Honeyed Walnuts

Try this taste-tempting pair of simple recipes that “feed” your skin, from the inside out.

Honeyed Walnuts
Walnuts are packed with healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, and raw honey is the ultimate immune booster. Put them together, and you’ve got a power-packed sweet treat that couldn’t be easier to make.

2 walnuts, halved
1 tsp raw honey

Dip walnuts into honey. Enjoy!

Belly Bowl
This nutritious, quick and filling lunch combines the healthy fat of an avocado with the cancer-fighting properties of cabbage. Naturally fermented foods, like the sauerkraut called for in this recipe, are also beauty foods because they help digestion, and healthy digestion supports healthy skin.

1 avocado, halved, pit removed
2 heaping Tbsp of naturally fermented sauerkraut

Cut avocado into cubes and replace in its shell. Add sauerkraut to avocado cubes. Enjoy!
