Not only is this a super tasty and healthy breakfast, it is also very easy to make. All you need to do is mash some avocado, add some lime juice, spread it on a toasted slice of bread and sprinkle some berries and chia seeds on top. Sounds good, right? Not only does this breakfast help your skin glow, it also boosts your overall health.
But what exactly is it in this particular breakfast that makes it so good for your skin? We are happy to explain that to you…
There are three reasons why avocado toast with these healthy toppings is good for your skin:
The avocado, which contains many healthy fats, reduces the risk of skin aging from exposure to ultraviolet radiation. This is due to the monounsaturated fats found in avocado, nuts and vegetable oils. In addition, chia seeds contain a lot of antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that also contribute to the elasticity of your skin. These seeds also contain our skin's favorite minerals, selenium and zinc, which also help keep your skin elastic.
Lime juice is the secret ingredient that keeps your body's collagen levels up, which in turn keeps your skin elastic. Lime juice is high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that our skin needs to fight free radicals that cause damage and aging. You also need vitamin C to heal wounds and maintain the collagen structure. This naturally decreases as you get older.
Do you use multigrain bread for your avocado toast? Then you might be able to avoid getting pimples. Multigrain products cause fewer spikes in your blood sugar level and therefore less insulin. Insulin causes irritation and can therefore make you more prone to acne. Avoiding, for example, white bread can prevent you from getting pimples. So opt for a multigrain variant for your breakfast!
