|My White Bean Red Pepper Salad|
- Dice half a large onion, three cloves of garlic (or more if you are nuts like myself), 1 red pepper, and a handful of parsley, rinse 1 can of white kidney beans and set aside.
- Heat a small skillet to a medium high heat and throw in your onions and garlic, cook till translucent and throw in your red pepper and white beans, heat just until warm. You want to make sure that you still have a nice strong bite to your peppers but still bring out their sweetness just a little bit more. Throw all this into a bowl.
- put in about 3 TBSP of lemon juice, rice wine vinegar, salt, pepper, parsley and mix. Taste and add a dash of whatever you think you need at this point, cover and put in the fridge to chill till dinner. Ideally leave it overnight cause the more it sits the better it is. Honestly AMAZING.

I think that I like this last one cause it keeps me the coolest, makes all the kids happy and is super good for them and is yet another great way for me to get some calcium from non dairy products. A few of you know that I have been playing with cutting dairy out of my diet and implementing calcium enriched foods from other sources. I have heard a bunch of info about how our bodies have a hard time digesting cos milk and the calcium in it is really just depleted going threw our system and that the acidity in the milk can actually be harmful to our calcium intake. This is why North America, with the highest intake of dairy on earth, also have the highest rate for osteoporosis; which is a massive concern of mine. So soya is my friend right now and in desert form is epically awesome!!
