Nurtured with Nutrition
I think that vitamin supplements are great but they are just that…they are a supplement to your diet. Meaning that your vitamins are not a meal replacement! A vitamin supplement by definition is…
a substance with a specific nutritional value
taken to make up for a real or supposed deficiency in diet
Skip the supplements and absorb the nutrients from the source and receive the maximum benefit.
This is for your health and beauty!
For Beautiful Skin…
Wild Salmon is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids which help keep the skin healthy. Omega 3’s reduce inflammation and help boost the overall condition of the skin leading to smoother, younger looking skin with a visible reduction in inflammatory skin conditions like acne and psoriasis. We eat salmon all the time at our house. It’s easy to make and great for your brain and heart. If you’ve never made salmon before try this Simple Baked Lemon Herb Salmon Recipe.
Kiwi fruit is full of vitamin C which is an antioxidant with the primary function of collagen production. Collagen is an important protein in the structures which hold our body together, including skin, gums and teeth. When I was pregnant I tried to eat as much kiwi as I could knowing that stretch marks were inevitable. I think between that and the lotions it really worked. It is easiest to cut the kiwi in half and then run a spoon along the inside of the furry peel to get the fruit out. It’s great in everything citrus fruit is tasty in including oatmeal or even by itself!
Garlic is rich in sulfur. Getting enough sulfur in your diet can help maintain collagen production and keep your skin looking youthful and firm. As long as everyone is eating it the garlicky breath isn’t offensive, right? I keep a jar of minced garlic in my fridge and used it in most of my dishes. It’s a very simple thing to add to any meal and another great food for your heart.
These are just some of the ways that your diet can be changed to eat for healthier younger looking skin. Including foods like these in your diet that serve more than one purpose, or Super Foods, can help you to start developing more nutritious eating habits over time.
