If you've never had an heirloom tomato, you're in for a real treat. These nutrient-rich tomatoes have a wonderful sweet and salty flavor, and make an excellent addition to any meal or snack. In today's recipe I share a beautifully simple way to enjoy them that lets their flavor shine.
Rich in nutrients
Heirloom tomatoes are are rich in vitamins C, K, A, and B-complex, as well as potassium, chromium, biotin, and beta carotene. This amazing array of nutrition makes heirloom tomatoes excellent for helping to nourish the adrenal glands, reduce stress damage, build the immune system, lower blood pressure, protect against skin damage, improve cardiovascular health, and strengthen bones.
Help prevent cancer
Heirloom tomatoes are also an excellent source of lycopene, a super-antioxidant, which is known to help prevent breast, pancreatic, intestinal, bladder, cervical, colorectal, lung, skin, endometrial, and prostate cancers.
Heirloom tomatoes are also known to aid in the digestion of dense proteins, assist in dissolving gallstones, and purify the blood making them highly beneficial for your digestive tract and lymphatic system.
During the summer, heirloom tomatoes can be found abundantly at your local farmers markets, some grocery stores, or grown in your garden. Have fun tasting all the different varieties and enjoying each unique and delicious flavor profile.
