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
Tips to Lower Sodium Intake
Have you been advised to limit your sodium intake? If so, try to eat a variety of raw, dried and frozen vegetables. Most of them are naturally low in sodium. Canned vegetables generally contain a significant amount of added salt unless the label states that it is low in sodium. Look for descriptions such as "no salt added" and "reduced sodium" on the Nutrition Facts labels when buying canned vegetables.

Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: Holiday Dinner all rolled into one.
There are about 32g of protein in a 4-oz. serving of turkey, making it a very good source of these essential amino acids. Just one serving of turkey provides 65 percent of your recommended daily intake of protein.
Protect Yourself From Cancer. A little-known health benefit of turkey is that it contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention. Turkey contains selenium, which is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid and immune system. Selenium also has an essential role to play in your antioxidant defense system, helping to eliminate cancer-friendly free radicals in the body. Get Your B Vitamins. Turkey is considered a good source of vitamins B3 and B6, rated because of the density of these vitamins in the meat. A serving of turkey meat has 36 percent of the daily allowance of B3 and 27 percent of your recommended intake of B6. Benefit From Less Saturated Fat. Saturated fat is necessary for biological functions, hormone production, padding for organs and energy. While saturated fat is necessary for a healthy body, most moderately-active people need to avoid overindulging. Turkey has under 12 percent of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat per 4-oz. serving.
Choose Organic, Pasture-Based Turkey
Grass-fed turkey raised under organic conditions convey the most health benefits. Grass-fed turkeys offer higher nutrition and are superior to birds given antibiotics or raised without access to natural pasture. Consider looking for a local, grass-based poultry farm when shopping for organic turkeys.
