Herbed Avocado Spread

Herbed Avocado Spread



I have learned a lot in the past year and half about what foods and their ingredients are good and bad for you. How some foods can help give you natural energy and how some can suck the life out of you and only leave you feeling more hungry, bloated, and BLAH!! Well I said NO MORE and now I am doing my best to continue to choose healthier options everyday for myself and family.  



In the past I would have used mayo and had no problems with it, until I researched and saw how it is full of a bunch of processed nothing.  Now I don't like my sandwiches dry so I had been searching for a healthy alternative. Well here you go, a perfect swap for mayo that is full of FLAVOR and NUTRITION!! I give you Herbed Avocado Spread...

1 tablespoon fresh chives
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice
dash of sea salt
dash of black pepper

Directions...
1. Chop and blend Avocado

Voila there you have your new healthy spread to use on sandwiches, wraps or as a topping on fish, chicken, beef, eggs (this is next on my list), or as I used it a TURKEY BURGER - YUMM!!



Now is the time to learn how to
Live a Fit, Happy, and Healthy life
and WE will do it 
TOGETHER!!!!
