Growing up you may have gotten many lectures from your parents about eating your fruits and veggies. And, if you were a picky eater like me, then you pretty much have them memorized.

But as annoying as it was to have to scarf down some brussel sprouts– they were right.

Our bodies need a wide array of nutrients to keep it functioning properly… Because if not, it begins to go haywire.

When it comes to our hair, we need 13 different types of nutrients to be able to sustain its natural function. For example, without enough proteins, our hair begins to thin out.

Lack of iron can affect both the quality and flow of blood, causing the follicle to weaken.

Here is just a few of the most important nutrients our hair needs to be healthy and stable:

  • Macronutrients: Protein
  • Minerals: Iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium
  • Vitamins: D, B-complex (Biotin, Niacin, Folate), C, E, A
  • Essential Fatty Acids: Omega-3 and Omega-6

In fact, biotin, one of keratin’s most important building blocks, is almost exclusively provided by our diet. Without enough biotin, our scalp begins to shed excessive amounts of hair.

And it’s not just the food we eat…

But the liquids we drink too!

Raise your hand if you’re terrible at your water intake – I know I am. Dehydration can lead to problems in the scalp like dandruff and weakened follicles. Your hair strands also become weak and brittle because there is not enough water to retain.

Alcohol consumption can also affect how our body absorbs and retains nutrients…

Too much alcohol use can lead to an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which has also been known to cause hair loss.

I know that sometimes busy lifestyles can disrupt our eating habits. Let’s face it, sometimes we want to go home from work and pig out on a bag of chips.. After all, the kitchen is the last place I want to be after working for 8 hours straight.

A good rule of thumb as always, is to aim for three meals a day that are full of fruits, veggies, and proteins.

Here are my top three favorite choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (plus a snack if you’re feeling up for it):
