Lycopene. Do you know what it is? It's a carotenoid, from the family of pigments that gives fruits and vegetables the bright hues of orange, red & yellow. It's also an antioxidant that helps lower the risk of strokes, prostate cancer and other kinds of cancer. And where do we get this incredible lycopene? From our very own fridge. They come from the tomatoes!
Tomatoes are botanically considered as fruit but in the culinary world, they are treated as vegetables because of their low sugar content. And here are 5 salad combinations that are really good! One, for every day of the week when you are too tired to put something elaborate for dinner. Very healthy and easy recipes to follow in a snap!
