“you’re the avocado to my toast”

what is there not to like about A V O C A D O  T O A S T  or  A C A I  B O W L S ?!

yeah, nothing.


here are two of our favorite summer go-to recipes! cause let us tell you, when it is 100+ degrees out, you don’t want anything less than refreshing! so we got you in that category!

lets start with the,

– A C A I  B O W L –

i n g r e d i e n t s :

– acai ( you can find the frozen packs of acai at your local grocery store in the frozen fruit section )

– frozen strawberries




-coconut shavings

-chia seeds

-cacao nibs

d i r e c t i o n s :

it is nice and simple… blend together the acai along with any frozen fruit of your choice, we used frozen strawberries and pineapple but again you could use anything that sounds good to you! we’ve also made them with almond butter and almond milk, or gone the “green route” with spinach and kale!

once you have your base blended, then the fun part begins…well its all fun, but you get the picture 😉 now you can go ahead and add all the toppings you want! we added some of our favorites…kiwi, coconut, chia seeds, and cacao nibs!

and thats it! Enjoy!

now onto the,

-A V O C A D O  T O A S T-

i n g r e d i e n t s :

– toast


-laughing cow cheese ( we used light swiss )


-mediterranean herb seasoning ( here is the one we used, Spiceology Mediterranean Greek Herb )

– salt & pepper

d i r e c t i o n s :

toast you bread of choice, and add the goods! we layered the avocado, the cheese, and topped it with the tomatoes, and seasonings!

and D O N E! so good for breakfast, lunch, a snack, or basically any time of the day!


and thats it! we hope you babes enjoy these quick & easy summer recipes and we will definitely be back with more

Yes, we said it… we started Whole30!

We decided the time was here, it was perfect timing to try it! We are coming up quickly to Justi’s wedding, and we said “Heck, lets just do it!” So we D I D  I T haha It is a big commitment, its definitely harder than you think, but so worth it. Not only the possibility to slim down a bit, but to reset your body and cleanse it of excess sugars and unwanted fats. Its a crazy, strict plan but that doesn’t scare us *too bad*. . . we are excited to see the results in the end & to see how good our bodies feel!

We have a group text ( our friend, Hannah, is also joining in on the fun! You R O C K girl! ) and so we continually give each other encouragement, recipe ideas, and send pictures of our meals! Cause when it comes down to it, lets be real, we need the accountability! I mean, its dang girl scout cookie season. . . we picked a great time to start. . . not. Don’t worry though, Justi ordered a few boxes that we will be saving as a reward in the end, y a s s s s s.

We wanted to incorporate this into the blog for a couple reasons! One, we always want to share everything we are doing, going through, and embarking on and well, this is definitely something we will be focusing on in this next month! But we also wanted to share our journey with you girls, maybe you are interested in doing this yourself and we’d love to share the tips and tricks we learn along the way . . . cause if you are anything like us, you quickly realize you are slightly clueless to all the “Whole30 do’s and don’ts!

So, we will be giving our weekly updates for you girls! Joys check in & Justis check in! We are currently on day 3, and not going to lie, there are some struggles but we are still going strong *praise*. Nothing a little sweet potato can’t fix . . . aka that is what we have all been living on! We are obsessed!

Next week we will both share some bomb recipes that have been life savers, as well as some must have items to get you through the 30 days!

Now keep us accountable girls . . . pray for us & our thin mint cravings.


joy & just
