When we heard Well + Good released their first-ever cookbook, and that there was an entire category devoted to recipes for better skin, we couldn't wait to get our hands on a copy. At Alpyn, we believe that what you feed your skin has as much importance as what you put on your skin so when possible, we try to incorporate foods rich in Vitamins C and E, antioxidants, and healthy doses of good-fats.
Well + Good curated over 100 go-to recipes 100 wellness experts and healthy foodies *really* cook at home on a busy weekday. None require a ton of ingredients or long prep times, and they’re all verified delish.
We put their Recipes for Better Skin to the test: from Melisse Gelula's Spicy Water Melon Salad to Kayla Itsines' Raspberry-Peach Smoothie Bowl...but in the end, our favorite had to be Summer Rayne Oaks' Broiled Ginger-Cinnamon Grapefruit. The recipe is a snack, breakfast, and dessert all in one. Here we're sharing the recipe and adding in some opportunity to wildcraft a few of the finishing ingredients for extra plant power.
Broiled Ginger-Cinnamon Grapefruit
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 large grapefruit, halved crosswise
2 tsp chopped pistachios
4 Tbs vegan coconut yogurt
1 tsp fresh mint (we wildcraft ours in Jackson Hole)
1. Preheat broiler with a rack 4" from the heat source.
2. Using your fingers or a pastry brush, spread 1/4 tsp of ginger and cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt on the cut side of each grapefruit half. Place the halves cut-side up on a baking sheet or baking dish.
3. Broil the grapefruit for about 3 minutes, or until edges begin to brown.
4. Remove from the oven, top evenly with pistachios, mint leaves, and coconut yogurt. Serve warm.
