Skin Food Salad

Wondering what to put in your salad besides the usual suspects — tomato, cucumber, and lettuce? They are great ingredients don’t get us wrong but we encourage you to vary your salads with some great skin-loving produce.

Zucchini contains manganese that is essential in the production of choline, an amino acid which plays an important role in the formation of collagen.

Almonds are high in antioxidants, omega fatty acids, and protein that help fill you up.

Garbanzo beans satisfies you longer and stabilizes your appetite by way of improving your blood sugar regulation. They also contain a remarkable mix of antioxidants and phytonutrients to battle free radical damage and nourish the skin.

We’ve also got a tasty but simple dressing that would incorporate our Sparkle Skin Boost Orange Flavor Powder in a subtle way.

 

Salad recipe:

  • ½ cup cooked garbanzo beans
  • Handful of chopped raw almonds
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup mixed baby leaves
  • Olive oil for brushing

 

Dressing:

 

Brush zucchini slices with a little olive oil and lightly grill for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees F (or 170 degrees C) in the oven.

For the dressing, throw the ingredients in to a blender or food processor. Gradually add water to achieve the level of creaminess you desire for your dressing.

Coat the garbanzo beans with the dressing and pour the mixture onto the salad.

This makes a great side salad to share at meals, or if you want to beef it up a little, add grilled salmon, or if you are vegetarian, top it with avocado — both of which are wonderful “skin foods”.
