http://veganalamexicana.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/P9220010-300x171.jpg

Hey friends!! I want to share a yummy dish I made recently, amaranth with fresh corn, oats, onion, Mexican Chipotle Field Roast Sausage & jalapenos. Very filling & spicy! Amaranth is high in protein, calcium & the essential amino acid, lysine.

Day 2 of “Journey to Health”: NRGY Raw Summer Soup

http://veganalamexicana.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/souptitle1-300x224.jpg

Hey friends!! So today I made an NRGY Raw Summer Soup for myself and the VEGAN CHICANO DOCTOR & it came out really yummy!

Chiles!!

http://veganalamexicana.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/p82315341.jpg?w=300&h=224

Los chiles  originalmente son de  América del Sur y Central, pero  ahora se encuentran por todas partes del mundo, y en muchos platillos deliciosos. No sólo añaden un extra  “algo especial” a …
