Eating well leads to true beauty in many ways. Why not use the power of plants and other foods to reveal a true and inner beauty instead of buying an expensive creme? You can have silky hair, clear skin, and a healthy weight simply by eating the right foods.

The “super foods” that can do wonders to your health, beauty and wellbeing, because of the particular health benefits they possess. While a lot of people often associate those super foods with exotic and sometimes expensive foodstuffs, I am here to tell you that we are surrounded by “super foods” that are common, inexpensive, and actually often neglected.

 

 

 

Clear skin

 

One of the most compelling ways eating well leads to true beauty is how clear your skin gets! Specifically, foods rich in vitamin A are known for improving skin quality. After all, retinols are derived from them! I noticed that when my clients start incorporating lots of root vegetables into their diet, like carrots, yams, and butternut squash, their skin becomes much more radiant.

 

SHINY HAIR

Many people want strong and healthy hair, especially as they grow older.

Hair grows growth depends on factors like age, health, genetics and diet.

Although you can’t change factors like age and genetics, diet is one thing you have control over. In fact, consuming a diet lacking the right nutrients can lead to hair loss.

On the other hand, eating a balanced diet with the right nutrients can help promote hair growth.

 

 

Some people swear by a certain brand conditioner or hair treatment. But treating your hair from the inside out is much more effective. Healthy sources of fat are the key to healthy, shiny hair. Make sure you get enough nuts, seeds, and avocados.

Here are the 3 best foods you can eat to promote hair growth.

 

  1. Eggs are a great source of protein and biotin, two nutrients that may promote hair growth.
  2. Berries are loaded with beneficial compounds and vitamins that may promote hair growth. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, which aids collagen production and iron absorption, two factors that may promote hair growth. 
  1. Spinach is a healthy green vegetable that’s loaded with beneficial nutrients like folate, iron, and vitamins A and C, all of which may promote hair growth.

 

 

A HEALTHY WEIGHT

Eating well helps you to achieve a healthy weight. A diet that incorporates plenty of fruits and veggies as well as lean proteins, and heart-healthy fats will undeniably help you lose weight. True health and beauty ultimately come down to taking care of your body. That means eating right and getting active!

Here are some examples of foods that lead to beauty and health from the inside out:

 

One of the simplest foods offer many health benefits is the carrot.

You may have heard that carrots are good for the eyes, but you might not know that carrots have the highest amount of beta-carotene (the precursor of vitamin A), among the common vegetables. The carotenoids contained in carrots make this veggie a true antioxidant. Antioxidants are needed to fight the free radicals in our body, which can cause disease, and accelerate the signs of ageing.

Avocado is a popular and delicious food that offers healthy fat and lots of nutrition! Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids.
