Green Fuel for your body
The Avocado's here in Ikaria are the size of large lemons and are so relaxed that even before they fall from the tree they are self creating, while we scrape about with our advocate seeds encouraging them to sprout through all sorts of means, here they have already embedded their roots into the flesh of the fruit and are already to sew into the ground if left on the tree too long.
Avocado bursting with Potassium needed to create the mind acids that cause a serene feeling within.
Avocado Mint and Pea Dip
Makes one small bowl:
– 1 avocado
– 1/2 a cup of peas
– 4 brazil nuts
– 2 – 3 tablespoons of water
– a handful of fresh mint leaves
– 1 juicy lime or lemon, 2 if they’re not very juicy
– 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
First rinse the peas with warm water, letting them defrost for a minute. They don’t need to be cooked but the dip is way too cold if you use totally frozen peas!
Then juice the lime before adding all of the ingredients to a food processor, it should take 2-3 minutes for a beautifully smooth consistency to form.
Making everything we can ourselves from scratch can seem a little less convenient than popping a tin in our hectic lifestyles but in the long run it is very inconvenient to be ill.
Preparation and Planning is the Key to Success and setting yourself up for the day with a healthy filling smoothie such as the one below serves to tell your body you care about it enough to look after it..
