We all know that glowing skin can be achieved by eating fruits and vegetables — foods that are rich in:
- Vitamins D, C, E, and K
- Omega fatty acids 3, 6, 9
Even if you are not a vegan, only by cutting out processed meat, dairy, and embracing whole grains, vegetables, and fruits could benefit your skin. Even if you try it only for a couple of weeks — just to shock yourself with healthy, non-toxic foods.
There are many “theories” (supported by scientific research) according to which a plant-based diet prevents chronic and hereditary diseases such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and obesity, stopping them from being transferred to the next generation (us, our kids).
Many scientific studies have shown over the last few decades how “being vegan” improves health and provides our bodies with all the vitamins and natural supplements we need. Even better than eating meat or dairy. For example, raw veggie protein resources such as nuts, legumes, and tofu, contain as much protein as non-vegan foods (meat, eggs, dairy).
Berries, as another example, are rich in vitamins C and E, both antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Berries are not only packed with skin-beautifying antioxidants, but are also high in flavonoids which delay skin aging signs and improve mental health.
In short, when it comes to our health, we have to choose whether we have to continue eating meat and processed food or try going vegan. Even once in a while as a detox for our body. Eating this way has heaps of other health benefits, too, especially for women.
