Skin Beauty Salad Recipe

Our products can work some near-miracles but if you’re not looking after yourself on the inside, it will show on the outside eventually. Your best approach is two-pronged. Eat for skin health and use natural, results-driven products.
If you want to start eating to support your skin, remember that excess acidity in the body can cause a variety of skin problems and result in a dull complexion. Alkalising foods like almonds, avocado, apple cider vinegar and vegetables will help you on your way to flawless skin.
This Skin Beauty Salad from Sydney blogger Scandi Foodie is packed with skin essentials like folic acid, fiber, manganese, protein, iron, copper, zinc, magnesium and omega-3 fats. It’s a hearty salad that is filling, delicious and perfect for the winter months, not to mention super easy to make.

Skin Beauty Salad (serves 2)
Ingredients
230g cooked chickpeas (or use 1 tin)
2 big handfuls of baby spinach leaves
1/2 avocado, diced
1 small handful of almonds, soaked in water overnight
1 zucchini, sliced into 1/2 cm disks
olive oil, for brushing
2 tablespoons unhulled tahini (or use this recipe)
1/2 lemon, juiced
water
pinch of salt
1 small garlic clove
freshly ground black pepper
Directions: 
1. Lightly brush the zucchini slices with olive oil and grill on a pan for a couple of minutes on each side. Set aside.
2. Combine tahini, lemon juice and grated garlic in a small bowl. Add enough water to form a smooth, runny dressing. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
3. Place the chickpeas in a bowl and coat them with the tahini dressing.
4. Place the baby spinach leaves in serving bowls, top with tahini coated chickpeas, diced avocado and the zucchini slices. Sprinkle with soaked almonds (or seeds of choice).
