Featured food of the day tomatoes.

"Tomatoes are a treasure of riches when it comes to their antioxidant benefits. In terms of conventional antioxidants, tomatoes provide an excellent amount of vitamin C and beta-carotene; a very good amount of the mineral manganese; and a good amount of vitamin E. In terms of phytonutrients, tomatoes are basically off the chart.

While not as thoroughly researched as these other areas of antioxidant support, cardiovascular support, and anti-cancer benefits, several other health benefit areas are important to mention with respect to tomatoes. Diets that include tomatoes have been linked with reduced risk of some neurological diseases (including Alzheimer's disease) in multiple studies. Tomato-containing diets have also been linked in a few studies with reduced risk of obesity."

We have lost count of the times we have referred to the Worlds Healthiest Foods website, a fantastic resource of very in depth information on food. From nutrient values to the best way to cook, it is a masterpiece.

After using the free website for a couple of years, we thought it was payback time, and purchased the book from Amazon, price including postage £28. Maybe it should be renamed ‘the worlds heaviest food book’ ! At 880 pages, close to A4 size and two inches thick in paperback, it’s one hell of a beast. 

We cannot recommend it highly enough, the book is not aimed at diabetics, or low carbers, but we believe the book will be priceless, for anyone wanting to understand what good food is all about, and the correct way to prepare and cook, without wasting vital nutrients and flavours. In our opinion, this book is fantastic value for money, and an absolute must have for all foodies, check it out on the website below.

Cherry tomatoes, the smaller variety are good in salads. Val

I agree Val the smaller variety do go well in salads.

A large sliced tomato with some mozzarella cheese makes a quick and easy lunch dish.

Thanks for your comment
