Chatting about Lycopene and Health on “Life, Love & Health”
Having grown up on the Mediterranean diet, I love having the opportunity to discuss its many health benefits, as well as how important the foods I love and enjoy are for an overall healthy lifestyle.
I was recently interviewed by Christopher Springmann, host of RadioMD’s “Life, Love & Health” about the health benefits of lycopene and sun dried tomatoes. In addition to talking about Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes as a rich source of lycopene, Christopher and I discussed another ingredient that I believe is the most important element of any diet – olive oil. Together, sun dried tomatoes and olive oil create what I believe is the perfect food, combining their powerful antioxidant properties with the anti-inflammatory power of olive oil.
When you eat better, you're going to feel better, and when you feel better, you're going to have a better life. This is something that I learned growing up in a family that was passionate about bringing people together around food, and it’s a lesson we continue to share at Mooney Farms through the foods we make.
