  • Lemon and/or Lime

1. Cut avocado in half, discard pit.

3. Add 1/2 cup of salsa, squeeze of lemon/lime juice, salt & pepper to taste

Homemade Chocolate Lara Bars
Lara Bars are one of my favorite snacks - they’re made of nothing but dried fruit and nuts, and are great for an energy boost. They sell for $1.50-$2.00 each, but by making your own, you save money and get to customize your bars however you’d like. Can’t wait to try these.

Top 3 absolute favorite dishes from Life Alive  (don’t get me wrong though, everything there rocks). Going for dinner tonight with some amazing people! :)

Life Alive is one of my favorite restaurants. Pretty much everything is organic, vegetarian, and surprisingly delicious. If you’re in the Boston/Cambridge area, check it out. It looks somewhat like a hippie den on the outside, but on the inside.. it’s a super hippie den.
