I’ve been bringing shrimp ceviche to summer parties / BBQs for years now! Why? Because it’s light, easy to make, and delicious!
It’s the perfect meal if you’re bikini-clad…
Shrimp ceviche is full of water-filled veggies (cucumber & avocado), so it fills you up without making you feel bloated.
( Tip—leave out the onions if you want to avoid onion breathe 🙊😉 )
Here’s the quick & easy recipe:
+ 2 lbs cooked medium shrimp
+ 2 tbsp salt
+ 3/4 cup lime juice (3-6 limes)
+ 3/4 cup lemon juice (3-6 lemons)
+ 1 cup finely chopped red onion
+ 1 serrano pepper, ribs & seeds removed (b/c they’re extremely SPICY!!!), minced
( Quick, little tip… I use gloves when working with the serrano pepper because the spice stays on your fingers even after you’ve washed your hands a few times, and I’ve DEFINITELY burned my eyes because of it. )
+ 1 cup chopped cilantro
+ 1 cucumber, diced into 1/2-inch pieced
+ 1 avocado, peeled, seed removed, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
+ Place cooked shrimp in glass or ceramic bowl and mix in lime & lemon juice. Cover & refrigerate for a half hour.
+ Mix in chopped red onion & serrano pepper. Refrigerate an additional half hour.
+ Right before serving ( mmmmm ), add the cilantro, cucumber, & avocado!
ENJOY! : )

When I’m in a bikini (or a tight dress) I want to feel light & tight. No bloating, thank you very much!

Watermelon is one the BEST things to eat when you’re bikini-clad. It’s high in water content (~ 92%) so it keeps you full and hydrated without that heavy, bloated feeling. Plus, it’s delicious, & the perfect summer fruit, don’t you think?

Don’t you get warm fuzzies when you think of PB&J?
Think elementary school, recess, lunches by the jungle gym, opening up a packed lunch from mom, with crusts cut off (HA!)
This classic is too good to pass up just because we’re adults now!
SO—I’m super excited to share my take on the classic PB&J!
I give up the excess sugar, make a few tweaks, and invite my buddies, chia & ground flax seeds—hello, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber & magnesium! It’s a party in your mouth, without the guilt.
Here’s what you need:
+ Organic Gluten Free Brown Rice Bread (I get “Food for Life” from Trader Joe’s), toasted (I like it super crunchy!)
+ Trader Joe’s Organic Raspberry Fruit Spread
+ Trader Joe’s Organic Peanut Butter, creamy no salt (For JOYFETTI PB, mix in chia and ground flax seeds—so good!)
+ Chia Seeds
+ Ground Flax Seeds (I like Spectrum Essentials Organic Ground Flaxseeds)
I hope you enjoy it!
