Top 7 Beauty Foods!
So recently, I’ve been focusing on my health. Knowing how to eat certainly does help in reaching all of my health goals for the next year, even though 2015 is not here yet!  Since I’ve started my new years resolutions a few months early, I thought I’d chime in on all the things I’ve learned since eating better and working out!  What we put in our bodies greatly affects our skin, hair and overall health. I know you have heard that fruits and veggies do a body good, but has anyone ever explained why? Here are my top picks of foods you should be eating to achieve a healthy beauty glow!  
1. Radishes
radishes-03 I hate theses in my salads, but after learning about the great health effects radishes provide, I started to add them to my salads regardless. Since then I’ve learned to like them; Radishes are packed with vitamin C, sulfur and silicon, all of them responsible for producing glowing skin by invigorating our circulatory systems. The increased blood flow results in a boost of collagen  
2. Onions

The truth of the matter is that onions contain the flavanol quercetin which aids in protecting the skin against lines and wrinkles. Onions are also abundant in antioxidants which protect our skin from harmful UVB rays.  
3. Avocado
