After a long day at work, most nurses find it easy to eat whatever presents itself first.

A tomato salad is best because it is healthy, has very few calories, yet can be quite filling.

Tomatoes are high in antioxidants and rich in vitamin C.

You can use fresh tomatoes from your garden if you have one, or organic tomatoes.
