Barbecue right for better skin
One of the joys of summertime is a barbecue. Nothing tastes better than food cooked outdoors over an open fire. But, we now know that when you cook the muscle meats from beef, pork, fowl and fish, carcinogenic chemicals called heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are formed. In addition Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) are also created. The more AGEs we have, the more oxidative stress in our bodies, accelerating aging and disease risk in all organ systems, including skin. In fact, AGEs play a key role in both healthy aging and can be a wrinkle cure and deeply lined, sagging skin; to learn more see AGE-less Face, AGE-less Mind. In this book, you will find important strategies for halting AGE formation, as well as strategies to reverse them. Along with recipes, I have included advice on supplements and topicals that have powerful anti-AGE properties. Our old friend alpha lipoic acid is a superb anti-glycating agent and fights their damaging effects both internally and externally.
The perfect Labor Day BBQ recipe!
With Labor Day right around the corner, the time is perfect for me to share one of my favorite recipes for the barbecue, salmon kabobs marinated with fresh lime juice and rosemary. Our savory salmon kabobs will deliver a healthy dose of the omega-3s as well as superior taste and flavor. This recipe also works wonders with shrimp, scallops, boneless chicken breast and firm tofu. Heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad makes the perfect accompaniment.
