There are so many nourishing reasons to get saucy in the kitchen with super-star fruit tomatoes. Tomatoes are rich in fiber, Vitamin K, which helps heal wounds, and the B vitamins, Thiamin, Niacin, and Vitamin B6, which prevent that “run down” feeling because they aid in energy metabolism at the cellular level, and are an excellent source of cancer-fighting, immune boosting antioxidants, A, C, and E. Need I say more?!

A high quality, nutritionally sound tomato sauce is super easy to make from scratch (see recipe below) however if you don’t have the time to DIY, there are a plethora of options available on supermarket shelves. However, not all jarred tomato sauces are equal. Make sure the sauce you select has no high-fructose corn syrup and/or trans-fat added, and isn’t chock full of preservatives and chemicals.
