Eat Your Greens
Getting a daily serving of greens (such as spinach, kale, or broccoli) is a simple way to brighten your complexion and fight aging. These dark greens are packed with carotenoids that contribute to healthy, perky skin. As a bonus, a daily dose of fiber rich greens will promote fat loss – especially when you eat these greens instead of a calorie dense side, such as rice or potatoes. Start with the tasty spinach salad recipe below courtesy of RealHealthyRecipes.com
Refreshing! That is the first word that comes to mind from a blissful bite of this salad.
