Blue Zone Rally all about the possibilities for Chisago Lakes
Chisago Lakes residents came out in droves September 14 for a Blue Zone Rally.  A blue zone is a concept used to identify a demographic geographic area of the world where people live measurably longer lives.  Approximately 400-450 residents showed up to hear Tony Buettner detail the history of Blue Zones and how they have implemented  it in certain cities in the United States.  Buettner described how his brothers and he took bike rides across the continents of North America, South America, Africa and Europe.  On those trips, the group noticed just how odd it was in certain areas where groups of people were living eight to 12 years longer than the norm.

More tomato recipes to share
I know I wrote about tomatoes a couple of weeks ago but I have more tomato recipes that I thought you might like to try. As I previously said, “Tomatoes are very good for you.” What makes them so good? Well, a medium tomato only has about 30 calories. They provide 40 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C and a good source of potassium and iron. They are naturally low in sodium and have no fat or cholesterol in them. Tomatoes are especially good for you when eaten fresh. Pop the little cherry or grape tomatoes in your mouth for a nutritious snack. You will probably have to eat 10 or more to equal a medium tomato.
Some suggestions for using seasonings for this nutritional food.
