Avocado, Watermelon & Cucumber Salad1

Just like the summer flavors brought together with this salad. Juicy ripe watermelons, creamy avocado, annnnnddd lime + cilantro? Holy. I required one bite and I knew I had dropped in love.
Causeing this to be salad was a serious soul saver along with a possible artery declogger. After consuming half of the pie , my body wished to punch me in the face. Do you know that feeling? That pie and I aren’t friends anymore because eating it meant I had to perspiration my entire soul from my yoga mat. However those crazy pretzel-body twisting moves persuaded me that I’ve officially learned how exactly to defy both gravity and substantial calorie consumption. No biggie.
I’m over my pie indulgence right now. Mainly because watermelon and avocado equivalent a full providing of forgiveness. But just so we’re apparent, making vegan salads doesn’t indicate I won’t consume a crust filled with buttery love. I simply have to learn to visit one slice next time. Probably. Possibly? Ugh.
Moving on. I’ve been coming across lots of fun finds lately. Find?
