My Quick and Yummy Avocado Ramen

Sometimes I’m stuck in class with the dilemma of deciding what’s for lunch. I have two issues: one, I’m too hungry to wait for my food to be delivered via Door Dash or Uber Eats, and two, making something requires some prepping and cleaning that can also be time consuming. Today I was feeling nostalgic of my college days, and I remembered my quick and easy avocado ramen I used to make for lunch. So I thought why not share it with you all? If you love saving money, carbs, and avocado then this recipe is for you! ( I mean, who doesn’t?!)

Things you will need: Bowl, fork, half an avocado, garlic salt, pinch of salt, teaspoon of olive oil, grape tomatoes, chicken breast (optional), Parmesan cheese (optional), ramen noodles, (I used Maruchan), and lime.

Let’s begin: first, boil the ramen noodles so that they are semi soft. You don’t want them to become too mushy when you mix in the avocado sauce.

Then cut your avocado in half and scoop it into a bowl, add a teaspoon of olive oil, garlic salt, and a pinch of salt.

With your fork, whisk and mash up the ingredients together. Add the garlic salt to taste as needed.

After everything is mixed together, add the cooked and drained ramen. Do not use any seasoning that came with the noodles.

To top off the ramen, halve the grape tomatoes and sprinkle them on top of the ramen. Add any additions you’d like, for example I added some cooked chicken breast that I had from a previous meal. You can also add Parmesan cheese or any shredded cheese of your choice!

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy recipe, and please tag and share your pics with me via Instagram, email, or comment below! I love when you guys get creative and add your own take on it! Buon Appetito!

Banana Bite Snacks

I had some left over bananas that were ripening very quickly. After making my banana pancakes I still had some to spare, and thought what better way to make use of them than with this snack!

For those of you who have a sweet tooth like me, this snack would be perfect for you, or for those of you who are quarantined and just tired of eating all of your usual snacks check it out!

Bananas are a great source of fiber and potassium. I paired them with ingredients I already had in my pantry and fridge. The first was a dairy-free hazelnut spread that I had purchased from Eataly along with some baking dark chocolate chips that I had laying around in the fridge from the time my friend Crystal and I were making chocolate chip cookies.


Here is a link to where you can purchase this delicious hazelnut spread. They also have an option that isn’t dairy-free and other varieties of the spread as well!

The next filling I chose for the banana bites was my Sunflower Butter that was purchased from Trader Joe’s. I purchased the Sunflower Butter in-store, but wasn’t able to find it on their website (sorry!). I also filled them with blueberries, but the berries were rather large so next time I would probably sprinkle coconut flakes or some chia seeds over the sunflower banana bites. 



Things You Will Need:

  • One large banana
  • Your favorite nut butters (almond, cashew, peanut, sunflower, etc.) or spread


Now Let’s Make Some Banana Bites!

First slice your banana in small bite sized pieces.

Then fill your banana slices with your favorite nut butter or filling.

Place two slices of bananas together, like you’re making a sandwich.
