Tomatoes are Michigan’s summer fruit and our Fam eats a lot of them!
As new gut health research evolves they’re finding more benefits in plant sources. The fiber in tomatoes promotes the growth of good bacteria and discourages harmful bacteria such as C. difficile, according to Canada’s GI Society. (1) Tomatoes are also an outstanding source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant protecting cells from aging (Hello, nature’s natural anti-aging cream!)
A healthy gut can help you lose weight and much more. If you’re struggling to lose a pound because you are suffering from gut dysbiosis, an imbalance in healthy vs bad gut bacteria, you may want to boost probiotic activity with tomatoes.
Signs of poor gut health include the inability to lose stubborn weight, constipation, and diarrhea.
During the summer months take advantage of tomatoes because they are vibrant in color and bursting with flavor!

Ps: if you can’t find daikon radish swap in regular radish or watermelon radish.
