I’m so sorry

I have never understood the allure of yellow tomatoes. They don’t look right (except in a mixed salad of some sort) They certainly don’t taste the same and breakfast, well, it’s just not right. I mean it looks like pineapple fer chrissake.

  1. Did you know that tomatoes do not have to be a deep red color to be an outstanding source of lycopene? Lycopene is a carotenoid pigment that has long been associated with the deep red color of many tomatoes. A small preliminary study on healthy men and women has shown that the lycopene from orange- and tangerine-colored tomatoes may actually be better absorbed than the lycopene from red tomatoes. That's because the lycopene in deep red tomatoes is mostly trans-lycopene, and the lycopene in orange/tangerine tomatoes is mostly tetra-cis-lycopene.

  2. Key words "may actually be." Nonetheless, I don't eat anything for the health benefit, although just the name "tetra-cis-lycopene" makes me salivate.
