Last month, I touched on avocado and its many benefits, plus featured my Goddess Bliss Avocado Crème for the face and neck area (talk about evening bliss! Go to bed with skin feeling its velvety best!) and my homemade Avocado Mango Facial Mask. Continue your self-care by adding avocado to your diet with these simple recipes to spice up your meals. Avocado works wonderfully as a mayo alternative!
I love to use fresh chives and kale from my garden for these recipes. To save prep time, you can whirl chives and kale together in a food processor or chopper for the right consistency.
Creamy Salmon or Tuna Mix
This is great on a brown rice/Kamut cracker, inside a Romaine lettuce leaf or on a bed of salad, or even on top of quinoa. Remember variety is the spice of life!
Can of salmon (or tuna)
Soft avocado half or whole depending how creamy you like it
Fresh chives, finely chopped
A few leaves of kale
1 red pepper, diced
Half lemon, squeezed with juice set aside.
Mash salmon and avocado together, then mix in finely chopped chives and kale, followed by red pepper. Give it a good mix and finish with lemon juice.
I often enjoy this spread on a Kamut cracker topped with a kale leaf to hold the ingredients on top of the cracker. Add in a fresh mixed green salad (from my garden of course!), farm fresh tomatoes, and a olive oil, balsamic and sea salt vinaigrette for a very nutritious lunch.
4 cooked organic farm fresh eggs
Chives and parsley, finely chopped
Optional: Chopped dill pickles or olives , celery – be creative; it’s an easy recipe to adjust to suit your taste!
Roughly chop eggs and mix with mashed avocado, add chive parsley mixture, then extras of your choice. Serve topped with a few basil leaves!
This mixture works well on a bed of organic greens, wrapped in a large lettuce leaf or on top of a Kamut cracker. I enjoy eating this on Kamut cracker served with an organic farm fresh chopped tomato and basil salad with olive oil and sea salt or with sliced cucumber to top and on the side plus cherry tomatoes.
