Skin Care Recipes
Most skin care recipes are based on a low on a glycemic index. These beauty recipes listed below are a sample of how well you can eat when following a clear skin diet.
No Portion Restrictions for Good Diet Recipes
These skin care recipes don’t provide exact portions, because everyone is different and has different appetites. This not a weight loss diet, but an sample diet to teach you how to select low glycemic foods and incorporate them into your daily menu.
Many people have even lost weight using this type of diet because it satisfies your hunger much longer.
First Rule For Beauty Recipes -- No White Foods
The basis for all good skin care recipes is simple -- you want to make sure you‘re eating low glycemic foods. That means you need to avoid processed white foods. Opt for whole grain, whole wheat or stone ground.
This is especially true when it comes to breads, cereals and pasta. Be very careful when selecting breads, don’t trust the label. Read the ingredients on the back.
The first word should say Whole grain, Whole wheat or stone ground whole wheat. These breads taste better, take longer to chew, satisfy your appetite longer and can even help you lose weight.
My favorite pita bread is Toufayan Hearth Baked Pita Whole Wheat bread.
The best part of a healthy skin diet is that you don't have to limit portions or worry about eating totally boring low-fat foods. Low fat, high carbohydrate foods actually spike your insulin levels and sets off a cascade of skin destroying hormones -- not to mention increases body fat. This diet is especially benefical for diabetics.
The Skin recipes listed below is just a one day sample, you should refer to the Diet Solution for more detailed information.

- 1 serving of your choice of a whole grain breakfast cereal and one tablespoon of flaxseeds sprinkled on top.

You can modify this skin care recipe by switching the cereal for low fat yogurt.

- Any kind and as much as possible mixed salad leaves, greens, tomatoes, and black olives.
- Wasa crispbread, which is very low in the GI index, served with a couple tablespoons of hummus and an apple or plum. You can also have a low fat cheese sticks or all natural peanut butter (without sugar) with the crackers.

- Marinade them for 30 minutes in a mixture of vinegar, lemon juice, small amount of olive oil. And any other seasoning you’d like to add. I like Lots of garlic.
- Slice a medium onion and green pepper. Now begin alternating onion and green pepper slices along with grape tomatoes and chicken chunks on a skewer.
- Then grill until chicken is cooked. Service with toasted whole wheat or stone ground pita bread and hummus or a chickpea salad.
- One can of chickpeas – drained. Mix with chopped onions, green pepper, black olives, and crushed garlic (if you like garlic).
