Avocado Ranch

It has been waaay too long since I have posted!!  But second year of medical school, boards, and post-boards vacay are now done and I am settling into my family medicine rotation!  I really can’t even explain how exciting it is to have free time again!!

I actually made this a few weeks ago as a quick snack, but didn’t have time to post it.  It is super easy and delicious!  There is no reason to settle for all the crap in the bottled version from the supermarket when making it yourself only takes 5 minutes.  I based it on this recipe, but didn’t have all the ingredients so made a few changes.

Avocado Ranch
2 avocados
1 cup Greek yogurt (I used 1 package Fage Total Greek Yogurt)
Juice from half a lemon
1 TBSP parsley
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
veggies for dipping

Mash avocados and mix in yogurt and seasoning.  Enjoy!

Bacon, Avocado, and Tomato Salad

I have been craving guacamole something fierce lately, so I picked up an avocado on my last trip to the grocery store.  I’m too lazy to actually make real guac for one though (I know, I know…), so I just threw this together because it all sounded good.  And it was!  A good quick and easy meal with minimal prep time involved!

Bacon, Avocado, and Tomato Salad:

  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 avocado
  • Handful of grape/cherry tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • S+P
Fry up your bacon.  While you’re doing that, chop the avocado into bite-sized pieces.  I sliced the tomatoes into halves/quarters as well, but you could leave them whole too.  Once the bacon is done, chop it and throw it into a bowl with the tomato and avocado, then season with salt and pepper.  Fry up the egg in the bacon grease and put on top of the mix.  Eat.  Love!

I actually didn’t take any pictures of this because I was too hungry to think about it, but I promise it’s pretty and colorful and delicious!
