Don’t you just love a Fall picnic? Whip up this super easy #beautyfood bite whenever the mood strikes you for packable, skin-loving feast! Nourishing pumpkin is a great source of vitamin C, which protects from free radical damage, making it a potent wrinkle fighter. It also provides significant B vitamins, vitamin E, and beta carotene, and a high enzyme content which helps to diminish dry skin.
White, or cannellini, beans stabilize blood sugar, and help you to stay fit by absorbing carbohydrates at a slower rate, allowing the body to use them efficiently. Additionally, they contain antioxidants, protein, fiber, potassium, and calcium, making them #beautyfood stars!
Enjoy this flavorful, tasty treat with fresh veggies or (our favorite!) crisp, sweet apples for a light yet highly satisfying snack anytime.
