Watermelon Fruit Pizza
Over the years we have seen amazing plant-based alternatives to traditional foods like cauliflower "rice" and zucchini "noodles". This summer health reached a new level with this "fruit-based" alternative to a classic food we all love. Not only are these pizza slices vegan, gluten free, and any other healthy adjective you can think of to to describe a guilt-free dish, but they are also colorful and extremely creative.
Every bite of watermelon contains about 92% water and is one of the best foods to keep you hydrated while satisfying your sweet tooth. It also is full of the powerful carotenoid antioxidant lycopene, 1.5 times more than a raw tomato.
Mint adds a captivating aroma to this dish while also benefiting your skin. Rich in menthol and anti bacterial properties, this herb can help clear skin and keep you glowing from the inside out.
Another skin loving ingredient is fresh blueberries. These antioxidant superstars will protect your skin from harmful free radicals that can damage the collagen that keeps your skin firm.
Lastly, the kiwifruit, which has all sorts of hidden anti-aging benefits. Once you find out what they are you might catch yourself eating them more often. They are a very good source of vitamin E and vitamin C, both which counteract aging and improve overall skin health.
