Watermelon Mango Salsa

Last night was such a colorful dinner! I wish we had eaten when there was still daylight outside so I could have taken the pictures in natural light. As I said yesterday, our dinner consisted of cooked spinach, a little bit of grilled chicken, raw carrots and guacamole, and watermelon mango salsa.

The guacamole was made up of 2 mashed avocados, some lime juice, chopped cilantro, chopped red onion, and salt and pepper to taste. I love dipping carrots and sugar snap peas in guac instead of chips! It makes it much healthier!

The watermelon mango salsa sounded so gross to me, but my mom insisted that it was amazing. And she was 100% right. I could LIVE off this stuff... although it makes a huge difference that the watermelon and mango we used were super sweet and fresh. It was probably the best watermelon I've ever tasted.

Watermelon Mango Salsa:
2 c. Cubed Watermelon
1 c. Cubed Mango
1/4 c. Red Onion
2 T. Cilantro
1 T. Lime Juice
1/4 tsp. Sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt

It tastes better if you let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so in order for the flavors to combine, but it is not required.

I'm thinking my workout for today will be this. It was posted by Jen from Peanut Butter Runner, and I'm excited to try it. The goal is to warm up with a mile run, repeat her circuit 2-3 times, and then cool down with a mile. Well see how it goes...

Happy exam studying, my college friends!!
