Stuffed Tomatoes with Goat Cheese 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a great recipe to try when the tomatoes and herbs are ready for harvest.

There are many advantages to goat cheese. Since one member of my family is lactose intolerant, we embraced this easy to digest cheese for its flavor. And now that I am also concerned about fat content and calories, I have learned that goat cheese is the healthy choice both those reasons.
When compared to cow milk products like cream cheese, goat cheese is lower in fat, calories and cholesterol. It also provides more calcium and fewer carbohydrates than cream cheese. Even though goat cheese has less calories, it has a full, rich and creamy flavor.


Ingredients:
* 2 tbsp olive oil
* 2 tbsp each of fresh basil,
oregano, parsley, chives; chopped
* 1 cup goat’s cheese
* 4 tomatoes
* salt to taste.


Directions:
Using a sharp knife remove the stems from the tomatoes, approx. 2” wide by 1” deep.

Roughly chop the fresh herbs and mix with goat’s cheese.

Divide the cheese mixture equally among the tomatoes and stuff.

Prepare the BBQ to medium high heat. Place the tomatoes
on the grill; cover BBQ with lid.

Cook until soft, about 7-10 minutes.


Notes: Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and A. They also contain a cartenoids lutein and lycopene. Lutein is important for eye health and lycopene is best known as an antioxidant that helps protect DNA and cells from oxidation. This is a good recipe for anyone with blood sugar issues due to its' combination of protein and complex carbs which slows the absorption of sugars.

Wellness Tip
Pets and Your Health
Do you own a dog or a cat? Some studies show that pet owners tend to have lower blood pressure, reduced stress levels and lower cholesterol readings than those without pets, regardless of other factors like smoking and diet. If you don't have a pet, but think you might just want one, consider "borrowing" one by volunteering to walk a neighbour's dog or by pet-sitting. These may be good ways to see if owning a pet is right for you and for your health.

Recipe
Vegetarian Coconut Chili
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: This chili has just a hint of coconut to add a tasty twist. If you want a stronger coconut flavour simply replace the vegetable stock with coconut milk.
For much of the last few decades, coconut oil got a bad rap in mainstream media. Critics said it was high in cholesterol and fat, and so many people did not include in in their daily diets. But island populations around the world have celebrated the coconut for centuries for its health benefits, using the meat juice, milk and oil the fruit provides in everything from cooking to disease prevention. Modern medicine is now jumping on the bandwagon and releasing its own findings on the health benefits of coconut.
