We’ve all heard different things about different foods – berries are “superfoods” butter is great for restoring shine in your hair. YOU ARE NOT BEING FOOLED – MOST OF THESE ARE TRUE!
I have yet to do serious experimentation with the foods in my cabinet, but this great article dives into a few of my favorite foods that contribute to keeping a healthy upkeep of the mind and body.

For use on the skin, you can try creating a face mask with the avocado (and honey) or use the outter skin of an avocado to rub on your face to act as an exfoliating agent (due to its rough contour.)
