Spring is in full swing, and there are lots of brides-to-be out there getting ready to celebrate their special day. And while most will be eating healthier to fit into the dress of their dreams, you may not be aware that the foods you eat do more than just affect your waistline. Healthy, energy packed foods can also do wonders for luminously luscious skin and getting the glow you want for your wedding day. Here is a short list of snacks that can hit the spot when cravings come on strong while also helping you get a beautiful shine in your skin.
Salmon is already a deliciously healthy choice when it comes to protein and rich omega-3 fats, but adding a serving or two of this to your diet plan can also do wonderful things for your skin as well. Also get baked as a choice, not fried. Fried foods are pore-clogging monstrosities (no matter how decadently delicious they may be) so choose a nice baked option, and your skin will show the results of your health conscious decision making.
Olive Oil is proof that not all cooking oils are created equally. Fat is usually considered a dirty word when it comes to what most people consider to be healthy. But there are beneficial fats (like the omega-3 fats in salmon) and olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs. MUFAs are a better option than PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids, of course) when it comes to general health as well. Research has also shown promising benefits to fight the effects of aging on skin, so embrace your inner Mediterranean self and dive in!
Sunflower seeds can be great in a quick pinch, especially when you’re really wanting a snack but don’t have time to eat a proper meal. A handful of perfectly roasted sunflower seeds can give you a real Vitamin E boost, and the antioxidants found within them can go do a number on skin aging free radicals. Grab a few for snack time, or sprinkle some on a spinach salad for a formidable Vitamin E & C 1-2 punch!
