Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t catch your breath? That no matter how hard you tried to calm down, and talk yourself out of freaking out, it was just getting worse? How about feeling like no matter how hard you are working, you can’t get through that to-do list?
When it comes to my nighttime routine, I am fiercely loyal to it. This was not always the case, but after struggling and living with random bouts of insomnia that can last for months at a time, you can understand why I am so protective of my sleepy-time.
I discovered this life-altering salad when I was in my final year of college in Sydney. I was in the land of abundance when it comes to avocados and boy, did I embrace it! I ate an avocado a day! On toast for brekky, in a wrap a lunch and in a hearty salad for dinner. I may have needed a HIMYM intervention about it actually.
