Buy canned tomatoes over fresh.

Health Benefits: The most nutritious tomatoes in the supermarket aren't in the produce aisle! Processed tomatoes are the richest known source of lycopene, because of their concentrated state. When buying fresh, look for smaller size and deeper color; you'll get more nutrients. If you have a choice, deep red tomatoes have more antioxidants than yellow, gold, or green tomatoes.

Well, boo. I started a tomato plant this year and got a yellow one just because I thought it would be interesting. Didn't realize it would be less nutritious. :-\

We do both.  I know that due to the canning and flash freezing process, many times canned and frozen veggies are more nutritious.
