3 Minute Curryavos | Organic Paleo Raw GF Snacks

What's a curryavo? 

Have you heard of curryavos yet? Probably not because we just kind of invented them as a way to spice up one of our favorite paleo snacks- avocados. These tasty fruits (yep- avocados are technically a fruit!) not only taste amazing, but we also love that they are gluten free, sugar free, dairy free.. and a highly recommended food from folks like Dr. Cate Shanahan. In fact, it's part of the 4th pillar of Dr. Shanahan's four pillars of nutrition: Fresh, Uncooked Ingredients.  Avocados are packing some pretty rocking nutritional power.

  • Meat on the Bone
  • Organ meats
  • Fermented and sprouted foods
  • Fresh, uncooked ingredients

An incredibly tasty, raw ingredient snack

1- Avocados contain fat. 77% of it is fat, in fact. We all used to think fat was bad, but science has proven otherwise- and it turns out that some fats are actually nutritional superstars. Avos have oleic acid in them- a monounsaturated fatty acid that is proven to keep your heart healthy.

2- The fat in avocados will help you absorb fat soluble nutrients better. Which means you'll get more antioxidants and vitamins out of the salad & other organic veggies you pair with it. Yes, please!

3- Avocados have been linked to fighting cancer, helping our eyes (they contain eye loving compounds Lutein and Zeaxanthin), and reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

How to make Curryavos

Recipe preparation time & type: 3-5minutes - Super quick paleo morning or afternoon snack, or pack it for lunch.

1. Cut a ripe organic avocado in half. I recommend Hass avocados for their flavor!
2. Spice it up, and get creative: Add little sprinkles of fun organic spices: curry powder, cumin, basil, cilantro, turmeric- feel free to experiment!
3. Optional: Add a dash sea salt & pepper to flavor. If you work out and sweat a lot, it's great to replenish salts- within moderation of course!

**Paleo Protein pairing: Avocados go great with canned red salmon, soft boiled eggs, diced or sliced bacon, and grass fed beef!
