Ode to the tomato...

...oh, how I love thee!

I haven't really posted on here much because I've been busy with my experiment on Raw Food Wannabe and there really just isn't as much going on in Michigan during the fall. The farmers markets are still going on, and I definitely encourage you to check some out before it gets too cold!

Since I've been making raw food recipes every (almost!) day for the last few weeks, I've been using a lot of tomatoes. And I researched their health benefits, out of curiosity. I always heard tomatoes were good for prostrate, but was astounded at all of their other health benefits. Maybe I'm the last to know this, but I thought I'd share! Health Benefits of Tomatoes

And I absolutely love basil and oregano, which are also so good for you it's crazy! It makes almost any raw food recipe with vegetables taste better!

I've also been using Vanilla a lot as a sweetener. One site even claimed Vanilla was good for breast cancer! Who knew Vanilla was so healthy? I just love how it smells! I guess I never thought of it as healthy because it's usually mixed in sugary, fattening foods!
