Hey Fast Tracker’s!
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. Actually, I whipped up a fast batch this morning before heading out the door. My parents arrived over to watch little Jake for a few hours and they nearly ate it all!
Anyhow, I salvaged what was left and even though it is not looking to fairly right about now, believe in me when I tell you, it is a must try!
This really is always a hit at potlucks and events, and it is tremendously easy and healthy. It also makes a great topping for fish or as a salad on a bed of greens with some shrimp or chicken. Here’s the recipe…
Veggie Ceviche

– 1 14 oz. can of artichoke hearts in water, drained and chopped
– 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
– 1/4 pound white mushrooms, chopped
– 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and chopped
– 1/3 cup scallions, chopped
– 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
– 3 tbspn olive oil
– Salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper to style
Mix all ingredients except avocado in a big bowl and mix well. Marinate for 1 hour. Add chopped avocado, mix and serve.

Serve ceviche with baked whole-wheat pita triangles! Here’s exactly how: cut a whole-wheat pita into wedges, spritz with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray, and dust with garlic powder. Bake in oven at 400 degrees, turning frequently, until crispy.
So many healthy dips or ceviches lose their ”healthy” once they are served with chips or white bread. So take a couple of minutes to toast up some whole-wheat pita chips; they are delicious!
Get a Fantastic Monday; be sure to start your week off on the correct foot with healthy meals and a great work out!
