How To Cut Tomatoes In Just 5 Seconds

You probably heard about tomatoes through ketchup. “No, we didn’t! We've already heard about tomatoes long before tomato ketchups exist! Idiot.” Wow. Right, I'm an idiot. But let me tell you something, tomato ketchup is invented in 1801. So tomato ketchup already existed right before your great great great grandmother is born. Now, look who’s an idiot? Anyway, we will not make ourselves crazy just because of tomato ketchup. But we’re going to talk about tomatoes. So wipe that tomato ketchup off your chin and we will have a little chat about tomatoes.

Tomatoes are “edible, often red fruit/berry of the nightshade Solanum lycopersicum, commonly known as a tomato plant.” Tomatoes are used as an ingredient for dishes, sauces, salads, and even drinks. *silence* Have you heard about tomato drinks? I wonder how that would taste like.*joke lol.....of course tomato juice is well know.

Well, a tomato is a fruit, but it can also be a vegetable. This fruit is popular because of its very high Lycopene which contributes to our health. Tomato plants grow to 1–3 meters (3–10 ft) in height and have a weak stem that often sprawls over the ground and vines over other plants.”

Tomato comes from the Spanish word ‘tomate’ and first appeared in print 1595. Long time ago, Europeans before think that tomatoes are dangerous and poisonous because of the bright and shiny fruit. Actually, the leaves are poisonous. Tomato plants belong to the deadly nightshade family. But now, everyone loves tomato plant! Except the leaves, of course.

Like I said, tomato is very rich in Lycopene. According to the editors of PureHealthMD, “lycopene is a nutrient that holds promise as a wonderful antioxidant. Lycopene belongs to the carotenoid family, which includes beta-carotene, lutein and zeanthin. Like its kin, lycopene intake seems to greatly benefit the body.” It helps protect the blood vessels and prevents heart attack. Tomato paste, a good source of lycopene, can also help stop the development of cardiovascular diseases.

Well, small but terrible tomatoes. What’s the best way to enjoy these health benefits? Buy all the tomatoes and grow tomato plants! Uhm, just stay away from the leaves though, ok?
