Healing Foods -Event Announcement

This month Seduce Your Tastebuds hosts Siri's Healing foods.Thanks a bunch Siri for giving me this wonderful opportunity to explore the beautiful and beneficial world of healing foods...

This month I have chosen a vegetable [actually categorized under fruits]
  • That was once considered to be poisonous!!Its botanical name translates into 'wolf-peach' giving us the idea that it is cannot be consumed.
  • It is native to Western South America and Central America.
  • It is available all through the year.
  • It is nutritious and very versatile.
  • The french call it 'Love apple'!!!
Yes,yes,I am talking about the TOMATOES !!!!

Everyone sure does know about the benefits of Tomatoes.Here is a small recap...
  • Purifies the blood
  • Improves complexion
  • Natural antiseptic
  • Antioxidant rich
  • Rich source of Vitamin K
  • Nicotinic acid in tomato helps reduce cholesterol.
  • Decreases the risk of several cancers
  • Anti inflammatory property
With loads of health benefits,this has become the star of the month on the healing foods calender...

There are umpteen ways in which tomatoes are used in our day to day cooking like....
  • Soups
  • Salads
  • Chutneys / Dips / Sauces / Ketchup
  • Pickles / Preserves
