Fresh & Flavorful Pico de Gallo

My daughter Kaylee LOVES fresh pico de gallo. She’ll sit with a huge bowl of it and a bag of organic tortilla chips and just inhale it. And because of the health benefits to the fresh salsa, I don’t discourage it. With fresh tomatoes, fresh peppers, and fresh onion, the vitamins and minerals can’t be beat. In running the nutritional analysis of the recipe, this is what I discovered. Fresh Pico de Gallo is has no cholesterol, is low in sodium, very high in dietary fiber, high in manganese, high in magnesium, high in niacin, high in phosphorus, very high in potassium, high in thiamin, very high in vitamin A, very high in vitamin B6, and very high in vitamin C.

It’s also REALLY easy. I make it all summer long straight out of my garden.

What are Antioxidants?

In beginning this regimen, I’ve done quite a bit of research into supplements, vitamins, etc. And a word that I’ve come across several times is the word “antioxidants.” Things that contain antioxidants are apparently good for you. But, why? You may already know this. But since I didn’t and had to learn about it, I thought I’d share with you my newfound knowledge. :-)

Breaking the word down, we get “anti”, which means against, and oxidants. An oxidant is very specifically defined as a chemical agent that oxidizes. Yeah? So?


Creation: Abiogenesis Part IV

While not being very scientific, panspermia is a great example of a “god of the gaps” fallacy and a great example of the religious foolishness Darwinists preach and teach in the name of the secular humanist religion. Perhaps textbooks should come with the following warning, “Abandon all logic ye who enter into Darwinism.”


Creation: Abiogenesis Part III

I explained the Darwinist belief in spontaneous generation packaged for textbooks as abiogenesis, and recently re-packaged and re-branded and re-labeled to be called biopoiesis, until a new and improved authoritatively scientific sounding word replaces that one. It means, in a nutshell, that Darwinists preach about life coming from non-life.


Tip: Baking Soda

Baking soda has SO MANY uses in the kitchen, from cutting down the gas in a pot of beans to helping biscuits rise just so. One of the things that baking soda does really well is absorb odors.
