Food that will make you glow

Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food“ –

as Hippocrates quoted. And I strongly believe in this! I believe that nature has all the answers. You can find better solution for your acne or dull skin at farmers market and fresh produce stand in supermarket, then at you doctor office or pharmacy.

For glowing skin eat lots of orange fruits and vegetables: melons, apricots, and yams.

If you have dry skin (especially in winter time) include healthy oils like avocados, olive oil, coconut oil.

If you worry about protein (I, personally, think that we should worry about getting TOO MUCH protein, especially animal protein) there is plant base protein available in kingdom of seeds: sesame seeds and hemp seeds are excellent source of bio available proteins.

If you have puffy eyes include diuretics like asparagus and parsley, also circulation boosters like cayenne pepper and ginger.

For wrinkles eat a lot of fruits that are rich in colors such as berries. And remember to include all type of different colors, among the fruits and vegetables, in your diet EACH day.

Exercise, fresh air and morning sunlight – are all very beneficial to your health!

Avoid at all costs:

  • soda
  • regular table salt (substitute it to Celtic sea salt or Pink Himalayan Salt)
  • non-organic dairy and other animal products
  • tap water
  • processed food
  • microwave dinners
  • commercially fried food
  • fast food restaurants
  • coffee and black tea (if you can avoid it –great, if not – try to limited as much as possible)
  • smoking
  • alcohol
  • bad thoughts and aggressive behavior.

Think positive and surround yourself with good energy and love!

Love, Val

    Hi Valentina,
    Thank you for this great tips Valentina ; I should be more attentive to your advice, nevertheless believe me Valentina, I’ve done a lot of effort this year.
    I participated in the last race of the year today (marathon de la rochelle), I was really in great shape (thanks to you and all the team OYL), I passed the half marathon in 1h16mn40s, I was sure I was going to beat my record, but at 3 km of the arrival (km 39), I’ve had a muscle tear and I ended in walking in 2h49mn58s.
    Of course, I’m disappointed, but that’s sport. (I hope I will beat it next time).
    I don’t know how to thank you (you and all the team OYL), I wish you good luck for your future and of course the best.
    Bye Bye, Thanks again for everything, I will never forget you, you meant a lot to me.
    big kisses to everyone. Christophe.

    I think that’s true about the olive oil, the air is dry as hell here, and I was wondering why my skin and scalp felt good lately, and then I think it’s alot of olive oil that I opened a big bottle of it last week and have not needed much lotion or hair conditioner and it’s wonderful.
    Val it’d be nice if you whipped up some Instagram photos like Lonneke has done. I’d like to know how much protein is bad also, as I’ve been lately trying to get more and more for intense heavy weight lifting and energy and strength, but if there’s like a threshold or limit to not exceed, I want to know.
