A tomato is a nutrient-dense superfood that offers benefit to a range of bodily systems. Its nutritional content supports healthful skin, weight loss, and heart health.
For some reason, I’ve always really enjoyed tomatoes. I recall my grandparents cutting slices of tomato for lunch. My grandpa would cut a slice and then like a proper gentleman would cut the slice into smaller pieces and I’d watch him get the salt and pepper shakers and give one swift shake of each onto the tomato.
With so many different variations of tomatoes, there are so many things that you can do with them from salads to sauces to the main ingredient in your entree.
