Avocado and I have always been good buddies. I’ve never been one to be able to eat a small piece of avocado and call it quits. I’ll take lots o’ avo please!
I’m also a huge fan of enjoying Avocado throughout the week – it doesn’t just need to be Cinco de Mayo, there are plenty of ways to incorporate avocado into your diet in a more moderate way than downing a big bowl of Tortilla Chips and guacamole (though that does sound pretty fabulous right now).
While avocado is high in healthy fats, its low in protein. The way I see it, it’s the lack of protein that needed fixing. I managed to get that rich creamy flavor I adore, while adding more protein, without adding a ton of calories and saturated fat. How? With the help of an old recipe I found from Jack Lalanne. I tweaked it, using present-day ingredients. This recipe increases the protein x3, so you get the best of every world! Creamy, savory and protein packed! Enjoy!
