Ok, after your alcoholic drinks suggestions and these I think you need to put together a cookbook, do you have a blog? I can't read your answers without salivating.

"Take out the pit and fill it with eggs salad or tuna or tuna salad." Exactly. Melt some cheese over the top if you like a tuna melt. Yum!

But that means I have to give measurements! I very rarely, v.e.r.y., use a recipe so it's just throwing stuff together that I know will go good together. Yes.. I'm one of "those" people :)

I buy them sometimes, but more often make my own in my Excalibur. Any good natural food store should have a raw foods section, which will include a selection of dehydrated crackers made from things like flax or sunflower seeds and vegetables ...most are grain and sugar free and organic! I've made my own so often that I just wing it, but here is a general approximation of what I do: grind flax and/or sunflower seeds in the Vitamix, set aside...fill Vitamix with veggies, herbs, spices, sea salt and lemon juice...blend w/enough water, mix w/seeds, soak overnight, dehydrate on Paraflex sheets!

What crackers do you use, and where do you get them? I haven't look hard into finding acceptable crackers, but the idea is very appealing.

Agree with everything but the crackers... I have yet to find decent Paleo-friendly crackers. If you want something crunchy, make a lettuce wrap, or use slices of cucumber.

Or just eat it. Plain.

Tomatoes and avocado together are particularly nutritious. I think it's the fat in avocado that releases the lutein in tomatoes? Or something like that.

Take out the pit and fill it with eggs salad or tuna or tuna salad.

Or just eat it plain.

  2. Make guacamole with a little diced onion, cilantro, tomato, juice and salt. Eat with beef.

  3. Eat on a salad.

  • Take out the pit and fill that space with ceviche or shrimp
  • Guacamole - I like to use crispy bacon as my guac to mouth vehicle :)
  • Spinach avocado raspberry salad topped with chicken
  • Make a Mexisalad and dice it in
  • Avocado ice cream or add to smoothies
  • Half and pit but leave the skin on, rub a little fat, grill
  • On top of a scramble that has a protein and tomato
  • Avocado, butter lettuce, grapefruit, some walnut oil a little lemon juice YUM
  • Slice thin and roll up in roast beef with horseradish and red onion

I also just like to pit, sprinkle some salt and pepper, a little lime juice, and eat right out of the shell with a spoon :)

Throw them in a smoothie. Their flavor isn't overpowering and they give the smoothie a great...well...smoothie-like texture without adding yogurt or powders. I threw one in with a bananna, coconut milk, frozen blueberries and spinach. Since NOMNOMNOM is not appropriate, I think GULPGULPGULP makes more sense.

Mash or blend with banana and cocoa for raw chocolate pudding.

If you eat dairy, top half an avocado with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with lemon juice and salt.

Mash into cooked egg yolks with a little hot pepper or paprika for deviled eggs.

I usually put them in salads and omelets or just eat them plain. I love avocados!

I don't much like the taste of avocado but I make an avocado salad with tons of garlic and then it's yummy. More like a garlic salad flavoured with avocado.

Blend together (with fork or blender): avocado garlic hard boiled eggs mayonnaise lemon salt

I don't really have quantities, but 1 egg for each avocado and maybe 6 cloves.

It might be easier to answer the question, what simple foods can't you eat with avocado? Wheat/flour based products, processed foods come to mind. Outside of that, the world is your oyster ::ahh hem:: I mean, avocado.

Wow! Great ideas here. I eat at least one avocado a day, either along side what I'm eating or plain. Love these ideas.

I made this for dinner last night and it was delicious:
I roasted chicken and put the meat in a pan with a can of coconut milk and a can of chopped tomatoes in green chilis. Heated it up and shredded the chicken. Added a homemade taco seasoning and simmered for awhile. Served it in a bowl with roasted peppers and onions on top with fresh avocado chunks, a squeeze of lime, and some salt. One of my best meals yet. It was to die for!

Sometimes I have a half an avocado with my eggs in the AM.

Pit, fill with shrimp, squeeze half a lime over, crumble bacon over top.

Because avocados get oxidized and taste almost banana-y if they were cut too far in advance of eating, if I want an avocado on the go I carry it whole (usually in one of the water-bottle net bags on my backpack so it doesn't get squished by my books), then just break out the pocket knife if I want to dig in. I carry a little container of shrimp (take out of the freezer in the morning and it will be at a safe temp by lunch) sitting in lime juice, and another little container (like the dressing sized ones) of crumbled bacon. Lunch like a queen.

Another great breakfast/lunch: 2 hard boiled eggs chopped up, leftover steak, chipotle, and avocado. Portable delicious.

I don't like them super mushy, so I buy them before they're too ripe and keep them in the fridge. They stay nice and firm that way. I slice them onto salad, eat with some salt on top, make guac (with some mush), and have them with eggs and salsa.

I put avocado slices on top of fried or scrambled eggs w/ salsa, make guac for plantain chips or carrot slices. I used to drink a lot of green smoothies but got kinda burned out on it- made em with apple, banana, baby spinach, avocado, lemon juice and water. Riceless sushi would be a good use for avocado too!

My fave is in a salad sliced up in with watercress, baby spinach and freshly fried grass fed bacon. To prepare cut round the fruit to the stone lengthwise. Open by twisting together. pull out stone (use knife). Slice down with knife while still in skin. then spoon out onto salad. YUM!

One I like, basically scoop avocado into a bowl, and throw in some berries. Blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries are m favorites. If inclined, add some nuts too. Walnuts are good, good texture. Can be eaten with a spoon or your hands!

.. a quick fix: mash avo with roasted coconut flakes. Add salt n pepper or algarve nectar to your liking.

Option b: shredded tuna and mashed avo.

My favorite lunch: biltong (South African jerky), preferably game (i.e. springbok or gemsbok) thinly sliced as a filling for one of these humungous East Cost avos (baby head size).
