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
Improving your Golf Game
Want to improve your golf game? Limit alcohol and caffeine. These substances can negatively affect your play. Alcohol reduces coordination. Caffeine can over-stimulate you when you need calm. For example, can you picture sinking a tricky putt when you have the caffeine jitters? Drink plenty of water instead. Stay well hydrated and delay premature fatigue.

Recipe
Curried Quinoa Lentil Salad
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: This is a great lunch or dinner side dish, full of protein and vegetables. Lentils are loaded with fiber, folate, iron, protein, and other vitamins and minerals, lentils are a nutritional fountain of youth. Researchers who studied the elderly found that eating these earthy-tasting seeds (and other legumes) is the single most important dietary factor in longevity. When it comes to fiber, a mere half cup of lentils provides around a third of your daily requirements. Whether you purchase lentils prepackaged or in bulk, look for those that appear largely unbroken (bags with broken lentils appear "dusty") and when you get home, don't mix newly purchased lentils with older ones; the older they are, the longer they take to cook. Keep them stored in a cool, dry place, and they will stay fresh for several months.
