evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Zain’s Top 40 List of Vegan Skin Clearing Foods
Healthy, glowing, blemish-free skin really has nothing to do with what you put on the surface but everything to do with what you put in your mouth.
Pimples, chronic acne, cysts, rosacia and other such issues are all created internally through toxins or allergies in the liver and kidneys and appear on the skin because the skin is the body’s largest organ.
If you have regular skin issues, you may want to start taking a look at your diet.  Your diet regulates your hormones so yes, changing your diet can help even if you are in your teen years and have chalked it up to hormones.
Introduce as many of these foods into your smoothies, salads, fresh juices and main meals as possible for the next several weeks and notice how your skin starts to respond.  Check out Zain’s Divine Glow Smoothie for a little inspiration! This is the smoothie that I love to make when my skin looks a little dull or blemishy.
