Tomato is a superstar within the fruit and green veggie pantheon. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful cancer fighter. They’re also made in Vitamin C. The good news is that cooked tomatoes are also nutritious, so use them in food, soups and casseroles, pasta, as well as in salads.
The British Thoracic Society says that tomatoes and apples can reduce your risk of asthma and chronic lung diseases. Both contain the antioxidant quercetin. To enjoy the benefits, eat five apples a week or a tomato each alternative day.
