Your body deserves the best, but it is damaging to the body when consuming toxic substances in your daily meals. Eating clean is not just about the shape of your body but about the shape of your life and your health. The effort and care you take to shape your life and your health will eventually show in your body and your skin. We only have one, so why not treat it with respect?
Applying heaps of makeup is a temporary fix for a glowing face. Fresh, healthy ingredients, on the other hand, are a more permanent solution. You do not have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces. You just have to prepare good food from fresh ingredients. According to Mike Adams,
“Today, more than 95% of all chronic diseases is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.”
Here are some of the natural ingredients that you can add to your daily meals to keep your mind active,your body lean and your skin glowing.
- Avocados: Green foods are natural sources of detoxifying molecules. They neutralize the poisonous substances that have accumulated in your body. Avocados are rich in vitamin C, which provides collagen; collagen is a protein building block for our skin cells and keeps our skin firm and wrinkle resistant. Avocados are also rich in vitamin E, which acts as an anti-inflammatory and protects the skin from inflammatory irritants.
- Tomatoes: Tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene which helps the skin remain youthful by protecting it from the damaging rays of the Sun. Tomatoes also balance the pH of your body, tighten your skin pores, reduce skin irritation, and prevent acne.
- Pomegranate: The juice of this fruit is a super meal for your skin, hair, and health. It is rich in antioxidants, folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E, all of which are essential for your skin. Pomegranate is also rich in omega 5 fatty acids, which facilitates cell repair and regeneration.
- Essential fatty acids: Essential fatty acids like omega 3 and omega 6 are essential to our body’s cells. They keep the skin hydrated by maintaining its natural oil barrier. Foods rich in these essential fats include salmon, flax seeds, safflower oil, walnuts, and soy.
Changes do not have to be big. Start integrating a few of these ingredients into your meals on a regular basis, and start noticing a difference. Your body is a reflection of what goes on inside it, and it’s up to you to make sure that what goes in it is healthy and fresh!
