Dr Jockers Comments: 

The temporal lobe is region of our brain that houses and controls most of the communication and memory consolidation in the brain.  This region depends upon lots of antioxidants to function at its peak capacity.  This tomato salsa is loaded with antioxidants in the pepper, red onion, tomatoes, orange, limes and cilantro.  The cilantro also helps pull environmental toxins out of the system and protect the brain from the free radical damage that toxins create.

This recipe is best when mixed with good fats such as extra virgin olive oil or avocado.  The lemon, creamy, superfood guacamole is a perfect mix with this salsa.  The healthy fats enhance nutrient absorption from the superfoods in the salsa.  Add in a healthy protein like organic, free range chicken or grass-fed beef and you have healthy Mexican food.  Keep the chips, tortillas and beans out as they are loaded with carbohydrates and will throw off healthy blood sugar signaling.
