Have you ever been really excited about getting promoted into a new role or taking on a new, demanding project at work? The excitement is real but reality sets in—you slip into a rushed, overwhelmed state and reach for the doughnuts left out in the office kitchen. I just completed the most exciting and challenging task of my career thus far, writing my first cookbook, Good Clean Food. Filling the pages of a book with delicious, easy recipes was beyond my dreams, and while there were no doughnuts on set to reach for, there were definitely challenging days.
For me, staying balanced, feeling good, and looking good is about getting back to basics. What are your nonnegotiables? You really might not have time to do it all but decide what you need to do to feel good. For me it’s making a quick, hearty breakfast each morning, and incorporating foods throughout the day that fuel my brain and ease my stress.
So if you're ready to achieve radiant skin for good and improve your health while you're at it, here are my top food picks to put your most beautifully glowing self forward and stay balanced no matter what is thrown your way.
