Want a fast and fun recipe that the entire family will enjoy?

Avocados are a SUPER food. Super nutritious, super tasty, and super fun!

Benefits of Avocado

Super Nutritions - full of vitamins your body needs daily like K, C, Folate, Potassium, B5, B6, E
They contain more potassium than bananas
Loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids
High in fiber
Eating avocados can lower cholesterol levels
The fat in avocados can help you absorb nutrients from plant food
Ingredients

I used 4 ripe avocados (still firm but ripe)

4 Egg Whites

1 cup breadcrumbs (I used organic Panko)

1/4 cup organic flour

Sea Salt, Pepper, Salsa (to taste)

Prep:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Slice the avocados into long fry shape cuts, dredge the avocado slices in the egg bath, then flour, finally, Panko breadcrumbs. Place avocado slices on cookie sheet, season with sea salt and pepper and bake in oven at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until designed crispiness. Serve with fresh salsa.

Enjoy!

This isn't the tastiest smoothie you'll ever enjoy. The more you like lemon and ginger, the better off you are on this one!

At the earliest sign of an oncoming cold, I use this to stop it in its tracks. And it does! The big boost of Vitamin C as well as the flavonoids, B-complex vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and fiber in the lemon combined with the flavor and digestion aid of the cucumber makes for quick and immediate fighting response to oncoming illness. The added benefit of ginger to help with digestion, immunity and the fight against bacterial infections - as well as reducing nausea - is a no-brainer when you're not feeling great.

Did you know that lemon peel contains at least FIVE TIMES the amount ...

I LOVE soup!!!

I especially love it when it's cold outside and my body needs warmth from the inside out! Potato Leek Soup is one of my personal favorites, but as someone who can't do cream or milk, I struggle to find good comfort soup recipes that still taste great! I've played around a lot with this recipe, and it's finally to a place that I'm proud to share it with all of you. The best part about this soup is it's not only YUMMY, but it's super healthy too and incorporates an ingredient that is all the rage right now....BONE BROTH!!!

Bone Broth is said to be rich in minerals that support the immune system and contain healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline. The collagen in bone broth is said to heal your gut linin...

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 small avocado, sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste (cumin if you're feeling it)
  • Lorrie's Quickie Salsa
  • Use a quick spray of your favorite oil (I use avocado for this recipe) in a good, non-stick pan over medium heat.
  • Break egg whites only* and whip them into a lather. Pour into heated pan and add salt and pepper to taste. *Because this is a very low fat dish, allowing egg yolk (whole or partial) is excellent for additional nutrition and flavor! It also helps the eggs hold together nicely.

Warm the beans and a splash of salsa on the stovetop on medium-low.

Once the eggs have set, slip them to cook on the other side. When done to your liking, slide onto a plate and top with warm beans and fold in half. Top with avocado slices and more salsa and enjoy!

Here's a delicious treat for body and mind - great for when you would have grabbed a bag of chips or a salty snack food. Less than 15 minutes to make and far less expensive than buying them from the health food store!
