Did you know that food can be instrumental when it comes to maintaining both physical and mental health? There are actually 4 foods that help manage anxiety and are a good place to start if you are wanting to learn how what you eat affects how you feel. These foods work their wonders by helping you get enough nutrients for your neurotransmitters to work the way they should to lowering your blood pressure. While food won’t solve all anxiety problems, it can definitely help ease them!

  1. Almonds: These nuts have huge health benefits because they contain zinc, which helps you keep your mood balanced, and healthy fats for your neurotransmitters, and iron for brain activity. When your brain is tired, it can cause you to feel anxious.
  2. Water: Hydrating is so important because even the littlest bit of dehydration can have a huge impact on your energy and mood! Keeping hydrated helps keep your body feeling regulated and leads to lower levels of stress.download
  3. Eggs: Breakfast is so important, especially if you eat eggs! They are packed with B vitamins that help your brain be at its best, and they contain nutrients that help keep your brain from becoming exhausted and irritable.
  4. Avocados: Avocados are a super food! They are so good for your overall health because of their fiber and healthy fatty acids and vitamins, and they are also great for your brain! They have lots of potassium which helps lower your blood pressure and provide nutrients for your neurotransmitters.

Help manage your stress by eating yummy food!

Go Nuts for Nuts!

Snacking can be the root of all evil. I snack when I’m bored, I snack when I’m doing homework, I snack when I’m not hungry, I snack ALL the time!  When you’re on a diet, just trying to eat healthy, or working out a lot, snacking can ruin all your hard effort.  Luckily, there are a few foods that are perfectly healthy to snack on.  There are a variety of nuts that are great for your body and have a handful of health benefits.  Keep on reading to find out what you should chow down on for your next snack! Chelsea Crockett- almonds

All nuts are pretty equal when it comes to calories. Although the fat content is high in nuts, it contains the healthy fat that your body needs.  A serving size can typically be measured by a handful and will fill you up.  For the healthiest option, avoid nuts that have been roasted in oil.  Instead, eat them raw or dry-roasted.  A few of my favorite nuts are almonds, peanuts, and pistachios.  They’re so great for a snack on-the-go or paired with a sandwich for lunch!

All nuts contain different vitamins and nutrients that are great for your skin, heart, and overall health. Almonds contain vitamin E, which is known to help improve the appearance of your skin.  It is also a heart healthy nut.  Listen up ladies, pistachios are known to keep hormones in check when you’re on your period!  They also contain fiber and potassium.  Other healthy nuts include walnuts, cashews, and macadamia nuts.

Next time you need something to snack on, reach for a handful of nuts!   Your body and stomach will thank you for it!

Love,

Vitamins do not only have certain health benefits such as boosting your immune system or providing energy; but, they also help in improving your skin.  Many of the vitamins you take in daily are doing wonders for your skin and you don’t even know it!  I’m here to bring these benefits to your attention so you can make sure you’re getting what you need for flawless skin!

  1. Vitamin A.  This one applies mostly for adults, but is still beneficial for us teens!  Vitamin A helps reduce the wrinkles on your face.  It also helps diminish acne and replenish dry skin, as well!
  2. Vitamin B.  You can’t go wrong with a cream or lotion that contains vitamin B as an ingredient.  It helps moisturize your pores and reduce irritation… what more could you ask for?
  3. Vitamin C.  This one will be useful for the sunny seasons coming up!  Besides the obvious fact that it boosts your immune system, vitamin C helps reduce the amount of sun damage on your skin.  Chelsea Crockett - TanningIf you can’t beat the heat, vitamin C also helps repair your sunburnt skin tissue :).
  4. Vitamin E.  This is also perfect for the summery months ahead!  This can help reduce the effects of the sun on your skin; so, don’t be afraid to lay out on the beach for a couple of hours :).  Eating foods high in Vitamin E works to prevent early aging, as well.
  5. Vitamin K.  This vitamin is perfect to brighten up your eyes.  It’s known for reducing those unwanted dark circles.

 

Good luck! – Chelsea

After a long summer of being in the sun, our skin could use some pampering.  A great way to relax and nurture your skin is with a DIY pumpkin facial mask!  Half a cup of canned pumpkin has 953 mg of vitamin A in it. With its wrinkle-fighting properties and tons of vitamins, this orange fruit soothes and hydrates tired skin.

