Fat-Free Fried Green Tomatoes Premium PD Recipe
The end of the summer means threats of frost for most vegetable gardens. Every October, I panicked and picked all the green tomatoes from their vines with the hope they would ripen on the countertop. Now I celebrate the extra protection green tomatoes offer our bodies during the annual frost-warning, ‘pick-everything’ harvest with this recipe. Green tomatoes expand our protection with plant diversity and cancer-protective tomatine found in green tomatoes. This phytochemical protects the unripe tomato and its plant with fungicidal and antimicrobial protection. When consumed, we receive the phytochemical benefits in the form of anti-cancer cellular protection. After tasting these crunchy, well-seasoned, dippable delicacies and learning about protective plant chemicals, you may want to pick next summer’s tomatoes green. Protective Diet recipes are designed as weekly educational bites to achieve and maintain optimal health with a sustainable diet incorporating plant-based functional foods based on advances in phytochemical research.
