Nutritious Amaranth Seed Healing Body & Beautifying Skin

The Amaranth Seeds ability to beautify from within, in topical form, healing ailments, moisturizing skin with it's nutrient rich properties are magnificent. Used by the Aztecs as a vital staple of daily meals, the grain used in many forms is so beneficial we had to include it in our blog. For centuries amaranth (amaranthus) has provided essential nutrients to early settlers, in some groups making it their only source of protein.  The healthful and beautifying abilities appeal to many, especially those who have experienced the benefits, showing up on breakfast tables and in beauty regiments around the world. 
We love the seed sprinkled in breakfast bowls, in place of oatmeal, on salads, or cooked to perfection as a side dish. The seeds rich properties are also used as healthy oil for beauty regiments and in Ryor cosmetics. Our favorite, and staple product for decades, the Ryamar Cream with Amaranth oil, has healed skin from various ailments, moisturized and toned for a healthy glow while filling our cabinets, suitcases and beach bags ensuring we never run out. The beauty benefits of the magical amaranth oil we'll discuss in our upcoming blog while here we'll share our favorite way to eat Amaranth beautifying your skin from within.

The saying 'you are what you eat' is so true, and what you eat will show up on your skin. So if you want to look and feel your best, it is essential to re-assess what is lining your pantry and fridge, as much as what is lining your beauty routine counter. Our go to for a power breakfast, or even a healthy and quick lunch is our beauty bowl (inspired by BareBowls, Palo Alto, CA).
Prep Time: 10 min.  |  Total Time: 20 min. | Party of Four
1 cup Blueberries (organic please)
1 cup Rasberries (organic please)
1/2 cup Pomegranate Seeds
2 table spoons Amaranth Seed
1/2 cup cooked Amaranth 
One Apple, sliced (no core, munch on it ;)
Coconut Milk Yogurt (our preference, but you choose your fave)
A splash of Coconut or Almond Milk
Agave or honey (optional)
Cardamon or cinnamon (optional)
This recipe is so simple and so yummy! Start by boiling three cups of water, then add 1/2 cup Amaranth seed, cook 20 min. While the amaranth is cooking prep all of your ingredients. We love fresh berries so we add 1 cup of both blueberries and raspberries to this recipe but feel free to add a bit less (or more!). Slice up your apple in to thin and bite sized slices, cut open your pomegranate or if you buy the seeds already prepped even better. Mix the yogurt well, we like ours nice and silky smooth. Once the amaranth is ready (you will know once it's soft and shinny) you can wait for it too cool a bit, or mix it into your yogurt. Once the yogurt/amaranth mixture is ready, serve in to bowls and sprinkle with your favorite berries, adding some agave or honey if you like it sweet and cardamon or cinnamon if you like spices (we do!). We splash almond milk on top evenly for added flavor. Lastly, sprinkle some amaranth seeds for crunch and enjoy!
With Love,
