Glowing Skin Diet

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:

  1. Eat The Rainbow
  2. Add Anti-Inflammatory herbs and spices
  3. Drink lots of water and green tea
  4. Avoid too much caffeine, added sugars, and alcohol
  5. Eat good fats like olive oil and avocado
  6. 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.

Breakfast

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

Snack

1/2 grapefruit

1 cup mixed berries: blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries

Greek yogurt

Lunch

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

Snack

1/4 cup mixed nuts: pistachios, pecans, almonds, walnuts

1 box organic raisins

Dinner

Veggie Stir Fry with Brown Rice

Veggies

  • broccoli
  • bell peppers
  • onions
  • 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.

Sauce

  • fresh ginger, peeled and micro planed
  • fresh garlic
  • turmeric and black pepper
  • sriracha
  • soy/tamari/liquid aminos whichever you prefer
  • hoisin, just a tablespoon or so
  • finish with rice wine vinegar

Snack

Mango
