Issac Toussie Asks, Pardon Me But Did Someone Say Tomatoes?

Article by Isaac Toussie

People have said that it is of course important to watch out for food scams, as fraud could exist on food labels. Pardon the thought but today, when so many people are concerned about issues like housing and work place discrimination, fashion, entertainment, real estate, mortgages, vacations and the like, issues like food quality and food awareness may become unnecessarily overshadowed.

Quick: are tomatoes plants or fruits? The answer is that they are both: they are technically fruits, as per botanical taxonomies, though typically enjoyed – and legally sanctioned (more on this soon) – as vegetables. This question isn’t just a cute amusement, but had historically been at the center of tariff disputes, as different taxes were imposed on fruits and vegetables! It actually took an 1893 decision by the United States Supreme Court, no body of botanists that, to determine that tomatoes are actually vegetables. (No word on whether “tomato” is properly pronounced “to-MAY-to” or “to-MAH-to.”) Even more interestingly, scientific research seems to indicate that tomatoes are most nutritious when cooked, though they are often enjoyed raw as a part of salads or sandwiches.

There are many varieties of tomatoes, and though they are closely associated with Italian cuisine, they are actually native to South America. They are members of the nightshade family of vegetables and come in various shades of red, yellow, orange, and even green and brown. While the leaves of the tomato plant are inedible as they contain toxic alkaloids, the fruit of the tomato plant, which we simply call “tomato,” is highly nutritious and available in literally thousands of different varieties. Most tomatoes can be classified according to five categories:

Cherry tomatoes are red, orange, or yellow in color and are bite-sized. These little round tomatoes most often used as garnishes or in salads. They are sometimes called grape tomatoes.

Plum tomatoes are also known as Roma Tomatoes or Italian Tomatoes. They are also small and round, but appear more egg-shaped than cherry or grape tomatoes. They contain less juice than slicing tomatoes, which make plum tomatoes ideal for use in tomato sauces.

Slicing tomatoes are the common tomatoes often used for sandwiches. One kind of slicing tomato is the flat beefsteak tomato easily available in many supermarkets.

Heirloom tomatoes are considered to be those varieties that have been specially bred by several generations of a family. There are hundreds of varieties classified as heirloom tomatoes, though the category has no standard definitions. As these are “specialty tomatoes” in a very real sense, most heirloom tomatoes are available only locally. Heirloom tomatoes are very important for the biodiversity they embody as a class.

Finally, green tomatoes are those unripe tomatoes which have less nutritional value because the phytochemicals which give a tomato its red color have not been developed and concentrated yet.

Issac Toussie Pardon Me But Did Someone Mention Broccoli?

Article by Isaac Toussie

People have said that it is of course important to watch out for food scams, as fraud could exist on food labels. Pardon the thought but today, when so many people are concerned about issues like housing and work place discrimination, fashion, entertainment, real estate, mortgages, vacations and the like, issues like food quality and food awareness may become unnecessarily overshadowed.

Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable that originally came from the Mediterranean region of southern Europe. It dates back to ancient Rome, where it was developed from wild broccoli, plants that resembled collard greens; its name comes from the Latin for “branch,” “brachium.” It is one of the most popular vegetables anywhere, and a staple of most healthy diets in the world, particularly in the United States. It is a “super-food,” as scientific research continues to uncover one nutritional benefit after another. For starters, broccoli contains one of the highest concentrations of health promoting sulfur compounds, such as sulforaphane and isothiocyanates, which increase the liver’s ability to make enzymes that neutralize potentially toxic substances in the body. Broccoli is also rich in the powerful phytonutrient antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that are concentrated in the lens of our eyes. Furthermore, broccoli provides Vitamins A and C, and folic acid for a healthy heart. Dark green broccoli contains more chlorophyll, beta-carotene, and Vitamin C, while purple-prone heads contain more flavanoids.

Being from the cruciferous family of vegetables places broccoli among the likes of cauliflower, kale, collard greens, cabbages, mustard greens, and Brussels Sprouts. Some of the more easily available varieties of broccoli include green broccoli, broccolini, broccoflower, broccoli raab, and broccoli sprouts. Green broccoli, sometimes called sprouting broccoli but also known as Italian Green or Calabrese Broccoli, is the most popular kind of broccoli, and the most commonly found in supermarkets today. It’s named after the famous geographical area of Italy where it’s reputed to have been first grown. It has light green stalks topped with clusters of dark green, often purplish florets. Broccolini is, as its Italian diminutive would suggest, baby broccoli, but it’s actually a cross between green broccoli and kale. This is the best kind of broccoli to serve raw. Broccoflower is a cross between broccoli and cauliflower, and more like cauliflower than broccoli. Broccoli raab is intensely flavorful, with a pleasant slightly bitter taste. It has more leaves and a longer stem than common green broccoli, and though its stem is tender enough and needs no peeling, the bottom last inch or two should be discarded as it is wood-like and tough. Broccoli raab is otherwise similar enough to regular broccoli to serve as a substitute for the latter in most recipes. Finally, broccoli sprouts are just sprouts from broccoli seeds, and have become popular for their high concentrations of healthy phytonutrients.

