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
Five minute de-stressors
People often say they are "stressed" when their normal coping mechanisms have been overwhelmed. If you need to decrease stress and improve coping, consider taking at least one 5 minute, de-stress break each day, preferably more. You can try different 5 minute activities throughout the week. These include stretching, daydreaming, deep breathing, reading a few pages of a novel, doodling, listening to your favorite song, or going for a quick walk. These mini "me" times provide a quick break and allow you a chance to regain emotional and mental control in difficult situations.

Recipe
Lighter Bran Muffins
Category: Desserts
Description: Compared to the buttery, icing-piped white scones and tartlets in the pastry case, the bran muffin always seems like the obvious choice for the hungry healthy-breakfast browser. The bran adds a good bit of fiber and a little protein, too. But most bakery batters are made fluffy with white flour and sweetened with enough sugar to cover four glazed donuts—a 400-plus-calorie breakfast with more than 70g of carbs, most from refined sources like white flour and brown sugar. And the portion size? These muffins are enormous. Our mission: Bring the bran muffin back into balanced territory with 100% whole grains and no refined sugar—but still keep it moist and packed with flavour.
