Glow For It: Glow Bites!

I've had such great feedback on this Glow Bites that I've updated the recipe to include vegan and nut free versions too! These gluten and dairy free Glow Bites are not only delicious, but they are chock full of superfoods, packing a nutritious punch in every one.

All of the ingredients here are chosen for their beauty boosting benefits - no fillers or sweeteners here!

TigerNut Flour: the number one source of resistant starch, the prebiotic fiber that becomes food for your probiotic fiber. Great skin starts with the gut!

Cacaowith more antioxidants than any other food on earth, this superfood contains compounds that prevent wrinkles, protects skin from UV damage and increases the supply of nutrients, blood and oxygen to the skins surface. Talk about a beauty booster!

Collagen Powder: the protein present in all of the body's organs and tissues, natural collagen production begins to decrease as we age, resulting in a lack of firmness and elasticity in the skin. Supplementing with collagen powder can help restore these youthful qualities, giving you smooth and supple skin.

Avocado: you don't need to use avocado in a face mask for its beauty boosting benefits - it is rich in monounsaturated fatty acid (great for heart health), contains vitamins E and B, and can help detoxify the liver.

Glow Bites are one of the recipes from my upcoming 'Glow for It' online guide to glowing skin, shiny hair and endless energy which will be released in the next few months - for more information make sure you are signed up to my mailing list!
