THE FACE BEHIND THE BLOG

Hi! I'm Marlee and started Sweet Health Nut back in 2011 when I began my journey toward a natural lifestyle.

I'm the web editor of an interior design and architecture magazine by day, and a health and wellness enthusiast at all times (blogger on evenings and weekends!)

I'm a health-conscious vegetarian, vegan flirt, skincare sampler, beauty junkie, acne fighter, yoga enthusiast, feminist and hopeless giggler who strives to enjoy every last drop life's sweetness.

The Skinny on Beauty

The Skinny on Beauty

The problem with society’s portrayal of beauty isn’t that it depicts skinny as beautiful, it’s that it singles out skinny as beautiful. But in order to try to fix this problem, many go in the complete opposite direction, stating that skinny is not, in fact, beautiful, or at least, the most beautiful. But why does curvy have...
Skincare Time Warp: Going off acne prescriptions + crazy experimentation = finally learned my lesson

Skincare Time Warp: Going off acne prescriptions + crazy experimentation = finally learned my lesson

Get ready for a blast from the past. Here is a post from my tumblr account from exactly one year ago! Ahhhh time flies and it’s freaking me out! I can’t believe how far I’ve come, but in the same breath, I feel like literally no time has passed. I’ve successfully done away with my...
Quote of the Day: Existentialism

Quote of the Day: Existentialism

  Existentialists are nihilists because they recognize that life is ultimately absurd and full of terrible, inescapable truths. They are anti-nihilists because they recognize that life does in fact have a meaning: the meaning each person chooses to give his or her own existence. They recognize that each person is free to create themselves and...

"Noooooo!" I plead. "Not again! Anything but that!!!"

“Noooooo!” I plead. “Not again! Anything but that!!!”

Sorry for the melodrama. Mother nature dropped off my “monthly gift,” as they call it in that awful commercial for tampons… a product that supposedly saves you from the worst present you could possibly receive. Um. Excuse me. No. Tampons* prevent me from bleeding out all over myself. Yes, it spares me humiliation, and for...
Orthorexia Nervosa - Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

Orthorexia Nervosa – Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

The following is a post that I made in February of 2011 on my Tumblr account. I wrote this when I was heading in the direction of a food and health obsession. Everything I wrote is still accurate and relevant, except my emotional and mental connection to eating has changed since then. I no longer...
DIY Face Mask: Cranberry + Greek Yogurt + EVOO + Honey

DIY Face Mask: Cranberry + Greek Yogurt + EVOO + Honey

I mentioned in a recent post that I really wanted to try using yogurt as a face mask since it contains lactic acid, which is a natural exfoliant. I saw this video from one of the beauty gurus I subscribe to on Youtube (AllThatGlitters21) and felt the need to share it right away! I’m definitely going...
One Argument: Why Humans Bodies Aren't Physiologically Apt to Consume Meat

One Argument: Why Humans Bodies Aren’t Physiologically Apt to Consume Meat

The second we put food in our mouths, the digestion process begins, thanks to our saliva. Guess what? Our alkaline saliva is not meant to break down animal flesh; carnivores have acid saliva, perfectly designed for the task. And hydrochloric acid, essential for digesting carcass, is secreted in very small amounts in our stomachs. However,...
Skincare Review: Clarisonic + OCM + Lerosett

Skincare Review: Clarisonic + OCM + Lerosett

I mentioned a few times in recent posts how I’ve totally abandoned all skincare products to let my skin balance itself out. I also felt like I was relying on products so much that it was causing me emotional stress. That’s why I decided to spend as little time in front of the sink and...
