Readers, in case you’ve been missing our Facebook Expert Q&A session, fear not. We have been thrilled at your reader response in the past for celebrities like Ken Paves and Sam Fine. Today, at 1:30pm EST, we introduce you to celebrity nutritionist and author, Kimberly Snyder, whose book The Beauty Detox is a great addition to not only your kitchen bookshelf, but to your lifestyle.
The book’s purpose is give you foods that you can eat on your way to radiant skin, and increased energy levels. And, naturally, the body you’ve “always wanted.” During our Facebook Q&A, Kimberly will address the “inside out” approach to beauty — and this means you can ask her all your burning questions on best foods, fruits and vegetables to eat to achieve that flawless complexion.
The purpose of writing the book was to show consumers that while spending money on expensive creams, serums and lotions was all well and good, true beauty really comes from within. She takes the time to give readers a clear picture of WHY high-mineral fruits and vegetables is natural, and why dairy and animal protein are not easy to digest (and therefore unnecessary and unnatural to your lifestyle). The book talks about what foods to eat and what ones to avoid, the importance of enzymes and probiotics, pantry basics and beauty recipes. I have to say, I’ve made her Acai Berry Smoothie in a matter of minutes (the one with Almond Rice Milk) and it tasted delicious. I’ve also begun to see a noticeable difference in my skin and my energy levels.
Ms. Snyder has traveled the globe and visited 50 countries to study health and beauty practices around the world, and she is the point person nutritionist for several of Hollywood’s celebrities. Drew Barrymore has said, “I don’t like to diet, I like to eat right and that’s what Kim’s philosophy is all about. She’s brilliant.”

The book is staunchly lodged in my kitchen cabinet as a great reference and recipe book. Just check our this recipe for her Glowing Green Smoothie see how easy it is to drink and eat right (you can whip the whole thing up in minutes):
1.5 cups water
1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped
3-4 stalks organic celery
0.5 head organic spinach
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 organic pear, cored and chopped
1/3 bunch organic cilantro (stems okay)

Juice of 0.5 fresh organic lemon
Directions: Add the water and chopped head of romaine to the blender. Starting the blender on a low speed, mix until smooth. Gradually moving to higher speeds, add the celery, apple, pear, cilantro and parsley. Add the banana and lemon juice to taste.
