One of my meals. Veggie mix – yellow pepper, okra, tomato with dried onion, basil, Costco organic no-salt seasoning in covered pyrex bowl in microwave. Yummy! Filling! Nutritious! Not shown: salmon and sweet potatoes

With spring here, and summer right around the corner, you’re probably upping your weight loss efforts, and looking for something to provide that glow. Fruits and veggies are great for weight loss; and according to a study referenced in WebMD earlier this month, they are the most natural skin care remedies out there.

Fruits and veggies contain anti-oxidants and pigments which affect skin tone – affecting brightness, glow, and hue. “Foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, and apricots are rich in beta-carotene, as are some dark green vegetables, including spinach and kale.” I eat a lot of these foods – they are healthy, great for weight loss, and for obesity related diseases like diabetes. It works for me, and has worked for Bill Clinton! Check out the youthful 70 year old woman in the video below – she is testament to the health and cosmetic benefits of fruits and veggies.
