Love & Zest Founder and Dietitian Kristina Larue Showcases Village Farms' Lorabella Blossom
- by Brian LaForce
NEW ORLEANS, LA - Browsing the showfloor at this year’s PMA Fresh Summit conference, I noticed that ‘versatile’ was a big focus for many high-traffic booths. And one of the more versatile items being showcased was Village Farms’ Lorabella Blossom™, because who thinks of tomatoes as a breakfast item?
Kristina Larue, Sports Dietitian and Founder of Love & Zest healthy-living blog, partnered with Village Farms to do just that.
“I love working with the Lorabella Blossom tomato because it has citrusy notes and it pairs well with the ricotta cheese, the sweetness of the raisins, with a little bit of a crunch we added some pumpkin seeds, a drizzle of honey, and a little bit of freshly-cracked pepper to this recipe,” she shared on the floor as she made me a slice of savory toast.
She explained that the team was celebrating the variety and all its unique qualities, not the least of which was the fact that you could have your tomatoes even with breakfast as we keep looking for even more ways consumers can eat their fresh fruits and vegetables.
