Castro makes homemade face masks in her kitchen using ingredients such as avocado. "Many people consider avocados to be one of the healthiest foods you can eat. The fruit is a good source of numerous vitamins and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, and research shows that it can help promote heart health with a balanced diet. Along with these health benefits, avocados are also known to promote healthy skin," says Eat This, Not That!
She Loves Coffee
Castro enjoys both hot and iced coffee. "Not only does coffee lower your risk of mortality, but it is specifically associated with reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease-related death, diabetes-related death, and even lowering your risk of Parkinson's Disease," says Eat This, Not That!
Castro likes cooked plantains in meals as a side to her protein. "Although a tasty cultural experience, fried preparations and those with added sugars should not be consumed frequently," says Michelle Schelske-Santos, PhD, professor of the Nutrition and Dietetics Program at the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras, in Consumer Reports. "They add calories that may result in weight gain or obesity, and have metabolic effects that increase the risk of developing chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer."
Castro loves to swim, which experts say in a great way to support back health, especially if you sit at a desk all day. "There's no hard impact on your back like there is with running, and instead of being bent forward like you would be on a bike, your back tends to be arched slightly in the opposite direction," says David Tanner, a research associate at Indiana University. "Don't try to do too much too early, and focus on proper technique."
Ice Cream For a Treat
Castro loves ice cream, which experts say is fine in moderation, depending on ingredient quality. "For most people I would [recommend eating] a little bit of the real thing, as long as they're slowing down and allowing themselves to fully enjoy that eating experience," says dietitian Rachael Hartley, RD. "When we label food as bad, it sets up this sense of emotional restriction around the food. Most people know that when we get overly hungry, we tend to overeat as a way of compensating for that hunger. But if there's this emotional hunger for a food, that can trigger that same sense of deprivation and [then] overeating."
