7 Freaky and Unexpected Foods That Will Boost Your Beauty ...


Most of us know of common foods that boost your beauty, such as berries, veggies and avocados, but I bet you didn’t know that some of the most unusual and quite honestly freaky looking foods can be some of the most potent beauty boosters of all. I will admit, I love finding functional foods. You know what I mean, right? Foods that don’t just taste good, but that also do more for you than tickle your taste buds. I want my food to work for me in more ways that one if I’m spending my hard earned money on it, right? Well, these freaky and unexpected foods below are some of my favorite examples of functional foods. Though you don't necessarily need these to be healthy, if you see them in stores, don't shy away from them at first glance. These odd looking foods that boost your beauty help prevent aging, sun damage, acne, scarring and dryness. Oh and trust me, when you see the results, you won’t mind one bit that they seem a little weird, though you might get some strange looks from your friends and family!

1. Algae


One of the most potent and powerful foods that boost your beauty is algae! Yes girls, you know that green stuff from the ocean that you picture as aquarium slime? Well, don’t worry, I’m not asking you to eat THAT algae. What I am referring to are sea algae, or sea veggies, such as Blue Kamath algae, kelp, dulse, spirulina and chlorella. These algae come from the deep waters of certain oceans and seas, and are the most incredible source of beautifying chlorophyll, which explains their deep, dark green and blue hues. These foods are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, which promote smooth skin that is free of wrinkles, and fight acne at the same time. The chlorophyll pigments in these algae also help to detoxify the entire body and the skin, producing clear, vibrant and wrinkle-free skin. Since these come from the deep waters of the world, they do smell like the ocean, so beware. They are best enjoyed in powder form, blended in a smoothie that is covered by a sweetness from either bananas or stevia. You can even buy them in noodle form, and some of my favorites are kelp noodles, which are mild in taste, virtually calorie-free, and have the same mouth-feel as spaghetti. They can also be consumed in a convenient tablet form. You’ll see results in under a week and you won’t ever have to buy acne medication or wrinkle cream again when you consume these in conjunction with a healthy diet and on a regular basis. I use spirulina every single day in my smoothies. It promotes cleansing, anti-aging benefits, fights acne, gives me energy, contains tons of iron to prevent fatigue and anemia, and contains 80% of your daily Vitamin B12 in just 1 teaspoon. It is also the richest source of protein per tablespoon of any food on Earth.
