Healthier raw or cooked?

After dinner treat: Yellow tomatoes from the greenhouse. So sweet and delicious they’re like a pudding (well nearly 😂)! There’s nothing like eating in season 😍🍅 

Typically the closer that you eat fruits and veg from the time / day that they’re picked the higher the concentration of vitamins and minerals (micronutrients). 
However tomatoes also benefit from being cooked as some of the micronutrients (lycopene) are higher (increased bioavailability) when the tomato is heated. So to get the maximum benefit from tomatoes eat them raw (for the vitamin C) and cooked (for the lycopene) 😀
