Some people consider tomato as a vegetable but the real thing is, its a fruit.
Providing tomatoes are vine-ripened, they are a high source of vitamin C; in fact, one tomato is equal to more than 50% of the recommended daily allowance. Good source for organic sodium phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, malice and oxalic acid, and sulfur.
The problem is that most tomatoes found in the supermarkets during the off-season have the quality, taste and vitamin C content of a baseball . Vine-ripened tomatoes may cost you a little more because of the difficulty in shipping, but it is well worth the money in nutritional value.
Tomato juice has a wonderful taste that is quite different from store-bought juice, which is boiled and stored in cans for months. The health-giving acids in tomatoes are beneficial to the body unless heated or canned.
Picking Your Tomatoes
Look for bright red, soft, sweet-smelling tomatoes. They ought to be plump, heavy and filled with juice. Always buy from your local farmer, when in season. Do not juice green tomatoes as they may irritate the kidneys and it taste a little sour.
Peppers come in many different colors. The most common is the green pepper which is an unripe red pepper. Red peppers are more expensive but sweeter and higher in vitamin C. Great for the skin and swelling due to arthritis because of the high silicon content. They are an excellent addition to any vegetable juice.
Juice seeds, stem and all. Look for smooth, firm, non-waxed peppers. Keep it refrigerated for one week.
