Bake an Egg in an Avocado for a Fast and Healthy Breakfast Treat


Avocados are amazing things—they’re delicious on their own, but they also have a lot of healthy fats, dietary fibers, and vitamins, and despite their high caloric value, they’re remarkably easy to prepare. If you have an avocado that’s too firm to use for something else, or you’re just in the mood for something new and healthy for breakfast, slice it in half, remove the pit, and carve out a little space in the center. Crack an egg where the pit was, and bake. In a few minutes, you’ll have a delicious, protein and vitamin-packed breakfast treat that’s rich enough to keep you going all morning.

Preheat oven to 425, have cast iron pan in there

Slice avocado in half, take out pit

Take pan out, put avocado half on, crack egg in

Put whatever you want on top (Nutritional Flakes are AWESOME!)

Place in oven and cook till your eggs [are done how you] desire

 

NOW IT’S TIME TO MOVE YOUR BODY!!!

Fresh from our garden today…. Here is what I used in my cabbage salad:
1 head cabbage
Carrots
Cilantro
Lemon basil
1 avocado
1 head broccoli
1 onion
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds

Dressing:
Juice of 1 lemon
3 capfuls Apple cider vinegar (ACV)
4 tbsps or so of balsamic vinegar
10 “turns” of salt
Dash of sugar
Dash of coconut aminos or bragg’s aminos

Chop up all of the veggies.  Whisk the dressing ingredients in a separate bowl, pour on top, mix & refrigerate for at least one hour.  Serve cold.  ENJOY!

We paired our salad with a big marinated bbq’d chicken breast & my pulp crackers.  SOOOO yummy!

Lunch on the Go

20120430-155006.jpg

Here is a healthy example of lunch on the go. Do you pack your lunch daily?

This is a hodge podge of lettuce, grated carrot, chopped celery, 1/4 sweet potato, 1/4 avocado, 2 sliced strawberries & 4-6 ounces of Cod mixed up with whole grain mustard. This creates a balanced, tasty, easy lunch. TRY IT!

Tips:
*GLASS CONTAINERS – no bpa, keeps food fresh, washes easily, Costco $30
*Ice in a zip lock – keeps your lunch cold & fresh
*Cook an extra piece of cod when you are making your dinner
*Cook 3-4 extra sweet potatoes so you can chunk them up cold onto your salads
*Have the salad already made (no dressing)

I made this in 5 minutes. It is TOTALLY doable if you are PREPARED!!! There are ZERO excuses for last minute fattening lunch choices. EAT CLEAN = HOT BODY!!!!
