The Beauty Detox Solution

Since so many of you requested a photo of me with my new haircut, here ya go!

See my short little ponytail?

It is kind of difficult to tell in these photos, but she put in a lot of layers.  Before it was pretty much one length and very long.  I told her that I wanted to look more grown up, so I guess this is my mature look.

The reason why I didn’t post a picture yesterday was because the girl who waxed my eyebrows sort of ripped off my skin.  Well, not sort of…she completely left the skin above my eyes raw.  It hurts.

I can suck it up and deal with it though since I am a grown-up now and all.


Recently, I read a book by Kimberly Snyder called The Beauty Detox Solution, and I must say, I loved it so much that I couldn’t put it down.   It doesn’t even have anything to do with the fact that Kimberly is awesome and pretty much my girl crush.

Her principles, or Beauty Rules, make so much sense and have influenced some of what I do in my day to day life.

The Beauty Detox Solution Highlights

  • We will slow down the aging process and look younger if we limit our intake of animal protein and increase our intake of plant foods.
  • Dairy is not our friend (no arguments here!).
  • Always eat fruit alone.  It digests very quickly in the body and when we eat it in unison with carbs or protein, it can cause a traffic jam in our bodies. Kimberly’s explanation in the book is very thorough and makes so much sense!
  • Eat tons of greens. She recommends getting your greens in the morning through her glowing green smoothie.
  • Cleanse on an on-going basis through the use of probiotics, digestive enzymes, and magnesium-oxygen supplements.  When we’re cleansed, we get more nutrients from our foods…and we look prettier!

If you’re into nutrition at all- and even if you’re not- this book is definitely worth the read.  And if you need more convincing, check out Vince Vaughn’s endorsement on You Tube. 😉

Have you read any interesting health and nutrition books lately?  Please share! Right now, I am also loving Sara Snow’s Fresh Living and anything by Natalia Rose.

Have a wonderful day!

    I love the Detox Solution, too; it really made a difference to my life! The GGS in the morning and several small tips I follow like you over the day made me feel much better. The recipes at the end of the book make it worth to buy as well.

      I am addicted to the GGS now! It is truly energizing.
