Honey Mango Salsa Recipe

Just in time for spring, honey mangoes are scrumptious right now. They have a smaller seed, leaving more room for the sweet, honeyed flesh. Honey mangoes are so good in fruit salads, stir-fry recipes or mixed with cold salmon, or pureed into a smooth, light dessert sauce.

They’re also my favorite ingredient in salsa (or mango salad).

But first, it’s easy to look at Instagram or Facebook and see others in a very beautiful light (standing on a mountaintop, with hands stretched out, overlooking a beautiful valley). It’s fun to see what others get to do, and to share our lives on social media, but at the same time, reality is back home.

And I’m thankful for reality. Our everyday lives are important, and I never want to be one who lives for the next big thing. I want to take advantage of the now.

The curse of social media

Reality for me this week included cleaning out the garage (not fun), and bringing a meal to a family who just had a baby (very fun). Just like spring weather, sun mixed in with the rain, there are chores that have to be done, and then little things we can do in between to bless other people.

I had a great conversation with one of my dear friends last week about this subject. We’re misleading a whole generation when we promote the “soft” and easy life all the time. I’ve recommended several people to go off social media when they start feeling like they are comparing themselves to others or feeling unsatisfied.

My friend and I were discussing a lot about the younger generation. It takes a wise person to stay in their lane and live as authentically as possible. Trying to find a balance that shows what is important, but also without oversharing and portraying a life that we really do not have. Or maybe that is not quite as beautiful.

The younger generation is tempted more than any other previous era to be all about image. Image is very important to them (and very selfish).

Being satisfied

For me, being satisfied is when I get off of social media. Anne Lamott recently posted a beautiful thought on her Instagram feed, when you’re feeling a bit low, go visit someone who is stuck inside. Or, get on the meal chain for bringing meals to people in your neighborhood, church, or community. Being satisfied is when we serve!

Just this week, my friend Kristy and I overheard of a need in a family, and we jumped in and said we’d bring meals to their family during a rough season coming up, where they’d need some help. We actually said we’d cook together. Our minds went racing, what meals will we bring?

Best Honey Mango Salsa Recipe

One of my go-to hospitality meals to bring others: Cheesy Meat Enchiladas with this homemade Honey Mango Salsa Recipe (and of course chips). You can throw in a green salad, and don’t forget the brownies. I LOVE these Almond Flour Chocolate Brownies (gluten-free) to make ahead and freeze.

A satisfied life is by far a better way to live, and sometimes we have to bring or reality back home!
