|New Kitchen Gadget!|
Mike and I love the stuff, and have been trying to master the recipe from our favorite restaurant Emiliano's! It took several attempts and a brand new kitchen gadget to finally get it right!
On a whim I bought the Chef n' VeggiChop while I was in William and Sonoma the other day. My other veggie chopper broke, and I thought this one looked pretty neat.
So I decided to give my guacamole a go! Here's how I created it!
1 TBL lime juice
1 TBL lime juice
1 TBL cilantro
1 handful cherry tomatoes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 dash of sea salt
1/2 small red onion
2 large, ripe avocados
Place cherry tomatoes in chopper of choice. Chop until in large chunks. Then add, liquid and spices. Chop more. Add chunks of large, ripe avocado.
Chop until desired consistency!

And are you a 21 Day Fix fan? One serving of this lovely guacamole is 1 BLUE container!
Ok and I've gotta share this too!!!!
Coming Mid July...
The Fixate Cookbook Launch!
I also have to share with you some exciting news I just learned! In July, Autumn Calbrese, creator of the 21 Day Fix is launching a new cook book called Fixate. It will inclue 101 Fix friendly recipes!
Fixate will teach you how to make healthy, delicious meals that fit into your busy lifestyle. And every recipe includes container equivalents to use with 21 Day Fix, as well as nutritional information you can use with any Beachbody® fitness program. So what inspired Autumn to assemble this culinary masterpiece?
Each of the recipes comes complete with detailed instructions, mouthwatering photos, nutritional information and container equivalents. What's more, Autumn has added icons to each recipe that will let readers know if they are paleo, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian.
Who this is for?
"This book is for everybody," says Autumn. "You don't have to be graduates of 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix EXTREME®. You also don't have to be a chef or great in the kitchen. It's for anyone who wants to make healthier versions of the foods they love."
According to Autumn, "Everyone will use the book differently. For some, it will become their "go-to" cookbook they use every single day. Others may use it when they're going to a special event like a barbeque or party."
And in addition to all the amazing recipes, Autumn has also included a detailed checklist for her absolute must-have kitchen and pantry staples, as well as the basic utensils and tools that every cook needs.
What to Expect
Autumn insisted that all the "on-the-go" lunch recipes be easy and fast for working moms. "I based all of the lunches off leftovers from dinner and even breakfast," she reveals. "I turned them into delicious, easy-to-make lunch recipes." Autumn adds, "I also included a few of my favorite Shakeology recipes—even some Fix-approved skinny cocktails."
And then there's the desserts. "I have a big sweet tooth so I was really pleased with them," she says. "I especially love the brownies (made with chick peas), peanut butter cookies and cake recipes, and the desserts are all gluten-free so absolutely everyone can enjoy them."
And it gets even better!!!
