Avocado and Turmeric - what the heck!

Avocados are amazing seasonal fruits. The primary season is late winter/early spring but you can find them in markets year round. They are not too sweet, have useful fats and come with a large pits (seeds) that can be dried and used as coins in board games.

Some people may not like the texture of the avocado fruit but don't let that discourage you. If you love avocados, then game on and enjoy it in different ways. I like them raw as slices, or add them to smoothies (avocado, carrot, banana + milk - no sugar!) or use it in salads as small chunks. Avocados have many benefits and uses as detailed here and here.

Today I present a one of my favorite avocado recipes, blending some Indian spices (esp. the awesome turmeric) to make a colorful sandwich (read the facebook post here). This one uses the healthy fat present in the avocado as a carrier for increased bioabsorption of turmeric in our body.

Step 1: The ingredients: Avocado, spinach, onions, jeera seeds, whole black pepper, turmeric powder, cheddar cheese, lemon slice. Optional: carrots, red onions, red peppers
roasting the spices in butter, you can also use coconut oil etc. even just 2 drops will do.
