Promos: LoveLife Giveaway – Annie’s Experience/Discoveries

lovelife berries discoveries

DISCOVERIES:

“The discoveries I’m making about my body, while a part of the LoveLife Program, have been LIFE-CHANGING. Did you know that I lost weight every single day I ate dinner before 7 PM? The two days I ate dinner at 8:30 PM, I gained a half a pound. My body was not able to metabolize and break down all of the food in time for my morning weigh in. Eating earlier gave my body more time to process my dinner from the night before. Also, did you know that eating starchy fruits and vegetables (and brown rice) can make you sluggish throughout the afternoon into the evening? I switched my morning banana for colorful berries from the West Hollywood Farmer’s Market instead, so I could focus on eating lighter fruits in the afternoon. And guess what? Energy UP! Life changing I say!”

Promos: LoveLife Giveaway – Annie’s Experience/Prepping, Cooking, Juicing

lovelife prepping cooking juicing

PREPPING, COOKING, JUICING:

“I have made BULK COOKING a habit because of this Program. Instead of making a “serving size” of beans or brown rice, I am now making a pound, so that I can pull from it for an entire week. I learned a long time ago that if I make it ahead of time, I won’t have to scurry for food, thus increasing my chances of choosing the wrong ones. Plus, a lot of my hunger, I found, was really thirst! Juicing has been a life saver – for my skin, my energy, and my mood. Green veggies and colorful fruits make me happy, inside and out! Making a pitcher of the Program’s Juice Recipe gave me something sweet to sip on when sugary juices made from Concentrate weren’t an option. Plus, it’s awesome to put it in a water bottle when on the go!”

Promos: LoveLife Giveaway – Annie’s Experience/Grocery Shopping & Meal Planning

lovelife cleanse grocery shopping

GROCERY SHOPPING & MEAL PLANNING:

“I’m not one to plan ahead and have food readily available to cook up. So the thought of “Meal Planning” was a bit daunting. Luckily, the LoveLife Program came with a list of ‘Approved Foods,’ ‘Complaint Restaurants’ in LA (and meal suggestions!), as well as recipes galore! The Grocery store suddenly opened its arms up to me! It was no longer about packaged pasta and sauce. Or even BBQ’ed chicken. ‘Ol’ faithful’ meals turned into Lentil Tacos, Homemade Vegetable Soup and Hummus, Chia Pudding, Salmon, Arugula, Chickpea Salad, and my favorite, smoothies with Coconut Milk & assorted mouth-watering berries. I’m eating foods I didn’t know how to use & didn’t even know existed. I now have an arsenal of knowledge, wherein I can continue these habits well past 21 days.”

RECEIVING THE KIT:

“It’s never been easy for me to “follow directions” when it comes to food. I love going out to dinner and trying different foods, even if it means sometimes going a bit overboard. Upon receiving LoveLife’s Cleanse Kit, I was pleasantly surprised to know that not only was it packed with yummy goodies, such as herbal teas and protein powder, but also seed crackers that I could bake myself, as well as STEP-BY-STEP tutorial cards on what to do each and every day. This was accompanied by emails, chat hours, and a private Facebook group where I could share in the experience with other cleanse-goers. I’m now on Day 10 and I have truly never felt more secure and confident that I can not only do this, but enjoy the process.”

Feed Your Beauty: Sweet Potato, Kale, and Corn Chowder

One of our favorite parts about the cool winter months is curling up with a bowl of hearty soup… and we just stumbled across a recipe for a GREAT one; Sweet Potato, Kale, and Corn Chowder! This tasty soup has so much to offer your skin. We’ve already raved to you about the skin benefits of sweet potatoes, but now we get to tell you a bit about kale! This nutritional powerhouse has Vitamin C which helps you make the collagen needed for skin strength, Copper which boosts the synthesis of melanin (a pigment that protects your skin from the sun), and Vitamin A which promotes healthy cell growth, including the cells that make up the dermis and epidermis of your skin! We can’t wait to DIG IN!

Promos: LoveLife Program Giveaway

Are you ready to feel your personal best? Then get ready to enter our LoveLife Giveaway! We are giving away one LoveLife Program & Cleanse Kit (valued at $395) to one lucky Facebook Fan, and it could be YOU!

lovelife contest blog

 

Did you know that citrus could be the root cause of your allergies? Or chicken may be causing your joint pain? Alternatively, you can be filled with powerful energy when you eat fish? Here at SkinOwl, we are always looking for ways to help YOU, our fans and clients, LOOK GOOD and FEEL even better. Life is hard enough. Why should the things we eat make it harder? Food is powerful, it can channel us toward happiness and optimal health; or food can create destruction in our bodies thus impacting everything from our weight to our skin to allergies to mood and more!

 

SkinOwl’s Founder, Annie Tevelin, was so excited when she was introduced to the LoveLife Program (and its amazingly inspirational Founder, Kim Love) a year ago. When asked to sum up her experience on the LoveLife Program, Annie said, “It helped me to eliminate stress, sleep more soundly, and take on the day’s tasks without any road blockages. With life moving as fast as it sometimes does, I didn’t always have time eat every few hours or plan ahead. This program goes beyond basic cleanses, diets, fasts and fads; which often bring unsustainable results and a confusing relationship with food.” LoveLife used their food tuning method to uncover Annie’s UNIQUE food triggers and tolerances, guiding her on a food discovery journey to find her Food Fit. By the end of the program, Annie had lost 13 pounds in 21 days, found out what foods worked and didn’t work for her, and left with an arsenal of “food and feel-good” knowledge to last her a lifetime. Success!

 

And now this life changing experience could be yours for FREE! Simply pop on over to the SkinOwl Facebook Fan Page and complete three simple steps to enter our LoveLife Giveaway for a chance to win!

Wise Words: Confront

As we start a new year, it’s a great time for self reflection.  We must first confront ourselves, our fears, our desires, before we can move forward. If we cannot acknowledge what is going on in our own minds, then we will never be able to make any changes to our future selves and improve our lives. We want to make improvements and have 2014 be the best year yet, so we are confronting ourselves and making positive changes for the future! What about you? Want to join us?! COMMENT on this post and let us know you’re with us!
