Read on as we enlist 10 foods that are absolutely important for your health and beauty…   
 

Yoghurt

Yoghurt

If you do not like a bowl of plain yoghurt, try the assortments of flavours available in the supermarket. You are sure to find a flavour you will absolutely love. If you are looking for a homely alternative try churning yoghurt with water, salt and some fresh coriander. This is your perfect post-dinner drink.

 

Greens

Greens

Greens are great for your health and your gut. It is very easy for your digestive system to digest and absorb all nutrient values in them. They are filled with antioxidants, minerals and everything that is a boon for your body. If you are vegetarian greens are the best source to load your body with proteins and fibres. 

 

Almonds

Almonds

 
Dry fruits can cause heat to develop in your body. But almonds have a very low tendency of causing any exothermic reactions in your body. They have almost every vitamin in them which makes it a versatile option to fight any vitamin deficiencies.

 

Fish

Fish

Fish is full of proteins. And protein is the main base in the formation of any bond in your body. It is essential in the formation of derivatives that make the core of your body. A protein diet is the best way to boost your hair and nails with keratin.

 

Meat

Meat

If you are the kind that just needs an excuse to grab a bite of chicken, then here is a great one. Get your protein fixed with meat. Not getting enough of this nutrient in your diet means that your body will limit the amount available for hair follicles. This eventually leads to hair breakage and hair loss.

 

Eggs

Eggs

If you are looking for something light and quick to fix your protein intake try eggs. They are also a good source of potassium and calcium, two more nutrients that work to keep your hair healthy. This chock-full of biotin keeps your nails healthy and gives your skin a glow.

 

Lemon

Lemon

Nothing is better than starting your day with a glass of lemon water. This is a beauty trick that the likes of Cindy Crawford and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by. Lemon helps in maintaining the pH levels in your body and cleans your gut.

 

Whole grains

Whole grains

Eating whole-grain foods made from cereal grains that include the whole kernel can help protect you from most of the diseases. A portion of wheat, rice, barley, or corn is a way to ensure your body gets charged with energy.

 

Fruits

Fruits

You probably saw this coming. Fruits are the best way to maintain the nutritional balance in your body. You can eat one fruit of your choice daily. Fruits provide vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They also hydrate your body and provide you with fibre which fills you up.

 

Salads

Salads

Salads are the best way to start your meal. A few slices of tomato, cucumber and carrots with a dash of lemon and coriander are enough to make your gut happier than anything else.
