I’m lovin’ them.
With a lotta fresh n’ chunky tomato sauce.
And it only takes a few mere minutes to prepare.
It’s perfect for my pre-dinner appetizer.
What do you think?
I think it’s perfect.
Perfect for me and my clean eating.
Now that my stomach is starting to heal and I am starting to feel better, I’m keeping my meals simple and fresh.
I’ve realized packaged, processed foods bother me. Now I’m not just talking about cereal n’ cookies but what I’m trying to get at here is that I’ve been staying away from jarred salsas and prepared condiments and such …
Suprisingly, I seem to feel a heck of a lot better.
Now, I’ve never been one for processed, packaged foods but every now and then I’d have some Dijon or Trader Joe’s salsa, but I’m finding that my body is not likin’ sulfates and anything that is pre-packaged…even if it’s healthy.
Interesting, isn’t it?
I seem to feel better.
Less belly pains.
As I’ve always done.
But now, just a bit cleaner without the addition of packaged condiments
Instead, a spritz of lime juice, some fresh cilantro, sage, parsley, basil, tomatoes, bell peppers…
You get my drift?
Keepin’ it simple n’ naturally sweet.
And I’m feeling good about myself and my food.
I can sum it up in one word: Luscious. The word just sounds good, doesn’t it?
This is the perfect side dish or appetizer for a summer’s eve.
