Ever wondered which foods will give your skin that amazing glow, like you’ve spent a week detoxing at a spa on a topical island?
Sulfur is not just the mush of yolk found in deviled eggs at your Aunt Edna’s summer BBQ. Sulfur is actually the secret beauty mineral for glowing skin!
Why else might people flock to mineral hot springs to soak in water that smells like rotten eggs?!
Sulfur helps your body to digest fats, controls the metabolism of carbohydrates and rids the body of waste that clogs skin pores causing a lackluster complexion.
So, what’s the fastest way to glowing skin?
Unless you can book a weekly visit to your local spa or hot springs, the surest way to get your glow on is to get in the habit of including foods that are rich in sulfur in your daily diet.
You may be surprised to hear that sulfur-rich foods are often the ones you avoid because they tend to give you gas and smell less appetizing when you cook them. But, try to embrace these amazingly nutritious cruciferous veggies like cauliflower (also a very nice low-carb rice alternative), broccoli, cabbage, Bok Choy, kohlrabi, and Brussels sprouts!
Here is a healthy and delicious recipe to help you include sulfur in your diet to get that skin glowing:
Get “The Glow” Salad:
1 bunch arugula, chopped
1 bunch watercress, chopped
3 leaves kale, shredded
4 radishes, sliced in half moons
1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
½ cup purple cabbage
1 avocado, diced
Toasted hemp seeds or pumpkin seeds to taste
Get “The Glow” Salad Dressing:
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp stone ground mustard
Juice of 1 lemon
¼ bunch of flat leaf (Italian) parsley, chopped fine
4 sweet basil leaves, chopped fine
1/3 c extra virgin olive oil
