Cinco de Mayo with Food Should Taste Good! Mango Salsa Recipe.

My love for Food Should Taste Good products started a while back, their GMO-free products are delicious and they continue to add new flavors of chips. In our house I try to stay away from keeping mindless snack foods around on a regular basis but when there is a special occasion or we are entertaining homemade salsa or guacamole is a simple go to for me and we always pair it with Food Should Taste Good chips! 

If your are entertaining or celebrating the festivities of the day tomorrow here is a simple and delicious 5-ingredient recipe for you to make...

5-Ingredient Mango Salsa

(Makes 6-8 servings)
3 Yellow (Champagne) Mangos cut and diced
1/4 red onion diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Dash of Salt

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix!

I like to pair this salsa with Food Should Taste Good Lime chips or Jalapeno ones for a little kick. If you looking for a great meal to celebrate the holiday try making some fish tacos and adding this salsa on top, it's perfection!

Thank you Food Should Taste Good for providing me with product, all opinions are my own. 

EXCITING NEWS: MindFuel Wellness

So I have been very busy and a little MIA from Fitsouffle but I have been working on something very exciting..MindFuel Wellness. I am so incredibly excited to share my new endeavor with you all. My long time yoga teacher and friend starting chatting a few months ago about our passion for overall health, wellness, and fitness. We truly practice what we preach; our love of movement whether that be yoga, Pilates, running, and strength training, to our love of good wholesome healthy eating, we want to know more and share what we do know. After getting together over many green juices, smoothies, and kale salads, MindFuel Wellness was born!

MindFuel Wellness is a corporate wellness company.

Our goal is simple: to bring wellness initiatives to employees in an accessible and direct manner to improve overall quality of life and work productivity.

Our offerings will include movement classes (Pilates, yoga), wellness workshops and Healthy Hour, not your typical Happy Hour!

MindFuel, and our partnership, is built on our love of movement and our commitment to healthy, mindful living.

We joined forces in Fall ‘14 with a vision to bring wellness and fitness to more people in Chicago and answer the demand for innovative programs within companies.

Tropical Green Smoothie...Take me somewhere warm!

So it is officially spring but to us here in Chicago that means it has snowed, rain stormed and it is super gray and damp. But the end is near, I know it. To brighten your day and give you a boost of vitamins and nutrients I have this delicious, creamy tropical green smoothie for you! I have added this into my breakfast rotation this week and I am so happy I did. The flavor is perfection and the creaminess makes it feel almost like a treat. I love to know that I have had some greens early in the day, without a smoothie sometimes I don't get any veggies until much later into the afternoon. I would love to hear, how do you get your greens in the morning?

This recipe is super simple, just toss all ingredients into a blender and enjoy!

2 stalks Curly Kale
1 1/2 cups Spinach
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup frozen diced Mango
2 Tbsp Almond Butter
1 to 1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 Tbsp Maca Powder (energy boost)
