Hi Everybody, Debbie Benson here...
This is where I can tell you about what I know, what I have found out, and here I can also rant a bit.
Since I was a little girl I have been aware of sodium, both high and low levels, as you learned in my first Season-It Newsletter 3 Tips That Help A Low Sodium Diet. Starting Benson's Gourmet Seasonings has been a dream come true.
As I learn and find helpful information, tips, products, recipes, and websites, I will share the information with you here. Then, you can follow-up and do your own research and make your own, more informed decisions regarding your health, or the health of a loved one. Knowledge helps you and gives you the power to make better decisions.
It's not just about what you don't do or can't have. It's also about things you can or should do or add to your diet that can make a difference. Here we go...
In the US, tomatoes are a fruit and a vegetable. Interesting how this came about.Leave a comment...
Tomatoes botanically are a fruit, but, according to law, they are a vegetable. During the 1800's, New York's port taxed imported vegetables, but not fruits. An importer wanting to cut costs, went to court stating tomatoes were fruits. His case went all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled, that produce often served with meats or fish is a vegetable. So, he had to pay a tomato tax and today we think of tomatoes as a vegetable.
