Broccoli Olive and Corn Salsa Recipe

I'm just mixing up cultures as I see fit. All cuisines, from all over the world, have the human palate in common. They can blend in some amazing ways. 
This has a really fresh and clean flavor. It's light, but filling. Ideal for the end of summer. It just needs a little bread or rice to go with it. 

Make sure when you serve it to coat the bread or rice with some of that scrumptious sauce!
Salsa Recipe Ingredients
2 broccoli crowns, chopped small
1 can small black olives, halved
2/3 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 shallots, diced
1 jalapeno, minced
1 poblano, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tlbs olive oil
1 tbl hot sauce
2 tsps spicy mustard
2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsps dry thyme

Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Let rest overnight. 

The broccoli cooks in the acid and the frozen ingredients thaw without losing their color or flavor.


A Healthy Vegan Diet: Part One

Wondering what vegans eat to stay healthy and well nourished? here's your chance to find out. I shall endeavour to document my eating habits. I've been eating modified vegan for about five months. I do everything vegan except i ocassionaly eat canned albacore tuna, shrimp and wild salmon.

i intend to eliminate these few fish as well at some point. But for now, that is where I'm at. It's still a conscious effort to get all the things my body needs. I don't eat these fish often at all. Less than once a month.

A typical day's eats consists of:

Breakfast
Sandwich made from:
hard roll, bagel or whole wheat toast
beans (black, red, garbanzos or lentils)
vinegar and a few dots of olive oil
veggies (corn, lettuce, pickles, onions, garlic, aspargus, red cabbage)
nutrional yeast
a side of fortified cereal (cheerios, wheat chex, total)

Lunch
pasta salad or rice salad
with various mixes of tomato, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peas and bell peppers.
some beans and or nuts

garlic, vingear, salt, pepper and probably some more nutritonal yeast
maybe some almonds or pretzels or low salt potato chips, or a combination of them

Dinner
whole wheat bread, half whole grain bagel or more cereal
sometimes with smart balance lite spread and some spices.
soy or almond milk
some fruit - banana, cantaloupoe, apple, the like.
an oreo or nabisco oatmeal cookie on occasion.

I will go into greater detail as I document each forthcoming days vegan meals.
