Eating for vibrant healthy skin. Ever wonder which foods will give you the “glow?
For vibrant skin, eat sulfur-residue foods! Sulfur, the “beauty mineral,” provides smoothness and shine to the skin. It helps in the digestion of fats, controls the metabolism of carbohydrates, and rids the body of waste that may clog pores, causing a lackluster complexion.
Sulfur is found in aloe vera, arugula, cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower), mustard, radishes, ripe bell peppers, ripe hot peppers, spirulina, hempseeds, onions garlic, and watercress.
Signs of a sulfur deficiency Include:
* Brittle hair and nails
* Gastro-intestinal challenges
* Immune Dysfunction
* Scar tissue
* Pale, pasty complexion
Get “The Glow” Salad!
This salad contains sulfur residue foods. If you are prone to feeling gassy by eating these “beauty” vegetables, try balancing the dish with a salty vegetable such as celery, kale, spinach or chard. Salty vegetables calm down the sulfur reaction in the intestines.
1 bunch arugula, chopped
1 bunch watercress, chopped
3 leaves dino kale, shredded
4 radishes, sliced in half moons
1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
1/2 cup purple cabbage
1 Avocado, diced
Hemp Seeds or Pumpkin Seeds to taste
Get “The Glow” Salad Dressing
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp stone ground mustard
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 bunch fresh Italian parsely, chopped fine
4 basil leaves, chopped fine
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Combine ingredients in a jar and shake well. Mingle dressing and salad and serve!
