This fruit disguised as a veggie is one of the true delights of Summer. Tomatoes increase the skin's natural defenses and boost your skin's ability to protect itself from harmful rays. They also help decrease blood pressure, and fight pancreatic and breast cancer. If you eat tomatoes four times a week, which is easy to do in the Summer, you can lower your cholesterol. Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that combats cancer-causing free radicals.
Add tomatoes to your scrambled eggs and your sandwiches. Or make up a batch of Minty Tomato Couscous.
