Tomatoes... a Nutrient Powerhouse :

  Tomatoes belong to the nightshade family of common vegetables that include chili peppers, potatoes, and eggplant and are native to Central America being originally cultivated by the Aztec people. They were distributed throughout the world by Spanish explorers and have been cultivated into many hundreds of differing varieties with varying flavors, shapes and colors.
  The health benefits of tomatoes are noteworthy. Tomatoes have very few calories at just 5 calories per ounce and are very low in fat with zero cholesterol. They are an excellent source of antioxidants, dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins notably potassium, vitamin-A, vitamin C and B-Complex vitamins.
