Summer is the season for tomatoes!
Here at the Co-op we love the many delicious varieties of tomatoes that are available in the summer. Tomatoes offer a juicy, fresh flavor and are a healthy meal addition to everything from potluck pasta salad to a classic sandwich.
Let us take some time to appreciate the tomato and all it has to offer.
Tomatoes are good sources of several vitamins and minerals
Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen in the body and plays an important role in immunity by acting as an antioxidant in the body. One medium-sized tomato can provide about 28% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI).
Tomatoes contain many phytochemicals
