After nearly 18 months since severe back pain (from a herniated disk and two slipped disks) caused me to stop CrossFitting and running, and other life circumstances getting in the way of regular exercise and healthy eating in general ever since, I’ve gained a solid 30 lbs and I’ve had a number of false starts when it comes to eating right and losing weight. I’m off to another start now, hoping to kick-start my inner healthy again, and I made this salsa tonight as part of the new plan. Thankfully, it’s delicious!

Ingredients:
1 handful fresh cilantro, diced
1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped
4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
½-in slice of fresh jalepeno, finely chopped (optional)
30-oz can of diced tomatoes (fire roasted if desired)
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp chili powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 lemon (juice and zest)

Mix all of the above ingredients except the lemon in large bowl. Grate lemon zest into mixture; cut and juice lemon; add lemon juice and mix well. Refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving.
