Sometimes it’s difficult to break out of routines. We all have them, and of course that can even be a very good thing!
But when it comes to your meals, you can reach a point where you just get tired of having the same…old…thing. You really need something new and delicious! Something that will even support you on your journey to health and even promote weight loss.
Enter the AVOCADO, AKA Butter Fruit or Alligator Pear
So if you happen to be looking for a scrumptious, quick, and healthy breakfast alternative (although it also makes an amazing snack), then you simply have to try Avocado Toast. In this family, we are all super thankful to have discovered this little gem, and we think that you will be too!
If you’re anything like us you love quick meal solutions, and making this recipe couldn’t be any more simple.
First, slice your avocado in half and remove the pit. Be very careful not to hold the avocado in the palm of your hand when slicing it, as sometimes the knife may slip on the slick fruit.
Next, use a spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh into a bowl. Mash it with a fork until fairly smooth, or the consistency that you desire.
Add Himalayan Pink Salt to taste and enjoy!
You’ll love this mixture spread onto your favorite organic sprouted or gluten free toast.
Optional add-ins that we love are fresh lemon juice, lime juice, garlic or garlic powder, freshly ground pepper, minced vidalia onion, and finely diced tomato.
Want to get even more nutritious and delicious avocado into your diet? Here are some other things to try:
1. Mash it up, add a few drops of fresh lemon juice, and enjoy it as a sour cream substitute on casseroles, chili, etc. I think you might be pleasantly surprised by how incredible it really is!
2. Use sliced avocado as a topping for your favorite wrap, sandwich, or burger.
3. Mash avocado and add some pink salt, lemon, and a squirt of organic mustard for a healthy and mouth watering mayo substitute.
4. Add 1/2 peeled avocado to your favorite blender soup to thicken it and give it a wonderful creamy texture.
5. And don’t forget that when toddlers are enjoying finger foods, diced avocado is often a favorite. Our little ones enjoy it with a small sprinkle of pink salt, and so do our older children. 😉
You may have heard in the past that avocado is a high fat food, so if you are trying to lose weight this may cause you to feel a bit concerned.
Well, rest assured, you do NOT need to worry!
Avocado does contain some fats, but they are healthy fats that are actually necessary for your body to function properly. And guess what… The great news for you is that you really shouldn’t be worrying about:
- High fats or low fats
- High sugar or no sugar
- Counting calories
- Keeping up with points
- Giving Up Entire Food Groups
- Or Weighing Yourself
These things are completely the wrong focus, and they just don’t work. This way of “living” will seriously drive you crazy and will never lead you to your desired health destination.
We’ll be talking about this much more in the future. But for now, go and discover your new favorite way to eat this incredible little health boosting fruit, because it’s not just about the things you remove from you diet, it’s also just as much about what you put in it’s place.
