Amid the hubbub of necessary actions
to split those pounds by the fraction,
in order to create those perfect beach tummies,
and general works of desperation to not eat so many yummies--
we would like to take some time out of your day
to simply say hey
and perhaps give a tip or two
on what you might want to do.
A little greeting from Kitty and Mols. Here to encourage not only ourselves, but as many others as we may, to set aside that really terrible looking pre-packaged meal and go au naturel with us.

It simple, cheap and easy way to get your vitamins in a delicious and hydrating way.
2-3 garlic cloves, to taste (if you’re not a big fan of garlic, use 1)
1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
~1/4 cup Fresh Basil, (probably optional)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 servings/6 oz of your choice of pasta
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Bring several cups of water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add in your pasta, reduce heat to medium, and cook until Al Dente, about 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the sauce by placing the garlic cloves, lemon juice, and olive oil into a food processor. Process until smooth. Now add in the pitted avocado, basil, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy.
When pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse in a strainer and place pasta into a large bowl. Pour on sauce and toss until fully combined. Garnish with lemon zest and black pepper. Serve immediately. Makes 2 servings.
FYI, Ro: I have made this and it is super excellent. Suuuuper excellent. But make sure you store extras in an airtight container or the avacado in it will make the sauce brown a bit.
