so i am a newly single, always hungry, sometimes lazy, twenty-five year old. i cook and bake all day at work so when coming home i don't always want to take the time to create a five star meal for one. lately, i have been in a bit of a funk so i either want to throw my head into a pillow and mope, or go workout cycling away my bad case of the feels. i am being a hermit of sorts when it comes to lunch time.... but a girl still needs to eat! so probably for the good of my health i have been forced to make big salads and have a healthy happy somethin' waiting for me in the fridge when I come home (no more daily burritos? darn). my top salad is something my mama used to make me, it's a cucumber, avocado, and tomato salad. this crunchy creamy wonderland is refreshing, flavorful, and easy to make. it's great as a side dish next to some grilled flank steak, as a salsa with chips, or just straight up fork to mouth. chop all the ingredients up and bam done, sad breakup tummy turned happy independent woman tummy!
