Holy Guacamole

Holy Guacamole July 21, 2008One of the most important foods that you can add to your diet are avocados! Many of us avoid avocados because of their high fat content. Avocados may contain fat but it is monounsaturated fat, which lowers our LDLs. (To be heart healthy, we need to lower our LDLs and raise our HDLs.) Additionally, avocados are rich in fiber, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, and the vitamins E and K. Add nutrient-packed delicious avocados next time you are making a salad or sandwich and reap the benefits!Below are my favorite lunch recipes that take under 5 minutes to prepare
Veggie BLT and A Sandwich
1 Tomato (I suggest heirloom or beefsteak)
1 Lettuce slice
1 Avocado
2 Slices “Fakin Bacon” (purchase at Whole Foods in dairy section)
2 7-grain slices
Tofu or canola mayonnaises (whole foods)
Heat fakin bacon in skillet and add to bread along with sliced tomatoes and avocado and lettuce. Slather bread with mayonnaise and enjoy!

Tomato, Buffalo Mozzerella, and Avocado Salad
1 Tomato (I suggest heirloom or beefsteak)
1 Package buffalo (not cow) mozzarella
1 Avocado
2 7-grain slices
1 handful walnuts
Olive Oil

My Favorite Salad
Oak leaf lettuce (or Locinato Kale if you are feeling super healthy!)
Radiccio (few slices to add color)
Sliced Avocado
Soy Cheese (Soya Kaas Monterrey Jack cubed)- usually do 3 or 4 cubes
Raw Macadamia or Walnuts
Bacon Bits (made from Soy chips- can buy in any grocery store)
Place all of the salad ingredients on a plate starting with the lettuce or kale. Arrange avocados and soy cheese, and top with nuts. Liberally douse with Olive oil, sprinkle sea salt and the juice of a limon for flavor. Lastly, if you like them add bacon bits (totally optional).
