3 Foods That Promote Beauty From The Inside Out (With Recipes)

Moon Juice's Amanda Chantal Bacon shares three foods she uses to promote beauty from the inside out, plus how to make them.

Sprouted Brazil Nut Milk

Brazil nuts are one of the most nutrient and mineral dense foods on the planet. They are both an incredible skin and brain food. Brazil nuts are a great source of plant protein as well as having an abundance of raw, good, beautifying fats. This is such an easy and tasty milk to make at home. It is perfect as is or can be used as a base for beautifying smoothies.

How to make it:

Start with one cup of brazil nuts that are soaked overnight and drained. Place brazil nuts with three cups of spring water, a small pinch of Himalayan salt, and a tablespoon of raw honey into a high-powered blender. Depending on strength of blender, blend for 30 to 60 seconds. Over a large bowl begin to slowly pour the mixture into a nut bag or tripled up cheese cloth. Gently squeeze the bottom of the bag to release the milk, this will take a few minutes to get all of the milk out. Store in glass jars inside your refrigerator up to three to five days.

Goji Berry Tea

Gojis are great for the skin, and are a powerful anti-aging agent. They regulate hormone production, and boost human growth hormone. This is an easy and delicious tonic that is naturally a little sweet. Goji berry tea is a great thing to pack in your water bottle throughout the day. Great warm, but is also wonderful on ice.

How to make it:

Bring two and a half cups of spring water to a boil. Add a half cup of goji berries, and remove from heat and cover. Let tea steep for fifteen minutes. Strain as you would a regular tea. I recommend brewing the super-potent tea a second and third time.

Fermented Coconut Yogurt

This flavorful yogurt curbs a sweet tooth, feeds the thyroid, is fat flushing, and metabolism boosting. It cleanses the intestines, which leads to glowing skin and eyes. It truly feeds the skin from the inside out.

How to make it:

Place into a high powered blender a pinch of probiotics and six ounces of coconut meat. This can be scraped from the inside of a Thai coconut or purchased separated and frozen. Blend on high with two ounces of water until silky smooth. Pour into a container with enough room for yogurt to grow. Cover and let sit out on your countertop overnight. Depending on your climate you may need to leave it out for more or less time. Fermentation is sped up by heat, and slowed down by lower temperatures. Store your yogurt in the refrigerator. Fermentation will continue once refrigerated. For those that like a more tangy yogurt, let it age in fridge.
