Garden-fresh tomatoes that burst with flavor are one of summertime’s most abundant gifts to man. We could rave all day about their incredible taste, but one medium tomato provides you with more than a quarter of your vitamin C per day, and it’s also full of vitamin E and beta-carotene. Replenish your electrolytes and lower your blood pressure with a handful of cherry tomatoes. And let us not forget the power of lycopene, an antioxidant that reduces inflammation and may decrease your risk of stroke. An apple a day is nice, but a tomato a day could be better.
