Let food be my medicine. Plant based diet food.

Ah, so you are finally back. Well, let us see what we have today on OiB. I’m going to share with you a secret or more perhaps, which I have not told anybody before.

How to use organic products and get glowing skin?

Now food items what you eat everyday can make you put on weight. Though you do not realize it, you put on those unwanted kilos that can ruin the beauty of your skin and health. Meat products, flour, fried foods make you gain weight. Foods made from nature don’t as they do not contain saturated fat, have tons of fiber, and are low on calories.

Very briefly I will discuss the DIY recipes.

  • Whole-wheat pasta
    Food of pasta, then go ahead. All you need to do is alter the garnish and ingredients. When serving the pasta, avoid sauce. Instead, make use of olive oil, onions, garlic, diced kale, diced tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, fresh basil, and oregano.
  • Smoothies – Smoothies are extremely easy to make. All you need to do is take some soy milk and almond with frozen berries. Just blend them all and you have one powerful juice in one drink!
  • Foods to be avoided are meat, milk, rice, and too much of potatoes. These are not for your skin and your weight. Unless you avoid them, you cannot expect good skin.

Here is a small tip when you want to keep your skin looking fresh. You will want to drink water and avoid coffee at all cost. Tea in the mornings or red wine in the evenings is fine.

These products are safe because they come with plenty of nutrients including vitamins and antioxidants that provide what your skin actually requires. When they are in their natural form, they tend to get easily absorbed and that explains why they give better results. Other products found in the market, do not provide the results with you want.

They have proved beneficial in solving problems I earlier faced like wrinkles, acne, stretch marks, dryness, sun damage, and others. The recipes are extremely simple. It is all about going natural. You are not only helping your skin glow, but enabling the environment to stay cleaner using fresh products.

As you can see, with simple ingredients like salt, pepper, yogurt, and spices, you can just about create several dishes. You do not have to feel bad about eating plant based foods as they are good for your health and skin.

There is no doubt that natural skincare is the best. Do you want to choose natural skin products today and benefit like me?

The Greatness of Grains

Carbs! I love carbs. How about you, OiB readers? Surely, you have heard some media discrediting the greatness of grains throughout the years. Namely, people like to say that too many carbohydrates are bad for you and make you gain weight. Today, I would like to counter that superstition and fill you on why you need grains.

But not just any type of grain will work. You need to consume unprocessed (not refined) whole grains.

What is a Whole Grain?

All grains, according to the Whole Grain Council, begin whole. Whole grains are, basically, the entire seed of a plant, made up of three edible parts—the bran, germ, and endosperm.

The barn is a multi-layered outer shell that has antioxidants, essential B vitamins, and plenty of dietary fiber.

The germ is the potential new sprout. Here, you find more B vitamins, some protein, minerals, and healthy fats.

Lastly, the endosperm is the energy supply of the germ. Contained in the endosperm are carbohydrates, proteins, and trace amounts of other nutrients.

What Makes Grains “White”?

When whole grains are stripped of some key parts—the bran, germ, or endosperm—they become refined or processed. White flour and white rice, for example, have had the bran and germ removed, leaving only the starchy endosperm behind.

Why Are Whole Grains Healthier?

That is the main question here, is it not? Obviously, whole grains have a lot of vitamins and nutrients than refined grains do, but these are not the main reason why you need them in your diet.

Starches throw your blood sugar out of whack. Whole grain carbohydrates do not have the same effect. Whole grains are slowly absorbed and metabolized, meaning that blood sugar stays level. Also, whole grains are known to reduce the onset of heart disease.

In fact, a recent 2016 study proved that whole grains are linked to a longer lifespan. The meta-analysis was comprised of 14 studies and found that eating 3 servings of whole grains a day was “associated with a 25 percent lower risk of death from heart disease, and a 14 percent lower risk of death from cancer”.
