You know I’m all about using clean and natural skincare while changing your diet as well.
I wanted to tell you about 5 beautifying foods that will help your skin start to glow—and be clear—in no time.
PLUS, I’ve got a new recipe for you too!
1. Chia seeds
Chia seeds and walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids that help maintain cell membranes by protecting the skin and providing it with moisture. Add a teaspoon to your morning smoothie, or make an overnight chia pudding dessert.
2. Sweet potatoes
Add a sweet potato to your dinner and you’ll be getting plenty of vitamin A which enhance skin color and appearance.
Packed with vitamin E, almonds can help you have healthy skin.
4. Sunflower seeds
Sunflower seeds are another excellent source of vitamin E to help protect your beautiful skin from damage caused by free radicals in the environment.
5. Oily fish like salmon or tuna
I make sure I eat at least two servings of fish a week. Eating fish provides biotin, which among other wonder things, produces fatty acids and metabolizes amino acids.
Speaking of tuna, tuna burgers are my current favorite, thanks to how easy they are to make without sacrificing taste. These babies have been a life savor many a time when I’ve been looking for something quick and easy.
Try it yourself:
- 2 cans tuna
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- ¼ cup onion, diced
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Combine all ingredients into a bowl and stir.
- Form tuna mixture into burgers and set on a plate.
- Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, allowing the burgers to hold shape.
- When ready to cook, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet and cook burgers until either side is slightly brown.
