The fairytales speak nothing about Rapunzel’s diet. But whatever that may have been, the witch had at least fed her a very balanced one. There is hardly anything that can compete with well-balanced meals that are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, iron and all the other essential ingredients. Dawn Jackson Blatner, a registered dietician and author of The Flexitarian Diet says, “Pump up the protein”. According to Dawn if protein is included in each meal and snack, it will make the hair follicles really strong. And that’s what is needed. A strong hair follicle is like a stable foundation to your house. The stronger it is, the better can it hold the construction.
