    More goodness for your skin and overall health. I make a version of this almost every night as a fruit salad to go with our dinner. I'm going to have to get some walnuts to add to the mix---also include some of the flaxseed that I have in the frig and always forget. I think they got pushed by SR to the back of the frig, out of sight.


    Brightly colored berries contain antioxidants, which help neutralize free radicals that can damage the DNA of healthy skin cells. Blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries have some of the highest antioxidant levels of any food and new research has found a link between the antioxidants in these berries and decreased incidence of UV damage.
    This delicious parfait offers an easy way to load up on antioxidants, as well as the omega-3s in flaxseed and walnuts, another important skin nutrient.

    Yogurt and Berries

    Servings: 1

    1 Tbsp flaxseed, ground
    2 Tbsp walnuts, chopped
    1. Place yogurt in a serving dish

    Loooove the Greek yogurt. It's really alarming how much sugar the other kinds have.
