Fried Green Tomatoes, Grain Free Fried Green TomatoesDr Jockers Comments:

If you like fried green tomatoes than you will definitely love this recipe.  Be sure to always buy your tomatoes organically grown.  This is because they have a thick skin and are often highly sprayed with pesticides and may also be genetically modified in the conventional variety.

This is low-carb as the flours that are used are arrowroot and almond meal.  The more turmeric you can get into your body, the better your health will be!  This recipe is a bit light on turmeric and if you can handle more and still enjoy the flavor than I would highly recommend it.  Black pepper and coconut oil help to improve the absorption of the curcuminoid antioxidants in the turmeric.
