RE: Skin Benefits

There are so many benefits to a plant based diet to talk about...but the skin health benefit is so obvious I think it needs more discusssion...
My wife and I both wish we had known about it when we were teenagers...we both feel like we look 10 years younger even now. I hope some teenagers are eating plants and have experienced the difference. To have good skin at that age might be life changing!
We also, like to think about, if the "outside" (skin) looks this good - imagine how good the "inside" looks!
What an upper this Saturday morning! Thanks for your post.
A WFPB diet that eliminates so many empty calories is feeding your skin with all those phytochemicals - no wonder! PLUS - and this is big - we are getting a lot of 'purified' water content in our food. This is why when our diets are full of fruits, veggies, starchy veggies and intact whole grains that have a lot of water in them - we don't have to think so much about 'drinking xyz number of glasses of water a day'.
Congrats on your successes!
