greenappguac

This could not be a healthier salsa. And the green apple and avocado go wonderfully together! Who would have guessed?

Recipe:

  • 1 avocado, diced in blocks
  • 1 green apple, diced
  • 1/4 white onion, diced
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 limes, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cut and dice all the ingredients and mix them together in a bowl.

Green Apples: Filled with fiber, Vitamin C, and various antioxidants. According to Health Does, the vitamins in Green Apples help keep your teeth cleaner and whiter.

Avocados: Contain fiber, folic acid, potassium, Vitamin E, and B vitamins. One of the most healthy fruits you can eat! (Yes, it’s a fruit!) According to Mercola, Avocados have twice the amount of Potassium as a banana! Eating one avocado a day could not be healthier for your body.

Jalapeño Pepper: Incredibly high in Vitamin C and Vitamin A. One 2-4 inch pepper only contains about 4 calories!

Onion: Filled with Vitamins including Vitamin C and B vitamins. Contains fiber, calcium, and folic acid.

The one ingredient that is not healthy in this recipe is salt. So if you want to go even healthier, cut it out. Especially if you’re working to strengthen your bones, avoid salt. In her article “The New Superfoods,” Nancy Kalish writes, “Salt. Excess sodium increases the amount of calcium excreted in your urine. Over time, this could lead to significant bone loss, say British researchers.” Stay away from eating too much sodium if you want to keep strong and healthy bones.
