Recipe #1 :: Slow Cook Ratatouille

The Del Mar farmers market is crowded with glowing tomatoes and zucchini.

Health Note: As an excellent source of the strong antioxidant vitamin C and other antioxidants, tomatoes can help combat the formation of free radicals known to cause cancer. Prostate Cancer: Lycopene has been linked with prostate cancer prevention in several studies
