Apples for Healthy Skin

2014-02-03 08.00.17

Eating right influences the health of your skin as dramatically as what you put on it. One source of skin loving nutrients is an apple. The vitamin C in an apple helps your body produce the collagen needed to give the skin elasticity and a plump appearance.

Apples are fabulous fresh, but the apple is versatile and adds the right touch to many dishes. Here’s one idea for adding apples to breakfast.

When you have an abundance of apples, core and peel them, then cut them into bite-size pieces and dehydrate them. I use a Nesco dehydrator, which lets me dehydrate eight trays at a time.

Then add the apples to an instant oatmeal mix, like the oatmeal packets you can buy for the microwave. Here’s the recipe:

2 cups oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup powder milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup dehydrated apples.

Mix this all together and store in an airtight container.

To prepare measure:
2/3 cup instant oatmeal mix
3/4 cup water

Microwave for 2 minutes and enjoy your apples and one more way to healthy skin.

What variations of this oatmeal mix have you seen or tried?
