Best vegetables for beautiful skin are:

Parsley – This vegetable warrants big kuddos for your skin! It is rich in just about all the skin boosting nutrients. It contains beta carotene, chlorophyll, vitamin B12, folic acid(great to firm skin),vitamin C and iron. So don’t treat it like a plate decor anymore-have a cup a day for great skin.

Juicing For Beautiful Skin
Green vegetables are essential to the success of beautiful skin. The molecular structure of chlorophyll is so similar to that of human hemoglobin, that juicing green vegetables can perform as ” little transfusions” for the blood and tonics for the brain, immune system, and skin. They are an exceptional resource of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes.

They are high in minerals such as potassium,calcium,magnesium, copper,manganese,iron and phosphorus. They are also packed with
enzymes for digestion and absorption, some containing 1,000 of the recognized enzymes required for human cell response and growth. They also CLEAR THE SKIN, purify the kidneys and clean and strengthen the blood.
Bottom line – get yourself a juicer and start making it part of your lifestyle and your skin and health will thank you. 🙂
Fruits that help reduce belly fat
You can juice any of these fruits and vegetables before your workout for energy and aid in fat burning. Try mixing 2 fruits with 1 vegetable as I do. It taste great and gives you tons of energy.
Blueberries – in a study conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan, rats consuming only 2% of their diet in blueberries significantly reduced their abdominal fat within 90 days. This was a result of high percentage of antioxidants, agents that rid the body of toxins, naturally occurring in blueberries.
Grapefruit – Eating low-glycemic foods, such as grapefruit, for breakfast before exercising burns 50% more fat, as reported by a 2009 study in the ” Journal of Nutrition”.
Pomegranate – The juice in pomegranates ranked as the fruit with the most antioxidants, according to a research conducted by the University of California. Catechins found among the antooxidants in pomegranates increase fat-burning and speed up the body’s metabolism.
Watermelon – watermelon is over 90% water, helping to release toxins and fat in the body, as reported by North Carolina university. Watermelon contains the most lycopene compared to all other fruits and vegetables. L-citrulline, also found in watermelons help flush fats from the body.
