On tonight’s episode of How to Live to 100 (9pm ET on Cooking Channel), Jason finds that tomatoes are the perfect superfood for stronger bones and healthier skin (both essential for living to 100.) As an added bonus, the fiber in these magical fruits will do wonders for your waistline. The best part, the cherry tomato on top, is that Jason takes tomatoes are uses them in dishes like Cream of Green Tomato Soup, Peruvian Quinoa Stuffed Tomatoes with Tomatillo Salsa, Sweet Dessert Crepes with Strawberry Tomato Sauce and Grilled Zucchini Tacos with Smoked Tomatoes.
