The power of Avocado

The Avocado is a super food! 

Did you know 

  • European sailors used avocados in place of butter?
  • There are more than 80 varieties of avocados.
  • They are good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6. 
  • In 1/2 of of an avocado there are 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams of  saturated fat.
  • A whole avocado contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K.
  • There are 10 great benefits of eating avocados!

Besides all of these facts, they are unbelievably delicious!

This week I made a chicken avocado salad and it met all three of my requirements, Paleo, tasty and quick!

1 Avocado
1/2 cup Spinach
1/2 of a Green Apple cubed
1/4 cup Minced Onion
1 stalk of Celery sliced
1 Carrot sliced
1/2 cup of Walnuts
2 Cooked Chicken Breasts
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 of a Lemon squeezed

Mix all of the ingredients together. Squeeze the lemon over it, add salt and pepper to taste. 

The combination of velvety avocado, sweet and tangy apples and crunchy vegetables really hit the spot!
This has me thinking about how we can include the super food of God's word throughout our lives, Mixing it into everything that we think, do and say!
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 119:14

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. 
Psalm 119:10-11

May you seek to have more of this in your life!
