Tomato in stool ?

I had Mexican food  ( Nachos with no meat) with tomatoes on Sunday, a huge Zaxby's  salad with tomatoes on Monday and pasta with Hunt's Traditional canned tomato sauce on Tuesday.  I've been a bit constipated so last night I ate raisins and later ate Rosemary and Olive Oil Triskets to 'clean me out'.  The first of many bm's today left something that looked like tomato skin on the toilet paper. I rubbed the paper together and it didn't smear like blood, just rolled up.   All other bm's have been a normal golden brown color (some have been a little loose).

I've had 3 molars pulled and have trouble chewing my food well.

I had an all clear colonoscopy late December.  Should I be concerned? I'm a HORRIBLE hypochondriac.

I'm not an expert at all, but do think that food can take days to pass through similar to corn .. can take 3-4 days to show up.  If you aren't sure, do see your doctor but I'm thinking it was tomato by your description, etc.
