These tomato recipes make eating healthy a cinch. Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A,C, and K, as well as minerals like potassium. They also pack abundant amounts of lycopene when cooked, an antioxidant that imbues them with their glowing hue, and may be an extremely powerful agent in preventing and minimizing the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Tomatoes are at their peak nutritionally and flavor-wise in the summertime. In the winter, canned tomatoes and cherry tomatoes are a great product to cook with. When you’re at the market, look for bright, fragrant tomatoes that feel heavy for their size, and yield slightly when pressed. Store tomatoes at room temperature for up to three days and refrigerate when they’re very ripe.
