Bikini Meals: Shrimp Ceviche

Bikini Meals_Shrimp Ceviche on, aerial shot

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:

Serves 6-8


+ 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

+ Mix in chopped red onion & serrano pepper. Refrigerate an additional half hour.

+ Right before serving ( mmmmm ), add the cilantro, cucumber, & avocado!


ENJOY! : )

Bikini Meals: Watermelon Mint Popsicles

Bikini Meals - Watermelon Mint Popsicles, by the pool - on

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

In this series, I’m sharing eats + sips for the bikini-clad babe—the goal is to reduce bloating, satisfy hunger, and stay hydrated.

⇣ ⇣ ⇣

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?

These Watermelon Mint Popsicles are easy to make & they honestly taste like summer on a stick—they’re sooo good!


Here’s the quick recipe…

Open-faced PB&J (with superseeds!!)

Open-faced PB&J with chia and ground flax seeds on

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!

Open-faced PB&J with superseeds on

SOI’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 seedshello, 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!
