Avocado & Lime Recipe

I've always loved guacamole, but I never realized how delicious an avocado could be on its own until I cut out processed and refined foods. My tastebuds have since been revitalized and reawakened as I continue to discover simple, delicious pairings with few ingredients. With my hectic schedule, there are days I don't get to eat lunch!

Anyway, my lack of excitement for the mornings usually means I sleep as long as I can without being late.

She's anti anything that has to do with cheese, which means even a faux cream cheese frosting is completely out. The thought of raisins baked in a dessert bothers her, I kinda understand that. Walnuts are definitely out, she doesn't like the additional chewing involved.  ...more
