Creator of Tall Hungry Girl

Meet Tahira Hayes, Founder of Tall Hungry Girl.

I’m a communications specialist by day and freelance writer, columnist and content strategist by night.

Tall Hungry Girl (or Boy—I haven’t forgotten about the men) is not just a playful slogan, but also a way of living. It means to stay hungry for life and actively and tenaciously pursue new experiences through travel, food, and healthy living.

I’m constantly looking for ways to learn, grow and share that knowledge with others in the process. This site is my platform for doing just that.

Avocado Sauce

Avocado Sauce

This avocado sauce is a great addition to so many different things - tacos, burritos, quesadillas, eggs, stuffed peppers, it’s a also a great dip for chips, crackers or veggies. If you have leftovers, it actually keeps pretty well in a sealed glass container.


  • Two avocados

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/8 cup olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • The juice of two limes

  • 1/2 cup of cilantro bunch


In a blender add avocados, water, olive oil, juice of limes, cilantro and about half the salt. After blending, taste the sauce and, if needed, add rest of salt. Depending on how much you like lime, you can also add additional lime juice.
