TOMATOES

There are so many different types of tomatoes, it’s unreal. From the Heirloom (our favorite) to the Cherry tomato, each has a unique taste and flavor. They’re known for maintaining and helping all sorts of parts of our bodies (bones, skin, eyes, hair, kidney, brain, etc.). They improve digestion, prevent kidney/bladder stones and increase our fat burning capacity. Take a look at some of our tomato posts and recipes below!
