One of the most delicious parts of summer is the abundance of heirloom tomatoes that are available at that time of year.
If you've never had an heirloom tomato, you're in for a real treat. These nutrient-rich tomatoes have a wonderful sweet and salty flavor, and make an excellent addition to any meal or snack. In today's recipe I share a beautifully simple way to enjoy them that lets their flavor shine.
Rich in nutrients
Heirloom tomatoes are are rich in vitamins C, K, A, and B-complex, as well as potassium, chromium, biotin, and beta carotene. This amazing array of nutrition makes heirloom tomatoes excellent for helping to nourish the adrenal glands, reduce stress damage, build the immune system, lower blood pressure, protect against skin damage, improve cardiovascular health, and strengthen bones.
Help prevent cancer
Heirloom tomatoes are also an excellent source of lycopene, a super-antioxidant, which is known to help prevent breast, pancreatic, intestinal, bladder, cervical, colorectal, lung, skin, endometrial, and prostate cancers.
Heirloom tomatoes are also known to aid in the digestion of dense proteins, assist in dissolving gallstones, and purify the blood making them highly beneficial for your digestive tract and lymphatic system.
During the summer, heirloom tomatoes can be found abundantly at your local farmers markets, some grocery stores, or grown in your garden. Have fun tasting all the different varieties and enjoying each unique and delicious flavor profile.
The basil in this dish not only adds a burst of flavor that pairs wonderfully with the heirloom tomatoes, but it offers its unique health benefits as well. The magnesium found in basil can help reduce the chance of experiencing irregular heart rhythms and spasms, making this herb a great option for helping support cardiovascular health. The magnesium also works to relax muscles and blood vessels. If you are suffering from a bacterial or viral-related health issue, the powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties of basil can provide fantastic assistance. If you are suffering from mono, shingles, or intestinal parasites, try regularly incorporating basil into your meals.

Some people avoid bananas because of their sugar content, but the sugar found in ripe bananas actually offers a number of benefits.

Bring in this antiviral food whenever you get the chance. It can help support those fighting numerous conditions and symptoms including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), shingles, and Epstein-Barr.
The strawberry could be described as a superfood thanks to all the amazing benefits it can offer you physically, emotionally, and spiritually. If you suffer from age-related macular degeneration or other vision issues, regularly incorporating strawberries into your diet could be helpful. Looking to improve your cardiovascular health, lower your cholesterol, or stave off heart disease or strokes? The ellagic acid and flavonoids found in these sweet, red berries can help! Strawberries, like certain other berries, aid in preventing organ damage that can result from an overabundance of adrenaline in the system. Unseen compounds found in these berries assist this. In this fast-paced, technological age we live in, many people regularly face elevated adrenaline levels, and berries are a perfect way to begin supporting this all too common issue.
You can make this recipe with orange juice or pineapple juice, or you can use a mix of both. Whether it’s driving back a virus, working to make toxic heavy metals inactive, or helping shield the body from the harmful effects of radiation, the glutathione, flavonoids, and limonoids found in oranges can help. Oranges, once recognized as miracle fruits deserve to return to that place of esteem and be rightfully celebrated for the treasure trove of health benefits they offer. Freshly made juice will always contain the highest amount of nutrients, but bottled juice can be used if needed. In combination with the incredible amount of nutrients and healing properties in bananas and strawberries, this is a winning recipe for your health.
