Stuffed peppers recipe | Skin-boosting foods | BodyCo Skin

Taking care of your skin from the inside is just as important as the outside (by using skin care products!)

A fave meal in my household at the moment is 'Mexi-style stuffed peppers'. 

Skin benefits: 

Red peppers: loaded with vitamins C & A, which means they have great anti-oxidant properties. Red peppers are great for helping a more youthful complexion as well as improving skin by speeding up wound healing, preventing breakouts, supporting the skin's immune system and promote natural moisturisation. This means the skin is kept hydrated and has a radiant glow!

Quinoa: rich in vitamin B, which helps to brighten and enhance the skin. It helps to rejuvenate the skin, making it more vibrant. It also gives the skin elasticity, making it soft. 

Black beans: rich in antioxidants, helping to brighten skin and give a fresh complexion as well as aiding the production of red blood cells. 

Tomatoes: many skin-boosting benefits; helping soothe skin inflammation, stimulate collagen production (for plumper skin), removing dead skin cells, anti-ageing properties and helps to fight cellular damage. 

The ingredients list (for 2 people):

2x large red peppers (cut in half)

1 cup quinoa (cooked)

1 can black beans (rinse)

1 small red onion (diced)

1 small tin of tomatoes (diced)

Cheese & jalapenos are optional.

Method:

Cook quinoa (as packet suggests)

While that is cooking, heat a small amount of oil in a frypan, over a medium-high heat, and add onions. Cook until translucent then add beans. Add cooked quinoa and the tomatoes to the pan.

Halve the red peppers and remove the seeds. Stuff the peppers with the quinoa & bean mix.

Put in oven for about 20 minutes, or until the peppers have softened. 

Serve and enjoy!
