The seasons are changing and with that comes change in your body, skin, hair and nails. Do you feel me?
My skin is breaking out, my hair seems to be falling out and my nails for a while there wouldn’t hold a polish…ugh!
Which is why when I learned about how food is so much more than just fuel for your body in my health coaching classes, I knew I had to share this with you guys. I mean if you can save money on skin treatments and add these foods in…why not?
So what are the foods that will give your skin that amazing glow, like you’ve spent a week detoxing on a tropical island?
Believe it or not,.its sulfur-residue foods!
Sulfur is not just the mush of yolk found in deviled eggs at your annual office Christmas party that you avoid like the plague.
Sulfur is actually the secret beauty mineral for glowing skin!
Why else would 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 is the fastest way to glowing skin?
The fastest way to glowing skin, besides going to a mineral hot springs, 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 gas and smell like rotten eggs when you cook them.
But try your best to embrace these amazingly nutritious cruciferous veggies like cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, Bok Choy, and Brussels sprouts!
I’ve even including a healthy and delicious recipe that include sulfur for you to try out:

How will you know if it’s time to eat more sulfur-residue foods?
It’s time to include sulfur-residue foods in your diet if you answer “YES” to any of these questions:
