Notes

Similar to my guacamole recipe, I was following this Candida-friendly diet and using a much simpler version of this recipe. I felt that it lacked substance and was a bit too much juice and not enough "meat & potatoes" so to speak.

I added lots of fiber, flavor, and protein while increasing the nutrients, substance, and color of this dish. :)
