Are you new to our blog and wondering what on earth is Beauty Eats?

Goji Berry Smoothie

I’ve talked about the benefits of goji berries in skincare before (see here), but if you want to reap additional benefits from this amazing fruit, try matching what you do on the outside with what you do on the inside. It may take some time to ease into the taste of goji berries (they are […]

DIY Fruit Infused Waters

I’m always searching for ways to make my water more interesting. For example, when Crystal Light came out, I was probably one of their first eager customers to toss that fruit-flavoured powder into my water. Much to my disappointment, however, I soon discovered repeated headaches every time I ingested their artificial sweeteners. I wish I […]

Beets and Peas Tapa-style

Last Friday, Divya from Flavour Fiesta invited me over for another cooking date – so fun! We threw around some ideas for new ‘Beauty Eats’ posts and then Divya made a light, yet still wonderfully filling lunch filled with vibrant colours. It’s true what they say – eat fruits and vegetables with lots of colours […]

A sweet, antioxidant-packed nectarine tart

First week of September – yikes! For me, this means back to school to complete my last year (hooray!) and reorganizing my closet to reacquaint myself with my fall wardrobe. I must admit, fall is not my favourite season. But you know what does cheer me up? Something sweet… and preferably something healthy so I […]
