Avocados are my love language. If I possessed the skill to write sonnets, I would write at least one very good one about avocados. Since we went gluten and dairy free, they’ve become one of my go-to sources of healthy fats. They’re so versatile, taste delicious, and you can even freeze them! (Yep! It’s true!)…

Green Beans with Tangy Vinaigrette // One Lovely Life

Ohhhh, I love summer produce season! Nectarines, peaches, cherries, red ripe tomatoes, green beans, and more. When I saw that green beans were on sale this week, I couldn’t help but snatch them up.
