Meatless Monday: Very Green Avocado Tahini Dip

Meatless Monday: Very Green Avocado Tahini Dip

As much as I try to be content with where I am at; the scale is telling me I have a gained a few pounds.  Nothing earth shaking, but a recent photo showed me I look different in real life that I imagined in my mind.

The photo was simple a reminder that I need to get back to my green smoothies, clean eating and eliminate mindless eating.

This vegan Very Green Avocado Tahini Dip is something tasty that is okay to eat a lot of.  Stocking more of this in the fridge and less Halloween candy will hopefully keep the pounds from creeping back on this month.

More important than weight, is I feel good, healthy and energetic when I eat this fresh dip.
