Guardian food writer Lynne Michelle claims that some foods can really make us beautiful, giving us the right mix of nutrients and vitamins to keep us looking at our best.
But what should we be eating to become body beautiful?

Avocados are naturally high in fat, however most of this is healthy and monounsaturated, which is great for plump, youthful skin.

Broccoli is rich in folate, which can help reduce the risk of heart disease. It is high in fibre, essential in cutting bowel cancer, digestive disorder and heart disease risk.
With the added benefit of antioxidants and beta-carotene it’s a top heart health booster.
For warding off colds
Even during the summer months colds can strike, leaving the body lethargic and congested.
Onions and garlic have been shown to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which ward off colds and flu.
They have also been linked to helping prevent cancer, thinning the blood to prevent clots and boosting good cholesterol.
For good hair, nails and skin
Brazil nuts are often cited as a superfood and it’s easy to see why when you find out how packed full of vitamins and nutrients they are.
They offer a great source of selenium, which boosts skin elasticity, as well as the overall condition of your hair and nails. This nutrient can help with acne and also works to keep heart muscles in peak condition.
Brazil nuts contain a good amount of zinc, which eases dry skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema and can reduce the chances of it wrinkling.
