I can’t believe it is already the 4th of July!  Seems like I wait all year for summer to arrive and then it just flies by. But with all this activity outdoors and the upcoming outdoor barbequing and celebrating, we need to be mindful of the power of the sun and the effect it can have on our bodies, especially if you are planning on celebrating the 4th with a few alcoholic drinks along with friends! Here are a few practical tips to ensure you have the best 4th of July ever, no matter how you decide to celebrate! Read More

What to Do With All Those Tomatoes

We had a wonderful group in the garden recently, talking about tomatoes, of all things. Yes, it is that time of the year. We are beginning to see the start of another abundant tomato harvest. We talked about how to know when to pick a tomato, how to store it for maximum freshness and taste, even how to hasten the ripening process if your fruit is still green (yes, we even talked about the fact that tomatoes are biologically a berry, not a vegetable!) If you are one of those who love tomatoes and want to take advantage of this fruit at the peak of its flavor and goodness, now is the time to buy them, when prices are low and they are in abundance. You don’t have to eat them all at once either! Here is a summary of some of the storage ideas we talked about. Read More

Tomato Watermelon Gazpacho...Cocktail?

Thought I'd get your attention with that title! I made this "gazpacho" recently for a talk I was giving on how to get the most nutritional value out of your tomatoes this summer. It is based on a recipe I found on Nom Nom Paleo, a website I love and frequent often! We were sampling from several tomato based recipes, so I served this soup in small cups instead of bowls. As I was sipping this wonderful creation, it occurred to me that it makes a really good drink! Read More

The Grocery Store Palette – The Color Red

The tomatoes in the garden are not yet ready to harvest, but their lovely red color is the inspiration for today’s blog. I love color. In fact, I have been working with colors for the past 25 years as a professional artist. I love mixing it, blending it, painting it on my canvas - but more than anything I like eating it. Wait, what? Eating it? No, I am not referring to paint colors here, but the beautiful palette of food that you can find in the produce department of your grocery store. Each one of these colorful fruits and vegetables are small packages of goodness for our health, each with their own special combination of nutrients to offer. We discussed the goodness of yellow last week (link to last week), but what about all those wonderful red fruits and vegetables? What can they offer us? Some of these, like tomatoes, red peppers, and watermelon may be familiar to us. Some are less common, like guavas or persimmons. But I encourage you to expand your horizons and try them all for the unique health benefits each possess. Read on for list of some of these fruits and vegetables and their health benefits. Read More
