Aging is a very scientifically complex process which involves many systems within our bodies. There is no ONE magic bullet, wrinkle cream, pill or substance which can reverse the aging process on its own. However, the body is capable of healing and repairing itself when it’s supported by good nutrition.
I used to be like many women who spent a huge amount of face creams that touted that it would give the youthful glow that you had in your teens and twenties.
What I came to realize that good skin is actually formed from the inside out, and it is what you put IN your body, that is as important as what you put ON your body to help you have that youthful glow.
This recipe is a variation of the Buddha Bowl that you’ll find on many recipe blogs. The Buddha bowl gets its name because the food is in a bowl which is packed so full that it has a rounded “belly” appearance on the top much like the belly of a Buddha.
My variation refers to anti aging because of the fact that it includes sweet potatoes and beets. Sweet Potatoes contain so much Vitamin A (retinol) which is one of the most widely acknowledged nutrients for healthy skin. Beets also contain Vitamin A, but are high in Vitamin C as well, which is a powerful anti-oxidant that helps fight signs of aging to keep your skin firm and youthful.
Are you ready to have your glowing skin? Then, here’s the recipe!
While this tastes best when fresh, it can be prepared in advance and kept in the fridge for a few days.
