Print Friendly 

Description:
The avocado is colloquially known as the Alligator Pear, reflecting its shape and the leather-like appearance of its skin. Avocado is derived from the Aztec word "ahuacatl".
Avocados (contains 14 minerals to regulate body functions high in Lecithin which feeds brain and reduces fat in the body; excellent source of protein; prevent anaemia).
Avocados contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that may help to lower cholesterol.
Avocados are a good source of potassium, a mineral that helps regulate blood pressure.


Ingredients:
2 very soft Avocados
2 stalks finely chopped fresh raw spring onions (removes heavy metals)
¼ tsp of coriander powder (twice as much vitamin C as oranges)
¼ seaweed seasoning
½ tsp olive oil
3-4 tbsps 4 water (preferably still mineral water)


Directions:
Place the water (approximately 3 tbsps) at the bottom of a blender
Then add raw avocados, spring onion, coriander, salt, olive oil and algae powder into the blender.
Using the blender, mix until all smooth and creamy.
The consistency should be a fluffy soft cream. Use this cream as a delicious topping for salmon or other main meals.
The avocado cream sauce may also be used as a dressing for salad.


Nutrient Information:
For a typical avocado: About 75% of an avocado's calories come from fat, most of which is monounsaturated fat. Avocados also have 60% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K.[25] Avocados have a high fiber content among fruits - including 75% insoluble and 25% soluble fiber.[26] A fatty triol (fatty alcohol) with one double bond, avocadene (16-heptadecene-1,2,4-triol), is found in avocado.[27]


Notes: A ripe, ready to eat avocado is slightly soft but should have no dark sunken spots or cracks. A firm avocado will ripen in a paper bag or in a fruit basket at room temperature within a few days. If you have used a portion of a ripe avocado, it is best to store the remainder in the refrigerator. Store in a plastic bag, wrap with plastic wrap, or place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Sprinkling the exposed surface(s) with lemon juice will help to prevent the browning that can occur when the flesh comes in contact with oxygen in the air.

One cup of fresh blueberries contains only 87 calories, no fat and 1/3 of the vitamin C you need per day. They are also a good source of fiber.

EarthStar Wheel: Vortices, Leylines in the Okanagan
Vortices appear to be points of power or energy on the Earth or “Earth Chakras”, and ley lines are the relationships between those points. An analogy might be that the vortices are accupressure points. and the ley lines between them are meridians on the skin of the body of Mother Earth. I grew up in Ireland and now live in the Okanagan, in BC. The Lake Okanagan is one of the points on the Earth Energy wheel map. The Okanagan lake and lake Louise are both...

Tropical Lemon Cranberry Coconut Chia Bars
Category: Desserts
Description: Remember the early 90's and the ch-ch-ch chia pets? The popular decorative planters were, in fact, sprouted chia seeds. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is an ancient grain that was used as a staple food by early Mayans and Aztecs, who found benefit in its high energy production, easy transportation, and easy crop maintenance. It was also used within many medicinal applications. Today, Chia has been adopted by the public as a nutrient dense dietary "super food." These tiny seeds contain high concentrations of essential fatty acids, protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and can easily be incorporated into any diet for an extra boost of nutrition.
Chia typically contains 30-35% oils and is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6, with each tablespoon providing approximately 2.5-3 g of Omega 3.
Fiber content of 30-40% per serving, with a high ratio of soluble fiber. This type of fiber allows a slower conversionof carbohydrates to glucose, assisting with those suffering with sugar-related illness.
These essential fatty acids and high amounts of soluble fiber, make Chia very beneficial for cholesterol management and cardiovascular health.
Promotes bowel regularity, while soothing inflammatory bowel issues.
They are classified as a high protein food, offering a complete protein (amino acid) content higher than most other grains.
They contain a high antioxidant content, providing a mix of bioflavonoids and quercentin, with the average ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value per tablespoon being 960-1000.
