Eating for Your Skin

When I started reading on nutrition in January, it was to learn how to eat to improve the skin. There is way more written on this topic than I would have guessed when I started. Yesterday, I got confirmation for what I learned at the library.

Bastyr Center for Natural Health offered a great free class on eating for your skin taught by Phoebe Yin, ND. It substantiated everything I had read. Here are some of the tips that I picked up.

Eat a low glycemic diet.

Eat 7-10 servings of fruits and vegetables per day–(my focus on Noevir green smoothies makes this easy).

Raw nuts and seeds are hugely important in your diet. Focus on 2-3 organic brazil nuts per day to get Selenium. This mineral is very important in protecting your body from cancer. Hint–to turn nuts from acidic to alkaline, germinate and/or sprout them.

Quality fats are very important. The professor focused on extra virgin olive oil as your main oil. Use coconut oil for sauteing.

Herbs and Spices are strongly anti-inflammatory. Fresh ginger is a great one easily added to green smoothies. Also, cinnamon.

Tea–If you’ve been reading my blog you know I advocate for the Noevir Herbal Blend Tea.

Include probiotics which come from fermented foods. This category includes kombucha, miso, sauerkraut, yogurt, kefir, and kimchi.

Stay away from processed foods, minimize alcohol, reduce stress and eliminate food allergens.

Enjoy your flourishing health with this diet.

Also, go “like” Bastyr Center for Natural Health” on Facebook. You can watch a video of this presentation or attend future presentations! Definitely a positive experience!

About Your Flourishing Life

As a child, Marlee Huber loved to ramble through gardens sampling juicy berries and delighting in the heady fragrance of roses. As an adult, she thrills at maintaining a country garden in the foothills of the Washington Cascades. Something happened in 2012 that changed everything for Marlee. She followed the love of her life as he bicycled across the continent from their home in the NW to his brother's home in the Virginia. Ninety days later she came home and has never been the same. After photographing the backroads and hamlets across America--all on auto, she came home and took an online photography course, read dozens of books on technique and vision and stepped out into a new career. Her passion is coaching young people to discover their brilliance. She calls it Life-Themes Coaching and during one nearly half-day session, she unpacks what makes you brilliant and one of a kind. Then she matches the discoveries with a photography session where she tells the story of your life with her camera. In her personal life, she is a wife, mother, and grandmother delighting in her flourishing family!
