Healthy Food for your Skin

Healthy foods for your skin.....   
How on earth do we go about finding healthy food for our skin?
I will not bother regurgitating the whole blog post from another blog to you... and i wont pretend i know what i am talking about when it comes to nutrition! haha  but i did give you the link so you can see it for yourself, and start living healthier....

But it isnt just living healthier, it is growing in simplicity. Living in such a Pop Tart-Cheese Whiz- Spaghetti in a Box- world is not the way it used to be. Think about "Little House" days.... when the families of the pioneer time used to breed, raise, butcher, cure, and then eat their own food. There was a higher sodium content when it came to curing, but it is no more than what is in one pack of Ramen Noodle Soup i assure you!

They may have had canned foods as well then... but they did not have the preservatives inside those containers.... no way! They stuck to the freshly harvested or the home grown produce and canned using natural jellies like Pectin.... and natural color and taste preservatives like plain old Lemon Juice!  Really!

Go to your local Farmer's Market.... it will probably be just as much to can ( maybe a littleeee more) as to buy cheetos, whole can "grade A" potatoes, and frozen pizzas as it will to make your own sauce, or can your own home grown or locally grown produce!

It is also ten million times healthier, trust me!  Living healthy and simply isnt a scary process, just one we are not used to. I promise the benefits long term outweigh the small cost increase of canning jars and the preparation work. Please consider looking into canning and home preserving even little things- Preserves, for instance. Or maybe making Applesauce instead of buying the Fructose laden versions at the store.

Ball Canning products are perhaps the most widely used brand for canning supplies, and can be found most anywhere.  is a great website that can help with illustrations for canning things. But they also give advice for freezing foods. This is perfect for people who do not have much time on their hands to can, but still want fresh foods in winter! Freezing is less work than canning most items, and is pretty simple too!
