TOMATOES...TOMATOES...TOMATOES...



Kaylee loves tomatoes... we went to our usual thurs nite taco place- (75 cent tacos and $1 beer) and she had her taco with tomatoes and then 2 side orders of diced tomatoes with it--when i buy the little cherry tomatoes, she'll sit and eat the whole basket at once. or just sliced up tomaotes with a dash of salt...i'm the only other one in our housethat even eats tomatoes...i wondered if two many tomatoes could be bad for her, but i haven't read anything but good stuff about these so called:

"Nutritional Superstars"

Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A. They also contain fiber, potassium and iron. Tomatoes are full of health-promoting antioxidants like lycopene, which gives them their red color, and beta-carotene.

i hate raw tomatoes, but i will eat them in things. i think the only thing you have to watch out for is tummy upset. tomatoes are very acidic, so too many might mean pepto bismol. but, WOW! 75 cent tacos and $1 beer?!! how could you NOT go? :)

I agree with jodee they just have alot of acid in them.But I dont think they could hurt her.
