Tomatoes
Ingredients

Tomatoes are a great source of vitamin C and they carry a substance called lycopene that provides health benefits, including cancer prevention and maintaining good vision.
Look for tomatoes that are smooth and deep in color. Do not refrigerate un-ripe tomatoes it makes them watery.
The most flavorful tomatoes are grown locally and ripened on the vine.

Cooking Instructions

To serve: serve raw chopped or sliced or roast . Try the recipe for Easy Baked Tomatoes.
Tip: Prepared tomato products can be a big source of sodium. A medium size fresh tomato carries only 11 mg of sodium, 4 ounces tomato juice 400 mg sodium and 4 ounces tomato sauce 740 mg sodium. Use fresh or no salt added tomato products -eating cooked tomato products twice a week seems to prevent cancer.
