5. Sun Dried Tomatoes (Your bones will thank you)
Tomatoes contain many health benefits. However, because of their high moisture content, they can quickly deteriorate. Drying out tomatoes by removing the water content can greatly preserve the life of tomatoes. Sun dried tomatoes are especially high in protein and fiber content.
A cup of sun dried tomatoes also contains 39% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of potassium, and 82% of the RDI of iron for men. Sun dried tomatoes are a great source of B complex vitamins. In addition they are a good source of calcium for bone health.
