RECIPE: ADAPTOGENIC INNER BEAUTY ELIXIR
If you've been following me for awhile, it's no surprise to you that I'm a inner, outer girl. I believe that what we choose to nourish our bodies with, physically, but also emotionally / mentally is a direct reflection to how we look on the outside. Everything that we see in the mirror, and I mean everything, is made of cells, and energy. Therefore, the foods that we choose to eat build, protect and nourish our skin cells and build collagen (or not), and the same food feeds our endocrine system that dictates our brain functioning, hormones, and everything in between. Not to mention our gut health, which is our second brain, and pretty much the controller of our bodies, and mind. We're more bacteria than we are human, therefore if we don't feed the good bacteria, we're in for a wild ride. This is an over simplification of all the processes that go on in our body, that not only allow us to survive, but to survive from the inside out.
All of this to say, we are what we eat. What you ate an hour ago, is helping your cells replicate right now. Not to get too deep, but it's something we can't deny. If you're unhappy with your skin, hair, overall look, weight, body composition, vibrancy... it comes down to 1) Food and 2) Your mind. I could go on, and on about this topic, but today I want to share one of my favourite inner beauty elixirs.
As the temperatures cool down, and we settle into this beautiful season of grounding, reflection, inner work, and hibernation, our bodies call and ask for more warming, comforting and high vibe energetic foods. To gain this comfort, we don't have to reach for unhealthy foods, which will no doubt only leave you feeling anything but grounded. But to foods that will both uplift us, yet provide us with deep nourishment down to our cellular core.
Enter in my warming, grounding and beautiful inner beauty elixir, that has adaptogens that uplift, or help you ground. This is the beauty of adaptogenic herbs and tonics, they work synergistically with what your body needs, and only your body. Essentially, they know what you need more than you do.
Couple adaptogens with fat rich nut / seed mylks that are rich in minerals, and brain enhancing fats, and coconut butters to provide you with metabolic fuel and nourishment, well this cup is pretty much a cup of bliss.
