Super Bowl 2016 – Peanut Super Salsa with Sprouts & Seeds

 

Lately I have been so peckish and scavenging through the fridge and cupboards for something to munch munch more 🙂  and this is what I put together.  I call this my Super Bowl because:  Peanuts are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals.  Sprouts are the “Power House Of Nutrients” and an excellent source of protein, fiber, and vitamin B. The pumpkin seeds are packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, along with numerous health promoting antioxidants and the sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, Copper and B vitamins……and Voila!!! a Super Bowl of wholesome goodness
