Happy Skincare Saturday!

The Purely Primal Skincare Guide isn’t just about what you put on your skin. It’s about healing your skin from the inside out. Changing the health of your skin and your body from the inside out means being confident cooking good food. Real food doesn’t have to be complicated. 

This recipe may seem simple, but it’s more than just yummy and easy. It’s also full of mineral-rich sea salt, sage (an antioxidant herb that may help boost circulation), and complete protein – which is critical for building healthy skin cells. The vitamin A, vitamin D, and choline from egg yolks also provides the building blocks for healthy skin and hormonal balance. All this packed into simple, delicious real food.
