You guys know I love eating the rainbow whether that be with vegetables or skittles. Eating in color feeds your eyes and your stomach and I am all about that! Recently, I’ve been on a tomato kick and love having a few with basically every meal.
It adds a fun juicy texture, some sweetness, and amps up the nutrients in my meals. What more could a girl want?
Did you know that tomatoes are good for your heart health? Lycopene, that is found in tomatoes, can actually decrease the bad cholesterol in your body. There’s never a bad time to start taking care of your heart and if adding in some ketchup or eating a tomato or two can help, why not?
They lycopene in tomatoes also can help in preventing sunburn. I would love to say that I am on top of my skin regimen and wear sun screen every time I go out, but I most definitely do not so if tomatoes will help me out even a little bit with that I will take it!
The fluid in fiber in these delicious guys will also help you out in the digestive department…we all know that a sad gut is a major pain in the butt 😅 We all want to have happy tummies especially with all the cookies that we are consuming so adding in tomatoes can help make sure you stay nice and regular 🙂
I’m not sure if bathing in tomato juice will make skunk smell go bye since I have no experience there, but it does so many other wonderful things!
How do you guys feel about tomatoes? Do you love it or hate it?
