Insulin Resistance Recipe: Firey Hot Red Tomato Salsa Recipe!


How could I give you the green tomatillo recipe and not the red tomato version?  I wouldn’t do such a thing!   Tomatoes are a FANTASTIC source of nutrients to help combat insulin resistance.

If you’re not familiar with how insulin resistance and blood sugar issues are related to anxiety and adrenal fatigue, be sure to check out my posts under the Blood Sugar an Adrenal categories!

Tomatoes are full of vitamin C, which supports adrenal function.  Healthy adrenals allow our body to feel relaxed, combat stress, fight illness, and feel mentally terrific!  They also have significant chromium, which helps regulate insulin function.  Tomatoes are also high in the super anti-oxidant lycopene which has been shown through research to protect us against cancer.  If you want 3X the lycopene protection, choose ORGANIC tomatoes!!!



4 medium tomatoes

1 small bunch of scallions

½ c. cilantro

½ jalapeno

¼  tsp cumin

½ lemon



Half the tomatoes and squeeze out most of the juice and seeds in the trash.  Chop the tomatoes into eighths (big chunks). Add to food processor.   Finely chop scallions, jalapeno, and cilantro; add to the tomatoes.  Squeeze in the juice of the lemon. Sprinkle in the cumin and add a pinch of salt.  Pulse the food processor four or five times, just enough to mix well and break up the tomatoes a bit more – making them juicy but still chunky.  If you like a “smooth” salsa, blend until you reach the consistency you prefer.

*Add more or less jalapeno depending on your heat index tolerance! If you remove the ribs and seeds from the jalapeno, it will be less “hot”.  The flavor can be varied by adding chipotle, cayenne, or habenaro peppers.
