The glowing skin diet isn’t an official diet that you can google. When I started doing my Beauty Bites Series, I researched the types of foods that are beneficial to skincare. Healthy skin from the inside out. Luckily, I already try to eat a plant based diet with the occasional pizza slice and beer mixed in. (Hey, no ones perfect!) However, when I began wedding planning, I really wanted to step up my diet and skincare games. No excuses.
Glowing Skin Rules:
- Eat The Rainbow
- Add Anti-Inflammatory herbs and spices
- Drink lots of water and green tea
- Avoid too much caffeine, added sugars, and alcohol
- Eat good fats like olive oil and avocado
- Steer clear of packaged/processed foods
So, its pretty simple. Eat good, healthy, colorful stuff while avoiding the junk. Here is an average day in my glowing skin diet life from this past week.
1/4 cup steel cut oats made with unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon and nutmeg
2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 small apple sautéed in honey, cinnamon and nutmeg
1 cup mixed berries: blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries
Chickpea and Freekah Salad I was out of freekah so I used red bulgar instead
2 cups baby kale
1 cup homemade romaine salad mix with carrots, red and yellow bell peppers, and celery
1/4 cup mixed nuts: pistachios, pecans, almonds, walnuts
1 box organic raisins
Veggie Stir Fry with Brown Rice
- bell peppers
- one bag of shredded superfood veggies. It’s a blend of kale, kohlrabi, carrots, brussels sprouts, napa cabbage, and broccoli. You can certainly chop your own mix, but I love that they take the work out of it.
- fresh ginger, peeled and micro planed
- fresh garlic
- turmeric and black pepper
- soy/tamari/liquid aminos whichever you prefer
- hoisin, just a tablespoon or so
- finish with rice wine vinegar
