Dear Todd,

You are absolutely correct in thinking that the surest way to lose weight and eat healthier is to include more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Eating them raw, blanched, or steamed is a great way to stave off hunger during this crucial part of your adjustment period.

Frying the crap out of them in peanut oil, however, is not one of the American Heart Association’s recommended preparation methods.

You are trying to lose weight, right?

As ever,


Todd weighs in:  Green tomatoes, aside from being impossible to find in July in Phoenix, are also nearly impossible to eat raw. And I’ve just finished reading Fried Green Tomatoes by Fannie Flagg, so shoot me if I wanted to see what the fuss was about (it’s about a really tasty treat, particularly when paired with homemade green goddess dressing). I only had five small slices with a club soda, and made up for it by having a really minuscule dinner of chicken and pasta served on a bread plate.

I’m no nutritionist, but I’m pretty sure this is not a tried and true diet regime.
