Avocadoes are a bit deal in my kitchen, and guacamole is a typical way for me to enjoy them. However, it never hurts to pack more nutrition into each bite and to spread out the fat among something relatively calorie-less. Kale makes a great accompaniment to the smooth, rich texture of the avocado. It brings added fiber and super-food status. Enjoy!

Glow points:

Avocadoes: prevent breast cancer with its oleic acid content, inhibit the growth of prostate cancer, defend against oral cancer, contain lutein for eye health, lower cholesterol levels due to its beta-sitosterol, contain 23% of the recommended daily value of folate (lowers incidence of heart disease), protect against strokes, helps to better absorb nutrients, are high in glutathione, which prevent aging, cancer and heart disease, and are packed with vitamin E.

Kale: contains nearly 20 percent of the RDA of dietary fiber in just one cup, is packed with carotenoids and flavonoids that fight against cancer, is anti-inflammatory with its omega-3 fatty acids content, prevents colon, bladder, breast, prostate, ovarian and gastric cancer, promotes cardiovascular health, is essential for detoxification, strengthens the bones, boosts immunity, lowers blood pressure, promotes a healthy immune system, and contributes to healthy vision.

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • 4 stalks of kale
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Handful of fresh parlsey or cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Dash of red pepper

Bon Appetit!
