shade of new beginnings & avocado pudding

I don't know if other people do what I do - I associate things such as music, food, etc to certain memories and events that I experience. This month's color theme - emerald hues - is associated with new beginnings. :)

One of my favorite paleo snacks.

Avocado Pudding

2 ripe avocado
almond milk
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (if desire)

Combine all ingredients together into a blender. Blend and enjoy. You may put the pudding in the fridge for about 20 mins if you didn't blend it with ice.

You can add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to make the recipe into a chocolate avocado pudding :)

Thanks for joining us this month!

avocado salad

with my spring travel adventures upon me, comes my insatiable desire to eat everything, every where i go.  so when i'm home, i try to make my meals, quick, simple, and healthy.

what's quicker, simpler, and healthier than an avocado salad that contains just about 5 ingredients? not much.

  • Avocado, diced
  • Tomato, diced
  • Basil, roughly chopped
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Combine all your ingredients into a bowl, mix, eat immediately, or you can let all the flavors marry in the fridge for about an hour.

Thanks for dropping by!

Hawaii 2013 - Top of Koko Head Crater
rumor on the street is that Emerald is the color of the year.  i might be biased, since i'm a May baby, but in any case, i love love the bright jewel green color!

i just got back from a 5 day vacation in Hawai'i.  this was my first time there and we explored the island of O'ahu.  there were delicious foods, beautiful sunsets, relaxing beaches, and we brought back more chocolate macadamia treats than we did clothes.  i already can't wait til my next trip!

i wore this to hike Koko head, probably not the most ideal choice, but at the same time, i didn't want to walk around in running shorts all day. fashion problems.  emerald at the top of Koko head looks good.   at least i kept it fuss free, and let the accessories at home.  it would've bugged the heck out of me to have bracelets and necklaces against my skin in this heat.
