Looking back, I really enjoyed the time when I was eating for beauty benefits. I purposefully started off each day with highly nutritious foods (or drinks) that had a wonderful impact on my hair and skin. I've veered way off the path and I'm now making an effort to return. Breakfast is the perfect place to start because it's easy to carve out a routine. So, I'm going back to my roots with the intention of making it a part of a daily routine.
Black strap molasses (BSM) is loaded with trace mineral such as copper, iron, magnesium, selenium, & B6. Many boast of how BSM was able to help reverse their grey hairs back to it's natural color. I have more grey hairs than I'm comfortable with so I hope to experience wonderful results in that area as well. Along with molasses, I make sure that my oatmeal contains flax seeds for omega 3s and fiber. This is just a start, I plan on loading up my oatmeal with other goodies once I get into the swing of things.
collagen supplements. When I first introduced collagen into my diet, I noticed an immediate difference, so I know it works. With every year that passes, our collagen production reduces. We can't stand idly by and allow that to happen. In order to complete the collagen triad, I pair lemon water (vitamin C) and silica from Beautifully Bamboo tea. Collagen, silica and vitamin C are thee best of friends. You need all three to stimulate collagen production. Combining all three is a very smart move if you want to nourish your skin from within. And let's not forget how wonderful bamboo tea is for hair growth and fabulous nails.
Next to the collagen supplements is a dose of ultra concentrated fermented cod liver oil (FCLO). If you're asking yourself, "what on earth is fermented cod liver oil," then please check these posts out. FCLO is a game changer. Then I remembered that I still had a small stash of chlorella supplements and tossed them into the mix. I'll keep fruit as a mid morning snack and sip on tea and lemon water throughout the day.
It's a start, but I'm really happy with where I'm at so far. There's no doubt that if this becomes a regular part of my morning, the results will be amazing. I'll keep experimenting with adding a protein source and maybe a few other amazing supplements.
And to think that I used to skip breakfast.
