My mom used to always say, “Don’t be concerned with outward appearance—it’s what’s inside that counts.” She was right, and so it goes with last week’s topic, “what’s inside” a pumpkin really counts as well. Pumpkin seeds are such amazing body healers, I had to give you this follow up. Ever had a kidney stone? The pain is right up there with childbirth and will take you to your knees. But studies show that pumpkin seeds prevent calcium oxalate from forming.

For Pablo Neruda, the well-known Chilean poet, food was inspirational. His passion for the taste, texture, color and aroma of good food left us with writings that will make your mouth water. His devotion to food brought him a Nobel Prize and motivated many a shy cook to venture into the kitchen. Neruda loved tomatoes - not just “loved” as in ate them a lot - he loved and adored them down to his soul, and rhapsodized his feelings through magical prose and verse. My favorite line closes his famous poem, “Oda al Tomate”: “The tomato offers its gift of fiery color and cool completeness.” That line makes me want to hold, sniff and squeeze a tomato while I decide how to eat it. Summer-ripened tomatoes are the perfect choice for fresh, beautiful food that packs a nutritious punch.
