This is what I made for dinner today. It's really quick & easy to prepare and of course super healthy ;)
As I am sure you beauty-smarties know, food has such a big impact on our bodies and on our looks. Glowing skin, healthy hair, strong nails and bones are derived from healthy food choices. It's so good to include fruit and veggies in your diet and of course lots of water. If you take care of your body, it will take care of you. All the ingredient used to make this are cancer fighting, and oh-so-good for your body. Here's a little breakdown:
This is an ancient power food and/or "super grain". It's a great source of protein and it is a healthy gluten-free carbohydrate, so it will give you energy.
Tomatoes are great for your skin in particular because they contain a lot of vitamin C and they are packed with powerful antioxidants to help keep your body healthy. They also contain a lot of vitamin A and K which are also good for your eyes and hair. I sometimes just slice up a tomato if I want something healthy to snack on.
A really healthy fat containing a lot of vitamin E, which is great for your skin and hair.
I love the crunchiness of celery, especially combined with softer foods like avocado and tomato. Celery is great for reducing inflammation and water weight in the body. It also has a lot of antioxidants and is rich in fiber.
And you can of course add chicken or turkey breast for extra protein and/or any other veggie you'd like, such as cucumber, bell peppers, sweet potato etc.
Preparation: Cook quinoa in chicken stock (organic, low sodium, as natural as possible) or water, for about 15-20 mins. Slice up tomato, avocado, celery (or any other veggie), and add to the cooked quinoa, et voila :)
I always make a little extra to keep for the next couple of days. This requires minimal effort :) so it's a super easy dish to whip together if you want something healthy to eat or just to snack on.
