Collagen is the key to glowing skin. What you eat has a direct impact on your skin and if you fill your diet with the right foods, it’s possible to boost collagen production from the inside out. 👍
Mango - A great source of vitamin C and beta-carotene which both build collagen.
Carrots 🥕 - These also contain beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that helps repair cell damage, as well as vitamin A which restores and regenerates damaged collagen.
Protein 🍗 - Vital for the body’s production of collagen so make sure to include plenty of meat or plant-based protein in your diet such as chicken, fish and pulses.
Oily fish 🐟 - Tuna and salmon which are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids that help to create stronger cells.
Dark green vegetables 🥒 - Spinach, kale and asparagus boost the body’s ability to generate collagen and will increase production.
Beetroot - Packed with anthocyanins which help support collagen production. They can also be found in other dark purple fruits including blueberries, blackcurrants and prunes. #rejuvenatedskin#collagen#wellness#lookgoodfeelgood#healthyguthealthylife#skinhealth#skinexcellenceclinics#glastonbury#plymouth#dorchester#bristol#diet#skindiet#bestforskin#beautifulskin#youngerlookingskin#insideout#glowingskin

Stir fry chopped onions and carrots until soften, then add minced garlic and fry for another 30 sec. Add chopped tomatoes if using them, if not add the remaining part of curry powder and a stock cube and stir that in.
Put the roasted cauliflower back in the pot, cover it with coconut milk, add some water if needed. Let it boil for 20min and it's done. Now just put the parsley and basil in, some lime juice, let it cool down a bit and then adjust the taste with salt and coconut sugar if needed.
Serve with the steamed rice 🍲 Enjoy!
ACNE sucks. Conventional treatments are not always successful and often come with unwanted side effects like peeling skin and liver damage. Herr are some lifestyle factors to keep in mind if your dealing with acne. 🥑
#1 ELIMINATE DAIRY. Dairy contains a hormone (IGF-1) that stimulates glands associated with acne. Dairy also is a high glycemic food which is bad for acne. There are numerous studies correlating dairy intake with acne. 🥑
#2 EAT A LOW GLYCEMIC DIET. Sugary foods and simple carbohydrates elevate insulin levels and insulin stimulates hormones (androgens) associated with acne. 🥑
#3 PROBIOTICS have been shown in several studies to benefit the skin. They likely work by reducing systemic inflammation and through their influence on absorption. .

We were fortunate enough to receive several of the soon to be released GracieBloo bars. We got them in the Blooberry Nut, Coconut Almond and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavors. What makes these so special? They are Bone Broth Collagen Protein Bars delivering a triple punch of healthy goodness for your body, hair and skin. AND the ingredients come from pasture and grass fed animals - VERY RARE to find these days and key to a healthy diet as we recently detailed in our article on clean eating (link in bio for a quick refresher on benefits and tips of clean eating). These are a very high quality meal replacement bars and they actually satisfy all your nutrient requirement making them a fantastic way to eat ‘clean’ without much effort. With 15 grams of complete protein (all 9 essential amino acids), 13 grams of fibre, and 9 grams of protein all at 180 calories, these are a miracle. Plus, since they have 9 grams of collagen in them, they help your skin, hair, and nails stay extremely healthy. We would eat these even if they tasted terrible, but THEY ARE AWESOME. We loved the texture - they are soft and pliable like taffy which makes them fun to eat. In addition, the flavors of each of the bar are true to their description. Reach for one of these at about 3:00 in the afternoon when you get a bit tired and want to reach for that chocolate bar, and within 10-15 minutes your hunger pangs are gone. They are also very low in sugar - one of the skin enemies. These are our new go to snack. They are due to be released this summer and we can’t wait to replenish our stash! Keep an eye out for their release :) 💜
Smoothies are a great way to start your day without spending too much time in the kitchen.
You can’t never go wrong with an organic berry blend smoothie full of antioxidants ✅1 cup of organic mixed frozen berries
✅1/2 cup or coconut milk. I used full fat for thicker consistency and it makes you feel full longer. ✅1 scoop of protein powder (please check ingredients, not all protein powders are created equal)
Yesterday we got our #urbanfarmer mode on! I Think more and more we want to live sustainably right?
In tune with nature around us as well as knowing what we're eating, & without having to spend a fortune day to day on fresh produce!
So here we have it! Let's see if our crops grow well in the garden! Were growing #blackbean#lettuce#fennel & #radishes Let's see how they sprout!
Progress pics: right one was taken a few minutes ago and the right one was taken almost exactly 2 months ago.
In this two months I have been fighting with continuous sinusitis, laryngitis, alergies, etc..also too much stress and too little sun. I have been flaring up so much but now when I take a look at this pictures it looks like there is some progress after all.
I have stopped all the medications over 7 months ago. I am not eating dairy, eggs, refined sugar, meat (occasionally chicken breast or chicken soup) or fish, no tomatoes, eggplants, no alcohol.. I still do eat gluten and 1 cup of coffee daily.
How do you handle setbacks? Any advice is welcome 💛
Kapha dosha rules much of the fluid in the body and it’s elements are composed of earth and water. Kapha governs our lymphatic system/ Rasa Dhatu. With a harmonious flow of the lymphatic system, we feel energized, our immune system is at optimal levels and waste/toxins are filtered and carried out of the body correctly. If lymphatic flow becomes stagnant, we can feel heavy, sluggish, congested, bloated, sick (think sore lymph nodes) and we retain fluid throughout the body, including the face. (which at a molecular level is very heavy for the skin and should not be ignored on ones “anti-aging” quest but that’s for another post) Lymph is normally a clear, watery fluid, however, a diet consisting of too much sweet, salty, fatty, rich and heavy foods creates excess Kapha (water and earth; think mud) which naturally slows down any type of flow, including lymph. Because the lymphatic system does not have a pump of its own, it is important that we support lymphatic movement through water intake, diet, lymphatic massage, Gua Sha, dry brushing, lymph supportive herbs and movement (rebound trampolines👌🏻). In Skin, excess Kapha manifests as stagnation, congestion, cysts, oiliness, lackluster buildup, blackheads and clogged pores, especially in the lower areas of the face. Kapha imbalance on the skin may not show up quite as hot and inflamed as Pitta imbalance but still induces eruptions and inflammation from stagnation. When assessing skin conditions, I keep in mind, Kapha = heavy; Pitta = heat. Vata up next!
SKINFOOD // Wat je eet is mega belangrijk voor hoe gezond je huid eruit ziet! Healthy inside zorgt voor een glowing outside✨ Deze groene smoothie heb ik gemaakt o.a. met avocado, spinazie, appel en komkommer en bevat daarom veel antioxidanten die huidveroudering tegengaan🍏🥒🥑🍏🥒🥑
Healthy Summer Fruits🍎🍌🍊🥝🍋🍇. Eating fruit first thing in the morning is best as the digestive system breaks down the sugars quickly and allows us to get the full nutritional benefits, including antioxidants which will help us age better. #healthyeating#healthyageing
