So now you’ve got ali those tasty breakfasts
to enjoy, here are some delicious ideas for
a skin-feeding lunch. l’ve offered recipes
that are ali suitable for eating at work, so
there’s no excuse for not taking a healthy
packed lunch. When your colleagues notice
how gorgeous your skin is and how much
younger you’re starting to look, they’ll all

be wanting to eat what you bring in. These
dishes are also great for dinner-time too.
lt is better to eat lightly at the end of the
day, as stodgy heavy meals can make the
body and mind lethargic.

The great thing with eating this way is
that because all the foods are so healthy it
doesn’t matter if you just want a pudding
for diru,er or just a smoothie for lunch,
you’ll stili be packing the body ful! of vital
nutrients which will make you glow inside
and out. You may have noticed that most
of these foods are raw. This is no accident:
raw foods are the best building materials
for the body, and by eating at least 50% of
your diet raw you can be sure that beautiful
skin and super-health are easily achievable
