Spider Senses and Fruit Guacamole Fresca


“Why the pint-a-day ice cream?”

“Are there onions in strawberry ice cream?”


“That’s why.”

Being pregnant for the first time was unlike anything I had ever imagined. No one told me my sense of smell would heighten to Spiderman level, and the mere thought of onions, eggs, and basil would send me running to the porcelain throne. After pregnancy snatched away one of my favorite foods: eggs and threatened my love for guacamole, I declared, “No more!” Hence, the dawn of the Guacamole Fresca, where I substitute onions for peaches, and we haven’t looked back since.

* Spoiler alert, it was all worth it. Our baby is the most beautiful and perfect happy little human I have ever seen.
