Looking to reverse the signs of aging? Then look no further than your kitchen.

Wrinkles are actually a sign of inflammation, and one of the primary causes of inflammation in the body is caused by the foods that we eat. So if you want to prevent or even reverse wrinkles, then look to what you’re eating (and not eating).

5 Foods to Eat (and Not Eat) to Slow Down the Aging Process:

1. Avoid Inflammatory Foods

Cut out inflammatory foods such as fast foods as well as sugar, dairy, and gluten. They all increase inflammation which speeds up the signs of aging. So avoiding processed foods whenever possible will help slow down the harmful effects of these foods. For some help in cutting back on sugar, check out Before You Eat that Sweet.

2. Stay Hydrated

Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water in order to keep your skin looking smooth and healthy. The more hydrated your skin is, the healthier and younger you’ll look. Coffee, soda, and alcohol are all dehydrating, so be sure to balance out these drinks with additional glasses of water.

Drinking water is one of our top micro-habits for health & wellness. It’s great for your skin, but also for your brain, your metabolism, your energy levels, and more. Check out this simple healthy hack: Drinking water first thing in the morning.

3. Incorporate Omega-3 Fatty Acids into your Diet

Fatty acids, such as flaxseeds, chia seeds, and avocado are all great choices when it comes to keeping your skin hydrated. Omega-rich foods are also great for managing your stress and resiliency.

4. Consume Protein

One of the reasons we get wrinkles is due to losing collagen and elastin in our skin. One of the easiest ways to avoid losing elasticity is to consume proteins that contain amino acids. These powerful protein sources will help to repair skin damage and prevent premature aging. You can find amino acids in foods like fish, grains, seeds and nuts. Bone broths are also a great source of collagen.

THE #1 daily habit is to Eat your greens and veggies.

5. Eat Your Greens

Last but definitely not least is eating your greens. Getting your veggies in every day, at every meal, is probably THE most important health habit you can create for yourself. I break down how you can start adding more greens to your meals over here: The Most Important Daily Habit for Your Health.

In general, to look and feel your best, opt for a diet high in antioxidants and nutrients and low in sugar and processed foods. Check out our anti-inflammatory Whole Food Plant-Based recipes over on the blog.
