Why you should eat avocado more often?
There are numerous health benefits of eating avocadoes. Here are some of them:
- Avocado is super nutritious and is loaded with healthy monounsaturated fatty acids.
- It is also rich in fiber, which slows the absorption of the fats.
- Avocado contains a lot of potassium necessary for your heart health and homeostasis.
- It helps to maintain a good lipid profile, reducing cholesterol levels.
Healthy All the Way
Avocadoes, as healthy as they are, are just an ingredient.
To make a healthy dish, you need to use only healthy ingredients.
That’s why this is a 100% whole natural plant food sandwich spread.
The calories mainly come from whole avocadoes and chickpeas.
Chickpeas are rich in resistant starch and fiber which fill you up and feed the good bacteria in your gut. And healthy gut microbiome is crucial for a healthy immune system and weight.
The humble chickpeas are also rich in protein and complex carbohydrates which are slow to digest and provide lasting energy.
Onion and garlic powerful immune system boosters because of their high antioxidant and micronutrient content such as alliinase, a powerful anticancer organosulfur compound.
Much of the same can be said about turmeric which contains curcumin, another super powerful immune booster.
I also added nutritional yeast, a prebiotic that is complete source of all B vitamins.
How to prepare the Avocado Chickpea Sandwich Spread?
This super delicious sandwich spread is super easy to make. And is ready in just 10 minutes!
You may use a food processor. Likewise, you can just mash the avocado with a fork. It is up to you.
Put all ingredients in the processor and blend for several minutes until smooth. I prefer to cut the onion into tiny pieces by hand. I like the crunchy feeling it gives to the spread. The small onion pieces also add a texture to this fantastic and fresh Avocado Chickpea Sandwich Spread. Of course, you can put everything at once in the processor and voila!
