- Right out of the shell, raw and perfect! In our opinion, avocados really don't need any help. It's a portable snack that needs no refrigeration. We cut ours in half and leave it intact, toss a spoon in a container, throw it in the diaper bag, and voila! Healthy snack on the go!
- Spread on our homemade bread with some pesto, cooked eggs, and olives or pickles. Oh, so good! The combinations are endless... Quick and easy lunch.
- We do a nice twist on a junk food favorite, we make our own pizza! Ok, so I buy ready made dough at Trader Joe's (I've been promising to make my own for a while now). We top the pizza dough with fresh tomato sauce, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, olives, cut up bits of bacon (it's the unprocessed natural good stuff), and cheese (preferably raw milk). Then once it is hot and ready, top it off generously with raw avocado slices. Do you have any idea how good this is?! Some serious stuff for bacon lovers! Though we go lightly on the bacon because the one we buy isn't cheap stuff.
- No salad is complete without avocados in this house. We use all or some of the following with avocados: tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, garbanzo beans, green onions, cooked carrots, olives, spinach, arugula, and mushrooms. My favorite though is such a simple one that my mother makes with just arugula/spinach with avocado, olive oil, and sea salt. Yum!
