I recently gave a presentation at the Winchester Farmers Market. The focus was on the veggie’s in season now, like radishes and watercress, that offer anti-aging properties. There are three cardinal goals for slowing the aging process:
- Boost blood flow
- Reduce oxidation (increase anti-oxidants)
- Minimize inflammation
Prepare this unique salad with a Mango Curry dressing.
This salad features curry powder, a blend of spices that includes the principle component turmeric, which is an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifier.
Avocado is high in monounsaturated fat. A good creamy fat good for the skin as well as weight loss, because of it’s beneficial effects on how your body uses blood sugar.
Watercress acts as an internal skin antiseptic and skin cleanser, as well as helping to clean the blood and increase the circulation and delivery of minerals to all the cells of the body.
