You might be passing up on brunch with your girlfriends this weekend, but you can still prepare delicious and healthy food at home.
Because we believe it is essential to take care of ourselves from the inside out, we want to help make sure all of our DashBabes are eating for beauty no matter where they are!
Try a smoothie.
In the morning, we love to load up on fruits and veggies with a delicious smoothie, plus they are so easy to make! Toss your favorite fruits, vegetables, and any smoothie booster (like protein or chia seeds) into a blender, and you are good to go.
Choose a berry full of antioxidants like blueberries or raspberries. Antioxidants are great for your skin and health because they may have disease-fighting properties. Then, pack it full of leafy greens by using a big handful of spinach or kale. These will fight off inflammation and add additional vitamins and minerals for healthy hair and radiant skin.
Finally, try adding in a scoop of organic plant-based protein and non-dairy milk. You will be full, energized, and ready to tackle your to-do list!
Enjoy healthy snacks.
You can create delicious, yet easy, snacks with pantry staples that will help your beauty shine through.
Homemade guacamole is full of healthy fats, and you can put it together in just a couple of minutes. Combine two avocados with a few tablespoons of your favorite salsa. Then enjoy it with veggies and tortilla chips.
Roasted chickpeas are a great way to eat some energizing vitamins, minerals, and protein. Try this simple recipe. If you are not someone who enjoys cayenne pepper, skip it and use smoked paprika or your favorite seasoning.
Staying hydrated is key.
Make sure you are still staying hydrated by drinking enough water. Water helps flush out toxins to keep skin clear and hydrated. Add in some lemon, and cucumber for a refreshing spa-like flavor.
While you are cooking, go ahead and treat yourself with a mask from your kitchen.
Mash together 1/2 an avocado, with olive oil and honey for a hydrating mask. Leave it on for 10-20 minutes while you enjoy your healthy snack. Rinse with warm water, then follow with your favorite moisturizer.
