I usually HATE to cook. I think one of the reasons for this is that I like to make everything from scratch. I don't like box cakes, premixed sauces, frozen lasagna, instant mashed potatoes, Bisquick etc. It's all about control. I like to control what ingredients are going into my body. I like simple, organic, chemical free foods. Anyway, my ideas don't taste that great, so my family usually doesn't go back for seconds (have you noticed how skinny we are?). So, I've been trying some new recipes and have been pleasantly surprised at how good the food is! I made, the best steak I've ever tasted, the best salmon Sweetface has ever had, and here is a salad we ate tonight that I got from a raw food website. It sounded like a weird combo, but try it, because you will like it!

Mango Avocado Salad

  • 2 Ripe Mangoes, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 1 Large Avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juiced
  • 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Black Sesame Seeds

Hand mix all of the ingredients together and serve.
