Nutritional values

These tomatoes contain hardly any fat and only 65 calories per serving, but provide plenty of folic acid, potassium, and vitamin C. Folic acid is involved in protein metabolism and all cell divisions. Potassium is essential for keeping liquid levels balanced and for the regulation of healthy blood pressure. Vitamin C ensures the formation and maintenance of connective tissue and promotes iron absorption.

Feel free to replace the zucchini with cucumber.
