Detox Me

Guys, I’m obsessed with food. Along with my food obsession comes bloating. How do I combat it? With this magical drank. It does wonders for my digestive system and it’s so easy to make. If I can make it groggily first thing in the morning anyone and I mean ANYONE can make this. Now I’m not going to lie, this drink is not the easiest to gulp down. It’s a little sour but I’m so use to it now that I like drinking it. But let me tell you, when I first took a sip of this my reaction was “I’ll take a hard pass on this” but I took a few more sips and it got better and I felt amazing! I got the recipe from Lauryn Evarts Book The Skinny Confidential  (One of my health holy grail books) I substituted a few things in this recipe to better suite me and my taste buds 😉 Feel free to do the same to mine! Let me know what you substitute with the hashtag #tydnoms (Truthfully Yours, Dahlia Noms- Get it? So clever)

What’s in it? Water//2tbs of apple cider vinegar//2tbs of lemon juice//Stevia or honey to add some sweet flavor.

Benefits of this magical drank:

Apple cider vinegar

-Can help clear up skin conditions

-Keep you regular

-Stabilize blood sugar

-Ease menstrual cramps

Lemon

-Alkalizing aka increases your pH

-Chock full of good ole vitamin C

-Cleansing, obv.

Here’s my video with all the deets.

Being Content With Yourself

Being Content With Yourself

Being Content With Yourself

Hey you. Yes, you! The beautiful human reading this blog post, I want you to know that you are good enough. Sometimes those four words are just what we need to hear/read. Have you ever wondered how we get to the point where we feel inadequate? COMPARISON.

Comparison is the culprit of all of those icky feelings. Think about it, we compare ourselves to others all the time! Here are a few examples;

  • Bodies- Dying for a body like Queen Bey? You workout really hard and when you don’t look like her you’re upset
  • Relationships- Another one of your friends has just gotten engaged and you’re still single as a Pringle
  • Jobs- Your friend has your dream job and it wasn’t even her major
  • Finances- You have student loans for the rest of your life but someone else has NONE (is that even possible?)
  • School- You have to study for hours to understand Bio-Chem but someone else can skim through and understand everything.

Does any of this sound familiar? It should because we do it all the time! People seem to believe that this issue is reserved for adolescents but it’s actually affects everyone. We’re human obviously, and it happens, but what do we accomplish when we compare ourselves to one another? You just end up super annoyed and down in the dumps for nothing. It took me a while to be content with myself and where I am in life. I am who I am for a reason. I’m where I am for a reason, you know? Those characteristics about you are what make you special. If you got everything you wanted from the people you compared yourself to, there would be nothing special about you. You’d literally be a carbon copy of that person. No thanks, I’ll pass on that. The moment you stop comparing yourself you won’t feel the need for others to accept you. And that my friends, is a liberating feeling.

A few months ago I heard Derek Coleman from the Seattle Seahawks speak he said “Imma do me, and you can do you!” and that statement could not be anymore perfect for this topic. Stop the comparisons and “DO YOU” and let everyone else “DO THEM” because at the end of the day comparisons won’t do anything for you. Be content with yourself (as in mentally and emotionally satisfied with where things are), accept yourself and stop the comparisons because you are GOOD ENOUGH.

Stay fab bbys

You are good enough! You are good enough!

xoxo

 

 

 

 

 

First Day Of School Feels

First day of graduate school: check!

Today, I was an adult…kind of

Can you believe school has started up again? Where did the summer go? And by summer I mean the semi-free time I had and not the weather. I’m all about that fall crisp air, boots and sweater dresses are calling my name. Who’s with me?! I hate summer because I sweat, like a lot. I would like to get from point A to point B without having beads of sweat form on my forehead and frantically having to pat my face down. Not cute. That’s a post for another day.

Welcome and Special Thanks!

Hello old and new readers!  Welcome to the new and improved Truthfully Yours, Dahlia! I am so excited about this new site and to bring you all better content that I love and I know you all will love.
