If ever I’m completing a Reboot, I have to have a tomato based juice at night. It’s my thing! A savory tomato juice is also great as a meal replacement or late-day snack. And of course, don’t forget brunch! It’s like a guilt-free Bloody Mary.
Tomatoes aren’t just a tasty ingredient to incorporate into your juices. They are also high in vitamin C, lycopene, zeaxanthin, vitamin A and potassium. And the antioxidants present in tomatoes have been found to be potentially protective against many types of cancers, including colon, prostate, breast, endometrial, lung and pancreatic. The total oxygen radical absorbance capacity (or ORAC, a measure of antioxidant capacity) in tomatoes is 367 µmol TE/100 g.
