Some Say Tomayto; Some Say Tomahto

I say tomalicious. Besides bursting with flavor, tomatoes are packed with powerful nutrients. Your entire body can benefit from one tomato. Every bite will give you:

• Hydration: Tomatoes are about 95% water so are very hydrating with low-calorie counts. 

• Fiber: Tomatoes are an excellent source of fiber.

• Vitamins and Minerals: Tomatoes contain vitamins C and K, Folate (B9), potassium, lycopene (an antioxidant), beta-carotene (an antioxidant the body converts into vitamin A), and more.

• Health Benefits: The nutrients in tomatoes can positively effect your heart, cholesterol levels, blood vessels, eyes, skin, energy level, blood sugar, and mood.

For the best-tasting tomatoes, look for locally grown because they are allowed to naturally mature rather than being artificially ripened with chemicals. Visit Coastal Alabama Farmers and Fishermen's Market every Tuesday in July from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. for a tomato sandwich. Some will say tomayto; some will say tomahto. Your taste buds and body will say thank you.
