I have been on a rollercoaster of a journey with my skin and I am sure lots of you can relate. A little disclaimer...I am no expert. I am purely coming from a place of experience After much trial and error, I have found what works for me and makes me glow inside and out.
I have learned that what I consume has a massive effect on my skin.
Throughout my journey, I have learned that what I consume has a massive effect on my skin. This isn’t always the case for everyone... but it definitely is for me! My breakout trigger foods seem to be sugars, refined carbohydrates and dairy. I try to keep away from these food groups and find alternatives whenever possible. Although, now and again, I do have to feed the soul... so I may have a cheeky chunky chocolate bar! But I now understand how my skin will react, and how to combat the affects of this kind of indulgence.
While there are foods that make my skin break out, I have also found that what I eat can have a positive affect. Certain foods leave me both satisfied and radiant.
The recipes below are meals that my skin loves.
Date, Cinnamon & Peanut Butter Overnight Oats:
- 1 cup of oats
- 1/2 cup of oat milk
- 1/2 cup of water
- 6 chopped dates
- 1 tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of natural peanut butter
- mix all ingredients and pop in the fridge overnight!
Chunky Chickpea Salad and Honey Mustard Dressing:
