Greens are the most fast and fabulous beauty food and when combined with fruit, vegetables & seeds or cheese they are bursting with flavour and phytonutrients to help your skin look the best. We all know we need greens daily – but who has time to make a green smoothie every work day morning? Instead, toss leaves together, add some goodies, drizzle with an oil & a tasty ‘vinegar’ and relax in the evening knowing you will wake with wonderful skin!
Why green? Because it creates gorgeous skin, supercharges your energy and helps to keeps you clean by eliminating waste. Greens – spinach, rocket, parsley, watercress, beet leaves etc are packed with antioxidants to that stop free radicals from causing wrinkle-forming damage to your skin. They are also loaded with vitamins eg Spinach contains A, K & C not to mention minerals such as iron essential for carrying oxygen around your body and producing energy – essential for skin repair and regeneration. Greens also provide stress-fighting B vitamins. If you do things like combining Spinach (iron) with citrus (vitamin C) they will work well together, allowing for optimal nutrient absorption in your body.
