She’s a creative and skilled business woman with a huge heart and  a poignant sense of style. I’ve been swooning over her recipes for years and have made just about everything from her first book, Everyday Raw Detox. Now, I'm swooning over her new book, Coconut Kitchen. Today, Meredith shares her savory and nutrient rich ceviche recipe with us. 

M | Perfect for Labor Day - this is easily one of the easiest and most impressive dishes in the book. Including the avocado is optional. Try serving this with sprouted corn tortillas and a side of guacamole to make ceviche tacos. Finish with your favorite organic hot sauce and a glass of rosé. It is so good!
