Beauty superfoods that also boost immunity

Beauty superfoods that also boost immunity

You might not be able to have your cake and eat it, too. But you can have your superfoods and eat them, too. 

The power of superfoods is what they give your body, inside and out. The most powerful ones are not only great at giving you health and beauty building nutrients, but they also boost your immune system. 

The best superfoods for beauty and immunity

Strengthening your body from the inside out means fueling it with nutrients that support health and build immunities. 

When you’ve created a solid foundation of nutrition that’s fueled by the best ingredients, you’ll begin to notice the results externally. You’ll literally glow with health and vibrant energy. 

So, what foods should you be eating to look and feel better?

Ginger. A natural antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties, ginger root, has long been known to have soothing properties for the digestive system as well as the skin.

Blueberries. The natural antioxidants in blueberries help you ward off free radicals (which can cause cancer) and fight premature skin aging. 

Coconut. Coconut is high in omega 3s, which are the essential fatty acids that keep your skin soft and your hair shiny. Using coconut oil gives your body quick energy that encourages your body to burn fat, and it also raises your good cholesterol, which may lower your risk for heart disease.

Blue spirulina. Rich in chlorophyll, this nutrient helps your hair and nails grow while also loading your body up with powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. 

Chia seeds. A little chia goes a long way. These tiny seeds are filled with omega 3 fatty acids and, and like coconut and a lot of fatty fish, they’re great for your heart health. 

Salmon. Speaking of fatty fish, this list would be remiss without salmon. The fish with the highest levels of omega 3s are salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines, and albacore tuna. All of these aquatic foods are great for your health, but salmon is one of the most accessible and a favorite meal for many.

Avocados. High levels of healthy oils and vitamin E make avocados a favorite of your skin by improving barrier function and hydration.

Spinach. Not just spinach, but all leafy greens are loaded with nutrients that improve blood circulation and coagulation while also reducing inflammation. One reason to include more spinach specifically, it contains zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that protects your skin and evens out your skin tone, so you look radiant. 

Citrus. Citrus covers a lot of food like oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, but those are all wonderful sources of vitamin C. This vitamin is known for its immunity building abilities, but it can also calm inflammation, lighten dark spots, and even out your skin tone.

Tomatoes. These ripe, red beauties are packed with lycopene, an anti-aging antioxidant that can also help prevent heart disease and keep you healthy and strong. 

Ways to add more superfoods to your diet: Superfood recipe ideas

Now that you’ve got your grocery list of superfoods that will help boost your immune system while improving your appearance, it’s time to dive into ways to incorporate these foods into your life. These meals will have you coming back for seconds.

Smoothies

There are more than a handful of ingredients in the superfoods list that can be combined to make incredible smoothies, and we highly encourage you to try your hand at creating your favorites. Here are a couple tips to start off with. 

Watch the calories. Smoothies can be very high in calories.

Freeze berries and bananas. To get a chilly smoothie, freeze some of your ingredients before adding them.

Add Foundation Beauty Elixir. An added boost of nutrients in a powder form that doesn’t pile on the calories sounds perfect!

Pineapple, oranges, and bananas. These fruits help reduce the bitterness of some ingredients.

Avocados. This superfood creates a delightful texture (but watch those calories)

Salmon with coconut and ginger

Get ready to have a phenomenal meal with tons of superfoods. This recipe includes ginger, coconut, citrus, and salmon. There is also olive oil, which you can swap out for coconut oil. 

Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to start making substitutions to add more superfoods and to customize it to your taste. It’s truly a super meal!

Tomato avocado salad

The best thing about having a couple really healthy salad recipes in your repertoire is that they can easily be customized. Turn them from a side dish into a main course by adding salmon, chicken, or another protein. Swap out some veggies, try a new dressing. It all starts with a great salad base like this one.

Blueberry spirulina chia parfait

Dessert doesn’t have to be forbidden or unhealthy. This combination of chia, blueberries, and just a little blue spirulina is incredibly delicious and a superfood masterpiece!
