Jump Start Your Healthy Lifestyle with 2 Delicious Women-Owned Brands
What you put in your body and on your body is vital for creating and maintaining a healthy you. It takes quality fuel for us queens to kick ass in this world. Eating well is MOST important to your health.
Have you heard of the 80/20 rule for ‘diet’ and exercise? I hear those numbers float around (80% of your health depends on your diet, while 20% depends on exercise).
It is a lot easier to cut out 500 calories every day than it is to burn 500 calories per day through exercise.
Running on a treadmill at a 10 minutes per mile pace for 45 minutes burns about 500 calories for a 140-pound person.
Personally, I cannot lose weight or maintain a healthy body type (which is right for me) without eating well. I can exercise every day, but if I don’t eat right I am doomed.
Losing weight or being healthy isn’t all about eating less. Try replacing heavy meals or processed snacks with things like almonds, quinoa, fruits, and veggies. You can actually eat more, stay fueled, and lose weight!
Plus, you are getting rid of the nasty stuff and replacing it with the good stuff! Don’t you love how scientific I am?
With exercise, you are ridding your body of toxins. However, exercise doesn’t replace those toxins with good nutrients and minerals. That is why healthy foods and beverages are so vital.
At Empower Palette, there are no diets, only lifestyles. A diet is fleeting and screams out for you to cheat. A lifestyle is a way of living that reflects your values. Read that sentence again.
Don’t you want your life, your body to radiate what you value? How beautiful and powerful is that?
I encourage you to support brands that align with your beliefs. Here are 2 women-owned brands that sell healthy goodies while helping to improve the world:

See more about their honey.
Bees are responsible for providing at least 30–50% of the world’s food supply. Our survival relies on these little pollinating powerhouses. In fact, studies show that if honeybees were to disappear, the human population could not exist for more than four years.
Bees are basically the hardest workers on the planet. Without them, we wouldn’t have fresh produce, flowers or our personal favorite, honey. But it’s not all sweetness and happy hives for the honeybee. A phenomenon has emerged called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), and it’s claiming the lives of bees in record numbers. CCD is likely caused by pesticides, mites and stress, and up to 42% of the earth’s bees have been wiped out.
