Cooking with the Moms
As we get older, we've been thinking more about the connection between what we eat and how we feel inside...and out. The link is quite strong. Take berries for example. They are rich in antioxidants, which protect against the daily wear and tear of our cells and cell membranes and guard against premature signs of aging. And then there are foods like green leafy vegetables that contain vitamins A and C (both powerful antioxidants), vitamin K, a strong bone builder, and a nutrient called biotin, good for the health of hair and skin. On this week's show, we outline both everyday and surprising foods that boost beauty and keep us young...and we serve up two recipes filled with life-enhancing ingredients: Apple, Rhubarb & Berry Crisp and a Rustic Red, White and Green Pizza.
