Recently spotted on my home television: a Pasta Gravy commercial that begins with a woman spooning sauce onto her arm: Creative Sauce campaign of the year: Silver Palate is positioning eating (no, not actually wearing) their tomato sauces as Lycopene-rich, protective skin care.
From mayoclinic.com: "Many studies suggest that eating lycopene-rich foods or having high lycopene levels in the body may be linked to reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and age-related eye disorders."
Lycopene, n antioxidant phytonutrient, is also known for boosting your skin's defenses against the sun. Lycopene can be found in papayas, watermelon, carrots, and of course, tomatoes. So, open up a jar of tomato sauce tonight and 'anti-age' right there at the dinner table!
Until next time, they fabulous my friends!
