Yes, I have officially become infatuated with the fat.
Avocado has stolen the spotlight in the majority of my dishes–both sweet and savory–because of its its creaminess & versatility. It serves as a flavorful topper to a salad, a thick spread to a sandwich, a chunky dip with some chips, a creamy agent in a smoothie (with no added taste!), and a perfect pair with ripe tomatoes (with a sprinkle of sea salt).Forget about fearing the fat and focus on becoming infatuated.
Health Benefits of Avocados:
Full of heart healthy monounsaturated fat
Monounsaturated fats aid in the absorption of antioxidants (lycopene and beta-carotene)
Meals with small amounts of fat will leave you feeling full & satisfied
Monounsaturated fats can help maintain moisture levels in the epidermal layer of your skin, making it look & feel healthy
Good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6
Aids in lowering cholesterol levels & regulating blood pressure

While interning at Sisco+Berluti, stacking is always on the mind. Finding the right colors and textures that will complement each other when layered together is a true delight. Every time I create a stack, I indulge in the endless possibilities of unexpected pairings of arm candy. I love changing things up and making a new creation from bracelets that I already own.With stacking on the mind, I was inspired to try something new: a stacked smoothie. I layered a thick blueberry smoothie over a ripe peach & banana smoothie, and let me tell you, the end result was a perfect stack.
Stacked Up Smoothie
1 c. unsweetened almond milk
1/4 c. frozen ripe peaches
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 c. frozen blueberries
5 ice cubes
Pinch of cinnamon
Stevia to taste
Combine the milk, Stevia, cinnamon, peaches, ice, banana & peaches and blend until smooth. Pour half of the smoothie into a glass. Add in the blueberries and blend until smooth. Pour the remainder on top of the banana & peach smoothie. Top with fresh berries or granola. Enjoy!
Summer is never complete without dining at the Atlantic Fish& ChopHouse in Martha’s Vineyard. Located on the cobblestone streets of Edgartown, this restaurant overlooks the harbor, encourages dining al fresco, and is home to the freshest seafood.
If there’s one season that you don’t need an excuse for why your shirt is so bright or why your bathing suit bottoms are two different colors, it’s summer.
Summer encourages the bolds, spices up the solids, and brightens up the neutrals. Embrace the summer look with an extra notch of neon. Whether it’s wearing a bright bikini or a simple Sisco+Berluti summer stack, the colors will make a fun summer statement and compliment that tan you’ve been working on.
Keep in mind, all you need is a bit of the brights… avoid using too much neon or else you will be making everyone wish they had brought their extra pair of shades with them.
