Who doesn't love avocados?!?! I've been pretty obsessed with them lately...stuffing them in sandwiches, using them in salads, and eating them as a snack or as a side along with a low-fat dinner! Did you know that avocados contain nearly 20 essential vitamins and minerals and they also serve as a nutrient booster? They help your body to better absorb fat-soluble nutrients such as lutein and alpha & beta-carotene. If I'm finding myself eating a lot of low-fat foods then I try to incorporate this dish into my diet. I think this is one of the best and most simple ways to eat an avocado! Plus, this recipe only takes about 5 minutes to prepare!
Olive oil (preferably high quality)
Salt & Pepper to taste
This one is really simple! Simply cut how many slices of avocado you want. Layer the slices on a plate. Drizzle with some high quality olive oil (you don't need a lot). Sprinkle with some fresh ground sea salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy!
Tip: I cut the avocado in half. Keeping the skin on, I slice off the amount of slices that I need and then I peel the skin off and arrange the slices on a plate. I take the remaining avocado and I place it back on the other half, keeping the seed in place. I then store it in an air-tight container. This keeps the avocado longer and prevents browning. The outer edges will still brown just a bit but the rest of the avocado won't. For later use, just do the same and cut what you need. For some reason, keeping the seed in helps the avocado from browning and keeps it longer.
