Simple Salmon Stuffed Avocado

This is another one of my ‘go to’ quick and easy lunches or snacks. You can make this recipe your own by adding vegetables (such as onion, chives, chopped cilantro) to the salmon mixture according to your taste preferences or use another protein of your choice (such as chicken, ground beef, lamb).

This recipe contains a potent punch of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Avocados are a good source of potassium, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin K, copper, folate, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. Their high dietary fat content (between 71 to 88% of their total calories) consisting of oleic acid (a monounsaturated fat), omega 3’s and omega 6’s, further increases the absorption of the vitamins it contains. Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin D, selenium and vitamin B12. Furthermore, due to its rich content of vitamin B6, choline, biotin, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids, consuming wild caught salmon on a weekly basis may help to quell inflammation and thus reduce the risk of chronic disease.
