Dear All Gold
Tomato sauce is extremely healthy! It contains plenty of a nutrient called lycopene which protects us against a variety of degenerative diseases including cancer. You may have developed a liking for sour foods due to some hormonal changes (are you taking any hormones and/or medications?), or just happen to like these foods. There is no harm in eating gherkins, beetroot is also extremely healthy as it contains another phytonutrient that protects against cancer and cooked or canned beans are rich in plant protein, minerals, and dietary fibre.
