Happy birthday to my best friend, idol, mentor, shopping buddy, pedicure partner, and best of all; my mom! You don’t look a day over 20 and I really hope that I get your genes!

I thought I would check in with you guys so you don’t think I have disappeared again! Things have been going at lightening speed in my life and I’m finally back in my own home for a little while… until the next adventure takes place! I spent the past weekend in Palm springs with my amazing friends for a much needed girls’ weekend. So much fun! Updates coming soon, but for now I have a delish avo snack idea for you guys!

My mom is obsessed with avocados. Literally. She cuts them open and eats them with a spoon! In honor of momma Cathie’s birthday I thought it was totally appropriate to share one of my favorite avocado snacks!

Today’s power snack is a Hass avocado drizzled with honey followed by a sprinkle of crunchy sesame seeds. Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. This will satiate your sweet tooth, give you a little bit on crunch to nibble on, and keep you full in between meals! Win win… win!

Avocado Honey Snack
Avocado Honey Snack
serves 2

1 avocado
1 Tbsp honey – divided
1/2 Tbsp sesame seeds or sunflower seeds – divided

Cut the avocado in half and remove pit. Drizzle each half with honey and sprinkle with seeds. Eat right out of the shell with a  spoon!

    I love avocado scooped straight out of the shell! So simple, so delicious! (love it with just a sprinkle of sea salt when cravings call). Also, your mom could seriously pass as your sister. I’m sure she gets mistaken sometimes, and I’m sure she LOVES it too (my mom does!)!

    She seriously doesn’t look a day over 20, and it is pretty obvious that you must have her genes, you two look like twins!

    We had this (avocado snack) for lunch yesterday! It is one of my favorite treats!

    I do love the manner in which you have framed this particular difficulty plus it does indeed supply us a
    lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of just what I have seen, I really wish as the commentary pack on that men and women remain on point and
    don’t start upon a soap box of the news of the
    day. Yet, thank you for this outstanding
    point and although I can not concur with it in totality, I regard your perspective.
