If you’re on the search for the Fountain of Youth, like millions of other people, redirect your attention to these amazing functional superfoods that have been proven to slow the aging process through their nutrient dense, antioxidant rich and wrinkle-fighting compounds!  

I have also included simple ways to incorporate each of these foods into your diet!

Raspberries may be small, but don’t be fooled by their size; this tiny berry can do more for your skin than you think! Raspberries are a rich source of vitamin C, ellagic acid and anthocyanin. Raspberries provide a stronger base for forming collagen with an extra 50 percent of the vitamin C content of strawberries. 

Ellagic acid inhibits the formation of cancer-causing cells, reducing your risk of infection, and anthocyanins are a natural inflammation suppressant and collagen stabilizer. Yes, all of these benefits are bursting out of this little berry!

Pumpkin Seeds are one of the many wrinkle-fighting seeds out there. Packed with essential amino acids, zinc, vitamin E, copper and many more nutrients, pumpkin seeds are vital for vibrant skin. However, one of the greatest reasons to snack on pumpkin seeds is their high content of omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids reduce inflammation, redness and leave your skin good as new!

Rhubarb is a great (and underestimated) source of elasticity building nutrients to prevent fine lines and promote the growth of hair and fingernails. This vegetable is rich in silica, which is known as the source of youth for healthy bones, nails, hair and skin. Silica works as an anti-aging mechanism by allowing the body to absorb nutrients better, restoring collagen and elasticity, while fortifying blood vessels too.

How do you sneak these foods into your diet? Try these quick and easy tricks!

Raspberries? 1 handful in your green morning smoothie!

Pumpkin Seeds? 1 handful sprinkled on your salad

Rhubarb? Enjoy a vegan & gluten-free rhubarb pie by using 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour, ¼ tsp. baking powder, 1 tbsp. agave, 1 tbsp. ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp. water, ¼ cup of dairy-free melted buttery spread and cold water. For the complete recipe comment below!

Dear Indra Nooyi: ‘Having It All’ Is An Outdated Concept For This Generation

Like most people my age, I cruise Facebook to kill time. So when I saw an article about PepsiCo’s CEO Indra Nooyi discussing women “having it all,” I was intrigued. At a glance, Nooyi’s response appears progressive and refreshing. For a minute, I identified with her answers, so much so that I insisted my mother read […]
