Wellness Tip
Smoking & Body Weight
Many women cite potential weight gain as a reason to avoid quitting smoking. Although smokers tend to weigh less than non-smokers, smoking appears to cause fat to move to the abdominal area. This further increases the risk of heart disease. You can avoid potential weight gain and help your heart by increasing physical activity as you quit smoking.

Recipe
Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes.

Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats).
So this recipes makes a great team.
