Foods that Fight Wrinkles

I found a few delicious foods that seem to be on every list discussing the reversal and/or the prevention of signs of aging, like wrinkles.

Tomatoes

  • Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant found in various plants. It has the ability to fight free radicals that damage cells and cause redness of the skin.

My favorite way to incorporate tomatoes into my diet: 

Avocado Toast! I spread half an avocado on sprouted toast. Then add sliced tomatoes, arugula, and crushed pepper on top.

I lazy way to eat tomatoes is I buy a can of Hunt’s basil and garlic tomatoes with No Salt Added! It tastes so amazing just as it is. I pour it into a cute dish and enjoy with Rice Crackers. Mui Delicioso!

Blueberries

  • Blueberries have an ample amount of Vitamin C in them. Vitamin C can strengthen the formation of collagen which is needed in your skin to prevent wrinkles. They also contain Phytochemicals that fight off skin-damaging free radicals in our bodies similar to the lycopene in tomatoes.
How I fit blueberries into my diet every day:
I blend a cup of blueberries into my smoothie or top off my coconut yogurt with blueberries and flaxseed. So Healthy!
 

Spinach

  • A Phytochemical called Lutein is found in spinach that has been said to prevent macular degeneration associated with aging. It may also help regenerate Vitamin C and Vitamin E in our bodies that are both essential in strengthening and protecting skin.
Spinach Idea:
Mix a handful of spinach with your favorite lettuce or cabbage salad. This way, you are getting the benefits of spinach without it taking over the flavor of your dish.
