The tomato typically has a thin skin. It’s bursting with its own unique flavor, while blending well with other vegetables. When blended the tomato flavor may be hard to recognize, but it enhances everything around it. Mexican Indians brought tomato seeds to Europe. Tomatoes are high in vitamins C, A, K and Potassium.
You may not want to bring food into the library but books are full of information about healthy eating and healthful living. Did you know that, "Libraries play one of the most important roles in our food movement. Tucked quietly inside their brick walls lies free access to food literacy, which itself may be the most powerful first-line tool in our war against a poor food system." Amber Stott, Found of Food Literacy Center. http://awakeatthewhisk.com/libraries-food-movement.
In the library you will find productive ways to bring nutritious food to your home and community. Whether you cook from scratch, go to the local Farmer's Market or eat fresh produce raw from the grocery store. Fresh food is fast food. Be well and enjoy vegetables!
