Healthy Skin and Foods to Eat Like Strawberry Bruschetta

Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin.

This diet includes plenty of dark orange (carrots, sweet potatoes, winter squash) and dark green (broccoli, spinach, kale) vegetables.

Vitamin E helps promote great skin, which is why this diet includes nuts such as hazelnuts and almonds  which are high in vitamin E as snacks.

Fish contains oils that will help nourish your skin. This diet includes fish options at lunch and dinner to add luster and softness to your complexion.
Eating more vitamin C-rich foods, such as strawberries, may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness.  Collagen is fibrous protein that keeps skin firm and vitamin C is essential for collagen production. Anyway you eat strawberries it's a win for your skin!

Strawberry Bruschetta:

4 thick slices whole-wheat bread
6 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons lemon juice
3 cups sliced or diced hulled strawberries
4 tablespoons mascarpone

Toast bread in a toaster.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over high heat. Add sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice and cook, stirring, until the sugar melts and the mixture begins to bubble, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add strawberries and stir until juices begin to exude and the berries are heated through, 30 seconds to 1 minute more.
Spread 1 tablespoon mascarpone on each piece of toast. Top with the warm berries
