Gorgeous Eating

Family,

In our Eat Yourself Gorgeous series I will be providing you with weekly skin loving recipes or "Beauty Foods" that will allow you to create healthy skin from the inside out. I will start off slow and work up to more difficult recipes. Let's get Gorgeous!

Fruited Cottage Cheese

8 oz low-fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup fresh pineapple
1 tbs wheat germ
1 10 oz melon (peeled)
1 tbs granola
1 tbs yeast flakes

Place the cottage cheese in a bowl. Add the pineapple and beat well for a few minutes with a mixer. Add the yeast flakes, wheat germ and granola, stir well until mixture is combined. Chop the melon in small pieces then add to top of mixture. Chill in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. Spoon into bowls and enjoy this light breakfast or afternoon snack.

*This is a power snack for the skin. Everything you eat affects your appearance. Wheat germ contains vitamins E, B1, B2, and folic acid as well as magnesium, iron, and zinc. Wheat germ is also helpful in preventing the body's aging process. Yogurt contains active bacteria which helps the digestive system. Fresh pineapple helps break down protein. It is diuretic, sudorific and cleanses the skin.
Granola is a good source of fiber and vitamins. Yeast flakes is a source of protein and vitamins, also low in fat and sodium
