Cherry tomatoes make great guilt free snack! When I open the fridge door looking for something to munch on, they are the first thing I see. They have a nice bright flavor that prevents me from grazing deeper in to the depths of the fridge. Plus, it is kind of fun to pop them in your mouth and hear them crunch! Each cherry tomato is only 3 calories. It is a great effortless way to pop in more servings of vegetables.
The cherry tomato is actually a berry, which is thought to have originated in the Andes mountains, It's also a good source of Vitamin E, Thiamine, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and a great source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Potassium.

Now I drink iced teas and enjoy whole foods which are much more satisfying and lack chemical additives.
