Chilled Thai Melon ~ Raw Soup 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Following is an example of eating a chilled raw soup, which will actually create some substantial heat inside your body…made possible by the addition of hot chile sauces.

Honeydew melons have similar nutritional benefits of summer and winter squash. Honeydew melons are low in calories and high in their water content. They provide an excellent source of vitamin C and are also a very good source of potassium, copper, and B vitamins (including thiamine, niacin, B6, and pantothenic acid).

Due to their high water content and combination with potassium, honeydew melons are helpful in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. They also provide several key nutrients that are particularly beneficial for healthy skin.


Ingredients:
2 – cups seeded and diced cantaloupe
2 – cups seeded and diced honeydew melon
2 – cups seeded and diced watermelon
1 – tbls Sriracha hot chili sauce (adjusted according to your personal “heat” preference)
1 – tbls. Sweet chile sauce
1 – cup unsweetened coconut milk
3 – limes (juiced)
1 – tbls. Minced ginger
2 – tbls. Chopped fresh cilantro
1 – tbls. Chopped fresh basil
3 – tbls. Chopped fresh mint
1 – tbls. Chopped raw peanuts








Directions:
In a food processor blender, puree the melons, sriracha and sweet chile sauces, coconut milk, lime juice, ginger, cilantro, basil and 2 tbls. of the mint. Strain and chill. Garnish with the remaining mint and the chopped peanuts.


Notes: This is seriously yummy!

Home Safety
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that U.S. hospital emergency rooms treat 8,000 to 10,000 people each year for injuries related to furniture that tips over. Children receive the majority of these injuries. Keep your family safe. Make sure that heavy televisions are close to the floor or set far back into the furniture on which they sit. Use braces or anchors to secure furniture to walls. Keep watch for climbing children.

Recipe
Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes.

Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats).
So this recipes makes a great team.
