Bacon contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 & B12. It is a great source of selenium, which is a powerful antioxidant and is important for thyroid health. Don’t be too worried about the fat content, especially of you have regular high intake of vegetables and eat bacon in moderation.
Leeks are a great source of vitamins A, C and K and contain lots of dietary fiber.
Tomatoes have a long list of health benefits and they are rich in vitamins C & K, potassium & folate. The bright red color comes from the phytonutrient lycopene which enhances its benefits by cooking with oil.
