eat your fruits and vegetables.

This website-mainly it's recipes-make it worth mentioning. I'm definitely going to try out a few recipes

Look at this recipe for SUMMER TOMATO AND AVOCADO TART....scrumptious!

2 avocados, sliced lengthways to 1/4 inch
1/2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
400g cherry or baby plum tomatoes, sliced 1/4 to 1/2 inch, stem to base.
5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (notice a theme here?)
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
Approx 350g puff pastry
A few basil leaves to garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F) and roll the pastry to a thin sheet on a baking tray.
In one bowl, combine the sliced avocados with the citrus juice (it will keep the avocado from browning). If you’re worried about accidentally mashing the avocado slices, just use your fingers to lightly rub the juice on all surfaces.
Combine the oil, garlic, and oregano in a medium bowl. Add the tomatoes and stir to coat with the oil mixture.
Place the tomato halves on the pastry in a single layer. If they don’t cover the whole pastry, that’s okay! Bake for 10 minutes before removing and quickly placing the sliced avocado on top. Return to the oven and bake for a further 8-10 minutes, until the pastry is lightly and uniformly browned. Remove and serve warm.
