Tanning

Strong, healthy heart—check.

Slim, trim body—check.

Increased energy—check.

Lovely, sun-kissed glow—wait, what …?

Fair-skinned folks should know that the secret to a sexy tan is in the fruit basket, not the tanning bed. That’s right: Researchers at Bristol University have found that a golden tan enhanced by beta-carotene found in orange and green fruits and vegetables was preferred over that leathery look brought on by baking in the sun.

And just like that, there’s yet another reason (there are billions more) to load up the grill with asparagus this Memorial Day weekend and beyond.
