In many parts of Asia, especially in Chinese traditional cuisines… There are some strange foods that are said to make you more beautiful when you eat them.
I’ll be honest with you… they are delicious! 😋
So if you are curious, below are some of the strangest but most nutritious foods you can find that boosts your beauty inside and out:
1. Chicken Feet
Chicken feet are highly dense with natural collagen that are easily absorbed by our bodies.
As we age, our collagen production slows down. So supplementing through your diet helps to maintain your skin and hair’s beauty!
StingRay meat is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. They are great for regulating the skin's oil production and minimizing signs of aging!
Grasshoppers are among the most antioxidant-rich insects. A study showed that they are healthier than a glass of orange juice!
4. Fish Skin
Fish skin is a collagen treasure trove! It is a good source of vitamin E as well. Both contribute to healthy, glowy skin!
5. Birds “Saliva” Soup
This soup is a popular and expensive beauty dish in Southeast Asia. It is made from swiftlets' nests which are made from their saliva.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, it promotes good health, especially for the skin!
