Creamy avocado soup. A.K.A – The Skin Enhancer.
I love this green machine because of the amazing benefits it has for your skin. If you want healthy skin, eating cucumbers and avocados are key. The silica in cucumbers and the type of fat and amino acids found in avocados provide the building blocks necessary for cell regeneration and repair.
This small bowl contains the perfect combination of healthy fat, detoxifying vegetables, vitamins and minerals that will promote clear, glowing skin from the inside out.
Dr Jockers Comments:
I agree with Megan, cucumbers and avocados are perfect anti-aging superfoods! Avocados are extremely rich in potassium and magnesium as well as the carotenoid anti-oxidants lutein and zeaxanthin.
Cucumber is rich in the beauty mineral silica. The lemon provides more potassium, vitamin C and vitamin P (also called citrus bioflavonoids). This is a healthy skin and anti-aging recipe for sure! Enjoy!
