The beautiful, curvaceous, ultra-talented Salma Hayek: what we wouldn’t give to have that body and brains!? Her secret? It all lies in her favorite foods, which may involve ingesting insects and downing bone broth soup. Up for the challenge? Read on!
Salma has always been a proponent of eating healthy to feel happy and believes juicing is an important part of that equation. In The Juice Generation, Salma wrote, “I used juicing to ensure I covered my nutritional bases every day, and as a tool to restore inner balance if my body needed a break from too much indulgence.”
Yep, you read that right. Salma enjoys the creepy crawlies. In fact, she attributes her flawless, youthful skin to them. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she explained how in México they, “have crickets, and then the ant’s eggs and then we have these worms. . . you fry them. . . If you fry anything, it tastes good, but they’re really delicious. The bugs are incredible.” We’ll take your word for it, girl.
Everybody has a guilty pleasure, though Salma’s is, albeit, quite tame. She enjoys dousing her popcorn with Valentina, a Mexican hot sauce. We wonder if she named her daughter (Valentina) after this same spicy concoction…
As a native of México, Salma is very proud of her roots. Even after a glamorous week at the Cannes Film Festival, she said there's “nothing like coming home to your mom’s tamales.”
Corn in Husk
Another Mexican delight, Salma is a huge fan of grilled corn in husk. Just add a pad of butter and she is one happy camper. It’s the simple things in life, y’know?
Bone Broth Soup
Yet another surprising food for Ms. Hayek. Salma is constantly keeping up her good looks and immaculate features by having a nutritious diet rich in protein and good fats. One of her favorite ways to get these integral nutrients is through bone broth soup. “It’s very good for all your health and it’s full of collagen, when you drink it, it’s like fat,” Salma said in an interview with Daily Mail. Looks like this star would take bone broth soup over Botox any day!
