A Tomato A Day…


One of my favorite things during the summer is having fresh tomatoes from the garden. I grew up spoiled by this as my parents always kept a garden in the yard and they still do! Unfortunately, it did ruin buying tomatoes from the grocery store because there is no comparison. Vine ripened tomatoes are juicer and have so much more flavor. And when you look at the health benefits, you can’t go wrong. The big one with tomatoes is they are rich in lycopene, which is shown to fight prostate cancer, but there are many other benefits too. They also contain beta-carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin E as well as potassium. You just can’t go wrong adding them to salads, sandwiches or just eating one by itself. It makes a great snack!
