At The Assemblage in New York City last night for the Well+Good TALKS panel, the crowded room was buzzing with one topic in mind: inner beauty. Well+Good co-founder Melisse Gelula held a conversation with beauty mastermind and wellness pro Bobbi Brown and Well+Good Council member and fellow wellness expert Lily Kunin on the topic, and, while everything from beauty supplements to skin care were discussed, the top smoothie add-ins were hotly debated.
Lucky for us, Kunin dropped some pretty game-changing knowledge that will totally alter what we put in our blenders. Cauliflower (yes the same stuff that upped the game for pizza crusts and oatmeal) is a smoothie superstar, as well. “It tastes delicious and makes your smoothie creamy,” she says. And what’s more, if you’re looking for a way to rotate out your banana base, this is a pretty good stand-in. “I’ll do a smoothie and sub cauliflower for bananas,” she says for those seeking a low-sugar alternative.
What’s more, it could be a potent way to deal with not-so-happy skin. Brown and Kunin agree that cruciferous vegetables also double as a beauty food. ‘They’ve been really important for me personally,” says Kunin. “Cruciferous vegetables kind of help sweep excess estrogen out of your system. And excess estrogen can cause hormonal acne.”
Move over, bananas.
