But it may get boring to have simply chopped tomatoes each time! Try this recipe of scooped tomato halves stuffed with carrots, onions and coconut to get an attractive, colourful yummy snack option. It's a simple and quick to do recipe and requires easily available ingredients.

Put on your thinking caps and you could plate it as an attractive looking salad to tempt your kids.

  • Round Tomatoes: 2 medium sized
  • Carrot: 1 peeled and grated
  • Onion or spring onion: ½ (finely chopped)
  • Coconut: ¼ grated
  • Coriander: 6-7 leaves chopped
  • Sesame (til), black/white: 1 tbsp (roasted)
  • Rock Salt: to taste
  • Lemon Juice for taste
  • Green chillies: if desired
  • Honey: 1 tsp (or more, optional)
  • Take tomato halves and scoop out the inside with a spoon. Keep the pulpy remains aside.
  • Mix the grated carrot and coconut along with the rest of the ingredients including the tomato pulp for the stuffing-adjusting the lemon or salt for taste.
  • If you wish to perk it up, add finely chopped green chillies, or if you want to sweeten, drizzle some honey.
  • Use your hands to mix the stuffing well to release all the oils and flavors.
  • With a tablespoon, fill this carrot mix into four scooped tomatoes till almost full.
  • Lay them on a bed of grated carrots or your stuffing, as you will surely have more left from the above measures!
  • Serve at room temperature.

Wellcure Tip:Like cucumbers, tomatoes have 94% moisture content which is sufficient to quench and cleanse our body. Use them liberally and have no anxiety regarding stones-they help instead to dissolve kidney/gall stones-not- acidity-for they are alkaline in the body. Grow them-they are quick growing, bearing fruit in 40-50 days.

Eating guide:

  • Food group: Vegetables (raw)
  • Raw veggies are great addition to meal times whether you are battling to lose weight or wanting to reverse an illness. Tomatoes are particularly high in moisture content. So add on generously!
