the sweet life


I’ve been inadvertently trying this thing where I eat like the average American.

It started with the brilliant idea to make an Easter egg hunt, which quickly devolved into eating the extra eggs that I didn’t hide, and then eating the eggs that were found.

It escalated quickly.

(As a side note, it appears that I am an excellent egg-hider. To date, 40 of the 100 eggs and 2 of the 6 bunnies remain unfound. Tell all your friends.)


Then I decided that I should swear off sugar because I had been eating so much of it I made myself ill. Naturally, I decided I should instead stuff my face with Cheezies. But while I was at the grocery store, Easter chocolate was 50% off. So I had Cheezies and mini eggs for lunch.

We’re not counting this as one of my finest moments.

I need some vegetables in my life.




two ripe avocados, peeled and pitted
a couple handfuls of cherry tomatoes, quartered
half a red onion, peeled and diced
juice of one lime
guacamole seasoning or lime salt, to taste (I use Tajin)
optional: cilantro


Mash everything in a bowl with a fork (I like to leave a few chunks of avocado in mine). Garnish with cilantro if you’re feeling fancy. Serve with tortilla chips or eat it with a spoon.
So easy.
