Is it possible to get your beauty benefits from a protein packed, superfood bowl? On a consistent basis, eating this way will do wonders for your skin! Starting with the wild rice base and building up to the beta-carotene-rich sweet potatoes, probiotic tempeh, and sweet bite of dried cherry, this winter bowl contains essential minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants that promote younger-looking, more vibrant, and radiant skin.
I love using wild rice in a bowl because it contains up to 30 times more antioxidants that white rice, and these antioxidants equal major free-radical-neutralizing benefits. Why tempeh over animal-based protein? This fermented soybean has a whopping 16 grams of protein in as little as 3 ounces, and fermented soy products increase hyaluronic acid in your skin, the component that helps keep your skin firm, toned, and hydrated. Adding in a vitamin C and beta-carotene-rich sweet potato helps the body produce collagen that maintains the elasticity of youthful skin and protects against signs of aging. The addition of walnuts gives this bowl an omega-3-fatty-acids boost and omegas lock moisture and nutrients into the skin, helping it look plump and glowing.
Every ingredient in this bowl is exactly how one should be eating for a healthy, glowing complexion during these dry winter months!
