Oh So Good Salsa 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This eay to make Salsa is a raw food recipe. Tomato salsa, if prepared using fresh ingredients, has several health benefits. Tomatoes contain large amounts of vitamin C and beta carotene. Because of the fresh ingredients, you can include tomato salsa as one of your suggested four vegetable servings per day. Just 1/4 cup of fresh tomato salsa counts as a single serving.

Ingredients:
-3/4 cup sweet onion
-1 cup fresh cilantro
-3 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
-3 tbsp raisins
-1 tbsp olive oil
-6 garlic cloves
-1 ½ tsp sea salt
-1/2 tsp cayenne (or 1 tsp finely chopped jalapeno)
-4 cups tomatoes
-1 cup red or yellow peppers


Directions:
You can either finely chop all ingredients by hand for a coarser texture or simply put all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until desired texture is achieved. Be careful not to over process this mixture as you will be drinking your salsa…lol

Now you simply can’t have Salsa without the crackers/chips to dip into it. A match made in heaven (in my mind anyway) see the Raw Corn Chip recipe.

Wellness Tip
Nut Nutrition
Nuts are a good source of protein, fiber, and beneficial fats. Almonds, walnuts, peanuts, and peanut butter are rich sources of heart healthy monounsaturated fats which lower LDL (bad) cholesterol when substituted for saturated fat. Walnuts also contain omega 3 fatty acids which help prevent inflammation, reduce blood clot formation, lower triglycerides. Nuts are a calorie dense food so keep portion size is mind. Consider sprinkling nuts on salads, adding them to whole grain side dishes, or using as a topping for a yogurt/fruit parfait.

Archangel Michael's Leyline and Sacred Sites in Ireland
The Saint Michael Leyline is largely intact because of the work of the Druids. This Leyline runs across Ireland for several hundred miles, intersecting with various sacred sites that have been dedicated to Saint Michael. One of the original amplification points of this ley is a 230 metre rock, called Skellig Michael, which stands in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Ireland. For 600 years since the seventh century AD, it was a centre of monastic life for Christian monks who lived in a monastery that still exists...
