Actually, I don’t like new year’s resolutions. You have a goal and try to live by it for about four days in January and then you go back to your old habits.
As most people have the goal to eat healthier we want you to help you to stick with that goal. That is why we put together three super easy tips to include more avocados into your daily live.
1) Substitute butter with avocados
When baking, substitute half the amount of butter in your recipe for mashed avocado. If you substitute the whole amount, you’ll end up with flatter results. One avocado is about three-quarters of a cup. Reducing butter and using avocados instead will lower the calories of your dish and in addition your baked goods will be softer and moister.
2) Use more avocado oil
This miracle oil ranks above all other oils in almost all areas, including the beloved olive and coconut oil. It has the highest amount of mono and polyunsaturated fats, which have been proven to reduce the risk of many diseases such as heart disease and breast cancer.
Refined avocado oil has the highest smoke point of all the oils available on the market. It will not burn before a high temperature of 490°F, making it perfect for all cooking.There are countless ways to use avocado oil: in your salad, as marinade for grilling, to stir fry vegetables and even when making popcorn.
3) Make “avonnaise”
You know mayonnaise, but have you heard from avonnaise? Here is the recipe:
- 1 ripe avocado
- Juice of half a lemon
- Some salt to taste
- Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
- ¼ cup avocado oil
- Wash the avocado and cut it in half. Scoop out the flesh and put it into the blender.
- Add lemon juice, salt, and cayenne pepper and blend together.
- With blender running, add avocado oil slowly (very slowly, you even may have to stop the machine some times) until it is super smooth and creamy.
