Could the fountain of youth be found in the food we eat? Nutritionist JJ Smith sure thinks so!
After experiencing a health scare a few years ago, JJ discovered that certain foods -- superfoods! -- made her feel younger and more energetic than ever.
And when she visited our show, she showed Rach some of her favorites:
Superfood No. 1: Bok Choy
We can’t talk about superfoods without talking about greens -- especially since they’re the main ingredient in JJ’s go-to smoothies!
“Greens are very high in vitamin A,” JJ says. “Which means they help the body produce new cells. That’s what keeps our skin from being really dull and dehydrated.”
And though a lot of people turn to spinach and kale for their intake of greens, JJ prefers bok choy because it has a mild, peppery flavor. Use it on a green smoothie or a salad, she suggests!
Watch the video above to see how JJ makes her favorite bok choy salad!
Superfood No. 2: Apple Cider Vinegar
It’s all the rage these days -- and according to JJ, it sure does have its benefits.
“[It’s] a fermented food, which means it helps produce more good bacteria in the gut,” JJ says. “And I always say, your skin is just a reflection of what’s going on in the inside.”
With that said, drinking it alone isn’t always the most pleasant -- so JJ suggests mixing it with lemon juice, water, and some sugar-free sweetener.
Bonus: lemon is high in vitamin C, which helps your body produce more collagen.
Superfood No. 3: Nuts and Seeds
Nuts and seeds have vitamin E -- and since everyone is obsessed with pumpkin during this time of year, try JJ’s pumpkin spice seeds to get your fill.
They’re delicious, easy to prepare and easy to grab on the go!
Superfood No. 4: Bone Broth
Perhaps creams aren’t our only hope when it comes to trying to fight wrinkles?
“If you think about wrinkles, they happen because the collagen begins to break down in our skin,” JJ points out. “Some research says [bone broth] will actually help you produce collagen from the inside out.”
JJ actually drinks her broth straight out of a teacup -- and she says it also curbs her appetite and prevents her from overeating!
