We are what we eat, right? Well, it’s also said that the diet of the average American has lots of room for improvement. It’s likely that most of us could clean up our eating a bit more. Wouldn’t it be great to see those improvements to your diet effecting your figure and complexion as well? With clearer eating, most people notice clearer, brighter skin and eyes, increased energy, and even a more positive outlook. Here are some of our favorite clean eating tips, fromSheKnows.com :
- Vitamins A, C, and E are wonderful for your skin and hair. Wondering what a great source of all three may be? Cabbage! This superfood can be easily added to soups, salads, and stir-fries and contains 11% more vitamin C than oranges by weight. Vitamin C is a great tool in the fight against visible aging. Cabbage also contains a hearty serving of fiber, a key component in on-going de-toxification.
- We know that the liver is the primary detoxifying agent in our body, but how can we support liver health? By incorporating more lemon in your diet, you’ll naturally boost your intake of essential elements like Vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, but you’ll also support the secretion of bile in your liver to help strengthen the liver’s enzymes. This little boost packs a mighty punch!
- Improved circulation makes the skin appear glowing and refreshed. You can aid your body’s circulation by increasing your intake of Turmeric, a tasty spice that works well in sauces, marinades, and dressings. Turmeric keeps the red blood cells from clumping, encouraging better circulation and more cleansing of the blood.
- Increase your fiber intake to keep systems constantly detoxing. Hearty greens and more fruits are essential to this task.
