It is reported that our British Queen-to-be Kate Middleton, keeps the sparkle in her eye by eating non other than juicy tomatoes!
Tomatoes are high in lycopene (the ingredient that gives tomatoes their lovely colour), this powerful antioxidant not only helps with keeping our skin healthy, especially in the sun! But they also act as a natural skin protector and can help sun-damaged skin repair quicker than usual.
Shona Wilkinson, nutritionist at the Nutri Center says: Try the mediterranean diet trick to get the most from tomatoes – pick the reddest, ripest you can find and brush them with olive oil before grilling.
‘Tomato paste is also higher in lycopene than raw tomatos, so use plenty in cooking to get the best beauty benefits or try spreading it directly on a cracker.’
Another celebrity fan of tasty tomatoes is Penelope Cruz.
Better start packing up on the red fruit!
