Beauty is Not Skin Deep
Ever have someone say to you
"If you eat any more carrots you're going to turn into one"??
That's not exactly what I'm talking about.
But if you eat too many donuts, your skin may start to look like one :)
Put good in to get the good on the outside:
- Eat foods as close to their natural state as possible
- Going gluten free naturally reduce inflammation in your body,
this positively affects your skin, especially rashes and break outs
- Don't want to go gluten free all the way?
Then generally reduce your carb intake
- Try to eat each color of the rainbow everyday,
and I don't mean Skittles!!
- Dairy products have been linked to acne.
Don't want to give it all up? No problem, try a trial separation for a month and see what happens to your skin
- Eating good sources of healty fats can help improve dry skin
KISS your food!
Sounds a little frisky, right?
Trust me, it's not, just keep reading.
Let's apply the KISS Method to snacks.
Here are some ideas to pack a little more skin-nutrition into your day,
and avoid some common pitfalls.
- Homemade Trail Mix vs. Granola Bars: Homemade Trail mix
(minus the chocolate candies) will have more whole nuts,
seeds and fruits then a bar, and none of the fillers
- Want something rich and creamy? Try avocado or hummus instead of sour cream or cheese based dips
- Sweeten your coffee with maple syrup vs. sugar
- Knock out soda with seltzer
- Dehydrated fruits can make you dehydrated, eat fresh instead
(they try to absorb the water in your system)
- At meals, eat your veggies first. It aids digestion and fills you up on the good stuff first

I find eating better is easier if I make small changes. I have started eating my veggies first and I noticed I’m eating more of them.
Great tips, thanks for sharing.
This is very accurate. Being vegetarian all my life it is a challenge for me to explore out of my comfort zone.
