Foods to fight Aging

 1. Chickpeas
Chickpeas are rich in B vitamins and magnesium, which are both nutrients required for the production of energy molecules. Adding curry to the chickpeas not only gives a warming spicy flavor to the snack, but also an extra boost of antioxidants to protect the cells from free-radical damage. Damaged cells equal fatigue and malaise.

Drain a can of chickpeas and rinse in water. Dry with paper towels. Toss the chickpeas in 1 teaspoon of curry powder. Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a roasting pan. Add chickpeas to the roasting pan and cook for 30 minutes at 375 F. Makes two servings. 

Guava fruit is packed with vitamin C, which boosts collagen production to smooth skin. Two cups of guava per week is the perfect dose of this anti-aging powerhouse.
