Tomato, Tomato I Love My Tomatoes

I have this addiction of growing and eating tomatoes. Do you have any idea how good tomatoes are for you?  I didn’t but because I love eating them so much I decided it might be a very good idea for me to find out what I am putting in my body each time I devour a bunch of tomatoes.

Apparently, there are MANY health benefits to eating tomatoes because they have a wealth of vitamins and nutrients that include impressive amounts of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as significant amounts of vitamin B6, folate, and thiamin. The lovely gems of goodness are also a good source of copper, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium.
