Super Food for glowing skin

I love this 3 day menu by Dr Perricone so much. I used it before my wedding day and now like to do it every so often before a big shoot or event.

The Three-Day Nutritional meal plan helps with the elimination of puffiness, increases contours, firms jaw line, etc. You must eat salmon twice a day for the ideal effects of the DMAE, astaxanthin and the essential fatty acids in the salmon to take effect. This will increase radiance, glow and firmness to the skin.

Breakfast
  • 3 egg omelet and/or 4-6 oz. grilled salmon. I do not recommend smoked salmon or lox on the three-day diet because of the salt intake.
  • ½ cup cooked oatmeal (not instant). Cooked oatmeal is a great source of fiber, low glycemic carbohydrates
  • 2” wedge of cantaloupe or 1/3 cup fresh berries. Cantaloupe is very hydrating to the skin and contains important antioxidants – blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries are high in antioxidants
  • No Juice, No Coffee or Toast. If you normally drink large amounts of coffee, drink black or green tea to prevent caffeine withdrawal.
  • 8 – 12 oz. spring water
Lunch
  • 4-6 oz. grilled salmon. Option: you can also use canned salmon and mix a little mayo and fresh squeezed lemon
  • 2 cups green salad made with romaine lettuce or other dark leafy greens. Dressing: extra virgin olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon to taste
  • 1 kiwi fruit or cantaloupe and berries as above
  • 8 – 12 oz. spring water
Snack
  • 1 apple
  • 2 oz. slice of turkey breast or 6 oz. plain yogurt
  • Small handful of hazelnuts, walnuts or almonds. Great source of fatty acids and folic acid
Dinner
  • 4-6 oz. grilled salmon
  • green salad as described above
  • ½ cup steamed veggies. Especially asparagus, broccoli, spinach, etc. NO root vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, etc
  • Cantaloupe and berries
  • 8 – 12 oz. spring water
Before Bedtime Snack
  • 1 pear or apple
  • 2 oz. slice chicken or turkey breast or 6 oz. plain yogurt
  • Small handful of hazelnuts, walnuts or almonds. Great source of fatty acids and folic acid

Bon Appétit!

Love,
