Print Friendly 

Description:
The avocado is colloquially known as the Alligator Pear, reflecting its shape and the leather-like appearance of its skin. Avocado is derived from the Aztec word "ahuacatl".
Avocados (contains 14 minerals to regulate body functions high in Lecithin which feeds brain and reduces fat in the body; excellent source of protein; prevent anaemia).
Avocados contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol.
Avocados are a good source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate blood pressure.


Ingredients:
2 very soft Avocados
2 stalks finely chopped fresh raw spring onions (removes heavy metals)
¼ tsp of coriander powder (twice as much vitamin C as oranges)
¼ seaweed seasoning
½ tsp olive oil
3-4 tbsps 4 water (preferably still mineral water)


Directions:
Place the water (approximately 3 tbsps) at the bottom of a blender
Then add raw avocados, spring onion, coriander, salt, olive oil and algae powder into the blender.
Using the blender, mix until all smooth and creamy.
The consistency should be a fluffy soft cream. Use this cream as a delicious topping for salmon or other main meals.
The avocado cream sauce may also be used as a dressing for salad.


Nutrient Information:
For a typical avocado: About 75% of an avocado's calories come from fat, most of which is monounsaturated fat. Avocados also have 60% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K.[25] Avocados have a high fiber content among fruits - including 75% insoluble and 25% soluble fiber.[26] A fatty triol (fatty alcohol) with one double bond, avocadene (16-heptadecene-1,2,4-triol), is found in avocado.[27]


Notes: A ripe, ready to eat avocado is slightly soft but should have no dark sunken spots or cracks. A firm avocado will ripen in a paper bag or in a fruit basket at room temperature within a few days. If you have used a portion of a ripe avocado, it is best to store the remainder in the refrigerator. Store in a plastic bag, wrap with plastic wrap, or place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Sprinkling the exposed surface(s) with lemon juice will help to prevent the browning that can occur when the flesh comes in contact with oxygen in the air.

Recipe
Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes.

Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats).
So this recipes makes a great team.
