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.


Vitamin D Cured My Dandruff

So I learned something new and interesting recently. Apparently a vitamin D deficiency can cause dandruff.

I got a bad case of dandruff last year and had no clue why. I tried different shampoos and conditioners. Vinegar helped, but only a little. Extra brushing also had some mildly positive effects.

Side note: I totally endorse vinegar as the best hair conditioner. No more frizz and no more oily build up. Just happy, shiny hair.

Anyway, was totally lost as to the cause of the flakeage.

I never did figure it out. I just resigned myself to the circumstances.

Then quite by accident I found the cure. I started having cereal with almond milk again. Just cause I was craving the sweet crunch.

Almost immediately my dandruff was gone. Since vitamin D is so hard to come by, I'm guessing that was the culprit.

And thinking back now, to other outbreaks I can see the connection between lack of vitamin D and flake attacks.

In short, the cure for dandruff is almond milk or soy milk or upping your vitamin D intake in some significant way. That's what worked for me.
