Fix-It And Enjoy-It! Healthy Cookbook
Phyllis Pellman Good
Recipe: Charlotte Hagner, Montague, MI

Dietitian's tip: Tomatoes are a good source of lycopene, an antioxidant that may help protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease. Lycopene is most plentiful in red tomatoes and is best absorbed when the tomatoes have been cooked.
