On this lovely and joyful day, I want to share with you my new favorite: White Bean and Avocado Salad!

White Bean and Avocado Salad

Yummmy White Bean and Avocado Salad

This White Bean and Avocado Salad is one of the easiest and most delicious things I’ve had recently! I’m not even slightly fibbing,  it’s GOOD! I put it on sandwiches, enjoy it as a dip with crackers, assorted veggies and pitas or just eat it with a fork.  It combines healthy fats from the avocado, fiber and protein from the beans and a little crunch from the celery!

This recipe is so amazing and SIMPLE! Oh and did I mention it’s vegan, gluten free and still divine?!  Make a “tuna” sammie soon! I know I am! :)

Lunch!

Lunch last week on millet and flax bread with tomato & sprouts!
