Avocados are really good (for you!)

This was an awesome meal! The pate was rich and buttery and a perfect combo with the Avo. Also plated is a salad topped with baked eggplant and kelp and steamed broccoli.

Stuffed Avocados
Let me preface. I got the idea from the Renegade Health TV Show, but I used a different recipe, basically I made it up on the fly so this isn't exact (pretty close though).

You will need a Vita mix or food processor.
One carrot
1 C. Walnuts

1/2 C. coconut pulp (left over from making coconut milk)

2 Tbs. EV Olive Oil

3 Cloves Garlic1 Tsp. Cumin

A pinch of salt, oregano, basil and thyme
1/2 Cup Water
Blend everything until desired pate consistency. Take one perfect avocado and divide in half, remove seed. Depending on the variety of avocado if the seed is very small scoop out a little extra to make room for stuffing. Peel the skin and discard. Place a good heaping spoonful of stuffing into avo and garnish with a little cilantro.Enjoy!!!
Green Goddess Smoothie (I made this today)
3 leaves Kale greens
1 frozen banana
1/2 granny smith apple
1/2 cucumber
2 kiwis (peeled and make sure there ripe)
1 Cup water (or more if needed)
1 Tbs Fenugreek powder
1 Tbs. Spirulina and a teeny tiny cube of bitter melon (optional, I used this for medicinal purposes and didn't taste it at all!)
Blend and enjoy!

P.S. The Green Goddess is good with any greens not just Kale! I used cilantro today and left out kiwis (cause mine weren't really ripe yesterday) So good! I'm sippin on it now!
