The Spirituality of Tomatoes

Oh My God those red ripe beefsteaks, the little red pears, the yellow and orange varieties. 

I am in Heaven.  :smile:

Mmmm...yes.  The sensual experience of slicing a beefsteak tomato, still warm from your sunny garden, placing it on toasted bread, spreading a thin layer of mayo, a sprinkle of sea salt...the taste, the textures, the God-like trip of having grown your own food!

Definitely should be illegal!;)

Enjoy them I shall. They are the fruits of my labor, the reaping of the sowing, the nourishment of my body and soul.

Why will they be illegal, denying the government income and prison opportunities?

Oh, that's fine for store-bought tomatoes, but for home-grown, simple is best. No gilding the lily!

For you maybe. I like the marriage of avocado and tomato. If you're a purist then just the tomato plain. I like the orange cherry for munching.

Quote:

when Europeans first encountered them they believed them to be poisonous. This was not, as moderns are so happy to assume, merely the stupidity of earlier generations; tomatoes belong to the same botanical family as deadly nightshade. That the tomato would be as deadly as its cousin was a perfectly reasonable assumption, given the available evidence, and so we should not chide our forebears for their caution. (The leaves of the tomato plant are, in fact, mildly toxic, and so, far from being stupid, they were not even entirely incorrect.)




It will be the FDA acting in support of the public health!

It used to be thought that tomatoes were poisonous. Actually being a nightshade they can cause some people with arthritis problems. Or so the rumor goes.

(found in a Google search)

Solanine is a substance found in nightshade plants, including tomatoes, white potatoes, all peppers (except black pepper), and eggplant. In theory, if it is not destroyed in the intestine, solanine could be toxic. A horticulturist, Dr. Norman Childers, hypothesized that some people with OA may not be able to destroy solanine in the gut, leading to solanine absorption resulting in OA. Eliminating solanine from the diet has been reported to bring relief to some arthritis sufferers in preliminary research. Researchers have never put this diet to a strict clinical test; however, the treatment continues to be used by some doctors in people who have OA. Proponents claim exclusion of solanine requires up to six months before potential effects can be seen. Totally eliminating tomatoes and peppers requires complex dietary changes for most people. In addition, even proponents of the diet acknowledge that many arthritis sufferers are not helped by using this approach. Therefore, long-term trial avoidance of solanine-containing foods may only be appropriate for people with severe cases of OA who have not responded to other natural treatments.

There's one opinion.

I will gladly enjoy the anti-oxidant effect of tomatoes on my body in general and prostate in particular and not worry about the arthritis potential.  :smile:

To absorbe the Lycopene in tomatoes for your prostate. You need to cook them and concentrate it in a sauce. I think you can handle that. :heart: :thumbup:

"To absorbe the Lycopene in tomatoes for your prostate. You need to cook them and concentrate it in a sauce. I think you can handle that."

Duh! It's called "spaghetti sauce". I make mine from ripe and/or green tomatoes, home grown onions, garlic and peppers. Yum!
