Would you like a cherry tomato on top? Did you know that ten cherry tomatoes have almost as much potassium as a medium banana?  Eating potassium-rich foods lowers blood pressure and increases your body’s ability to excrete sodium improving your overall heart health.  Cherry tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and other antioxidants. According to Medical News Today, “Tomatoes can help combat the formation of free radicals known to cause cancer. Tomatoes also contain lycopene. Lycopene is a polyphenol, or plant compound, that has been linked with one type of prostate cancer prevention. ”
