Lovely farmer’s market green tomato tree is still around, despite being out of season! But I was there on another mission… Friends and family remain shocked by my (seemingly) encyclopedic knowledge of the healing powers of foods.

Having eliminated wheat, gluten, dairy, all grains, all sugar but fruit, I’m a little stumped by what’s going on.

I really hate throwing out food; don’t you?
