Filled Avocados

This is a great summer recipe from the book, “Eat to Boost Your Immunity” by Kirsten Hartvig.  You can purchase the book HERE.  I’ve found it very useful as it has a section called “Coping with Common Ailments”, which gives you lots of information about healing your body the natural way.  The ailments include:  bacterial, parasitic, and viral infections, candida, stress, fatigue and anxiety, arthritis, heart disease, cancer and many more.

I’m trying to eat more healthy foods that are good for me, but also taste good too!  This was DELICIOUS!!  And HEALTHY!  Avocados are packed with energy and immune-boosting phytochemicals and have strong anti-inflammatory properties.  I also added LOTS of garlic, which is known as the natural antibiotic.  It helps protect the body from bacterial and parasitic infections and also stimulates the production of white blood cells – which as you know, I need.  According to “Eat to Boost your Immunity”, garlic is still regarded by many health care practitioners as a first line treatment for infectious diseases.  GOOD TO KNOW!

What you’ll need:

2 Avocados
2 Ripe Tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 Cucumber, finely chopped
1 Bunch of Chives, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon of Red Wine Vinegar
4 Tablespoons of Sunflower Oil
1 Garlic Clove, crushed
1/2 Teaspoon of Soy Sauce (preferably organic, Tamari brand)
1/2 Teaspoon of Tabasco Sauce (optional)

Cut the avocados in half and take out the stones by using a chef’s knife and twisting the stone out of the avocado.

Chop the cucumber, tomatoes and chives and place in a bowl.

Add one garlic clove, crushed

Add vinegar, sunflower oil, soy sauce and tabasco (optional) to the bowl of tomatoes and cucumbers

Mix all of the ingredients together and spoon onto the avocados.  Sprinkle with chives to garnish and serve.  Doesn’t this look SO GOOD?!
