Hey Gorgeous, soon to be Glowing Creature!

We all care about our internal health, of course—immune system, gut, blood, etc. But we don’t see these things every day.

What do we see? External indicators.

Wrinkles. Or smooth skin. Dryness. Or a glowing, soft complexion. Sagging. Or tone and vitality.

I’ve assured you that you’ll have glowing skin on the plant-based diet. Now here’s the proof. 

The health of our skin is one of the most obvious indicators of our body’s overall condition. It’s super visible, and we watch it change every day in the mirror.

Researchers studied wrinkles in 716 women’s faces, focusing specifically on crow’s feet. They rated test subjects’ wrinkles on a scale of one to six (with six being the worst) and tracked dietary differences.

The results?

Drumroll please… 😉

Women eating more green and yellow vegetables scored lower (that is, they had less wrinkles!). Less than one serving of juicy green and luscious yellow goodies: average score of three. Two or more servings per day: a score of two.

So, eat up, gorgeous! Glowing skin is waiting at your local farmer’s market!

Want to learn more about eating for your best health and brightest skin? You understand this concept but don’t really know how to implement it into your kitchen? In my latest book series (click here >)HEALTHY, SEXY, VEGAN. I show you how to discover the best health of your life as you live and eat in harmony with your body. Check it out now!

For life,

Donna
