Anti-Aging Recipes That Make You Glow from the Inside Out
Swap Serums for Smoothies
It's no secret that what you eat directly affects how you look (and feel!), but there's so much more to it than just your weight. Eating more whole foods and less processed meals will not just keep the extra weight off, but with the right blend of nutrients, your diet can actually slow down the hands of time. So start making these recipes courtesy of the new cookbook Good to Glow, Feel Good Food
by Tali Shine and Steph Adams ($35, teneues.com), and you're sure to see some serious anti-aging benefits.
Tofu, Hummus, and Beet Stack
Super Green Smoothie
The bite of spinach and kale are balanced out by sweet mango, banana, and almond milk. If you're allergic, leave bee pollen out of the mix, but if not you won't want to miss out on the antioxidant benefits (a.k.a. free-radical fighters) packed into this interesting superfood.
Raspberries and blueberries are loaded with antioxidants, plus they offer phytochemicals that ward off disease and may also provide anti-inflammatory agents, so you'll be able to tackle redness and irritation while enjoying an IG-worthy popsicle.

Oats with Quinoa and Blueberries
Fuel up for your morning run with a bowl of these hearty oats. (P.S. These time-saving oatmeal hacks will completely change your morning.) Almond milk provides as much as 45 percent of your daily-recommended amount of calcium, which translates to stronger bones. You'll be doing burpees well into your 50s.
Sexy Bun-Less Burger
Vegan Tofu Stir Fry
Kale still reigns supreme among the leafy greens; you get a nice dose of vitamins C and A, the first of which is said to promote the production of collagen, which gives skin that subtle, firm, and full appearance. Plus, the carotenoids in carrots may add a warm color to your skin—and that's always better than color from the sun.
Vegan Raw Choc Coco Bites
It doesn't get much simpler than this sweet treat that features coconut, chocolate, and. . .not much else. Coconut is all over this recipe—shredded coconut, coconut milk, coconut cream, coconut oil—all of which contains high doses of healthy fats that are crucial for maintaining strong nails, shiny hair, and glowing skin.
