If you didn't notice I LOVE tomatoes! Not just the taste or the texture but the nutritional part of them too. If you don't eat enough tomatoes, you are definitely missing out.
*They help keep a diabetics blood sugar under control.
*Tomatoes contain a lot of vitamins A and C, mostly because of beta-carotene, the more red a tomato is the better it is for you.
*They can reduce the damage to your body that is caused by smoking.
*Lowers blood pressure and high cholesterol.
*It is natural skin care. If you open up a tomato and lay it on your face for a couple minutes it works just as great as the high priced skin products.
*They are good for your hair, skin, teeth and bones.
*They can lessen the rick of gallstones or kidney stones.
*The lycopene in tomatoes can help lessen the chance of certain cancers.
*Eating raw tomatoes gives you more Vitamin C, Eating cooked tomatoes gives you more lycopene. So eating both can benefit you in different ways.
