Eating For Beauty - How to do it
What is beauty? Find out in the September 2012 edition of “Metro Proponent” which focuses on Education and Beauty. Robin Emmons, executive director of the Charlotte nonprofit Sow Much Good, describes how people can eat for beauty.
Robin Emmons starts by sharing the five universal concerns most people discuss about their bodies and how foods can help these areas. The concern areas are: skin, the largest organ and the first thing people see; hair, which is referred to as a person’s crown; eyes, the portals to someone’s soul; mind, people’s creative center and energy, how we show up in the world.
Robin listed a number of foods that helps these areas such as blueberries, wild caught salmon, spinach, kale, collards, oysters and tomatoes. In the article she describes each food and its natural vitamins, anti-oxidants and more that are needed by your body to look vibrant.
Sow Much Good is a Charlotte non-profit that provides access to fresh, organic produce to underserved communities in the region. Emmons speaks to communities and organizations about the importance of eating chemical free foods. “Diabetes, obesity and hypertension are no one’s birth right,” says the executive director. By changing diets to include more leafy vegetables and fruit, people can change the entire direction of their health. And if this change includes making their skin more vibrant, hair healthier, eyes and minds sharper as well as increase energy levels – than everyone should be on board to eat better.
