Not enough vegetables in your diet? The solution has been found: eat more beef tomatoes. A recent reviewtells us that beef tomatoes may be the key to improving the average diet.
The beef tomato has long been subject of debate, is it a vegetable or a fruit? It doesn’t really matter what it is, the tomato is great for your health. It can reduce your risk of heart disease and keep you looking young. It’s rich in potassium, folate, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber and lycopene. Lycopene is why a tomato is red. It’s also found in watermelon and pink grapefruit as well. In this review, the authors state that lycopene levels increase with processing, due to heating and oil, which makes the lycopene more usable by our bodies. However, the same results will occur in your own kitchen by roasting tomatoes in the oven or making a marinara sauce from scratch.
