April is National Florida Tomato Month. Tomatoes are a delicious part of a healthy diet. They’re rich in Vitamin A, C and folic acid. They also contain antioxidants lycopene, choline, beta-carotene, lutein, and alpha-lipoic acid. They’re also low in calories and are a staple ingredient in many recipes.
