How to Give Your Skincare a Makeover

Image
We all want our skin to look like a million bucks, but most of us don’t want to spend that much money to achieve it. Here’s a secret, though—you don’t actually have to spend a ton of money on skin care products to reach your skin care goals. If you’re looking to revamp your skin care arsenal without making a big dent in your wallet, read on. I am sharing skincare brands that I love to help you get started. STEP ONE: IDENTIFY YOUR SKIN TYPEKnowing your skin type and concerns is key to establishing a personalized skin care routine. For Dry SkinIf you’re worried about dry skin, build your base around super-moisturizing ingredients that can improve skin hydration levels. Ceramides—a type of lipid that serves as one of the main basis for your skin’s fatty layer—are always a great go-to in this regard. The CeraVe Moisturizing Cream houses three essential ceramides along with hyaluronic acid—another hydration powerhouse—to repair and protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Plus, it’s av…

Egg Fast Day 5

Image
NOTE FOR THE DAY: Most people Egg Fast for 3-5 days at a stretch. By Day 5, many people will be anxious to finish and perhaps, not eat another egg for a while. The Fluffys are a little loony, because we love eggs so much, we could and do, eat them every day. This is the last day in the 5 day Egg Fast program. The BRINNER (Breakfast for Dinner) menu is lovely and filling, making you forget you’re on an egg fast. The Psylli Pumpkin Spice Egg Fast Pancakes with Salted Caramel Syrup is filling and perfect fall food. If you don’t care for a particular meal, feel free to substitute meals, days, or rotations. We tend to lose between 5-7lbs during the 5 day Egg Fast (most of that is water). We transition back to non-Egg Fast food over the next week. Most will see some regain, but if you raise carb levels very slowly, you will be able to maintain most of that loss as true weight loss. We’ve found doing alternate day Egg Fasts (ADF) during the next 5-7 days, helps aid the transition. On alterna…

Egg Fast Day 4

Image
NOTE FOR THE DAY: If it’s eggs we’re doing, why wouldn’t fish eggs work? Fish eggs are PACKED with nutrients: Vitamin B-12, vitamin D3, omega-3 fatty acids, and nutrients that feed our brain (nutrients not found in as high a ratio as other foods). Caviar is nutrient dense, dude! And delicious! Caviar is high in sodium, but it helps to rinse them gently in a cold water bath. Rinsing makes them taste more natural and rinses away much of the dyes used to color the caviar. It’s simple to rinse it: gently place in a fine hand held mesh strainer and dunk in and out of cold water (filtered). Change the water frequently and dunk until no more color leaches into the water. Place caviar and strainer on top of a bunch of paper towels and let it drain. Use immediately! So if not using and entire jar, only rinse the amount of caviar for that meal. Caviar goes great with eggs cooked many ways, especially scrambled, soft boiled and hard boiled. It’s great garnished with a little cream cheese, sour c…

Egg Fast Day 3

NOTE FOR THE DAY: Anytime we talk about butter, just know we mean grass fed butter (Kerrygold or homemade) made from the milk from pastured, grass fed cows. Why? Because according to many, grass fed butter provides superior, healthy fats rich in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid-vital for good weight loss and metabolism), fat soluble Vitamins A, D, K and E, and free from added hormones, antibiotics, and chemicals. New studies show saturated fats are actually good for your body, and in a low carb keto diet, help shift cholesterol ratios toward the large, fluffy, beneficial type of cholesterol.I love grass fed butter because it tastes amazing and makes us feel warm and “comforty.” Additionally, great sources of fat can be found in aged cheeses such as blue cheese, Roquefort, brie and camembert, among others. Naturally aged cheeses are also higher in Vitamin K2, an important analog of Vitamin K that helps direct how Vitamin D and Calcium are used in the body. Here’s a nice read on cheese fro…
