Beauty from the Inside Out: Tomato Sauce

It's one thing to pamper your body on the outside with skin-loving handmade bath & body products, but what about the inside? Natural beauty just doesn't come from the products we put on our skin, but it also comes from our state of mind (being healthy mentally and content - I'll touch on this more in future posts) and from the foods we feed our bodies.

Today's power food is Tomato Sauce!

You're probably thinking, "you mean my super budget friendly would-put-a-college-student-to-shame cheap pasta and sauce is good for me!?".. Yup, that's what I'm saying! Although now that you're "grown up", you may want to opt for the whole wheat pasta, but keep that tomato sauce coming because it's full of lycopene. Lycopene is an antioxidant that helps skin protect itself from the suns rays. One of word of advice though, stick with the low-sodium brands.
