Foods to Eat to Keep You Beautiful on the Inside & Out

On March 12, 2017

We sat down with Tricia Williams, executive chef and founder of Food Matters NYC, who has recommended foods that will help you stay beautiful from the inside out – no matter your age!

Food Matters NYC uses the following in their customized organic meal delivery service to help their clients’ look and feel better – from more radiant skin, to brighter eyes, to healthier nails and hair:

  • Activated Charcoal – Detoxifier

o   Commonly taken as supplement, Tricia takes a more innovative approach by using as a coating for chicken or salmon, or for drinks such as Black Charcoal Lemonade

  • Full Fat – Keeps skin soft and supple     

o   Cooking with ingredients like avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, and grass feed beef tallow, not only helps the skin, but also helps you stay fuller longer

  • Collagen – For Healthy Hair, Nails, and Bones

o   Bone broth is an easy way Tricia recommends to work this into one’s diet, but for a more fun approach, she also uses grass fed gelatin to make puddings, jello, and marshmallows

  • Dark Chocolate– Key source of flavonoids

o   For the greatest benefit, its best to eat 75% dark chocolate raw without refined sugar added, but Tricia also often uses cocoa powder in puddings and desserts, as well as in Mexican-style chicken dishes as a mole sauce

  • Berrie– Great source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories

o   Packed with Vitamin C to help the skin, Tricia uses berries daily in her dishes – choosing from whatever is in season at the time
