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.


Healthy Tips


  • 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.
