So these past three days on the Juice Because 9.0 Juice Cleanse have been really fun, and testing for me as I normally eat so much in a day. Surprisingly, but certainly not ironically, I was left full and fulfilled after each and every juice but for very distinctive reasons.
Hey guys, so I have had a couple of requests from a few people asking me to talk about what I buy at the grocery store and market. This post is going to seem long, but I swear this list is the simplest way for me to show all of you what I eat, and how I purposefully set up my grocery trips.
One of my go-to gals, Michelle Elizabeth Menard- damn that sounds good, asked me to write for her and to all of you beautiful people about what I keep within arms reach of the kitchen, and in my pantry!
Over the past two years I have completely eliminated products from my hair care regime apart from three from Lush (R&B Hair Treatment, Shine So Bright, Hair Doctor). My whole life my mama has repeatedly been telling me "Maria, you have beautiful hair, I wish I could have that hair, everyone does", but me being young and naïve I took her words for granted and dyed my hair quite a lot which led it to not be the healthiest - some may not agree. It took me awhile to realize the great potential my hair does have, and even longer to realize that the foods, fluids and products that I was consuming and using did indeed have a positive or negative impact on my hair.
Sometimes I miss home, become overwhelmed, get stressed and angry, and yes, that more than often upsets me, makes me sad, or makes me angry. So I eat. And I eat a lot, but I eat a lot of the right things, at the right time. It is so important to me to eat well, and clean. .. let me stop you right there- eating clean does not mean boring, and plain!
What are we so afraid of? It's shocking how often people tell me not to eat avocados, or nuts or oils but I have to tolerate watching them eat their food of choice without expressing myself (I chose not to as my passion turns into rage).
