Balanced Inside Out with Kimberly Synder

Kimberly Snyder, C.N. and SSD Co Founder Crystal Fambrini at her Glow health store in Los Angeles, CA.

I met up with New York Times Bestselling Author Kimberly Synder, C.N. to have lunch and talk some health shop at her “Glow Bio” flagship store in Los Angeles that is based around feeling and looking good from the inside out. Kimberly is one of Hollywood’s top celebrity nutritionists and beauty experts.  She says to stop wasting money on fancy, expensive beauty products and get real results, while spending less, at your neighborhood grocery.

Kimberly can be seen in Vogue, USA Today, Self and many other top publications doling out nutrition tips to make you look and feel your best.  She prepares food for Drew Barrymore, Fergie, Channing Tatum, Ben Stiller, Kerry Washington and many more celebrities.  Actress Drew Barrymore “worships” her nutritional program.

She currently is the author of two must read books, the first is “The Beauty Detox Solution” which explains her diet philosophy and the second is “The Beauty Detox Foods”  which includes 50 beauty foods that will transform your body and includes yummy recipes.  If you want to rebuild your hair, fix cellulite, get bright eyes, and prevent wrinkles, Kimberly  believes this can all be done by what you eat.

Kimberly’s “Glow” store is full of visual inspiration and tips.

At her store I tasted her “Guerrilla Wraps” made with collard greens, almond pate and salsa which is dense in protein, omega 3 fatty acids, chlorophyll, vitamins a,b,c,e,k and is great for strength and beautiful skin. This wrap contains no meat, no gluten, and no oil.  I too am a big believer in you are what you eat, but looking at the wrap I thought there was no way it was going to satisfy me — and there is nothing worse then eating a meal and then still being hungry.  Well, not only was this wrap super yummy, it definitely filled me up and I was pleasantly satisfied.

I asked Kimberly to share a simple health and beauty tip that would surprise myself and the Style Seen Daily community.

“Lots of people think chugging lots of water while eating meals is going to make them more full and help lose weight.  In reality it makes you bloated and makes it harder to lose weight,”  Kimberly shared with me. “An easy tip is to separate your water and food, ideally by 30 minutes.  Stop drinking a significant amount of water 30 minutes before a meal, this allows your body to properly digest your food.  And during your meal, just sip on water as you need it.  Also, if you want a glass of wine with dinner, drink the wine first entirely and then eat your meal to help with your digestion.”
