What If We Just Ate Pretty?



She’s glowing

What if we just ate pretty?  What if we only consumed foods that added to our beauty?  Not just on the outside, but pretty from the inside out.

I’ll tell you what would happen:

*the scale would settle at a natural, healthy number and stay there

*we would be energized and fueled from what we put in our mouths

*we would sleep better

*we would smile more

*we would live longer

*we would GLOW from the inside out

My hand is up!  I want to glow!!!!

As the end of the year approaches, I’m thinking that this is going to be my mission and my message for 2015.  Anyone else have their hand up?
