I have some big, exciting news! For the next few months I'll be working with the California Avocado Commission and posting at least 1 avocado idea a month now through October.
However, when someone sends you this many avocados how do you not eat them every day?
So even though I'm only required to post one recipe a month you may be bombarded with more because I blog what I'm eating, and I'm going to be eating a LOT of avocados.
The day I got the case there was one more ripe than the others so I decided to whip up a salad with what I had on hand and it was DELICIOUS! Have you ever paired sunflower seeds with avocados? What a great combo!
Here's what I did...
- ½ avocado, cubed
- 1 cup grape tomatoes, cut in half (150g)
- ¼ cup roasted sunflower seed kernels
- juice from 1 lime (~½ oz)
- ½ tbsp honey (21g)
- 1 tsp dried cilantro (fresh would be great but I didn't have any)
- ¼ tsp kosher salt
Put everything in a bowl and toss until well combined.
Don't you just love easy recipes?
Oh! and the kids? Well, this is Ryan's reaction to anything with avocado in it.
Evan, however will still eat it straight up in chunks. The kid, in his short life, has already consumed more avocados than I have in my 38 years. Click here to see him pound the stuff as a baby.
Calories are high in this but it's quite filling as a meal. I've increased my fat intake a bit and I am noticing it really does help me feel fuller longer.
