Veggie Portion
When I don't have veggies in the house, I replace my veggie portion with a tomatoe or 2 small tomatoes.

Does anyone have an opinion on this? Is it acceptable?

It is ok but it as always advisable to balance out all things. I think one or two meals with this tomato substitute is fine but in the long run it is always better to have reds, green and orange/yellow colours on your plate.

Keep well,
