Feel Beautiful Eating Goji Berries
Do you know what fruit has a full 18 different kinds of amino acids? Goji Berries! Yes, that’s right! Keep your eye out for these small little red berries at your local health food store because they pack a powerful punch. Goji berries are full of antioxidants, B vitamins, and polysaccharides too.
When I am looking for an extra boost I will sprinkle a tablespoon of goji berries in my smoothie and call it a day!
It’s hard to feel beautiful when you are stressed out or feeling anxious. It’s even harder to feel your most beautiful self when you are super fatigued and feeling lethargic. Luckily goji berries can help us fight these uncomfortable symptoms.
Goji berries can help us bring forward our most beautiful self. Why is this the case you might wonder? Well, Goji berries contain adaptogens. And adaptogens increase our resistance to things like anxiety and exhaustion. Thank you goji berries!
Feel Beautiful Eating Persimmons
During the fall and winter time, one of my all time favorite fruit is persimmons. On the west coast, we can only find them in the season for such a short period. So by the time this season rolls around I am always on the lookout for a vibrant persimmon or two!
Now if you are wondering, ‘what in the world is a persimmon’ it’s time you venture out and try one! Persimmons are a golden orange fruit, oval in shape and they are absolutely delicious. When you let them get nice and soft they are sweet and so flavorful and are loaded with beautifying nutrients.
It’s important to note beauties that there are two types of persimmons, and one of those can be more on the bitter side if you don’t let it ripen enough.
The Fuyu persimmon looks like a flat oval and it is the sweeter of the two. Fuyu persimmons can be enjoyed when they are a little firm or when they are nice and soft.
On the other hand, Hachiya persimmons look more closely to an apple in shape, and you are going to want to avoid eating these until they are soft. These persimmons only get sweet when they are very ripe.
Persimmons are such an amazing beauty fruit! Just one single persimmon contains 80% of your daily requirements of vitamin C. Can you believe that?! They are also loaded with vitamins A, B, and E.
By now you’ve heard enough about these beauty fruits and hopefully ready to make my delicious Gogji Berry Persimmon Smoothie! I hope you love it as much as I do! Be sure to take a picture of your smoothie and tag me in your Instagram post so I can see it :)
