Hungry Girl’s Head-to-Toe Beauty Foods
At Dating Diva Daily, we strongly believe that eating smart isn’t just about the number on the scale — it’s also about feeling good and looking great! And Food Network host and author Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien is definitely all about chewing the right thing for the inside, but also eating right to beautify your outside as well! With summer right around the corner, Lillien suggests her fave picks for head-to-toe beauty foods. Because if you are what you eat, why not glow!
HAIR: Tress for Success. Got dry, brittle hair? You may need to boost your protein intake. Beans and legumes are great sources of protein that’ll put you on the path to healthy, shiny hair.
TRY: Add beans like garbanzos and black beans to soups and salads. You can even blend up your own hummus (easy on the oil!). Click here for some of my favorites and how to use ‘em in HG recipes.
SKIN: Smooth skin is in. When it comes to keeping your skin looking glowy and youthful, omega-3 oils are a great secret weapon. The essential fatty acids nourish the skin and pack a powerful anti-inflammatory punch.
TRY: StarKist’s Albacore Flavor Fresh Pouches contain omega-3s and have just 90 calories per single-serve pouch. Perfect for topping off leafy greens, whipping up a quick tuna salad… whatever!
BELLY: Beat the Bloat. Nobody likes feeling feel sluggish and weighed down. But the “good bacteria” in probiotics, found in sources like Greek yogurt, help to keep your digestion on track, so you don’t feel bloated.
NAILS: Happy nails. Summertime means cute sandals, so make sure your toes are in tip-top shape. Biotin, a B vitamin, helps strengthen nails. Your fingertips will thank you too!
TRY: Justin’s Nut Butters taste fantastic, and they’re full of good-for you B vitamins that will help keep your nails looking their best. They’re also available in portion-controlled packs. Go, Justin!
