegetables and protein are some of the best ingredients to satisfy your appetite and fuel your cells.
🥗 2. MAKE A BALANCED PLATE
A diverse plate is a healthy plate. Allow yourself to indulge in some holiday favorites, but ensure your plate is a balance of indulgence and nourishment.
✨ 3. EAT MINDFULLY
Stay in tune with your body and honor its signals. Instead of rushing, take time to enjoy each bite, pausing when you've had enough. Mindful eating is a combination of indulging in each bite we have, while also listening to our bodies, for a whole nourishing experience.
🍇 4. EAT THE RAINBOW
Different colors often mean different nutrients, so include a mix of fruits and vegetables, the more color, the better. This not only pleases your taste buds and eyes, but also provides your skin with a wide range of essential vitamins and minerals for a radiant glow.
💧 5. STAY HYDRATED
Keep your skin hydrated from the inside out by sipping on water and herbal teas throughout the day. Aim for drinking more between meals and less during meals to avoid diluting your digestive acids.
💆🏻♀️ 6. TREAT YOURSELF TO POST-FEAST T.L.C.
The next day, pamper yourself with a skincare session. This will help balance excess sebum production and maintain your skin's outer hydration, especially after indulging in salty foods or alcohol, which can lead to skin dryness. Using our Clarify & Brighten Face Mask for instance – a perfect blend of active ingredients designed to regulate oil production - will cleanse deep within your pores, and hydrate your skin.
