Guacamole

If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, I think it would be guacamole. I don’t even need the chips. I would eat it with a spoon.

Dairy Free Cilantro Ranch

Ranch dressing is an American staple for kids and adults alike. Unfortunately, the bottles lining the shelves in grocery stores are full of processed ingredients and chemical preservatives. Making it from scratch is easy though.

Probiotic Yogurt in the Instant Pot

Making yogurt from scratch may sound daunting, but it is actually very easy to do. I started making yogurt years ago when I was on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Back then, I used the Yogourmet yogurt maker, but now that the Instant Pot has a yogurt setting, making it is even easier.

Chopped Green Salad

I hesitate to call any food my favorite, but I could eat this salad all day, every day. It’s dressed with Macadamia nut oil and fresh lemon juice which allows the raw flavors of the other ingredients to shine through. The sautéed and seasoned almonds add just the right amount of additional flavor. This salad is fresh and crunchy and oh so good! You will love it. Enjoy!

Avocado Burder

Avocado Burgers

These are honestly the best burgers. I have yet to meet someone who has not loved them. My mother made these often when we were growing up and they are still a favorite for everyone in my family. Be sure to use 85% or 90% lean beef. A higher fat content than that will cause the burgers to fall apart on the grill. For those of you who like more fat in your ground beef, don’t worry. The avocado adds enough fat to keep them tender and juicy. At my house, we like to eat these wrapped in lettuce with tomato. If you eat bread, they are also incredible on a toasted, buttered bun. Enjoy!
