Snack your way to pure confidence + win something! - Narcissism is Necessary

Snack your way to pure confidence + win something!

Yeah, you can actually do that – snack your way to confidence!

Satisfy your womanly cravings without having to compromise your physical appearance and confidence.

Provided that snack is my awesome 3 bean confidence boosting salad, that is! ;)

Who says snacking must be unhealthy to be tasty? Who says snacking will cause indiscriminate weight gain & bad skin? Meh.

# – Beans can boost your confidence.

My 3 bean salad is addictive, ridiculously tasty, even more ridiculously easy to make and H E A L T H Y. Packed full of nutrients, antioxidants, good fats and fibres. Yums.

Besides, your friends and family will definitely shower you with compliments if you served them this.

How else to build up more confidence if not by accepting praises for your cooking prowess? At least, that’s how I build some of my confidence anyway, haha.

Without further ado, here’s how to make the salad:

# – The ingredients – 3 types of canned beans, 2 celery sticks, 1 green capsicum, 1 onion, olive oil, red wine vinegar (or balsamic), salt & pepper.

# – Slice up the celery, capsicum and onion.

# – Open up all the canned beans.

# – Pour the beans into a sieve or colander and rinse with water.

# – Pour the rinsed beans into a large salad bowl.

# – Followed by the sliced celeries, onion and capsicum.

# – Mix it up with a spoon. Set aside and start with making the salad dressing.

# – Pour 200ml of olive oil into a measuring jug. Then add 100ml of red wine vinegar.

# – Next, season with salt and pepper.

# – Whisk until emulsify (turn opaque in colour). The dressing is now done.

# – Pour dressing all over the bean mixture prepared earlier and stir to combine.

# – Awesome 3 bean salad, DONE! It can be eaten immediately but taste a lot better after chilling in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight :)

The 3 bean salad is a great replacement for carbohydrates like rice, noodles and potatoes too as they have extremely low glycemic index; giving your stomach the sensation of fullness without messing with your blood sugar levels so you can have stable sustained energy to go about your daily activities.

Of course, just eating healthy alone is not enough. Every woman should also adopt a good skincare routine along with a healthy diet. Only then pure confidence is attainable :)

The Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant Skincare range protects the skin from free radicals by detoxifying, neutralizing, energizing and brightening skin. The rich pomegranate extract with patented Greenol Oriental Herb complex drive one’s own skin regeneration mechanism to reverse the effects of aging!

By using the 3-Dimension Vector System, the active components are wrapped in nano-capsules that penetrate safely and deep down to the tenth layer of your skin.

# – The Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant Skincare range.

# – My favourite cleanser at the moment.

Wrinkles? Banished! Pre-mature aging? Diminished! Hello smoother, younger & firmer complexion.

Pure Beauty also has a range called Youth Restore Skincare series with Black Pearl, made from Tahitian black-lipped pearl, a renowned species of Polynesian oyster.

Why Black Pearl? It provides natural marine mineral which helps to regulate & rejuvenate the skin’s complexion.

Its rebuilding and regenerating properties help to preserve the youthfulness of the skin and provide a flawless, illuminated complexion.

# – I believe this is invented purely for Diablo 3 female players haha.

# – The perfect remedy after a long night of killing virtual demons.

# – Eating healthily and using the Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant Skincare = Pure Confidence.

    Pure confidence to me is knowing I am good enough to excel in the next level of task given without doubting failure or achieving it close enough to good but not good enough, hope u get my drift.

    As typing this, my pure confidence is knowing I will own one of the Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant Skincare gift sets that you are giving away. XD

    Pure confidence is knowing that you have given your best shot in whatever you have done. Pure confidence gives you the strength and courage to stand strong in the face of criticism. Pure confidence makes you beautiful inside and out.

    Shall steal your salad sauce recipe! Om nom nom. :D

    Andddddd, pure confidence is all about not being afraid to venture out from your comfort zone imo. It takes so much courage to just do something different that might or not work. :'(

    Pure confidence is about having the courage and commitment to pursue one’s goals/do the right thing in spite of the challenges and believe that one can achieve it. It is also about sticking to one’s principles in the most difficult times. With pure confidence, this will help a person’s beauty and character to shine through.

    Beans, beans they are good for your heart!
    The more you eat the more you fart!
    The more you fart, the better you feel!
    Let’s eat beans for every meal!

    I must surely win something for that masterful piece of poetry.

    Pure Confidence is when you keep your head up and keep on marching on eventhough the world puts you down. Take on the world with a heart full of compassion and emphaty when the going gets tough. Keep on smiling and believe in your true potential which you will unleash to empower yourself and also the people around you. You will be the shining light that guides the world.

    <3

    From personal experience, pure confidence is “to not be afraid to fall & laugh at myself” :)

    Pure confidence to me is about being able to accept ownself, have lots of self-love (but not self absorbed)and be able to turn own flaws into something that others will be envious of and living life LIKE A BOSS =D

    Pure Confidence to me is,
    To have the strength for constant determination
    And the persistence to take action
    While embracing one’s own imperfections
    To be brave enough to face objections
    And have a firm grip on one own’s convictions
    To shine through and amaze all with admiration
    With aspirations that inspire imagination
    Pure Confidence is, simply put, life’s greatest companion.

    Pure confidence is being able to go out and socialise without needing any makeup on our face. This is only possible when we have beautiful skin from using Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant Skincare daily.

    Pure confidence is when you know exactly who you are and what you want in life. Of course, good skin and a healthy body come in handy too. :)

    Love Three Bean Salad… I got another one. Pure confidence is being able to fart in front of your partner and laugh together about it. :P
