Easy Mango Salsa

I love unique salsa…but who has time to make it from scratch? That’s why this recipe is so easy. With very little effort, you can create a salsa that no one will know started with your favorite prepared tomato salsa. Enjoy this summer twist on the most popular topping or dip.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups

You will need:

3/4 cup prepared tomato salsa
1 large ripe mango, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

In a small bowl, combine salsa, mango, lime juice and cilantro.

Don’t stop limit yourself to chips and dip with this recipe. Try it with veggies, mix it in scrambled eggs, or serve it on top of grilled chicken or white fish. Yum!

Meditation - Your Mental Exercise

What is Meditation?

Well meditation is a form of mental exercise in which a person will focus there attention on a sound, a chanted word, an object, a visualization or there own breath or movement (such as in Tai Chi and yoga ). This is done in order to reduce stress, improve concentration, promote relaxation and enhance your own personal and spiritual growth.

Types of Meditation

There is another common form of meditation called mindfulness meditation. In this style of meditation you are meant to be aware of ALL thoughts, feelings, sensations and the environment around you (the opposite of narrowing your focus like most meditations do). The practice of this style goes better for people who are already proficient at quieting the mind. There are also several other types of meditation which I will cover in depth in future articles.

Here are some other types of meditation for you to look into... More coming soon.

1. Self Hypnosis
2. Hindu Meditation


Your mind controls your body, and it is time you gain control of your mind.
