Broccoli Beauty Bowl Recipe for Clear Skin
Green Glow: Broccoli Beauty Bowl Recipe for Clear Skin

Clear, radiant skin isn't just about the products you apply; it's also about what you put into your body. Embracing a diet rich in skin-loving nutrients can work wonders for achieving that coveted complexion glow. One superstar ingredient that deserves a spotlight in your skincare menu is Broccoli. Packed with vitamins, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, broccoli can help nourish your skin from the inside out. 

Let's explore a delicious recipe that incorporates this green powerhouse for a radiant complexion.

Broccoli Beauty Bowl


2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 avocado, sliced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Steam the broccoli florets until tender but still slightly crisp, about 5-7 minutes. Alternatively, you can blanch them in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, then immediately transfer to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice to create a simple dressing. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, steamed broccoli, avocado slices, cherry tomatoes, and sliced almonds.

Drizzle the lemon dressing over the bowl and toss gently to coat all ingredients evenly.

Divide the mixture into serving bowls and garnish with additional sliced almonds and a sprinkle of black pepper, if desired.

Serve immediately and enjoy the nourishing goodness of this Broccoli Beauty Bowl!

Why It Works:

Broccoli: This cruciferous vegetable is a nutritional powerhouse, loaded with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as folate and fiber. Its antioxidants help fight free radicals, reduce inflammation and promote collagen production for healthy, clear skin.

Avocado: Rich in healthy fats and vitamin E, avocado moisturizes the skin from within, while its antioxidants help protect against oxidative damage and premature aging.

Quinoa: A complete protein source, quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids, along with vitamins and minerals like magnesium and zinc, which support skin health and repair.

Almonds: These nuts are a great source of vitamin E, which nourishes and protects the skin from UV damage and helps maintain its elasticity.

Incorporate this Broccoli Beauty Bowl into your weekly meal rotation to feed your skin the nutrients it needs for a clear, radiant complexion that glows from within. With every bite, you'll be one step closer to achieving your skincare goals naturally and deliciously.
