My name is Andrea, and I am an avocado junkie. I have been eating the yummy green fruit (yes it’s a fruit!) everyday lately. One way I love to use it is as a substitute for mayo in tuna and chicken salads. Here are the other ways I have been incorporating avocado in my diet:
For breakfast this morning I mashed 1/4 of an avocado on toasted Ezekiel bread, topped it off with a fried egg, salt, and pepper. I go back and forth between frying my egg in coconut oil or a little bit of butter. Butter is way better for you than margarine guys! It’s natural and chemical-free. If I’m feeling like a really bad girl I’ll make some bacon and fry the egg in the bacon grease. It’s a rare treat for myself. Sometimes you just have to go on with your bad self.
For my lunch at work I simply made a bowl of rice, roasted turkey breast (real turkey..not the slimy deli kind), and avocado. Of course I topped it off with a little salt and pepper. This time I did use white rice because it was left over. I am also Japanese (I’m a mutt) so I keep white rice on hand. I realize it isn’t as healthy as brown, but it is what I had left over from the previous night’s asian themed meal. The Japanese live their whole lives eating white rice everyday and they have one of the longest life spans in the world. It’s all about moderation and balance.
I have been dreaming about this clock for well over a year now. True story. This is what I have been imagining in my head for my kitchen. I went to Target and found this clock on my journey. I was super stoked, but there was only one left with the paint chipped on one of the spoons. You better believe I will be stalking Target – more than I already do – for the next shipment of this clock.
These shoes are completely unrelated to this post, but I adore these TOMS. Can I just say I am loving that 90’s florals are back? Best. Decade. Ever.
