and new cherry-blossom, salmon coloured booties
For approximately 2-4 weeks, we've been treated to scenic views of pretty cherry blossom tree-lined streets. These same cherry blossoms instigated my recent shoe purchase: a pair of blush pink leather peep-toe booties from Dune.
This weekend I noticed the majority of cherry blossom flowers had fallen from their trees and littered the streets, and my back garden - a clear sign that spring has been and gone and summer temperatures are well on the way; it’s nearly time to really get our skin out girls! *gasp*
As a nutritionist, you’ll know I’m a firm believer that what we put into our bodies reflects not only in our general wellbeing, but in our skin as well. Of course there are no special foods that guarantee you that summery healthy glow and clear complexion, however, I am an advocate of consuming a good portion of healthy fats as part of a varied and balanced diet to support good skin health - not all fats are the enemy! For this reason, I often make my ‘fatty salad’ to take to work for lunch; a quick, easy and tasty salad full of all my favourite healthy fats, which are rich in mono-unsaturated and/or the polyunsaturated omega 3 fats, and does not include freakin' coconut oil might I add: salmon; avocado; nuts (toasted pine nuts and almonds); omega seed mix; and extra-virgin olive oil (I made an olive oil-based dressing using white wine vinegar and dijon mustard).
There’s no recipe as such; I’d suggest just adding any of the above sources of healthy fats to your own salad, or if you’re not a salad person, just add them to your favourite meals - I sometimes add a hard boiled egg if time allows too! In the words of Madeleine Shaw………..#GetTheGlow
