This brussel sprouts salad is absolutely packed with nutrients that will do wonders for your skin, too. When people think of the benefits of foods they often think about the heart, digestive system, muscles bones and other internal organs, but not their skin. I oftentimes do the same, it’s only natural. Similarly if you ask someone how well they treat their skin they’ll likely only think of sunblock, moisturizers and other creams. Be mindful that the food you eat is very much correlated to the healthiness for all parts of your body, inside and out. Tomatoes, nuts and salmon are foods that do wonders for the whole body, including the skin. Some foods that benefit the skin may however surprise you, like chocolate.