Chelsea Crockett - Pumpkin Face MaskSome of us are getting older and probably won’t be trick or treating for Halloween.  Wouldn’t it be fun to have some friends over for a mini spa party?  Especially because Halloween is on a Friday this year!  Have your friends bring some snacks, you provide the drinks and the ingredients for the DIY pumpkin mask. Everyone at the party could mix their own pumpkin mask and then apply to their face!  Be sure to snap some pictures because I’m sure you’ll look awesome with pumpkin smeared all over your faces :).

Here is a recipe you could try.  Feel free to look up others online and have fun!  The ingredients you will need are: 2 cups of canned pumpkin, 4 tablespoons of unflavored yogurt, 4 tablespoons of honey, and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.  Combine ingredients, smooth onto face, and relax for 10 minutes.  Then, rinse off mask with warm water.

If you have another recipe, feel free to share it with me below!

Happy fall! – Chelsea

Sometimes it’s easy to sit on the couch and eat an entire bag of potato chips; or what about that time you were craving sweets so you ate a whole roll of Oreos?  Our body craves what it can’t have.  Unfortunately, most of us take the simple route and give our body what it wants.  Usually this is the brain wanting that food, not the stomach.  So why does the body crave foods?  This is usually due to a lack of a certain vitamin, salt, or sugar.  Instead of grabbing that bag of cookies, check out this list of foods to satisfy your craving without being unhealthy.Chelsea Crockett- food pyramid

  • Chocolate:  Your body is lacking magnesium.  Instead, try nuts/seeds, veggies, or fruit.
  • Sugary Foods:  Your body may need carbon, sulphur, or phosphorus.  Try eating a food high in protein and/or vitamin D, like chicken or a cheese stick.  If you really need to satisfy that sweet tooth, aim for raisins or cranberries.  They have just the right amount of sweetness to kick that craving.
  • Carbs (Pasta, Bread): Your body needs nitrogen!  Go for any high protein food.  This includes any type of meat, beans, or nuts.
  • Oily Foods:  Start drinking your calcium!  Try drinking a glass of milk or enjoying a yogurt or cheese stick.
  • Salty Foods: Your body is lacking chloride and/or silicon.  For this craving, try fish or a handful or nuts.  Go for protein!

Next time you have a severe craving, remember these simple changes.  It takes 21 days to break a habit, so next time you go for that cookie, try dried fruit or a cheese stick.  Soon enough, those regular cravings will be cravings of the past!

Love,

Chelsea

Summer is all about staying fit and eating right.  This is a hard thing to do when your pantry is filled with lots of salty snacks!  What you might not know is that there are many healthy alternatives to substitute for chips and other treats that taste just as good and benefit your body!

Chelsea Crockett - Sweet Potato Chips  Although chips are very delicious, they definitely aren’t the best thing for you.  Instead of potato chips, try sweet potato chips.  They are a high source of vitamin A and are much better for you than potato chips.  Along with their reduced fat, they are surprisingly very tasty! Another route to go would be rice cakes.  They contain less fat and less calories.

Most people find popcorn as a fattening and unhealthy snack.  But it’s not the popcorn that’s full of calories, it’s the toppings.  Toppings such as salt, butter, or cheese are full of fat and sodium.  As long as you stick with just the popcorn, or at least a small amount of toppings, it’s pretty much an all-around healthy snack.

Now anyone could have guessed these, fruits and vegetables.  Although they’re very different from chips, everyone needs their daily dose of nutrients and vitamins.  These are, of course, some of the healthiest foods you could eat.  Remember, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

Hey darlings!

Do you ever get frustrated with having short hair? Do you get tired of waiting months and months for it to grow to the length you want? Today I am going to fill you in on the three secrets of growing your hair long and strong! 

Tip#1:

Take vitamins! Vitamins give your hair strength which helps prevent breakage. When your hair starts getting split ends, it causes it to break off and get shorter. Vitamins also strengthen your immune system which promotes hair growth. A supplement I recommend is Biotin, which is a naturally occurring B-vitamin. It renews the follicles and roots of the hairs that are already growing. It gives you thicker, fuller, and healthier hair!

 Tip#2:

Drink lots of water! Drinking water increases the amount of moisture in your hair. Water makes up approximately one fourth of the weight of a strand of hair and when hair has the proper amount of water, it will respond by being strong and shiny. Also, Water is just plain healthy for you! By upping your water intake, you are making your body healthier, which will make your hair healthier.chelsea crockett water

 Tip#3:

Give yourself a scalp massage! By massaging your scalp, whether it is in the shower while you are shampooing or just sitting on the couch watching TV, Can increase the blood flow throughout your scalp and stimulate hair growth! chelsea crockett shampoo
