In case you were wondering, a tomato is technically a fruit because it’s seed-bearing and develops from the ovary of a flowering plant. Here are seven, along with some simple ways to incorporate more tomatoes into your everyday meals and snacks.
      Tomatoes are a great source of vitamins. A single tomato can provide essential vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin K, which is good for your bones; and potassium, a key nutrient for heart function and muscle contractions.
2.      Tomatoes contain an antioxidant called lycopene, which is responsible for their red color. Research suggests that in terms of heart health benefits, it's more effective to eat tomatoes and tomato products than take lycopene supplements.
3.      Lycopene is also good for your eyes. And that's not the only peeper-protective nutrient in tomatoes; they contain lutein and beta-carotene as well.
4.      The fluid and fiber in tomatoes may be helpful if you're prone to constipation.
5.      Tomatoes can be a protective food for people with type 2 diabetes.
