Tuna Poke with Mango and Avocado | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made this tasty Tuna Poke with Mango and Avocado for Earth Fare!]

I’ve never been to Hawaii but I’m dying to go. When I do finally make it over that way, my first stop will be some authentic roadside poke! And next the beach, but you know #priorities.

How do you guys feel about vegetables for breakfast? 

Up until about 6 years ago, I ate something sweet for breakfast about 95% of the time.

In the younger years, it was pop-tarts, cereal, eggo waffles, or muffins. When I got a little more health conscious, it was oatmeal with brown sugar, yogurt with fruit and honey, or (a more grown up, but still sweet) cereal. 

When I started having health issues, I made a connection between the sweet foods I was eating and the symptoms I was dealing with.

(Basically all of my symptoms got worse when I ate sugar or even high sugar fruits.)   Continue reading
