Vegan Cinnamon Chili Sweet Potato Bowl – Recipe Review

Veggie Bowls! These bowls are all over Instagram and food blogs and we have fallen in love with them too. They are so easy to prepare and so yummy!

BrusselsVegan created a veggie bowl that looked too good not to try to recreate! Not only was it delicious but did you know it was packed with added skin protection!? 

Added Bonus…Sun Protection!

As we head into the hotter and sunnier months, we need to be even more aware of protecting our skin from the sun. Although, we are thankful that companies, like Eminence Organics and Coola Suncare are creating effective natural sunscreens to protect our skin. We now know that sunscreen is not the only way that you can prevent sun related aging. Many foods have sun protective nutrients that turn on the UV defense and these effects last several days after eating!

Here’s how you can protect your skin from the inside out! There are two nutrients proven to increase your skin’s sun protection at the cellular level they are carotenoids and lycopene. Spinach, kale, sweet potatoes, red and orange bell peppers, tomatoes, watermelon and carrots are all high in these nutrients. Yum! Already have some sun damage? That’s okay, nutrients such as flavonals and polyphenols found in dark berries, avocados, carrots, cacao, and cinnamon prevents free radical damage caused by excessive sun exposure. 

So as summer approaches, make sure you enjoy more of these delicious food options but also don’t forget to still slather on natural sun protection like Coola & Eminence! And you’ll be covered inside & out!
