RASPBERRIES // work like magic on your wrinkles

Raspberries can actually be used as a natural face mask. They also protect the skin against the sun’s rays. The antioxidant powers of vitamin C effectively reduce the age spots and discoloration.

By filling in minor wrinkles, raspberries can help you restore your youthful appearance.

Raspberries can be made into great facial masks for glowing skin, you just need to mix 1 cup of plain yogurt and 2 cups of fresh raspberries, then blend the mixture until it becomes completely smooth. Apply to mixture to your entire face and keep it on for 15 minutes. Wash it off with tepid water.


Today’s snack is something I ate so much during MS150 training. There is no part (in my mind) about bread that is good for you but I feel the rest of this snack is! It’s quick, easy and packed with great nutrients to get you thru till your next meal.

Since I don’t absorb as well, I get hungry VERY frequently. With my job, I am popping from building to building all day long AKA working on the go and spending a lot of time in my car. My car truly has turned into a sample closet (I slang pharma drugs) and a pantry full of protein filled snacks to get me from meal to meal. Some would say it smells of rich cardboard boxes and almond butter…just kidding (or am I?)

I digress, this snack has been a frequent visitor in my car. It it the perfect mix of savory but tart and gives me the energy I need to survive until my next snack attack.

If you need a snack for the couch or on the go, try this messy and delicious Raspberry + Almond Butter Sandwich.
