3 Skin Clearing Snacks

Start spring off right and eat your way to radiance with my top three simple skin clearing snack recipes below. Beauty truly starts from the inside out.


My Get Beautiful Baked Spiced Grapefruit:

  1. Sprinkle ½ of a medium grapefruit with nutmeg, cinnamon and 1/2 tablespoon of stevia (an all natural sweetener which does not spike your blood sugar levels).
  2. Bake for five minutes until the top is a golden brown at 375 degrees.

If you are on the run, you can enjoy divine delight without baking it. Grapefruit is a great source of vitamin C and vitamin A, two ingredients that have been proven to contribute to clear skin, a more even complexion, and a reduction in those pesky dark circles under your eyes. Moreover, grapefruit contains an enzyme that aids in burning fat. It is the perfect afternoon pick-me up when you are losing focus, and hanger (hunger-anger) starts to kick in.

My Chunky Pineapple Cream Cup

  1. Combine ½ cup of plain non-fat Greek Yogurt, ½ cup of pineapple, ½ cup of blueberries and 1 tablespoon of stevia in a bowl or cup.

Pineapples contain specific enzymes that improve skin hydration, decrease fine lines and give you an overall smoother complexion. These enzymes also help fight off damaging free radicals that contribute to aging. Blueberries are packed with Vitamin-C and Vitamin-E; two of my favorite skin super nutrients. The protein in Greek yogurt will make this a smart snack because it will keep you more full for a longer amount of time (not to mention, a richer creamier taste). The healthy carbohydrates from the fruit will keep you energized until your next meal. Refreshing and delicious. For another skin clearing healthy parfait option check out my pumpkin parfait video .

My Sweet Cinnamon Apple Almond Butter Sandwich

  1. Spread ½ tablespoon of almond butter over two thick apple slices
  2. Add cinnamon and nutmeg to the almond butter before spreading.

Apples are one of my favorite healthy carbohydrates, packed with fiber, keeping you more full and satisfied for a longer amount of time. Not to mention the combination of different vitamins in apples is great for banishing blemishes. Pairing an apple with almond butter will help stabilize your blood sugar (which will reduce your cravings for junk food). Cinnamon and nutmeg are two of my favorite skin clearing spices because they help balance hormones, reduce stress and have a calming effect on the body.
