Back in July, holistic nutritionist, certified yoga instructor and author Kelly LeVeque gave SportsMD readers her thoughts on a variety of women’s health related topics, in conjunction with the #BodyLovesInsiders campaign she championed alongside natural product manufacturer NOW.
As we enter the new year, LeVeque is back with a few tips and bonus materials from her new book Body Love Every Day.
“I’m proud to continue my long-standing partnership with NOW and incorporate their products into Body Love Every Day,” said LeVeque. “NOW is a company I can fully stand behind for their commitment to producing only the highest quality products. It’s imperative that as I’m helping my clients revamp their lifestyles to feel good about their nutrition, eat more of the right foods, and find clean products that suit their routines, they’re choosing trusted products to support their journey.”
Tip 1: Girl On The Go
Write It Into Reality! LeVeque starts her morning by journaling goals, activities, and hopes for the day and beyond – before the busy day gets away from her. She says it’s a great way to manifest your future and stay focused on the dreams you want to make a reality. Try it!
Tip 2: Domestic Goddess
Start a Recipe Club. If you love book club, LeVeque says why not start a healthy recipe club with family and friends. You can create a calendar of recipes (that, of course, include a heaping of fiber, fat, proteins, and greens), and for one day each week, members make the same recipe. It’s a great way to stay inspired to eat clean with your community.
Tip 3: Plant-Based Devotee
Breathe and Soak. Treat your body to some plant-based self-care by making your own spa day at home. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil and magnesium flakes to a warm bath, cleanse and exfoliate your face with a charcoal detox mask, and nourish your skin with a comforting massage oil.
Tip 4: Red Carpet Ready
Fill Up on Fiber. Increasing your fiber can help to maintain serum lipid levels already within normal range, and also helps you feel full longer by slowing digestion and by its positive effects on the satiety hormone, CCK. A quick way to up your fiber? Add a tablespoon of Organic Psyllium Husk Powder or Organic Acacia Fiber to your water at dinner time (or really, any meal!) for these added benefits.
