Reasons to eat tomatoes
One 1/2 Cup tomatoes provides:
- a good source of Vitamins A and C.
- a great source of lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that may help lower the risk of some cancers, promotes heart health and keeps the immune system healthy.
- Use raw tomatoes to make your own salsas or as a base for soups and sauces.
- Look for tomatoes that are firm and give slightly to general pressure.
- Store ripe tomatoes at room temperature instead of in the fridge.
