Caprese Stacks

 

School’s out, it’s summer time, the temperature is rising and cooking is becoming a chore many of us no longer want to take on.  The good news is that our gardens will be full of fresh produce soon and nothing says summer like a freshly ripened tomato.

There are literally hundreds of tomato variations available.  Flavor, texture and appearance vary from one type of plant to another but the health benefits of tomatoes are consistent.

Rich in Lycopene:

The deep red color of tomatoes is caused by large amounts of lycopene.  Lycopene has been shown in studies to have antioxidant benefits.  Early studies have also shown that it may help people who suffer from asthma.

Reduce Heart Disease:

Because of the high antioxidant content and presence of Vitamins E and C, tomatoes have been shown to support cardiovascular system health.  The phytonutrients in tomatoes, including lycopene, may assist in regulation of fats in the bloodstream and decrease total cholesterol.

Caprese Stacks are a simple, no cooking required way to add summer ripened tomatoes to your diet today!
