Skin Food: Avocado & Grapefruit Salad - great for you and your skin!

The opening of your local farmers market means it is the season to add healthy foods into your diet, including plenty of salads. This grapefruit and avocado salad is incredibly good for you nutritionally, but will also help you have health skin that glows from within. Grapefruits and avocados are both  known for their antioxidant properties that help nourish, hydrate and condition. The Vitamin C in grapefruit can also help your body fight the skin damage caused by sun and pollution!

We love this salad because it’s easy to make and very versatile – serve it for breakfast with whole-grain toast or alongside your favorite entree fresh off the grill. It would  make a great topper for fish or steak! This salad is delicate, but it packs a flavor punch that we know your taste buds will appreciate! 

Glow on, Natural Warrior!
