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.

How do you perfer your tomatoes?

We eat mostly fresh tomatoes, they are one of my daughter's favorite snacks. I keep canned diced tomatoes on hand for cooking.

 I use alot of can tomatoes for cooking.  I use fresh when they are home grown and in season locally.
