Siempre me he preguntado: si el tomate es ¿una fruta o un vegetal?

Todo depende si usted le está preguntando a un chef o a un científico. Desde el punto de vista de la botánica, las semillas del tomate lo califican como una fruta. Pero, debido a que es usado principalmente para dar sabor a la comida, tal como sus compañeros homólogos la calabaza, los ejotes y el pepino, ampliamente es considerado un vegetal.

Today we kick off the beginning of National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans.
We recognize the roles Hispanic and Latino Americans play in our communities and use this month to observe, honor, and appreciate their achievements and most of all, their rich culture!

Do you love blueberries just as much as we do?💙
We love eating blueberries as a snack, in salads, on yogurt, or blended into popsicles!
Blend fresh blueberries with water or milk, pour into popsicle molds, and place in the freezer. Allow to freeze for at least 3 hours! Enjoy this sweet and healthy treat!
