If you live in a country with easy access to different tropical fruits or if you travel to a place like that, you have to try tropical fruit salad. When you combine different fruits, drizzle them with some lime juice and add a peppermint, you get a pretty fabulous combination.

It’s always guac-o-clock somewhere!
Sure, you could make guacamole with an avocado and a bit of tomato and salt. You could. But you wouldn’t, because you are a dynamic, exciting, and adventurous soul gleefully exploring the potential of the universe! What you need is Super Guacamole! And here it is.
Unlike the super versions of other types of food, super guacamole is still pretty quick and easy to make. But that little bit of extra effort sure goes a long way to take you from guacameh to guacamazing. The word is pretty fun, too.
What really dials up the volume on this guacamole is the corn and the cumin. I’ve never had corn in my guac, which is silly because corn is perfect for guac! Sweet with a little bit of texture. Corn and avocado, what a neat thing.
Obviously, a great way to enjoy super guacamole is on super tacos. And then you can have choco tacos for dessert to complete your balanced taco meal. Also great as a dip for veggies!
Tzatziki is as fun to say as it is to eat. Quick to make, it’s always great for parties when friends are gathered round. And your gathered friends will have lots to talk about when they learn this cashew-based tzatziki is completely vegan and raw.
The tangy dill and lemon are balanced by the aroma of garlic, and the delicious creaminess of the blended cashews is a great replacement for yogurt. You get the digestive benefits of lemon and garlic, and the healthful fats and protein from cashews. And it’s all tied together by the dill.
Dill has a neat flavor which we usually associate with pickles. It’s a very simple way to add an exotic twist to your meals. This Mediterranean herb has been used in Greece for centuries both as a food and as a medicine. It’s now known to be anti-inflammatory a good source of antioxidants.
Tzatziki makes for a great veggie dip or as a spread.
