By now we fully understand that no one is immune to COVID-19, but research is coming out that people with compromised immune systems are at a higher risk of holding on to the illness once infected. Most chronic illnesses are dubbed food-illnesses as they can be brought on by diet choices. What a time to learn! As a certified Food-for-Life instructor who studied under Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, these classes have been carefully chosen from the PCRM library to help you better understand the the power you have over your health. Change begins now. Join us in this virtual 4-series program where in each class, you will watch a video from Dr. Barnard, watch a live cooking lesson with 2-3 recipes demonstrated and receive the recipes and supplemental official PCRM educational and support materials.

This is a great Cinco de Mayo food as it leaves one hand open for the obligatory margarita! That's only the beginning, whip this up all summer long and take it to BBQs, summertime parties, to the pool, etc. It makes a perfect light meal or needed snack just when you want to grab the chips! And- the coconut adds a nice earthiness you don't typically see in a summer salsa; it really rounds out the flavors and keeps you satiated for hours! Order your Ingredient Kit from Frida’s!
