Chocolate Pancake with Fresh Fruits & Yogurt

The saying “You are what you eat” is thrown around lightly but actually, it has real grass roots! It was written by German physiologist Anthelme Brillat-Bravarin in 1826 but was introduced into the English language in the 1920’s by nutritionist Victor Lindlahr. The saying itself is very true simply because the body, like a machine, needs good fuel to function well. Feed it with constant grease, fat, sugar and starch and it won’t perform well, neither will it look good. Your organs, including your skin (the biggest of all organs), need good quality food and actually, the first thing you notice when you don’t eat well is how your skin reacts. It’s no surprise that your skin is a good indicator as to how healthy you are. People remark on whether you look tired, unwell or run down according to how your skin looks. When it’s grey or sallow, it’s either down to being unwell or because you’re just not looking after yourself well enough! When it’s spotty, it’s more than likely because it’s over-producing sebum (the skin’s natural oil) because it’s cluttered up with excess grease from fatty food.
