Please Critique A Diet Staple Of Mine

    This has me questioning a frequently used food staple in my home:
    Canned organic tomato sauce.

    Cons:
    Canned
    Citric acid
    Seeds pulverized in there
    Increases serotonin?
    Is lycopene ok?

    Pros:
    Vitamin C
    It’s cooked fruit
    It is versatile and tasty
    It’s organic

    I don’t believe I have any adverse reactions...
    But maybe I do?
    I don’t know if this is increasing serotonin or histamine...

    I’m simply confused, hence your criticisms, critiques and experiences are appreciated.

    If it makes your food more enjoyable then i say eat it. It's basicly a spice, i wouldn't worry too much about it. It has no PUFA so thats good. It has some sugars and nutrients thats good.

    You're clearly enjoying it as a part of your diet.

    If you're worried then alternate it between a glass bottle passata or tomato paste every now and then, or just mash up some real tomatoes once in a while.

    Use your own logic and reasoning when it comes down to it - common sense will hopefully prevail.

    I cook meat in a tomato based sauce fairly often, and I crave raw tomatoes only when eating pork sausages and/or bacon for some reason. I absolutely love them in those moments, though.

    I'm sure someone could post an article about all the issues with tomatoes but my body actively encourages me to eat them in their natural state at times - I'm going to go with experience over theory.

    Yes.
    I searched the forum and there was a post regarding tomato and thyroid health that challenged me.
    @Dan Wich

    @Dobbler and @sunraiser
    Thx for the encouragement.

    It’s not like I eat the sauce isolated, so doing an elimination experiment wouldn’t conclude reliable conclusions/results.

    75 million italians can't be wrong. they live by the stuff.

    also the citric acid can help bind some of the oxalates in the tomato paste. i have ssues with oxalates and a little lime in water usually will give a big oxalate dump. citric acid is good for that.
