Healthy Diet Recipe with Avocados
I needed something quick and easy for lunch today. Normally we have a huge salad and add some protein via leftovers or nuts or beans.
Today I had to leave at lunchtime for a doctor’s appointment and decided to try something new.
I had some cooked beef hamburgers in the freezer and an avocado that was ripe and
ready to use. Before I asked my friends on Facebook how to cut up an avocado, I did it this way:
I used a sharp knife to peal off the skin.
Next I tried to hold on to the bottom part while carefully cutting away the meat around the nut.
Then I held on to the nut while cutting off the bottom half of the meat.
As I am performing this messy task, I thought “There has to be a better way.” So I went to Facebook and asked my friends for help.
Here is what they told me to do:
- Using a knife, cut around the avocado in the middle, down to the nut
- Twist off one half and then remove the nut in the other half.
- Scoop out meat.
I am intuitive and insightful when it comes to websites or traffic or using social media, but I am pretty dense in the kitchen. I had in my mind I was to cut around the center. However, I decided to find a video which showed that I needed to cut it lengthwise!
- Ripe avocado
- Chopped onions
- Little chili peppers
- Mash up the avocado meat (after removing the skin and pit)
- Add the rest of the ingredients (to taste) and mix
- Put a healthy dab on the hamburger.
We’ve also put the guacamole on a large slice of bell pepper. Some day my son may be able to have some chips but for now we have to be creative.
