Did you know that 2022 is the year of the tomato?

January marks the time of new beginnings, fresh starts, and resolutions for good health. Even though it’s natural to start off the New Year thinking about all of the goals you want to set, don’t get too caught up in extreme health trends. Instead, we encourage you to focus on a well-rounded, sustainable, and healthful diet, as this makes a significant difference when it comes to preventing chronic diseases (such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer). Everyone is different, so find a strategy that feels right for you. This month, we’re sharing some tasty and nutritious recipes (featuring canned and jarred tomatoes, of course) that will fuel your body and soul for the upcoming year. Plus, keep an eye out on our social media channels for more inspiration on how to use those canned tomatoes and jarred sauces in your kitchen! This month we’re featuring easy recipes that are easy, healthy, affordable, and #SimplySatisfying

January 1st is always #NationalBloodyMaryDay!

Go out for your favorite Bloody, or try making your own at home! This is our favorite variation from our RD buddy Christy Wilson!

HOW TO OBSERVE: Enjoy a Bloody Mary. Select your favorite combinations and get ready for the new year. Have you tried pickled beans or asparagus?

Of course, the best way to celebrate the day is with friends. And remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive. Use #NationalBloodyMaryDay and tag @TomatoWellness to share on social media.

Making healthy meals doesn’t have to be time-consuming or complicated. By using canned goods, you can actually get dinner on the table in no time at all without breaking the bank!

Since Gen Z consumers are constantly looking for more ways to boost their fruit and vegetable intake while eating more plant-based meals, canned products are looking like the hot trend of 2022!

Restaurants have had another rough year of pivots, supply chain and labor issues and starts and stops. Please continue to go out, order delivery or curbside and help our friends in Hospitality as they continue to battle back into business.
