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.

Menu Monday 31 OCT 2011 – Daniel Fast Week 4

Our church is currently observing 40 days of fasting, and Gregg and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. For the next few weeks, you will see a “vegan extreme” diet. We are consuming only fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and drinking only water – no sugars, honey, syrups, nor eating leavened bread. Kaylee is observing her own form of this fast and will be abstaining from the sugars and the meat – she will be consuming dairy, however. The boys will be eating our meals with us, but will have some meat and will have dairy.

For breakfast, we are making a juice in our juicer out of kale, carrots, apples, and fresh ginger root. Several good juice recipes can be found here. I’ve also been making smoothies out of mango, fresh pineapple, bananas, oatmeal, flax seed, and coconut milk. We drink one or both of them for our breakfast.

For lunches, we will be eating hummus with fresh vegetables, avocado and salsa in Ezekiell 4:9 tortillas (the only tortillas I could find with nothing in them but grains), salads, or something like unsweetened peanut butter and bananas with tortillas.

I pray that by sharing our journey with you, you will receiving a blessing from it.

Exceptional White Chicken Enchiladas

I “stole” this recipe off of Pioneer Woman’s website. When I made it, I used less heat than her, but I have two toddlers to feed and a heat sensitive tween. I personally think the extra peppers and chilies would have made something that was really good just beyond exceptional. The next time I make it, I’m going to use all of the peppers and chilies and use pepper jack cheese, too. So, I’m going to list the ingredients as she listed them, and you can add or remove the peppers and chilies as you need to.

Hallee’s White Chili Recipe

One evening, with company arriving less than three hours from the time that I held four frozen solid pieces of chicken in my hands, I decided that white chili was probably the best route to take. So, I plopped them in the big stock pot, covered them with water and proceeded to make white chili. Though a recipe that I put together on the fly with only the ingredients I had on hand, it really ended up tasting quite good.
