"Choose from these food categories," Grace O says, "to get access to the complex carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fat as well as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can support your beauty. With each bite, you rewrite the narrative of aging, embracing a future where beauty and wellness dance in harmonious tandem.

Ginger Hultin, FoodTrients nutritionist and dietician, elaborates further on how a wholesome diet can aid long-term beauty in a surprisingly multitude of ways. "Not only can eating well boost hair and skin quality and foster growth and resilience. It can also energize the body, setting the stage for living an active lifestyle and maintaining optimal muscle mass. The end result fuels vitality, helping you to greet each day anew with positivity and potential."

It's time to savor all the flavors of nourishment we've been talking about, paving the way for a more vibrant, age-defying you. Sample Grace O's mouth-watering, healthy anti-aging food with the Radish Salad recipe below that's perfect for summer.

Recipe

Daikon Radish Salad

This recipe is from the first cookbook by Grace O, The Age Gracefully Cookbook: Easy and Exotic Longevity Secrets from Around the World (2016) is available on Amazon. Her second cookbook (pictured above) The Age Gracefully Cookbook: The Power of Foodtrients to Promote Health and Well-Being for a Joyful and Sustainable Life, is available in paperback and for Kindle. Grace O is also the author of Anti-Aging Dishes From Around the World, available in hard cover and for Kindle.

The recipe here is an excellent example of how the ‘superfoods’ that are ingredients for aging well, can be incorporated into delicious, irresistible dishes that are easy to prepare. Radishes belong to the same family as kale and cabbage and offer some of the same disease-preventing benefits. The eggs in this bright, tangy salad provide protein and the carrots vitamin A and the tomatoes vitamins A and C. 

Ingredients

2 daikon radishes or 1 bunch red radishes, stems removed 
1 cup seasoned rice vinegar 
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil 
1 tsp. minced garlic 
1 tsp. sea salt 1/4 tsp. white pepper 
2 chopped hard-boiled eggs 
6-8 sliced grape tomatoes
2 medium carrots, scrubbed and sliced into coins 

Directions 

1. Slice the radishes very thinly using a food processor or mandolin slicer. 
2. To make the dressing, mix together the rice vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Let stand and allow the flavors to blend for up to 1 hour. 
3. Toss the radishes with dressing. 
4. To assemble, arrange the sliced radishes on salad plates. Top with the chopped eggs, carrots and tomato slices, evenly divided.
