I adore Joy McCarthy and her blog.

Joy’s blog, Joyous Health is well worth visiting.  Trust me.    Each blog post is a health tip that you can practically implement immediately.  And if it’s not a health tip, it’s most likely a recipe that is healthy and easy to make.  Does it get any better?

Yes!  It does get better.

Joy likes to do video blog posts every now and then.  I love this because sometimes I just want a break from reading.  Sometimes it’s easier to watch a video blog post with two little ones running around (and seeing Joy’s complexion motivates me to take better care of myself).

Here’s a list of a few of Joy’s tips that I’ve implemented:

  • start each day with a glass of lemon water (approximately half  a lemon squeezed into a glass of water)
  • use coconut oil to make your skin shine (an all-natural and chemical-free skin product)
  • eat your greens – Pete and I have finally started putting spinach in our morning smoothies (trust me you can’t even tell when it’s mixed with some frozen fruit)
  • eat more raw foods (I try to make a conscious effort to ensure that all of us have raw veggies or fruits with every meal)

So perhaps none of this is new to you?  I find sometimes I need a reminder.  And in this case, I need someone to remind me.  JOY!

So make sure you check out Joy’s blog and sign up for her email updates.  Aren’t you worth it?

p.s. You can also follow Joy on TWITTER – be prepared for informational and interesting tips from Joy’s tweets.
