Lots of Tomatoes!

First, we were taught the basics about tomatoes. Now, let’s learn more about ALL the different colors of tomatoes. Take a look:

Dr. Fuhrman is very pro-tomato. Tomatoes are one of his top seven foods. Check it out:
  • Black raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Flax Seeds
  • Green Leafy Vegetables
  • Tomatoes
  • Broccoli sprouts
Seriously, tomatoes are wonderful foods. Read this about prostate cancer. From Dr. Fuhrman:
Eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables, rich not only in lycopene but in thousands of other protective compounds. Each year, researchers find another carotenoid that has powerful beneficial effects and reduces cancer. Spinach was this year’s recipient of the anti-prostate cancer award, with researchers in Japan finding neoxanthin compounds (a class of carotenoids) that powerfully inhibit prostate cancer. In the past, pink grapefruit, watermelon, cooked tomatoes, pomegranate, cruciferous vegetables, red peppers, berries, figs, and many other foods all have been shown to inhibit the development of prostate cancer.
Very cool! And I’ve got a tomato inspired surprise up my sleeve for the spring…to be continued.

Ooooh, I just love toms! I ate too many baskets of the sweetest most delicious cherry tomatoes last summer. I nearly cried when they went out of season :^) I'm eagerly awaiting them. It's already warming up around my hometown!

What ya got for us, Gerr?!
