It's the time of the year for a good dose of lycopene, one of the most powerful natural antioxidants. Lycopene has been shown to improve the skin's ability to protect against harmful UV rays. With the heat wave we are having, we need all of the protection we can have against the harmful rays.
I love, love sliced tomatoes sprinkled with salt, pepper then chilled. A plate of these beauties goes well with any meal (in my opinion).
South Arkansas grows the best tomatoes you can ask for. I look forward to buying a box to have until my tomatoes are ripe. The green ones in the picture below are mine....not yet ripe. I will enjoy Warren tomatoes in the meantime.
I have been battling vertigo this week.....have you ever had it? Awful! Sunday I didn't move from the bed. Laid very still facing the front, not turning head in the least. Monday I staggered around and finally went to the Dr. I couldn't imagine what was wrong with me. I'm thankful it wasn't anything serious. He gave me some exercises to do to help. Can't believe there are exercises for dizziness.....I don't think they burn many calories but oh well if I can walk straight and turn my head again I'll be happy!!
