This Chunky Avocado Salsa recipe was adapted from a recipe I found (and loved!) via one of my fellow vegan bloggers back when I was still doing that whole thing. Gosh, that must have been six or seven years ago. Her site is gone now, sadly (Liz, if you’re out there, I hope you’ve been well!), but I like to think that her fabulous recipe lives on in my household, albeit in a heavily-modified form. The original recipe had black beans, bell peppers, and corn in it, but this autoimmune protocol version is just as tasty. It goes well on salads, burgers, and with chips of any kind! I like to make myself a big ol’ serving with plantain chips while my husband can enjoy his with corn chips and whatever spices or seasonings he wants to add (usually a big ol’ splash of hot sauce). I like to use it as a guacamole substitute, but would like to emphasize that it is NOT guacamole. It’s got olives in it. And no lime or cilantro. Guac purists should stick with my AIP-friendly guacamole recipe.
Make your own non-toxic cosmetics!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but journey toward a more health-conscious lifestyle actually began with making my own cosmetics while I was still in high school–many years before I started “clean eating”. Desperate to get a handle on my sensitive skin and nose, I was also hoping for cheaper, more eco-friendly alternatives to store-bought products. If you’re in the same boat, making your own cosmetics and toiletries is easier than you might think! My e-book A Clean Face will give you the tools you need to get started for just $9.99.
