After eating tomatoes or salsa, I very small pieces in my stool.

Resolved Question:

After eating tomatoes or salsa, I very small pieces in my stool. They worried me at first, and being a hypochondriac I examined it closer. I can actually pick it out of the stool. Small light red just like tomato or onion? Do these things come out in stool this way?

Yes, it is normal to have raw vegetable pieces such as tomato to appear in the stools. I would not worry about this.
