I love this quick, easy and nutritious snack!
Avocado with the seed taken out makes the most perfect little vessel for holding other goodies.
In this version I have used diced apple with sunflower seeds and pepitas (pumpkin seeds).
The avocado and seeds are a source of lots of heart-loving monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
This really is a powerhouse of goodness! The seeds contain an abundance of essentials minerals such as zinc, magnesium, copper; as well as vitamins B & E.
Apples are a high fibre, low glycaemic fruit also packed with vitamin C and minerals. Sometimes I think that with all this talk of super foods from far away places, the most simple things such as apples, are forgotten about.
Do keep in mind that this is a rather calorie dense snack, but it will keep you full for longer so chances are, your meal following this will be smaller anyway.
