WELLNESS WEDNESDAYS: Summertime Tomatoes

"I am a farmer.  I will always be a farmer.  When I die, I'll be a farmer.  It's something I've wanted to do since I was 8 years old. I can tell you also that I see opportunity slipping away for our kids."

                                                                        --Jon Tester, US Senator from Montana

My Saturday forays to the local farmers market are the highlight of my food adventures.  Heirloom tomatoes are a beautiful, delicious food that make meal planning so easy.  Weekly meals at the house are planned around what local farmers are harvesting.  The nutritional value of foods picked a day ago is so much higher than foods picked a week or two ago and trucked across the country.  The flavor of locally grown organic foods exceeds foods grown on monoculture megafarms.

Support local farmers!  Enjoy summertime tomatoes! 

My Saturday breakfast:  beautiful Focaccio bread (from the new Leaven Bakery in New Albany, IN) with hummus and locally grown tomatoes (from the New Albany Farmers Market).
