The magic word you need to know is ‘Lycopene’ – an antioxidant that activates once tomatoes become cooked. Lycopene helps to mop up damaging free radicals in the body that harm our healthy cells…it’s also been reported to support your body to fight cancers of the prostate, breast and stomach. Worth incorporating into your diet if you don’t have an intolerance or allergy concerning tomatoes. Just be careful not to eat too many – a few here and there with breakfast, lunch or dinner a couple of times a week will suffice.
