Salma Hayek: Eat Fat to Look Young
The Oscar and Golden Globe nominated actress is married to Francois-Henri Pinault, the French billionaire who is the CEO of the fashion conglomerate that owns Gucci.
She is also the proud and attentive mother of 7 year old Valentina Paloma Pinault.
“I am 46 – I will not have Botox. You know why? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything.”
Despite her marital ties to the fashion industry, Hayek is critical of bone thin models.
Ms. Hayek’s beauty is no doubt partly the result of the nutrient dense diet she consumed as a young girl in Mexico which provided exceptional facial bone structure.
“In recent years, we have had to fight against our genetic nature to look like something we are not, to look like little boys.”
Her favorite traditional food known to be loaded with those healthy, wholesome fats that support beautiful skin well into old age?
“We have crickets, and then the ant’s eggs and then we have these worms. . . you fry them. You don’t eat them together, you eat them separately and they go in seasons. You fry them and then you put them in a tortilla and you put some guacamole in the tortilla. . . . If you fry anything, it tastes good, but they’re really delicious. The bugs are incredible.”
Fortunately, you don’t have to eat bugs to achieve the flawless, Botox-free skin the beautiful actress enjoys at middle age.
Other traditional fats like butter, tallow, coconut oil, lard, cream, and egg yolks included generously in the diet will give similar age defying results.
