photo cred Cat It seems that I have an avocado obsession of late. Throughout my journey to rid my daily life of processed food and focus on what really counts - beautiful whole foods, I've realized that I can eat avocados guilt-free. The avocado is beautiful. Even visually, it's gorgeous. Dark and pebbled on the outside and perfectly green and smooth on the inside. They are packed with nutrients, phytochemicals, monounsaturated fat, more potassium than a banana and contain a wide array of essential vitamins (B's, E, & K). And let's not forget the taste. Personally, I could eat one everyday. Oh yeah, I do. So when Ron introduced me to his "GuacaSalsaMole" dish, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Over the 2 weeks that he and Simmah were visiting, the dish was made constantly. Here's what you need: 6 avocados, diced 8 – 10 Roma tomatoes 1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped 2 fresh limes - juiced ½ large red onion chopped 2 tbsp freshly ground cumin 1 tbsp freshly ground pepper 1 tbsp Himalayan sea salt, or enough to season to your taste The avocados and tomatoes are roughly chopped (big-ish chunks) and the whole shabang goes into a bowl. Don’t think “precision” when making this dish. Think “chop ‘em up and chuck ‘em into a bowl”. (thanks Simmah) Do yourself a favour, make this for friends, family or just yourself and enjoy the perfection of The Avocado.

Hands down my favourite recipe for popcorn, the GF introduced me to the dried dill and olive oil toppings and I haven't had it any other way since. Homemade popcorn can be a healthy and tasty snack, especially good to have on hand if you're transitioning from a crappy diet to a whole/real foods diet. Dilly Kaz Corn 1/4 cup organic popping corn 1 tbsp cold pressed olive oil 1 tbsp flax oil Himalayan pink salt Fresh ground pepper Dried dill Pop organic popping corn using an air popper, the stove top or a paper bag in the microwave, check it. Top with oil, salt, pepper and LOTS of freshly dried dill. It's really important that you use organic popping corn. Corn is a dirty, dirty crop that's been GMO'd up the wazoo. If you're trying to get healthy, eating poor quality ingredients isn't going to get you there.
