Toss a Skin-Saving Salad

|

May 22, 2010

A recent study from the University of Queensland in Australia found that people who ate the most vegetables, particularly leafy green vegetables, had a reduced risk of squamous cell carcinoma-a common type of skin cancer typically found on the face, ears, neck, and hands. The folate found in leafy vegetables also helps make new skin cells, which keeps your complexion looking fresh. For a skin cancer-preventing seasonal salad, pick up some spinach, mustard greens, or kale. Chop and toss with winter fruits like roasted pink grapefruit, blood oranges, sliced apples, or pomegranate seeds. Add beans or nuts for a plant-based protein boost. And top with avocado for healthy fats that help skin glow.
