Fruit: The Ultimate Beauty Food
by Kimberly Snyder, C.N., author of The Beauty Detox Solution (Harlequin Nonfiction)
Editor’s Note: For each New Year, New You post we’ve asked a Harlequin Nonfiction and fiction author to share their New Year’s resolution. For today’s post authors Kimberly Snyder and Maureen Child have shared theirs!
Kimberly Snyder’s resolution:
“I believe every day is an opportunity for all of us to create new patterns and accomplish our health and beauty goals. But New Year’s is a special time to refocus on what we want, and my personal resolution is to be more present while eating. It is easy to eat while working on the computer or on the go, but fully committing to eating is better for digestion and helps us respect the food we eat.”
Maureen Child’s resolution:
“I resolve to spend more time with my family and to remember to be grateful for all of the gifts in my life…”
Fruit is the most life-enhancing food we can put into our bodies, and it’s an easy, delicious way to get a new glow for the New Year. It has the highest water content of any of the food groups and supplies us with vital amino acids, minerals, vitamins and fatty acids. Because fruit breaks down the fastest in our system, while leaving no toxic residue, it supplies us with readily available energy that can be used to immediate fuel. Of all foods, fruit is the strongest cleanser. We can think of fruits as the cleansers for the body and greens and other vegetables as the builders. Fruit helps to dissolve toxic substances and cleanse our tissues and system, stirring up old toxic residue inside of our bodies.
