BEAUTY BENEFITS OF PARSNIPS:
The beauty benefits of parsnips begin as potassium balances fluids in the body. This helps to maintain optimum levels of moisture in the skin, keeping it hydrated and smooth. Parsnips contain a nutrient called falcarinol which acts as both an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrient. This helps to rid the body of any damaging free radicals while giving you a smooth, clear toned complexion. Parsnips are great for cleansing the body as it is rich in fibre. This helps to maintain a radiant appearance, while copper helps to stimulate collagen and elastin formation, encouraging a revitalised complexion.
They can be eaten both raw (grated into a salad like celariac) and cooked, either baked, boiled, fried, steamed or roasted. Parsnips are even boiled in soup and then removed to provide a gorgeous subtle flavour.
Similar to potatoes, parsnips can either be eaten with the skin or peeled. When eaten with the skin don’t forget to scrub the outsides, and when peeling, peel a thin layer to ensure you retain as many nutrients as possible. Choose ones medium in size to enhance both the beauty benefits of parsnips and their taste as large ones often have a musty, woody core.
