Glowing Skin Salad
Seaweed is nature’s wonder food that gives your body B vitamins which have natural anti-inflammatory reducing properties that reduce the gathering of blood beneath the skin helping to reduce redness or swelling that may occur with acne or rosacea. Avocado helps to power up the absorption of fat soluble vitamins up to 400 x including vitamin E which gives your skin protection from oxidative cell damage. To bring a dose of sun to your salad anytime add sundried tomatoes! Just one cup of sun-dried tomatoes give your body 186% of your daily vitamin C to promote collagen formation and 16% of your daily iron needs. Lastly Brazil nuts are rich in selenium which help to reduce inflammation & androgens that increase the risk of acne while chia seeds give you a sprinkle of omega-3 fatty acids!
