Tomatoes, a kind of fruit, can be considered a natural medicine, especially if they’re organic.
In Calabria there’s a large cultivation of tomatoes, which are a source of water, vitamins and minerals.
They’re rich in vitamin C, which greatly helps our immune system, and in lycopene, which protects us against aging diseases. Tomatoes have a low calorie intake, so they’re suitable for a balanced nutrition.
Sundried tomatoes sauce is a tasteful appetizer which goes hand in hand with olives, mushrooms, cheeses, cold cuts. It’s good with meat and fish dishes, but also as filing, and you can add it to first dishes too.
