We love the month of April. The cold days are behind us and you can start to feel spring in the air. And of course, it means we can celebrate World Health Day on April 7th! This year is particularly exciting because World Health Day falls just one day after National Fresh Tomato Day on April 6th. Double the celebrations!
It has never been so important to take care of our health. Eating foods high in nutrients can help with many health conditions and ensure we take care of our bodies and minds. How about a kick start to your healthy eating journey by enjoying some fresh Tomatoes? Tomatoes are loaded with nutrients and they can be as sweet as candy! Check out a few other awesome tomato benefits below.
Great source of Vitamins
Just one serving of tomatoes contains up to 40% of your recommended daily vitamin C. They’ll also provide a healthy dose of vitamin A supporting your vision and skin, Vitamin K for strong bones, and potassium to help with overall heart and muscle health, and keep that blood pressure in check!
High in Antioxidants
Lycopene is an antioxidant that is responsible in helping lower your chances of developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer and strokes. It fights molecules called free radicals that can damage your cells and affect your immune system. In addition, it aids in lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure. Keep your heart and body happy with a healthy serving of tomatoes each day!
Good for your Eyes
Do your eyes sometimes feel tired after an endless day of staring at a screen? Try adding more tomatoes into your diet! Tomatoes have a substance called lutein and zeaxanthin that some studies have shown to help protect your eyes from the blue light of digital devices.
If that’s not enough to encourage you to eat more tomatoes, their taste will sell themselves! With a variety of different sizes, textures, and shapes, Windset Farms® has a tomato for everyone! Whether you like Cameo® Cherry Tomatoes that are super sweet with a nice crunch for your salads, or earthy Virtuoso® Beefsteak Tomatoes for your sauces, we have a tomato grown just for you. Check out our list of products here. If it’s kitchen inspiration you’re after, a list of recipes from our renowned chefs can be found here!
