Guacamole.

It’s so easy to make…why don’t we make it more often?

Especially when the summer produce is pleasantly sweet and perfect to be tossed into a fun guacamole recipe.

A guac with grilled cherries?

Yes.

Last week I met my buddy, Gina from the fabulous Skinny Taste at the Union Square Farmer’s Market. We met this year on the Dole trip out in California and realized we only live a few minutes from each other so I hope for a few more farmer’s market trips with her before winter.

Talk about a fun day. We spent an hour walking around and gazing at the amazingly beautiful produce.  After meetings all day- I had to go back and buy a large bunch of fresh cherries- they just looked too darn pretty and they were calling my name.

Amieeeeeeeeee….

Yes, the cherries were talking to me.

Or maybe I was just tired and talking to myself.

Either way. I bought ’em.

Grilled ’em.

Add tossed ’em into a simple guacamole recipe.

I’ll leave you with that.

You really must try this.

So, get your crudites or rice crackers ready because this baby calls for a special occasion- invite your neighbors over for an iced tea and have a sweet summer guac party on your porch.

(Or if you live in Manhattan….on your front stoop…hehe)

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. I came across your website after my husband was searching for some high fiber recipes for me. This guacamole recipe sounds very interesting…we love avocados and fresh cherries. I have even added mangoes to my guacamole. I might experiment by adding some chopped jalapeños.
