Benefit from Tomato

Thanks GOD it's Friday! Come weekend- more bonding with my baby Iris. When I am not busy at work (Saturday) I tag her with me so that she'll see other people than us (my sister and mother) in the house.

My daughter Iris is not picky when it comes to food. She ate anything you give her. Fruits, vegetables, fish and she is a sweet tooth person. Well, most of our kids are sweet tooth, right?. even me is a sweet tooth person. She actually love nips.. When you are going to give her biscuit and nips she'll surely choose nips! and she also love dutchmill drink. Good thing during meal time she ate rice and any viand you give her.

I have mention in my main blog that we already had Sari-sari Store and we also sell tomato, onions and garlic...and look what happen when no one is paying attention to her. She mess up with tomato display and bite/eat them! Buti na lang nakita ko..and find her cute seeing her bite those tomato! so grab my cam and click! click! LOL. When I try to take away all the tomatoes she'd cry! so there I give her one.

What are the benefit we can get from Tomatoes?

Do you know that tomato is actually fruit not vegetable.? Yes, you heard me right. It belong to nightshade family of plants such as pepper, potatoes, and eggplants. Tomato is rich in Lycopene. Lycopene is very vital anti-oxidant which help fight against cancerous cell formation and other health diseases. It is also rich in Vitamin C if eaten fresh. Aside from anti-oxidant, lycopene has been scientifically proven to help protect skin from sun damage because it nuetralize the harmful effects of ultraviolet light. The more you eat tomato your sunburn protection will increase by 33%.

If your a beach whore person eat more tomato now! :)
