Eat this when you take Antibiotics (and to Foster a Healthy Gut)

Eat This If You're on Antibiotics Banner

Hiya Lovelies:

As many of you know, I’ve been recovering from pre-pneumonia. Which means I’ll be nursing a cough and feeling a little low on energy for a while. It also means that I had to take antibiotics in order to fight off the infection. And I’ve recently become obsessed with Miso and Yogurt Kefir Parfaits (they’re all over my insta). Those two things might seem unrelated, but trust me when I say that it’s 100% deliberate. Antibiotics may be a rare necessity but they also change the way we should be nourishing our bodies…

The Ultimate Foodie Guide to Healthy Hair

The Ultimate Foodie Guide to Healthy Hair - What you eat can be the difference between dull, thin, brittle locks, or gorgeous, shiny, thick tresses. Here are the best foods for healthy hair!

Hello Lovelies:

I used to have a cabinet full of hair products. I wanted that sexy, healthy hair look. Hair spray? Check. Colour infuse shampoo? Check. Leave in conditioner, deep conditioners, wave spray, shiner spray… check, check, check, check. My collection was extensive. And my main goal was to load up on all the self-care products I could, and spend as little as possible. Today my standards have changed… and so has my knowledge on what truly makes our bodies (hair included) shine.

While there are certainly a ton of products that can give you that luscious, healthy hair look, it’s hard to out-condition a bad diet. Hair products can definitely help our hair shine; but eating the right foods can create gorgeous hair for the inside out.

It’s also worth considering what we’re putting on our hair. Remember, the self-care products we use on a daily basis often expose us to known or probable human carcinogens, reproductive and developmental toxins and endocrine disruptors (source). It’s worth our while to feed our body with kindness, so that it has the tools it needs to provide us with the healthiest glow possible. And cutting down on the products we’re using, whilst ensuring that we select healthier options, can also make all the difference as well.

In short, health comes from the inside out first and foremost. Self-care products should be a secondary way to support and nourish our bodies, from the outside in.

So what should we add to our diets to nourish our bodies and help to create gorgeous, healthy hair?
