Quick Corn Salsa

This pantry thing is getting fun…and pretty!

Quick Corn Salsa

Quick Corn Salsa

  • 1 can of sweet corn
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes (I used a variety with garlic and onion)
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of cilantro (dried is fine)
  • dash of garlic

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Store in the refrigerator as that will help the flavors mix.  Use it top salads or as a healthy chip dip.

Tropical Smoothie (because I’m behind schedule)


I always try to schedule my workouts so that I can eat my next meal when I finish working out.  I got busy around the house doing various and sundry things, so now I’m hungry but still haven’t worked out.  I made this to get me through my workout while saving enough calories to have a small lunch when I get finished at the gym.  Here’s what you need:

1/2 banana

1/2 orange

1/2 cup of pineapple

1 cup of almond milk

1 cup of spinach

handful of ice cubes (not necessary if any of your fruit is frozen)


Blend the pineapple, banana, orange, and almond milk until combined.  Add the spinach and the ice cubes. Now try to stay warm!
