Gettin’ Healthy Skin with Green Smoothies + $125 Whole Foods gift card giveaway!

| September 18, 2013 | 207 Comments

We’re back with our monthly Eucerin post and this time we’re talking nutrition and healthy eats. I love my skin care products like siblings, but let’s face it, if it’s trying to get your skin in better health, nothing works like a good ole’ diet. My skin is in the best shape of my life and I think a lot of it has to do with my ditching dairy, wheat, sodas and fast food. I only drink water and I drink my weight in green smoothies.

Fresh Fruit smoothie

Yep, you gals know how much I loooooove my green smoothies. Eucerin provided me with a gift card to Whole Foods and I scooped up a whole ‘lot of fruits ‘n veggies. We usually purchase our weekly bundle of fruit’s ‘n stuff from local farmer’s markets (cheaper and I love supporting small businesses) but it was fun shopping at Whole Foods for a change. Despite my being a hippie and all, I don’t really shop there because I find it crazy expensive but we managed to get quite a bit for our family of 3. And as soon as we got home I whipped up an enormous green smoothie for Esposo, Elle and I.

Green smoothie

It’s Skin Care Awareness Month so I tossed in ingredients that I know are going to help keep our skin healthy and clear. The spinach will help combat wrinkles, the avocado will help heal blotchy skin and those sweet strawberries will help keep skin clear. And I tossed in a dollop of almond butter for added protein.

Almond butter

And because it adds the right kind of sweetness to any smoothie.

Wanna get your own bundle of healthy eats from Whole Foods? Eucerin will give one lucky winner a $125 to Whole Foods AND Eucerin goodies. Press your luck by entering the Rafflecopter below. Remember, it takes a minute or two to get goin’ so be patient.

Good luuuuuck!

    I would love to start making green smoothies. Yours included my favorite fruit and veggie, strawberries and spinach.

    I do have a smoothie question though, can you make your smoothies ahead of time and drink them later on or do they need to be consumed the day you make them?

    I love pineapple and kale.

  5. Gigi says:

    Hey B…I live in Charleston, SC and we are so fortunate to have so many farmers markets here with so many available fruits and veggies, however my favorite fruit is probably watermelon. It’s water dense and fills me up without adding on pounds.
