Ready, set, cook!
The kitchen is a place of trial and error, experimentation, and adventure. Yes, you’ll fail. But you’ll also succeed. No matter what, though, you’ll always have fun! Check out the recipes below to get you started!
This salad is perhaps my favorite.
- 1 avocado
- ½ cup salsa
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- ¼ cup diced red onion
- 1 thinly diced garlic clove
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- Juice of ½ lime
- Juice of ½ lemon
- Greens (romaine lettuce or spinach)
Mash the avocado into a mush with the back of a fork in a salad bowl. Fold in remaining ingredients. With clean hands, massage the mixture into salad greens until each leaf is evenly coated. Serves 2.
This recipe is wonderful because the dressing has the density of ranch dressing and will fill you up without packing on the pounds.
Chocolate Banana Ice Cream
- 3-4 peeled bananas, frozen
- ½ chocolate bar
In blender, blend the frozen bananas until fluffy in consistency. Add the chocolate bar to give the ice-cream surprise chunks of deliciousness!
Tip: You can also add cocoa powder to make the ice-cream even more chocolate-y. If you’d also like it to be sweeter, add 1-3 tablespoons of honey.
