Is there anything tastier than avocados?

That’s a rhetorical question – the answer is clearly no. I didn’t start eating them myself until the past year or so, and I’m not sure how I lived without them!

I add it to salads, sandwiches, toast, tacos, the list is endless really.

Avocado is allowed on the candida cleanse, so when I was making my meal plan for the week, I really wanted tacos and realized that I could make my own guacamole and use that as a makeshift dressing for a taco salad! No cheese or taco chips, but that’s ok, I will survive.

I cannot stand cilantro – I have that gene that makes it taste like soap, so buying guacamole often doesn’t work for me anyways, and now I have a quick and easy go-to for homemade.

I loved this so much I ended up having taco salad the next week too, because the combo was so delicious.
