Not to sound like a broken record, but cutting dairy out of your diet is no easy thing... especially for someone like me who happens to have been a bit of a dairy-a-holic. But there really is such a drastic difference with June when I eat dairy that reason calls for it.
So with no dairy, and a desire to eat cleaner as part of a postpartum regime, I've been getting creative with the salads. I just want it to be summer always. Eating fresh in the summer is always so much easier for me! They really do feel so fulfilling at this time of the year, and there are so many options for dressing them up, it's hard to get boring. This one in particular hit the mark - I'm a sucker for anything cilantro/avocado.
Salads are so easy too - I always think.. "oh we've got no food in the fridge" but after rummaging in the veggie drawer it's almost always possible to pull together a salad bowl.
For the dressing on this one, I blended 1/2 an avocado with the juice of 1 lime, a handful of cilantro, a few tablespoons of coconut milk, 1/2 a cup of olive oil and garlic. Combined with the nectarine & chicken, this salad bowl was just perfect!
