Tomatoes and Avocados - Why You Should Eat Them Together?
It is really no surprise that tomatoes and avocados are healthy for us; but what is it about this combination that makes these two foods go from merely good to super healthy?
Tomatoes, which contain the antioxidant lycopene, are considered a SUPER food. Eat some avocado at the same time and you've got a SUPER SUPER food -- the healthy fat in the avocado helps the body absorb seven times more lycopene.
Getting more lycopene is important because it has been found to play a big role in the prevention of cancer, inflammatory diseases, and age-related illnesses such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
