2 lbs of organic carrots
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
2 navel oranges
1 large lemon or 2 small lemons
Note: you can combine juice with coconut water to dilute flavor profile or you can use as a mixer for mimosas and margaritas!
The Goods (serves 2):
2 cups of salad greens of choice
1 large grapefruit
1 beet (raw or pre-cooked)
1/2 of a large avocado
1/4 cup shelled and
2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 small watermelon (refrigerated prior to use)**
2 oz organic feta
10 mint leaves
1 small lime
**The small watermelons tend to be juicier and have less seeds, which makes them great for this salad. They also fit perfectly in the refrigerator. This one is from my Imperfect Produce delivery this past week.
As soon as summer time rolls around, it's all about FRESH and FAST in The Talamo household. This weekend Ives came over and we celebrated Cinco De Mayo with grilled halibut tacos, topped with Pico De Gallo and guacamole! Is anyone else's mouth watering just thinking about it? Add some "healthy" margs and you have yourself a fine little date night in (for three!)... hopefully on your patio or somewhere in the sun!
Pico De Gallo:
How to: In a medium bowl, combine tomato, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro. Season with lime juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir and refrigerate before serving if possible, to let the flavors marinade!
How to: Cut avocado in half, remove seed and score the inside with a blunt knife. Remove flesh into a medium sized bowl. Mash with a fork, add onion, cilantro, and season with lime juice, jalapeno, and garlic salt. Stir and serve!
THE FINAL PRODUCTION:
Sometimes you just a need a little basic in your life, especially when it comes to your cocktail. If you're anything like us, when the sun comes out to play, we stock up on the Rosé... and with sunshine in the forecast, here’s a way to stay hydrated while unwinding after that 9-5 grind. Because hey, Friday is just too far away!
How to: Combine all ingredients in a wine or cocktail glass of choice and stir. Don't shake, Ives may or may not have tried to shake, don't make this mistake ;).
