While you are in the gym getting your inches snatched, this dairy, gluten-free avocado pasta is a great substitute for alfredo pasta and a beneficial addition to your diet. Salmon contains DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) which promotes healthy skin, and helps to tone and firm up your face with the help of B vitamins.
