Some of My ‘Fountain of Youth’ Food Favorites

There’s little doubt that we all would love to look and feel younger, especially if you’re over 40 (or even over 50 like me). Certain FoodTrients like omega-3 fatty acids and the Vitamins C & E are very good for building collagen, hydrating skin, keeping skin elastic, and helping to build strong nails and hair. Vitamin C also aids tissue regeneration, which is especially helpful after a facial, dermabrasion, or an acid peel. Citrus fruits, berries, melons, and peppers are all good sources. A spicy salsa with hot peppers and lime juice can be a real skin saver.

I recently wrote a blog about foods that help you look younger if you’d like more suggestions.

Vitamin A boosts the production of collagen, which strengthens skin and hair. Orange and yellow fruits and veggies are rich sources of carotenoids. I love mangos, papayas, jackfruit, and sweet potatoes. My Sweet Potato and Jackfruit Delight and Mango Tapioca recipes help build collagen and keep your skin young. Kale, spinach, and moringa leaves are also good sources of carotenoids, which convert to Vitamin A in our bodies.

In my new book, The AGE BEAUTIFULLY Cookbook, I’ve created even more powerful wrinkle-fighting dishes that you won’t want to miss, including a recipe for an Exotic Fruit Salad with Jackfruit and one for Moringa Chiffon Muffins. Yummy!
