Purple Nurple
The deep color of blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries is thanks to their high anthocyanin content—the antioxidant that helps lower cancer risk, improve urinary tract health, memory function, and promote healthy aging. These berries also have ellagic acid—another tough anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-cancer compound getting a name for itself in the area of tumor reversal. Need a wicked awesome way to get these powerhouses into your being? Search no more!

Puerto Rican Rice and Beans
No one makes rice and beans like my favorite Puerto Rican, Rafael Prieto. Here is his secret recipe for a filling and fiber-ific main dish. In Boricua style, serve the rice and beans next to each other, and then mix them while eating.

Instructions
  1. For the Rice: In a large pot, sauté onion and black pepper in olive oil over medium-high heat until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and continue to cook until it starts to brown, about 2 minutes. Add rice, stirring to let it absorb the flavors, about 2 more minutes.
  3. Add water and bring to a boil. Cover with a tight lid and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for about 25 minutes, until all the water is absorbed.
  4. For the Beans: While rice cooks, in a separate, medium-sized pot, sauté onion and black pepper in olive oil over medium-high heat until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add garlic and continue to cook until it starts to brown, about 2 minutes.
  6. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until peppers are tender, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
  7. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days.
