Healthy Food for Healthy Skin: The Recipe Roundup


If there’s something we love more than skin care (believe us, there are very few things that top the list), it’s food. We’re willing to admit that yes, you should eat to live, but mindful eating allows you to live to eat. Yes, we can have it all: we can be happy and healthy and have beautiful skin! 

Here’s what’s on our anti-aging, skin-brightening menu this week:

BREAKFASTBreakfast 2

Through the Garden Smoothie (via Nutrition Stripped)

There couldn’t have been a better name for this. When you’re in the mood for a light, pick-me-up breakfast or instant refresher throughout the day, this is the smoothie to make. You’ve got your beets, your baby spinach, red pepper, green apple, strawberries, lemon juice, bee pollen—all packed with minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.


LUNCHLunch 2

Fully Loaded Spring Samosas (via My New Roots)

 Are you drooling too? (Don’t leave us hanging, here.) Samosas are fun to make, indulgent to eat, but the best part about this one? It’s baked—not deep-fried—and not to mention, packed with all our favorite, good-for-you veggies.


DINNERDinner 2

Ultimate Green Taco Wraps with Lentil-Walnut Taco ‘Meat’ (via Oh She Glows)

Tacos are the ultimate indulgence—so when they’re vegan, gluten-free, and all-around healthy, you can bet that we were all over this on Taco Tuesday. You’ve got the leafy greens, the antioxidant-rich red veggies, and the star of the show—omega 3-packed walnuts—for beautiful, glowing skin.
