A tomato a day keeps the doctor away!
People today are quick to run to their medicine cabinets for a pill to cure their ailments. What they don’t stop to think about is the natural medicines found all around them -- in nature’s foods. Especially in the United States -- which is the most obese country in the world -- people need to wake up to the benefits of healthy eating! Their very lives depend on it.
Along with other healthy foods mentioned on this website, we felt the need to add the finest of the fruits—the tomato. Tomatoes are full of the nutrient, Lycopene -- a vital anti-oxidant that helps guard against breast, prostate, pancreatic, intestinal and other cancers, as well as heart disease and Age-Related Macular Degeneration, amongst other things. And interestingly, when combined with oil, Lycopene levels increase. Therefore, cooking tomatoes does not diminish its benefits. Slathering your tomato with olive oil, regardless of its fat content, not only makes it more tasty but increases its health benefits. Eating tomatoes, either raw or cooked, will benefit you greatly.
The pros for tomatoes don’t stop there. Tomatoes are rich in not just one vitamin but three. Vitamins A, B & C can be found in tomatoes as well as beta-carotene, fiber and anti-oxidants. Tomatoes lower cholesterol levels which lowers the risk of chronic heart disease, and they also promote healthy skin.
Another plus for the tomato is its versatility. Tomatoes can be enjoyed so many ways. Even if a person doesn’t like to eat tomatoes raw, oftentimes they still like tomato sauces and enjoy pizza, spaghetti or even tomato juice. Below are just a few suggestions of how to enjoy this beneficial food. Find one that tickles your taste buds and start strengthening your body, today!
