7 Beauty Foods That Will Help You Glow From The Inside Out

Since my Hysteroscopic Myomectomy, I have made changes to my diet. For me, this looks like less sugar, more water, having a smoothie a day to ensure I get my greens, and eating foods that fight inflammation.

Now, I haven't exactly mastered the art of cleaner eating. In fact, just last week I had egg rolls and churros from Jack in the Box for lunch, Chick-fil-a for dinner, and two doughnuts in the same day. I'm judging me, too. No lie, each day, I find myself making a conscious effort to stay on the right track with my eating. Recently, however, I'm finding it to be a little easier, and that has a lot to do with the positive residual effect making better food choices has had on my skin.

Needless to say, these days I have a fridge full of food that both makes me feel healthy and that seems to be helping with my hormonal breakouts. Here are seven items to add to your grocery list that will help you glow from the inside out.

Whenever I hear the church say something along the lines of, “I know God will give me [such and such] because he said that he will grant me the desires of my heart,” the first thing that comes to my mind is how unfortunate it is that church culture tends to make an Olympic sport out of editing Scripture to its own liking.

In this particular case, that resolve comes from Psalm 37:4 (NKJV); however, the entire verse says “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Yeah, do the first part and then the second portion follows. Secondly, Jeremiah 17:9-10 tells us that “the heart is deceitful;” that’s because our heart is the “center of our emotions” — and emotions change all of the time.
