6 Foods You Should Be Eating

Coconut Oil: 

Much better for cooking stir fries, and cooking meats because of it’s ability to heat to high temperature without turning into a bad fat like Olive Oil.


Onions are a power food to say the least. Onions specifically clean your blood, and help to balance bacteria  in your body.

Raw Sauerkraut: 

Enjoy some raw sauerkraut after eating some greasy pizza to help undo some of the damage. It doesn’t cancel it out, but it helps break down the food.

Stop drinking water:

Yes, that’s right I said “stop drinking water”. Now let me put this into context for you; there’s nothing wrong with drinking water it’s just about timing. You don’t want to be drinking water while you are eating because it dilutes your food, and actually works to slow digestion; giving it more opportunity to turn into fat. Try drinking water 1/2 hour before meals, and then again after, but avoid chugging it back during your meal unless weight gain is your goal.

Cayenne Pepper: 

Helping to speed up metabolism this spice is a great choice for adding flavour to your meals. Add this spice to your regular diet for a little kick to your taste buds and your metabolism. The way it works is that the heat from the spice actually helps to numb your throat and ultimately your thyroid gland.

Red Wine Vinegar: 

Add tablespoon of red wine vinegar to a glass of club soda, and enjoy with your meal to help stabilize your blood sugar levels, and help you stay full longer. Not to mention you’ll also benefit from the all the anti cancer properties that are in red wine without all the calories and poison of alcohol that can lead to breast cancer.

***All of the suggestions above come from “The Beauty Detox” book, as seem on E! With the exception of the Red Wine Vinegar suggestion which came from watching Dr. Oz, but I’ve been enjoying it a lot lately with my amazing SodaStreamer.

But you don’t need to go out and by the book check out her blog for great advice:
