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.Pin It
What are your thoughts on dairy and meat? I am so confused about it all, there is so much conflicting info out there.
As much as I wish otherwise, there isn’t a simple answer to this question.Pin It
Last Monday, Gregg and I finished our 40-day Daniel Fast. For 40 days, we ate nothing but whole food fruits, vegetables, and some whole grains. To drink, we only had water.
We have good friends who come to our weekly small group in our home every Sunday night, and we had joked about missing chocolate and coffee more than anything.
I’d never made Ratatouille before, but my friend Jen (who has posted recipes here for me before) often does and I know her family likes it. As I was preparing the vegan menu last week for our Daniel Fast, Ratatouille came to mind and I decided to give it a go. This was an amazing recipe. The flavors are so fresh. There’s something specific about the layering of the veggies and the order in which you layer them that makes the dish so good. We served it over brown rice, but you could serve it alone, over pasta, over bread – anything, really.Pin It
I love finding a recipe that will be my new go-to recipe for entertaining. We had company for dinner, and since we’re observing a Daniel Fast, this was our main course using acorn squash. The next evening, we served a soup and had this as a side using pumpkins. The rice is amazing alone, but pared with the winter squash, it is remarkable. This would be beautiful gracing any holiday table.Pin It
