Collagen Beauty Bowl


“You are what you eat”

I am always looking for beautiful gut enhancing recipes to incorporate into my lifestyle. This Collagen Beauty Bowl is a perfect example of something that will not only taste divine but is a deliciously healthy recipe to have under your wing.

The relationship between your mind, skin and gut is inextricably linked by what we eat and drink on a daily basis. Incorporating collagen boosting foods (like I have below) is a great way to combat ageing. For more on collagen check out my top tips here.

My Collagen Beauty Bowl

Why this beauty bowl is beautiful inside and out:

Magnesium

Why? Magnesium helps to cleanse and detox our bodies and skin (so if you are facing that extra special breakout – opt for foods rich in magnesium!) Increasing your magnesium intake, have more chances in treating allergic reactions or skin conditions such as eczema.

Eat more: Bananas, leafy greens, cacao, avocados, pumpkin seeds.

PreBiotics

Why? An increase in prebiotics makes for a happy gut, that help fuel the growth of good gut bacteria.

Eat more: Berries, bananas, seeds, broccoli.

ProBiotics

Why? If you and your family aren’t already, get yourself savvy with what probiotics are. Probiotics are an essential element that keeps your gut microbiota in check, alleviating oxidative stress on your body and in turn your skin. When you have a healthy gut environment, your body flourishes, making for that healthy and happy skin to shine.

Eat more: Probiotic supplements (I take a tablet every morning, along with a sprinkle of Natures Way probiotic powder in my shakes), Fermented food like kefir, yoghurt, kombucha, kimchi.

Antioxidants

Why? A very important part of slowing down the ageing process, along with helping combat harmful free radicals that cause inflammation and the breakdown of collagen

Eat more: Look for bright colourful vegetables and fruit, green tea, seeds (chia, flaxseeds).

Ellagic Acid

Why? Helps reduce an enzyme made by free radicals that creates a breakdown of collagen.

Eat more: : Blackberries, raspberries, pecans, cranberries, pomegranate, strawberries.

Tip: You can pop this beauty bowl into a take away drinking jar and have for a quick breakfast.

This recipe will be naturally high in sugar, so this isn’t an everyday recipe, more of a once a week kind of thing!

To get your kids or your inner child gleaming when eating, use cookie cutters to make shapes to make your meal that little bit more special.
