Peach Mango Salsa

 

It’s so important to try and boost your nutrition every time you eat. Think about how you can increase the vitamins and minerals in the foods you make and eat every day. By adding a variety of foods to our diets, we’ll cover a lot of our nutrient needs and help our bodies fight of disease.

One way to do this is by incorporating fresh fruits and veggies to our already favorite recipes. I came up with a way to use the fruit that is in season to create even more flavorful, nutrient-dense recipes of some old favorites. This one uses fresh peaches and mangoes to balance out the spice of jalapenos in this summer time favorite.

Read more over on the blog on The Power of Peaches. You’ll see why it’s so important to eat in season and incorporate fresh fruits into the diet.

I made this the other night and we have a ton of leftovers. It’s easy to modify to your taste, too. It’s just a heartier twist on tomato soup with Italian seasonings. Sometimes, to break through boredom with meal-planning, it’s good to mix it up a bit. And, this time of year, I love to have soup leftovers or enough to freeze for a healthy meal on a busy night.

This recipe makes 10-1 Cup Servings and the nutrition breakdown looks like this:

Honey Spice Cookies

Honey spice cookies

 

This cookie recipe is delicious and right in with the flavors of the season! With the clove and allspice, this cookie is reminiscent from fall through the Christmas season. For those who are keeping sugars down (we all should be), I used a combination of turbinado sugar (sugar that is less refined and still contains some molasses) and monk fruit in the raw. Using the less processed version of sugar is better for the flavor and our health! Enjoy!

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

12 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened

1⁄2 cup packed (4 oz.) turbinado sugar (or ¼ Cup turbinado + ¼ C Monk Fruit in the raw)

2 tbsp. honey

1 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground ginger

1⁄2 tsp. ground allspice

1⁄2 tsp. ground cloves

2 cups (9 oz.) all-purpose  gluten free flour, plus more for dusting

1⁄3 cup finely chopped hazelnuts

1 tsp. salt

 

Heat the oven to 375°. Using a hand mixer on medium speed, beat together...
