Simple Tomato Juice

28 Jul

My friends and I were chatting the other day about how we all had a specific drink we always drink when traveling on an airplane, and really no where else.  For example, one of them always drinks Ginger Ale on the plane.  For me, I almost always get Tomato Juice!  I got to thinking… why only on the plane?  Tomatoes are ridiculously good for you – packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, folic acid, and antioxidants.  So today, I made my own!  At home… with fresh tomatoes.  Beat that, airplane tomato juice!
