Beauty Foods to Include Daily
Let’s face it. We all want to stay young forever, right? Well, young-looking anyway! Our diet can have a profound effect on our skin and how prone we are to develop age spots and wrinkles. Why not do the best you can to include a variety of healthy and life giving foods to preserve that vibrant skin (our largest organ)! And as you’ll see, what helps one thing- helps another!
This little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world. It can often be found in juice form in health food and gourmet stores.
Anything in the “Allium Family”
Garlic, onions, leeks, scallions, chives and shallots can all help the liver eliminate toxins and carcinogens.
Green food supplement products like wheat and barley grasses can be bought in powder, tablet or juice form, and can offer great levels of nutrients. They also help cholesterol, blood pressure and immune response. In addition, make your own green juice or smoothies just to get as much as you can!
Buckwheat: Seed & Grain
Buckwheat is loaded with protein, high in amino acid, stabilizes blood sugar and reduces hypertension.
Beans & Lentils
You can reduce cholesterol while beefing up on antioxidants, folic acid and potassium. Try kidney, black, navy, pinto, chickpeas, soybeans, peas and lentils. Although these are extremely starchy- so limit portion overall, and avoid if you have sensitive or uncontrolled IBS.
Both bell and chili peppers contain antioxidants, have twice the Vitamin C as citrus fruit and work as great fat burners.
Nuts & Seeds
You can’t go wrong with a handful of RAW nuts a day—walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia and pistachio nuts contain Omega 3 fats, which are great for your heart. Raw, unsalted nuts and seeds are best.
Numerous varieties of sprouts are great with any meal. They’re a great source of protein and Vitamin C. Try adding them to any dish and your immune system will get a boost.
Kumbucha & Kefir
These cultured foods contain healthful bacteria that aid immune function, and help to balance overall immunity.
