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.


Obesity

Want to really eliminate obesity from America? There's a very simple solution. Eliminate meat. It's that easy.

If we can tax cigarettes to death because they are supposedly bad for people, then we can do the same with meat. No one is going to buy $15 a pound ground beef.

In a truly free society, as we claim to be, nothing would be taxed to such excess. Regardless of the health risks. Freedom means, free to choose. Free to choose cancer. Free to choose cirrhosis of the liver. Free to choose to be obese.

But we do not live in a free society. America is an autocracy. Governed by the wealthy. By the corporations. By the pharmaceutical industries. And the health care business.

Cigarettes are so highly taxed because they assume we are so addicted that we will pay any price. Not an entirely flawed assumption.

But nevertheless, anyone who believes politicians pass these taxes to benefit the people is a fool.

If our health were their main concern they would heavily tax meat and meat byproducts. But they don't. Because people are not addicted to meat. People can live without meat. Because the meat industry is one of the largest industries in our fragile economy.

Want to really stick it to the health care and pharmaceutical industries? Want to overcome your nagging excess weight? Easy. Stop eating meat. It's that simple. I know, because it happened to me.

Supporting an industry that tortures animals is not a healthy way to eat.
