While in Cleveland in recently, I was pleasantly surprised to find my meat-centric home town offering us plant-based eaters lots of mouthwatering options from fresh juices to nut-based cheeses to hot-out-of-the-oven cupcakes, cookies, and breads from Maggie's Bakery Vegan Bakery in Ohio City. Right next door to Maggie's was the vegan-friendly Orale! which serves up a delicious trio of house-made salsas along with their chips.

I've recreated one of Orale's salsas, the black bean and corn - and like all salsas should be, this is quick and easy to make and doesn't have too many ingredients - allowing the flavors of each one to shine through in every bite.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
