"The media WANTS women to hate their bodies. They depend on it, in fact.
More wrinkle cream is sold to women who feel old, more diet pills to women who feel fat and more douches to women who feel dirty…
If we stop hating ourselves, they’ll lose billions."
"I treat myself like I would my daughter. I brush her hair, wash her laundry, tuck her in goodnight. Most importantly, I feed her. I do not punish her. I do not berate her, leave tears staining her face. I do not leave her alone. I know she deserves more.
I know I deserve more. "

As a fitblr I often see people talking about egg whites and how great they are and how bad egg yolks are. NO. It breaks my heart to think of all the nutrients of the egg yolk being discarded into eggy heaven.
Egg yolks are good!
Nutrients in a yolk: Egg yolks are jam packed with fat soluble nutrients these include: Vitamins A, D, E, K and carotenoids. These help you boost your immune system, keep your bones, teeth, and skin healthy, reduce the effects of diabetes, and help you reduce the risk of cancer.
Also: Yolks have loads of Zinc, Calcium, Folate and vitamin B12. All of which are super important for you.
But, but, but eggs are full of cholesterol! Cholesterol is needed in the body as it is the building block of hormones, also cholesterol helps repair damaged cells in the body. Cholesterol that comes from processed, super fatty food is bad for you, so don’t go out and eat tons of fried food. When it comes from this incredible egg it is not!
Additionally: Eating only egg whites can cause a biotin deficiency, biotin is the vitamin that gives us strong nails and beautiful hair!
In conclusion: EAT THE WHOLE EGG. It is only 70 calories for one XL egg. It is amazing for you. Tastes great. Now I am not saying go make yourself 20 eggs to make up for your lack of yolky days, but do not be afraid to incorporate into your diet.
Having a bad day? Going through a rough patch? Life crisis?
Don’t panic. Don’t fall apart - it becomes a habit. Stay calm and know that you are where you are right now for a very important reason. Life will never give you anything you can’t handle. It will all make sense in a little while, but for now… Go back to basics. Drink water. Breathe deeply. Eat foods that heal. Surround yourself with loving people. Read books that resonate with your soul. Go for a walk in the woods, on the beach, in the park, in your backyard - anywhere you can breathe fresh air and see the sky above. Close your eyes. Connect. Remind yourself of the things you have to be grateful for, and let the words Thank You become your most important mantra. You can do this.
You are strong, you are whole, and you are not alone.
