Hair-Healthy Diet feat. Black Eyed Beans…

We’ve been MIA sorta but we’re back and in this Post we’ll be looking at incorporating some foods that help boost hair growth into our diet. Hair healthy diet will affect the new growth and not the part of the hair already visible, it simply means when you consume some of these foods in a regular or good (not excessive) dose,the new hair growing under will be better, much stronger and healthier than the ones that you can see already. They help fortify the hair structure to avoid split ends and dry unhealthy hair.

Let’s dig in, you ready?

Shrimps are filled with Vitamins A, B6,B12, E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Iron,Calcium,Zinc, Potassium,Phosphorous, Iodine and Omega 3 Fatty acid. TheyThey are low in calories, zero carbs and contain Protein and water and thus are great food for people who want to lose weight.

Did you know that including Shrimps in your diet is very beneficial!The nutrients they contain contribute a lot to the health of hair as it contains Iron, Zinc and Vitamins which help create and maintain new cells, produce/ help in the circulation of blood to the scalp, thus preventing hair loss and increase healthy hair growth.

Black eyed Beans, one of my favorite foods btw (although I hated it growing up) are filled with Vitamins- A,B, C, Folic acid, Iron, Potassium, Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium, Copper, Phosphorous, Fiber and of course Protein…just as shrimps!

Eating them regularly can help you maintain a healthy hair and add shine to it. Because of the nutrients they contain they help fight hair loss and boost hair growth rate!! Since the hair has protein as a vital component,Keratin, imagine what eating foods with protein would do…hmmm? I think I might be eating more proteins in my diet, yourself?

They also help maintain cholesterol level, regulate blood sugar level, get rid of free radicals in the body and are very good for weight loss.

Here is a little recipe of how I like to make my Beans and Shrimps, you can try it out too.
