tomatoes are evil

​​Sauron of Mordor. Darth Vader. Satan. Heard of 'em? Thought so. Well prepare yourself for a new entity to be enshrined in that pantheon of malevolence. That's right, Tomato, the jig is up! Finally, someone is courageous enough to shine a light on your sinister history; finally, someone has the guts to publish recipes and sauces free of your crimson tang. And you out there...yeah, you. Don't believe it? Maybe you can't handle the truth. Listen and learn; this ain't just fun and games no more. We quote: "Do NOT allow this abomination into your food, your fridges or your lives." And remember, if you're not against tomatoes, you're with them. You've been warned.

Need milk? Study says no

A new medical review suggests there is little evidence that current calcium recommendations help protect bones in children. Instead, experts recommend both exercise and calcium-rich foods.

Children who drink more milk do not necessarily develop healthier bones, researchers said Monday in a report that stresses exercise and modest consumption of calcium-rich foods such as tofu.

Other ways to obtain the absorbable calcium found in one cup of cow’s milk include a cup of fortified orange juice, a cup of cooked kale or turnip greens, two packages of instant oats, two-thirds cup of tofu, or 1-2/3 cups of broccoli, the report said.

Yum Ice cream

Ice cream flavors are not what they used to be. A few years ago, in Nice France, I experienced tasting lavender, and violet flavored ice cream, the wonderful flavors just blew me away. Later on in San Francisco, I found a wonderful Indian ice cream parlor, and fell in love with the cardamom, and rose flavors. When my travels take me back to Japan, I think I will try to avoid some of these incredibly strange ice cream flavors.
