A Noodle Salad That Could Give Your Skin a Boost

The building blocks of youthful-looking skin are collagen and elastin, yet as we age, our bodies produce less of both—which is why we begin to see wrinkles and sagging in the mirror. Protein-rich meals can help boost collagen and elastic production; a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that women with a wrinkled appearance had significantly lower intakes of protein than their unwrinkled counterparts. And if you're looking for a great protein source, it's hard to beat tuna. This fresh and simple Asian dish combines the fish with udon noodles, scallions, mint and cilantro and makes for a terrific lunch or dinner.
