Tomato blended, sieved and refrigerated. Cheaper than the canned gunk you get at six times the price. It costs me 30 rupees (60 c) to make eight glasses of tomato juice. It costs me 180 rupees ($3.60) to buy it canned. And the homemade stuff kicks its ass. I'm thinking of starting with oranges very soon...

I very much like tomato, so if you say there is not problem getting fat and, moreover, it is healthy, it means I can eat as many as I want. Great!
