You actually don’t have to eat instant noodles during this period. Be creative with your food and plan something that will provide more benefit than harm. It’s not difficult.
Hello! My name is Zell. In this article, it will be part 3 of this food series - Food that are good for hair. Since most of us are eating from home every day, why not learn more about food and how it can benefit you more? The future you will thank you for making this good decision. Haha.
I’m a huge believer in how your diet directly affects your life. It’s like a chain effect, if you frequently consume foods that are high in fats, it will be difficult to keep your weight constant because that’s what those foods are meant for, to increase your weight. Audit your everyday food choices, do you eat things that you like or do you eat things that your body actually needs? Think about it.
Let’s do a recap of the food I mentioned in the previous series.
Part 1 (you can read it here)
Egg - Great source of protein and biotin
Salmon - Omega-3 and vitamin D
Avocado - Vitamin E, encourage hair growth
Oyster - High amount of zinc, prevent hair loss
Carrot - Contain many different nutrients, vitamin A, K, B6, B1, etc
Part 2 (you can read it here)
Apple - Antioxidant and phenolic
Soybean - Spermidine, prolong anagen phase, increase the average life of hair
Sweet Potato - Beta-carotene, converts to vitamin A
Grape - Detoxify the body and prevent hair fall
And here are the next 4 food for this part 3 of the food series:
I’m quite happy that I have a couple of friends (and even customers) who are eating oats frequently. Overnight oats or morning oats, they are all packed with nutrients. For a start, oats have a high amount of zinc, biotin, and magnesium. And what does it mean?
Magnesium is a very important mineral as it helps with over 300 enzyme reactions in our bodies including muscle and nerve function. Also, it helps to maintain a healthy rhythm for the heart. For our hair, magnesium acts as nature’s anti-stress mineral that helps to promote healthy hair growth and reduce hair loss.
And a very good contributing factor to promoting oats is that you can add fruits to your oats. Just slice up a banana, some grapes, throw it all inside and you will have a good breakfast that your hair and body will love.
Fun fact: There are actually 103 species of strawberry plants and they have very beautiful names such as Earliglow, Tristar and Sparkle. Sparkle strawberries are usually used to make strawberry jams as they are deep red and have great flavors. Learn something new? Remember to give this post a like! :)
Honestly, don’t you think strawberries are very pretty? It looks very nice to me especially with the deep shade of red and the sourish sweet taste. I feel like buying a box of strawberries home now.
Strawberries contain silica and that helps to prevent baldness and stimulate hair growth. As a fruit, it also contains vitamin c and that helps with the production of collagen. Besides, it also contains phytochemicals. It is a heart-healthy booster that reduces inflammation and prevents any build-up of bad cholesterol in the blood.
All in all, eating strawberries regularly will allow your hair to remain thick and healthy and your heart to remain healthy.
Before I type anything, let me answer your question first, no, I did not get this inspiration from watching popeye the sailor man. Haha. I like eating spinach because it looks really greeny and healthy, don’t you think so?
Spinach is good for your scalp as it is rich in iron. As mentioned in previous articles, iron helps red blood cells carry oxygen to the hair and body. It is rich in vitamin A too. A simple 30 grams of spinach provides up to 54% of your daily vitamin A needs, how good is that?
It also contains Calcium (bone health), Folic acid (tissue growth) and Lutein (eye health). It seems to me like a vegetable that provides a well-rounded and decent amount of nutrients that almost protects everything.
I used to dislike eating pineapples because it stings the tongue so much. It feels like multiple needles are piercing my tongue passively and it feels a little uncomfortable. Slowly, I realized that I might be eating a little too much. The sting is caused by a plant protease enzyme called bromelain where it slowly digests the tender skin inside of your mouth. It sounds like a horror movie. :O
On a brighter note, bromelain helps to relieve sinus problems and reduce inflammation/clogging so it’s not that bad afterall. If your scalp is easily clogged with dead skin due to dermatitis or psoriasis, you can consider consuming a small amount of pineapple regularly.
Other than that, Pineapples contain Vitamin B1 and B6 where both contribute to the overall health of the hair and it helps to prevent dehydration of the scalp and hair, and it regulates the production of sebum.
In conclusion, there are a lot of things you can eat together, such as oats, strawberries, and pineapples. That makes it a very good and nutritious breakfast. On alternate days, you can have eggs for breakfast too. For dinner, you can have grilled salmon and carrots or sweet potatoes as your sides. Be creative with your food. It is actually do-able and fun to create a dinner that both you and your body will like and need.
