Superfoods for Super Kids
Did you know that avocados are fruits? It's because they have a seed (pit). Avocados are delicious, and they're also loaded with nutrients such as healthy fats, folate, and potassium, which are important for healthy hearts and brains, growth, and development. If you've ever had guacamole, you've enjoyed avocados! Try them in your salad or as a sandwich topping.
Know You’re A-B-G's Salad (serves 2-4)
1 ripe avocado, peeled and cut into cubes
1 banana, sliced into rounds
1 grapefruit, peeled and sectioned (no pith or membrane)*
*Note: Cut off the peel and all the pith (white part). Work over a bowl to catch the juice as you cut the sections from the membranes. You can find instructions for this on YouTube and food blogs.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Take the leftover insides of the grapefruit and squeeze all the juice out of it into the bowl. Gently stir to coat all the ingredients with grapefruit juice. Enjoy as is or over greens.
Awesome Avocado Toast (serves 1-2)
1/2 lemon juiced
1-2 slices 100% whole wheat or sprouted grain bread, toasted
Handful of micro greens (optional)
Dash sea salt
Place your bread in the toaster. Mash 1 avocado into a small bowl (make it as smooth or as chunky as you like). Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon into the mixture and stir well. Spread the mixture onto the toast. Sprinkle with micro greens, a dash of sea salt or any other spices. Avocado on toast is a great alternative to butter or cream cheese.
