    This was nice! Nicer than I had expected at first. While I'm a HUGE fan of avocados, raw peppers are really my friends. It's actually the dressing that brings everything together! Yummy dressing and very versatile too!! I was also worried that it wouldn't be enough and I was wrong, it was just enough (slightly on the not-enough side but this is a cleanse after all).

    This was amazing! My husband, who isn't doing the cleanse, made it clear he'd love to take some for lunch one day. It's so fresh and wonderful and I felt full well until evening.

    This recipe basically inspired the making of some guacamole. Avocado, garlic, lemon/lime, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper to taste. Also feel free to add the tomatoes. I used carrot sticks and bell peppers to dip! Yummy and easy easy!

    This recipe was pretty good. I am not a fan of tomatoes but even found them to be tolerable. It was also pretty filling and I loved the avocado!

    By far my #1 favorite recipe for this fast! Very filling, I typically couldn't eat the last few bites, so my husband stepped in :)

    I adore this recipe. I was a little unsure at first, but it turned out wonderful. Instead of stuffing everything into the avocado shell, I spoon the avocado out and dice it up, then toss everything together into a salad bowl. Just as delicious! It is VERY filling because of the nutrient density of the avocado - held me over until dinner. I go easy on the extra oil because avocados are already loaded with healthy fats! Will definitely be enjoying this one more often.
