Tomatoes

Nothing says summer like a Jersey tomato. You cannot beat heirloom tomatoes right from the farm. Tomatoes are loaded with a substance called lycopene- an antioxidant -- that fights molecules called free radicals that can damage your cells and affect your immune system. Because of that, foods high in lycopene, like tomatoes, may make you less likely to have lung, stomach, or prostate cancer. Some research shows they might help prevent the disease in the pancreas, colon, throat, mouth, breast, and cervix as well.  Studies suggest that they may ease inflammation, boost your immune system, lower your cholesterol levels, and keep your blood from clotting. All those things may help prevent strokes. I mean... do we need any other reasons?
