Favorite skin food ingredient and why: Brazil nuts are nutritional powerhouses, providing healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It’sparticularly high in selenium, a mineral with potent antioxidant properties. I grate them with a veggie peeler, on salads, veggies, risotto, pasta. I also make vanilla brazil nut milk, perfect pair for a healthy skin.
Go-to quick, healthy meal: I love to improvise with what I have in my fridge. My go to meal starts by filling a bowl with greens, such as baby spinach, romaine lettuce or kale. Then I add steamed broccoli, leaks, carrots or sweet potatoes, sprouts, pickled onions, fermented veggies, cooked brown rice, beans or lentils and not to forget a tasty dressing like lemon vinaigrette or a garlic tahini dressing.
Skincare mantra: Beauty comes from within. Let it glow.

A vegan, gluten-free and grain-free recipe that combines psyllium for a fiber rich breakfast, spices such as turmeric to boost the immune system, cinnamon to balance blood sugar, as well as healthy fats.
Ingredients: (for 2 bowls)
1 ½ cup water
1 cup coconut milk (or any other plant milk)
4 tbsp coconut flour (or almond meal)
2 tbsp psyllium husk
1 tbsp hemp hearts
2 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
A pinch of pink Himalayan salt
2 tbsp of coconut oil
2 tsp of sweetener of choice like maple syrup, date syrup, coconut blossom sugar
2 tsp of your favorite adaptogen powder or tincture.
Optional toppings: seasonal fruits, goji berries, coconut flakes, and cacao nibs.
There are two ways to prepare it. You can place all the ingredients (except coconut oil) in a bowl, mix with a spoon, cover it and let it sit for two hours or overnight.
Or you can also combine the ingredients (except coconut oil) in a pan, over low heat, and stir constantly. In a few minutes the porridge will thicken. Transfer to your favorite bowls and stir in sweetener of choice and coconut oil. Garnish with toppings of choice. Enjoy in mindfulness.
