That’s Quite a Raspberry!

I used to have a hell of a time with acne. I looked monstrous, no medicine could help. Luckily, there are foods that promote healthy, glowing skin (and some that promote the opposite). Cutting out dairy and refined foods helped a LOT. After finding out what exactly is good for your skin, I incorporated more of those in my diet. Things such as beets, watercress, radishes, berries, and flax truly make you beautiful from inside out.

And yes, my post title is a quote from Anchorman. Pictured above is my:

Ron Burgundy Smoothie

1/2 cup of raspberries, rinsed

1 cup of vanilla non dairy milk (I used almond)

1 teaspoon of irish moss powder

1 teaspoon of beet root powder

1 teaspoon of maca root powder

1/2 tablespoon of flaxmeal

1 tablespoon of unsweetened coconut flakes

2 teaspoons of agave

Raspberries contain antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties (cya acne). The herbs also promote healthy skin, and coconut and flax are also known to do so.
