When trying to save money costs you more😅!
"Money saved buying 'Esha' (rotten) tomatoes will be used in treating different aliments." No be me talk am, na USAID. -------- This bill board caught my attention at Mile 12 Market some time ago and I still recall whenever I see what most 'Mama Put'(local food vendors) concoct as stew.
------- Esha, as broken tomatoes are popularly called, are the bruised, broken and probably deteriorating tomatoes compressed under the tomato baskets.
------ Some people prefer buying broken tomatoes because they're cheaper, but little do they know that they're denying their bodies important nutrients like vitamins and minerals needed for growth and development. ------ Well, you may be able to compensate for the lost nutrients by taking much fruits.------ The scary part, however, is that when the outer walls of these lycopene-filled veggies get to break and begin to deteriorate, they're exposed to fungi, parasites and bacteria, especially E. coli. ------ In mild cases, you could have diarrhea and stomach cramps resulting from the consumption of such food, especially when not properly cooked. ------- However, it could also result in life-threatening cases of food poisoning, according to the UK National Health Service. ------- What to do?
Well, don't just look at the cost, give priority to your health. Buy healthy and solid tomatoes filled with lots of health benefits.
--------- For your foodstuffs and veggies? Let's talk😉
