Hey, See This Girl Run readers!
I’m so excited to be guest posting for Alyssa today! My name is Danica, and I’m the author behind the blog It’s Progression. I’m a newlywed (you can still say that after a year, right?), a puppy-momma, runner/lover of working out, avid reader, baker, and soon-to-be Certified Health Coach. Feel free to stop by my little corner of the blog world to check out the craziness that is my life anytime!

Something I personally struggle with is my complexion – I’ve battled acne since I was a teenager, and while it’s gotten much better in the past few years, its certainly not gone yet. And so I’m working on that. I’m working to heal from the inside out. with food. <–and if you know me, that probably comes as no surprise 😉
This post is short and sweet but reminds us of the foods we should be including in our diets.
As someone who believes diet has a profound impact on my health, I’ve focused my research on foods that I should regularly include in my diet. And I thought that just in case some of you are going through a similar struggle, maybe you’d like to know, too!
