Holy Guacamole!

What’s the easiest vegan meal loved by carnivores and herbivores alike?  Guacamole of course!!  

I was looking for a quick, filling, yet tasty meal and after a quick scan of the kitchen found two avocados just begging to be used.  I used the juice of one lime, 1 red bell pepper (diced), 2 small tomatoes (diced), 1/4 onion, a few sprigs of cilantro, and 2 cloves garlic (mased into a paste).  Flavor with salt & pepper and voila!  

Spread atop an Ezekiel sprouted grain wrap along with some shredded green leaf lettuce & salsa.  And a side of vegan baked beans.  Random; yes.  Delicious; absolutely!

So you know how I mentioned I was running with coconut water instead of water on Saturday?  Well I completed a full 19 miles and felt awesome the whole way!  I blame the coconut water 🙂  I’m definitely going to be bringing some in a disposable squirt bottle for the marathon (fresh of course).  It was easy on my tummy, gave me energy and definitely quenched my thirst!!  I encourage you guys to try it – it’s seriously amazing!  Sorry for the short post guys… bball’s on!

    I’ve been craving avocados like crazy this week. This is a fantastic recipe! And I adore coconut water. What brand do you use?

    How funny – you mention my two hangover cures in the same article: Avocados and ONE Coconut Water! I love the new flavored coconut water from ONE. They’re on sale right now too, which is always great as coconut water, being a “hot” new drink, seems to be high in price.

    Yasmin: I actually had a few young Thai coconuts in my fridge that I was using for an Easter recipe and I used the water straight from the coconut – very fresh and yummy! (and only $2 at my health food store and you get about tons of water plus the meat!)

    Yum I love guac! I’ve never had the Ezekiel wraps, but they make a nice corn tortilla.
