You know that saying "you are what you eat"? They were not kidding. You literally are what you eat since everything you put into your body becomes a part of not only your inner being but also shows on the outer fabric of your body as well.
Yes that means it is possible to eat foods that combat signs of aging, dehydration, acne, and dullness. This week we are making recipes that make your skin supple and plump like no other, because who doesn't want to start the new year with a rejuvenated moisturized complexion.
This morning we are starting with an all-time favorite, avocado breakfast toast.
Avocados help fight the aging process from within when eaten. The fruit is filled with antioxidants that will help detoxify your body and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Skin tip: apply mashed avocado to your face while enjoying this delicious breakfast for added benefits. The healthy fats in avocado will moisturize your skin and reduce inflammation.
2 organic quinoa cakes or slices of gluten-free bread, toasted
1/2 avocado, mashed
2-3 medium radishes, finely sliced
Olive oil to drizzle
Fresh cracked black pepper
Sea salt to taste
Divide all the ingredients between two toasts: spread mashed avocado then layer radish slices and top with garnish of choice like sprouts or chia seeds. Finish by drizzling a little olive oil, squeeze of lemon juice and salt and pepper. Enjoy immediately ;)
