Have a tomato

07-Tomato-HeartFoods-That-Look-Like-Body-Parts-1

Slice open a tomato and you’ll notice the red veggie has multiple chambers that resemble the structure of a heart. Studies have found that because of the lycopene in tomatoes, there is a reduced risk for heart disease in men and women who eat them.  If you mix them with a little fat, like olive oil or avocado, it will boost your body’s lycopene absorption nearly tenfold. Cooked tomato is a good choice because it is usually cooked with a little oil.
