Cherry Tomatoes for a Healthy Snack
tomatoes are a great snack choice because they are small, tasty
and provide important nutrients. Tomatoes are low in Sodium, and
very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. They're also a good source
of Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate,
Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Dietary
Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Potassium and Manganese.
Good-quality cherry tomatoes will be firm, smooth-skinned and be
at least pink in color. Tomatoes that are partially green will ripen
if left at room temperature.
Avoid product that is too soft, wrinkled or that has broken skin.
Tomatoes with a green blush will ripen, but avoid product with blotchy
green or brown areas
Cherry tomatoes are perfect for dipping. However, make sure to
choose healthy dipping sauces that are low in fat, sugar and calories.
My favorite dipping sauces are made by Walden Farms. They are made
from the worlds finest aged vinegars, dozens of fresh ground
herbs and spices, natural flavors and ice cold, triple filtered
water. They are all calorie free, sugar free and fat free!
