Anti-Aging Sweet and Spicy Radish Salad

Anti-Aging Sweet and Spicy Radish Salad

Want to learn how to protect your skin from premature aging? Would you like to avoid using expensive skin creams, Botox injections, fillers, and plastic surgery to look younger? If you answered yes to either question, you need to start eating healing foods like my delicious anti-aging sweet and spicy radish salad on a daily basis! This fantastic salad combines a variety of whole foods that will make your skin glow! I don’t know about you, but I love eating delectable foods with major health benefits! This tasty salad has crunchy, ruby red radishes, pungent white onions, tangy lemon juice and raw apple cider vinegar, floral honey and herbaceous basil. These flavors combine to create an irresistible salad that you will want to eat again and again!

 

The foods and drinks you eat every day can either help protect and maintain healthy skin or damage it. Nutrient-dense foods promote radiant, healthy skin by providing essential nutrients that your body needs every day to protect your skin from accelerated aging. The nutrients in these amazing foods help moisturize your skin from the inside out, reduce chronic inflammation, clean out toxins, rebuild and repair collagen, and protect your skin from free radical damage which can all lead to wrinkles and premature aging.

 

The top vitamins for anti-aging protection are vitamin A, C, E, and B vitamins. The top minerals for anti-aging are sulfur, silicon, iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, potassium, and calcium.  The top phytochemicals for anti-aging protection are chlorophyll, squalene, quercetin, and zeaxanthin.

 

Radishes

These tiny, crunchy root vegetables are high in anti-aging vitamins and minerals including vitamin C which helps repair and rejuvenate collagen keeping your skin supple and smooth. Silicon is a key mineral which reduces wrinkles, strengthens your connective tissues, and keep your skin smooth and glowing. Sulfur helps purify the blood from toxins and free radicals. Radishes also dissolve mucus in the digestive tract which helps your body absorb nutrients much more efficiently.

 

Lemons

Lemons and their juice are rich in vitamin C which protects collagen. Vitamin C also protects your cells from the oxidative damage that free radicals create. Lemons help flush toxins and bacteria from the body. A clean body + clean blood = glowing, smooth skin!

 

Olives and Olive Oil

Olives and olive oil are an excellent addition to your anti-aging diet. Olives are high in vitamin E which repairs connective tissue. Olives are mineral-rich and contain calcium, magnesium, amino acids, and monounsaturated fatty acids. Olives contain squalene an antioxidant and oxygen carrier that keeps your skin smooth and protects it from inflammation. I like to mix equal parts of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil with extra virgin coconut oil and use it to moisturize my face, hair, and body!

 

Onions

Onions are a member of the allium family of vegetables that also includes garlic, leeks, scallions, and shallots. Onions are abundant in sulfur an important mineral for removing toxins from the body and rebuilding connective tissue. Onions are a great source of quercetin which is a potent phytochemical and antioxidant that fights free radicals and regenerates vitamin E. Onions also have iron, vitamin A and C, iron, calcium, and potassium which make them a top anti-aging food.

 

Did you know that chronic inflammation which causes premature aging can be triggered by both unhealthy and healthy foods that you have sensitivities or intolerances to?

We are offering a special deal on the Platinum Comprehensive test right now so check it out.

 

I hope my salad and information on anti-aging whole foods will convince you to start adding these amazing foods into your daily diet!

  5. Nice recipe, Shelley. I’ll have to give it a try.

    It’s nice to read of all the alternatives to creams and botox. The skin is the largest organ in our body. It requires all the nutrients you mention, and of course, being able to get these foods in a way that also tastes great is going to help you keep eating healthy.

  6. Hi Shelley,

    I seen the word “Anti-Aging” and came running to this blog post! No wonder why I’m craving raw spring onions and radishes! AHA…Now that I know the benefits, I’ll continue eating them. Oh and yes…lemons too. I always put a slice of lemon in my water during the day.

    Believe me when I tell you I’ve tried all those creams and they do not work at all. As for botox: almost every woman I know is doing it. But why have poison injected in the skin is beyond me. I’m going all natural all the way! There is that saying “You are what you eat” and right now, I’m all about anti-aging!

    Glad to hear that Radishes reduces wrinkles anyways great post with tons of golden information. I have used some product and was stuck in a scam for wrinkles reduction and I will definitely try Radishes also. I really love if you post some more articles on skin care.

  10. Thanks for sharing this sweet and spicy radish salad, Shelley! Your recipe seems quick and easy to prepare. I’ll be sure to make these for myself when i’m hungry at work.

  11. This recipe is making me a bit of a radish convert, thanks for posting! 🙂

  12. Have you heard how Radish can prevent the worsening of a diabetes patient’s condition?

  13. Along with the old adage ‘you are what you eat’ one could add that we are also what we hear! Much research has been done on the subject of the influence of sound vibration on the health of living beings.
