Dreaming of sand, the ocean and pineapples....
I spent last week in Florida on a family vacation, and definitely got my dose of sunshine and vitamin D. Had quite the week unplugging from work and spent my glorious days golfing, laying by the pool and relaxing. Today, with the super cold weather it had me thinking of sunshine, sand, the beach and pineapples! Delicious right? Although, I don't have the sand and beach today, it's a gorgeous sunny winter day, and let's face it, pineapples can be enjoyed any day, not just on a beach! Who doesn't love a delicious fresh pineapple, even in the winter months? Yum!
Today, I made a delicious and spicy pineapple salsa, to remind me that spring and summer are right around the corner! I used all fresh ingredients from the earth. Foods from the earth mean high vibration, and we could all use some higher vibrational energy and more ingredients from the earth in our diet. I also purposely went for a variety of colour in this recipe- yellow, orange, red and green, adding an array of health benefits.
This Spicy Pineapple Salsa recipe I created has a little kick to it (I am super sensitive to spice! So I find it quite spicy however it may just perfect for you!). If you don't love spice however, just leave the cayenne pepper flakes out or reduce the amount from 1 tsp. to 1/2 tsp. It is perfect to eat simply as it is, as a side salad, with some yummy crackers (Mary's Crackers), or bean chips (Beanitos) or top onto a delicious piece of wild caught ocean fish or organic chicken.
This recipe is loaded with vitamins, minerals, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Although, I tend to recommend leaving fruit out of meals, since it goes away from proper food combining rules for optimal digestion, rules are meant to be broken once in a while, right?
This is such a nice treat combining the sweet taste of pineapple with the fresh herb taste of mint with some delicious veggies. Oh, and did I mention I like EASY recipes! Yep, I am all about what I can whip up in the shortest amount of time without compromising quality, and this recipe here is super simple to prepare, being made in less than 15 minutes.
Would love to hear how you enjoyed this recipe, or some other ways you love to eat pineapple!
To your health and happiness always,
