Eat Frozen Grapes

Frozen grapes are my latest beauty food obsession. Not only do they sate a sweet craving because they taste like Freezies, but grapes in general are unusually loaded with nutrients that keep you looking young.

According to the World’s Healthiest Foods database, “The wealth of antioxidant nutrients in grapes is somewhat startling! In addition to providing us with conventional antioxidant nutrients like vitamin C and manganese, grapes are filled with antioxidant phytonutrients that range from common carotenoids like beta-carotene to unusual stilbenes like resveratrol, and the total number of different antioxidant nutrients in grapes runs well into the hundreds.”

You’ve probably heard of resveratrol, right? It is the plant compound found in red wine that has life-extending effects. Resveratrol helps to turn on a family of genes in the body called sirtuins, which control the function and longevity of cells. There’s more! Grape seed extract is also packed with two of the most powerful anti-aging antioxidants: Vitamin C (helps fade age spots and aids collagen production) and vitamin E (moisturizes skin and reduces pigmentation like stretch marks).

The next time you’re hankering for nature’s candy, treat your skin to some grapes! Freeze them overnight – I promise, you’ll love that crunchy sweet bite. And at just 100 calories per 1 cup, frozen grapes keep you skinny too.
