Apparently this week is #britishtomatoweek! I blooming love tomatoes, life would be very dull without them indeed. Years ago I once tried to give them up when a friend told me how her skin had cleared up after avoiding the nightshade family. I was secretly quite delighted that it didn't seem to have the same miraculous affect on me! Sun-dried is probably my favourite, drizzled with olive oil, a few fresh tomatoes and some buffalo mozzarella.....yummmmmm!
But I digress, hurrah for the tomato, here are some tomato-tastic facts - tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene. A powerful antioxidant giving tomatoes the cancer-fighting label - rubbing fresh tomatoes on your skin can help alleviate sunburn - tomatoes are originally from Peru - tomatoes are a fruit - China is the largest producer of tomatoes
What yummy way will you enjoy tomatoes today?
