Spring has sprung, and it's the perfect time to revamp and refresh your approach to health and wellness. As we at Facial Lounge know, a holistic approach to health and wellness is essential to achieve glowing skin and overall well-being. Did you know that your gut health is linked to your skin health?

According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, "improving gut health by consuming a healthy diet, probiotics, and prebiotics can improve skin health and overall appearance." That's why we're excited to tell you about Organically Catered, who shares our commitment to nourishing your body from the inside out with their organic, farm-to-table meal prep service.

Founded by Regina Swain in 2017 in Newport Beach, Organically Catered focuses on creating a healthier lifestyle by offering customizable meal plans that cater to individuals with allergies, sensitivities, and dietary restrictions. With their organic, farm-to-table meals, they provide the perfect complement to Facial Lounge's skincare treatments, promoting a radiant, healthy complexion through nutrient-rich, clean eating.

Regina has come up with a list of food substitutes to help detoxify your kitchen and promote an alkalized state in your body, creating a defense against diseases and illnesses. By replacing these everyday pantry and fridge products, you can increase your metabolism, energy levels, and build resistance to disease and illnesses - all while enhancing the health and appearance of your skin.

Here are our top ten items to purge from your kitchen, along with healthier alternatives recommended by Regina:

  1. Replace Soy Sauce with Coconut Aminos
  2. Replace Soy Milk with Oat Milk
  3. Replace Jasmine Rice with Gluten-free Quinoa
  4. Replace Peanut Butter with Sprouted Walnut Butter
  5. Replace White Bread with Spelt Bread
  6. Replace Chips with Roasted Chickpeas
  7. Replace Cheerios with Gluten-Free Sprouted Granola
  8. Replace Whey Protein with Hemp Seed Protein
  9. Replace Cookies with Dates
  10. Replace Soda with Alkaline Water

To help you get started on your healthier journey, Organically Catered shares two delicious recipes featuring some of these healthier substitutes: an Oat Milk Smoothie and a Chickpea Snack. These recipes are not only nutritious but also beneficial for your skin, as they are packed with vitamins and minerals that support a radiant complexion.

Creamy Oat Milk Smoothie Recipe

Looking for a dairy-free alternative to your morning smoothie? Try using oat milk instead of soy milk for a creamy and delicious result. Not only is oat milk free from allergens like soy and nuts, but it's also an environmentally-friendly choice. Here's a recipe for a tasty and nutritious oat milk smoothie.


  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp almond or sprouted walnut butter
  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into a glass and enjoy.

This oat milk smoothie is packed with nutrients from the fruits, chia seeds, and nut butter, and the oat milk adds a creamy texture that makes it a perfect breakfast or snack. Give it a try and see why oat milk is a great alternative to soy milk.

Roasted Chickpea Snack Recipe

Looking for a healthier snack option than greasy chips? Try roasted chickpeas, which are high in protein and fiber and offer a satisfying crunch. Here's a simple recipe for roasted chickpeas that are packed with flavor.


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Pat chickpeas dry with a clean towel.
  3. Toss chickpeas with olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Spread chickpeas on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crispy.

These roasted chickpeas are a great snack option that's both healthy and delicious. They're a good source of plant-based protein and fiber, and the spices add a tasty kick of flavor. Enjoy them as a guilt-free snack anytime.

By understanding the harmful effects of the "Not That" list, such as the link between soy and cancer in both women and men, you'll be more inclined to eliminate these items from your kitchen. Combined with Facial Lounge's customized skincare treatments, adopting these healthier alternatives will contribute to a more vibrant, glowing appearance.
