The food and skin connection

Long ago I learned that what I ate would directly affect the way
my body felt, functioned and aged.
The exciting part was that my skin was the direct benefactor of eating
a healthy diet loaded with fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, grains, seeds, and healthy oils.
The effect was not just subtle but, dramatic! People often ask me what I do for my skin. My main focus for skin care is paying attention to what I put into my body.

This was how I began my love affair with Salmon...

Truly... anyone who knows me knows how often I eat Salmon. It is one of those foods
that is packed with nutrients that are healthy for my body and ultimately my skin.
Omega3's work wonders!

I just came across a great article on the subject of eating a healthy diet

and how it affects our skin. It is an interview with one of
the pioneers of the skincare/healthy eating connection.
I think it is a snapshot of some of the tops foods
to keep inflammation down in our bodies and boost
the glow of our skin. ...This is good for men too!

Check it out!


P.S. On the salmon front... Be sure to choose Wild Salmon.
Farm raised or Atlantic salmon
are actually low in Omega 3's and may contain other pollutants.
