lovely day for a picnic

We are almost to the end of the first week of detoxing. Besides craving everything under the sun
 {hamburgers, ice cream, hot dogs, pizza, steak, and the list goes on} 
we've been feeling really good and super energized.
We've made it through all of week one's recipes,  {and I am biting at the bit to move on to the recipes of week two} so I'm sharing one of our favorites that we made today to take on a picnic.  

avocado with bell peppers & tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch cayenne
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 ripe avocado, halved and seeded
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, diced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro, plus leaves for garnish

 you can cut up the avocado while still in its shell and then scoop it out - easy peasy

 In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, garlic, and cayenne. Season with salt.

Mix up the avocado, bell pepper, tomatoes, scallion, and cilantro in a bowl.
Drizzle with dressing and season with salt. 
Gently stir to combine. 
Spoon the yummy-goodness into avocado shells. 
 Garnish with cilantro. Enjoy!
 Our picnic spot. I tossed all the extra goodness in the middle for us to eat. 
Drop some frozen blueberries in a glass of water for a hint a flavor. 
all gone :)

bon appetit.