Issac Toussie On Traveling While Pregnant

Article by Isaac Toussie

Many pregnant women wonder if is safe for them to travel on an airplane. For most women flying is absolutely safe. Still, before you plan any trips, speak to your doctor and make sure he gives you the okay. If you are having a healthy pregnancy your doctor will usually is it is not a problem to fly. For those women who are considered a high risk pregnancy, the doctor may tell them to hold off until after delivery.

While some people think that housing, government, politics, entertainment, mortgages, banking, philosophy, and religion are among the most interesting subjects of intellectual discussion I believe that the care and education we have about our children and the birth and development of our children, may rank even higher. I, Isaac Robert Toussie, believe that children are our future, and if you pardon my expression, I believe they represent the greatest miracle G-d has ever given us.

The safest time to travel would be during your second trimester. It when the risk of miscarriage is dramatically decreased. It is also too early to worry about going into to early labor. Flying in your third trimester is not recommended because of the risk of going into labor early and being far away from your doctor.

Before you get on the plane make sure to eat a healthy meal. You never know if the flight will be delayed or how long it would take to get the meal on the plane. While on the airplane it is important to drink lots of water to ensure that you stay hydrated. It is also good to get up and move. About every half hour to an hour you should stand up and walk around the isles a bit. This helps the circulation in your legs. When you are sitting you can also do some stretches, like wiggle your toes and flex your legs. You can even take off your shoes and get comfortable. You should also make sure that what you’re wearing is loose and comfortable. You do not want to wear anything to tight that may make you uncomfortable.

When traveling by car, you should still do many of the same things. Make sure to stop and the rest-stops at least every hour. You need to walk around for circulation and you will probably need to use the bathroom. It is not good to hold it in so go as soon as you can find a restroom. Make sure to bring lots of snacks and drinks. You can also bring a cushion or a pillow for your seat to make sure it is extra comfortable. I don’t recall the extent of President George Bush’s or President Obama’s campaign focus on children and issues concerning children but future presidents would surely be praised for focusing on children during their campaigns and later during their presidential tenures.

Issac Toussie on Preparing For Labor

Article by Isaac Toussie

There are some exercises you can do to prepare your body for labor. These exercises work on the muscles that will be used the most during delivery and labor. Some of these exercises include kegel exercises, pelvic tilt, tailor sitting, and squatting. Kegel exercises consists of tightening your pelvic floor muscles. These are the muscles around your vagina and anus. You can find these muscles by trying to stop the flow of urine in the middle of going to the bathroom. Once you are able to stop urination that means you have found the right muscles. However, kegel exercises should only be practiced on an empty bladder, otherwise it can lead to urinary tract infections or a weakening of the muscles. This exercise should be done about five times in a row while you tighten your muscles for about five to ten seconds. You can relax for about ten seconds between tries. The pelvic tilt exercise helps to relieve backache which you may experience during labor, by strengthening your abdominal muscles. This exercise can be down by getting on your hands and knees while keeping your head straight in line with your back. Make sure to pull in your abdomen by tilting your hips forward and also try to round your back. Try to hold that position for a few seconds, relax and then repeat. Tailor sitting helps make delivery easier by helping to keep your pelvic joints flexible which increases blood flow to your lower body. It also improves the muscles in your back. You can do this exercise by sitting on the floor with your back straight, bringing the bottom of your feet together so that your heels are facing you and your knees should be drop out to the sides. This will make you feel a stretch in your inner thighs. Squatting is another important exercise. If you are able to do some squats while you are in labor, it may help open your pelvic outlet so that your baby has more room to come down. Practice squatting in the last few months of pregnancy. You do this by standing straight with your feet shoulder width apart. Still keeping your back straight and heels on the floor, lower your body into a squat position. Try to hold this position for about twenty to thirty seconds, relax and repeat a few more times.

While some people think that housing, government, politics, entertainment, mortgages, banking, philosophy, and religion are among the most interesting subjects of intellectual discussion I believe that the care and education we have about our children and the birth and development of our children, may rank even higher. I, Isaac Robert Toussie, believe that children are our future, and if you will pardon my expression, I believe they represent the greatest miracle G-d has ever given us.

Bringing a child into this world is one of the most wonderful feelings you can have. These exercises help to relieve some of the labor pains. Try practicing these exercises in the last two months of pregnancy, and it can help to prepare your body for delivery. I don’t recall the extent of President George Bush’s or President Obama’s campaign focus on children and issues concerning children but future presidents would surely be praised for focusing on children during their campaigns and later during their presidential tenures.
