MN did it again… it fooled us with it’s {way too early} warm and fuzzy spring-like temperatures and just as we begin to let our guards down, just as we begin to think that maybe, just maybe we’re out of the depths of winter… BAM! We’re hit with a snowstorm and below freezing temperatures.

And although I’ll be the 1st to admit that I was and still am more than willing to be done with this winter non-sense and get on to the better parts of the year {spring, summer and fall} the ONE good thing about the reintroduction to winter is that it has me looking forward to my trip to the Dominican Republic more than ever!

I am so looking forward to being able to escape the cold, soak up all of the sunshine and truly be able to relax, unwind and reset. But let’s not underplay the fact that I’m also pretty darn excited to eat some delicious food as well!

When I think of tropical vacations, the first thing that pops into my head is seafood, and not just any seafood, but some of the very best! If you don’t already know this about me, I’m here to tell you that I love me some good seafood: shrimp, lobster, salmon, scallops… pretty much everything! So one day when I was daydreaming about our upcoming vacation, I got a craving for seafood that just couldn’t be ignored and that’s exactly how this recipe came to be!

But before we dive right in, I want to let you in on another of my favorite foods… the plantain!

My plantain obsession has been fairly short-lived considering I only discovered them about 3 years ago, but I swear that my love for this banana-looking, starchy vegetable grows more and more every single day! There are 2 different kinds of plantains: green plantains and sweet plantains. Much like the banana, as the plantain ripens {becomes more yellow and then brown} the sugar content in the vegetable increases, giving the food a much sweeter taste.

Personally, the green plantains {take the cake for me} and I most enjoy them when they are dehydrated into plantain chips or when they are sliced, fried in coconut oil and sprinkled with sea salt. I cannot even explain how much my mouth is currently watering---YUM! And what’s even better is that come to find out, one of favorite foods/snacks is actually a nutritional powerhouse with endless benefits!

Did you know that plantains:

·       Are high in potassium, which helps control blood pressure and heart rate?

·       Are high in magnesium, which can help relieve constipation, regulate blood sugar and may prevent osteoarthritis?

·       Are high in fiber, which can reduce constipation and promote a healthy digestive system?

·       Are high in vitamin A, which supports cellular communication and promotes good eye health?

·       Are high in vitamin C, which boosts immune function and may protect from free radical damage?

Now if those aren’t 5 reasons why you should regularly consume plantains, I don’t know what are. So today I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite brands of plantain chips, Artisan Tropic who value the foods they are putting into their bodies as much as I do. Each one of their products are made with all natural non-GMO ingredients, with no preservatives, no artificial flavors and are certified both gluten free and paleo. If you’ve ever struggled to find high quality, real food that satisfies your craving for {a little crunch}, look no further!
