4 Easy Natural Ingredients to Add to Your Diet ASAP: Guest Blogger

At first glance, you might think that Kathy Ong’s Beauty Palette blog is just your average beauty blogbut you’d be wrong. The underlying theme behind everything that she covers is this: what you put on your face is just as important as what you put into your body. In her own words, “a defining aspect of beauty is nutrition.” Hear hear! This week, she’s sharing her best beauty tips—for both inside and out—on the Birchbox blog.


1. Mulberries: Mulberries have become my latest snacking obsession. Filled with vitamins A and C, I noticed that my hair looks shinier and my nails are so much stronger after adding them into my snack repertoire. Mulberries are also a great source of resveratrol, which is known for fighting free radicals (amazing for anyone who wants added anti-aging benefits).

2. Hemp Protein Powder: I’m lactose and soy intolerant, so having whey or soy protein is a no-no for me. Luckily, hemp powder is a great plant-based protein alternative since it contains all nine essential amino acids. I usually add a scoop into my smoothies to turn them into an easy filling meal that keeps me energized for hours on end.

3. Dandelion Tea: Drinking a hot cup of dandelion tea is my favorite way to detox my body after a particularly, um, social weekend. Dandelion is known as a potent liver detoxifier and is a great way to help your body release toxins naturally.

4. Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are an amazing accessory for a variety of foods including salads and smoothies. Chia seeds are yet another nutrient power house that I love: they are filled with calcium, iron, fiber, protein, and potassium.  Also, since they expand to three times their size in water, they keep you full for longer, helping you avoid grazing on whatever sugary treats are lying around the office.
