    Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A. Studies show that tomatoes may lower the risk of different kinds of cancer because they contain lycopene, the phytonutrient that makes tomatoes red.

    Antioxidants help protect us from harmful free radicals – unstable oxygen molecules that harm healthy cells. Lycopene is found to concentrate in the prostate gland and is believed to have beneficial effects upon prostate cells.

    Lycopene is best absorbed into the body when eaten with a healthful fat. The olive oil in this recipe enables the lycopene to be better absorbed.

    Olives may prevent anemia due to their high content of iron. The type of fat in the olives – mono-unsaturated – has anti-inflammatory properties which may be beneficial in cancer prevention.
