I’ve never liked tomatoes.  Since I’ve started to consume more plant based foods, I still have a little bit of a gag feeling when I bit into a tomato by itself.  After reviewing the nutrients in Sun Dried Tomatoes, it is obvious that I need to find a way to get over my ill feelings toward tomatoes.  By packing 10%+ daily value of 16 micro – nutrients, sun dried tomatoes makes it onto my list of 5+ servings per day.
