Holy guacamole! Pass on those gelcaps, and pass the chips instead!
Have you ever felt hungry, and thought “I’m gonna go grab a few fish oil capsules for a quick snack!”?
Yeah — me neither.
But, offer me a cup of pureed avocado …
… a dash of Real Salt …
… maybe a side of fresh tomato salsa …
… and don’t be kidding if you do, ’cause my Pavlovian-induced digestive juices could start a flood without somewhere to go! Just writing this has me swallowing continuously.
Ignoring those arguments as to whether or not avocado oil is a “true” omega 3 fatty acid, research indicates that just one cup of pureed avocado provides more than half of your daily fat requirement. Additionally, that same amount provides
- more than 1/3 of your recommended vitamin C needs
- almost 2/3 of your recommended dietary fiber needs
- about 5 grams of high-quality, amino-acid balanced protein
The only caveat: If your preference is to dip with corn chips, be certain they are made with organic, NON-GMO corn. Monsanto may be hazardous to your health.
Just filling the seed cavity with salsa and spooning it out is a great alternative to dipping.
I gotta make a run to the store …
