Beneficial Lazy Dog Pup-PIE Toppings!
Hi it's Stu again.
I wanted to tell everyone about the whisker wowin' benefits of the freeze dried Roma Tomatoes on top of our Deep Dish Pizza Pup-PIE! The only thing I love more than bananas is tomatoes, I prefer the santa sweet grape variety. They are like my planet dog ball but smaller and juicier!!
There are many reasons why the tomato is a healthy vegetable. But the main attribute is that they contain carotenoids, a family of pigments found in yellow, orange, and red vegetables and in green leafy vegetables. There are over six hundred carotenoids, but the predominant one in tomatoes is lycopene, a pigment that gives tomatoes their red color. The body cannot manufacture Lycopene or other carotenoids. Some studies have offered evidence that foods rich in antioxidants and carotenoids may play a role in preventing certain types of cancer
Now you must be starting to realize that behind all this gorgeous scruff lies a very intelligent dog! Now onto a another pressing issue......I'm off to find a tomato!!!!
Until next time,
