Does anyone have a good receipe using avocados for 0-nonnies? I had one avocado each day since I found out about my non-secretor status, but I'd like to experiment a bit more. The way I had the avocado is as follows: mash it, add flaxseed oil + walnut oil + salt - I then ate it with whatever I had as a meal. I also had avocado as part of a salad once. Any suggestions of what else I could do with avocados?

I like avacados mashed with a little chopped onion, tomato, a dash lemon juice (or lime) and a pinch of salt sort of like a chunky guacamole, cumin and cilantro also spice it up a bit if you like.  It's good to eat by itself with a meal or as a snack with compliant crackers or vegetables.

I like to mash it or chop it fine if it is a wee bit firm and mix it in with eggs (hard boiled chopped), onions (chopped), garlic (finely chopped), celery for a good crunch, some lecithin, freshly ground flaxseed, olive oil or walnut and lemon juice.  Mix altogether and spread out on a seaweed sheet and wrap it up.  Let sit for a couple of minutes or leave in fridge for a couple of hours or until you want to eat them.  Slice like sushi bites and enjoy.   I usually make a few at a time so I have something ready made or portable.  Yummilicious.  :D

Instead of the eggs sometimes I use thinly sliced roast beef, cooked fish like sole (my favourite), cod, salmon or tuna.  A nice salad type wrap with the above.  

I like to put chopped avocado in salads too.  Also, in a breakfast special with hard boiled eggs, banana (sliced), avocado, and if I have mango (chopped) and blueberries, ground flaxseed, lecithin, olive oil and nutritional yeast.  I throw in a small handful of compliant nuts every now and then too.  Mix altogether and voila.  Another Yummilicious.  Sometimes I substitue the eggs for sardines.  ;)

sorry, do not have the links, but those might be on recibase......using the search feature you might be able to find them.
found this one,
Quoted Text
ice cream
Freeze bananas until  frozen (4 hours or overnight).  Blend in the blender or homogenize in Champion Juicer with any additional ingredients (blueberry, mango, pineapple juice, papaya, compliant sweetener, cocoa or carob powder, etc).  The blender will need some liquid while the Champion Juicer will not.  Spoon into individual bowls and refreeze. make a creamy frozen pie with avocado rather than banana


and this pie filling
Quoted Text
Filling:
3 avocados (2 if VERY large)
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted  (I used less of my cocoa syrup.)
In blender mix avocado, lemon juice, and vanilla extract until smooth and lump-free.  Drizzle in melted chocolate until thoroughly blended.  Pour into pie shell and chill overnight.

MMMMM....Avocados!

I have been taking them for lunch once a week or more since I discovered how good they are.  I mix together leftover veggies from dinner the night before (carrots, broccoli, green beans, collards or a mix of whatever) leftover chicken or turkey cut up , 1 or 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped up and then cube the avocado and squeeze lemon juice on and mix it up with a little salt.  It's a glorious mess and it tastes great.  And if you coat your chicken (I use thighs) or turkey tenders with spices before baking it's even better.  I haven't tried it with beef yet(3 O's in the house means leftover roast beef doesn't last long) but it's good with tuna too.  ;D

Guys!!!!!!!  My little avocado tree has outdone itself this year, and I finally got a fruit picker thingy so I could get some of the ones higher up in the tree.  A week or so ago, I picked about 20 HUGE avocados and they have ripened up nicely.  Last night, I made a HUGE vat of a guacamole sort of deal, with about three HUGE avocados, a container of raw tomato salsa from the HFS (they make a mean raw tomato salsa), a good amount of lemon juice, and some sea salt.  I did not add any fat such as olive oil because the avocados are already so high in (good) fat.  All you really need is the lemon juice and salt, but the salsa made it.  I now have enough of this for about 700 peeps, plus when I picked the avocados, I gave about five to my boss who had asked for some, five to one co-worker who asked for them, and five to about three neighbors who wanted some.  And this is a relatively small avocado tree!!!!!  It produces the large, shiny Florida variety.  After 13 years of living in FL, I finally felt like a true Floridian when I was picking those avocados with my very own fruit picker!  Picking fruit off of your own tree is one of the most wonderful things about living in Florida.  The house I rented when I first moved down here had several grapefruit and orange trees in the backyard.  My house that I own has this wonderful avocado, which I didn't know was an avocado for years because it never produced any fruit until a few years ago, and has only been prolific for the past two years.  I understand it is highly unusual for an avocado to produce fruit for two years in a row, they are usually every other year.  Yet mine has produced consistently for about 4 years now.  The first two years, it only produced a few fruits, but the last two years, it has been bountiful, with this year being just AMAZING!  What a wonderful tree!  I'm so blessed to have it in my front yard!

I also have three little kumquat trees that I planted along one side of the house.  It's a nonnie-friendly landscape!

Anyway, I'm inundated with avocados right now!  They are huge and wonderful.  Like I said, this is one of the wonderful parts of living in Florida.

Thanks Debra+,

  You could also add chopped mango and a little curry powder. :D

I'm convinced that if you eat as much beneficial food as you like, you won't gain weight as you would if it were avoids.
I even add olive oil to avocados. So, make yourself a huge vat of your mixture & eat all you want. I can eat a few avocados at a time. I can easily eat 1 or 2 in a big salad. It's yummy & satisfying when meat supplies are down. Enjoy! How wonderful to have your own personal nonnie-fix source now!!!!

Not of these big bruisers you can't!  Mrs. T., just three of these made a HUGE casserole-sized Gladware container full of guacamole!  I made a big mistake in picking every avocado I could reach the minute I got my fruit picker, because even with as many as I gave away, I still had like ten just for moi and they mostly went bad because no way could I use them all.  Next season I'll know to just take what I need from the tree and leave the rest on there until I'm ready for them *lol*.  I got a tad over-zealous!!!  There are only a few left on the tree now, way up high where I can't reach them.  Those are for the squirrels.  The squirrels got most of them in previous years.  The difference now?  One word:  Harmony!  They are more scared of her than they are enamoured of the avocados.  And they should be.  She turns out to be quite the hunter (don't ask!).  Anyway, she patrols the avocado tree quite effectively!  Now I see her Siamese guard cat heritage!

I agree with PT.  I've grown up cutting the avocado in half, removing the seed, squeezing on lemon juice and salt (it's hard to squeeze the salt), and going at it with a spoon.  This has made many a lunch.  Otherwise, making guacamole, filling for omelets, adding to fish tacos - all great uses.

I once decided to prepare an "O-nonnie Mush" for myself, which would consist of all beneficials.

Into the blender I dropped some rare steak, green beans, avocados, wakame seaweed, walnuts, walnut oil, flax oil, parsley, oregano, turmeric, cayenne, salt, tarragon, garlic, onion, ginger, and rosemary.  To this I added a little bit of water just so it would blend.

Then I ground it up and ate it with a fork.  I'm ashamed with a lowly animal delight, just how much I loved it.

(clap) funny!

We always used to have halved avocados with shrimps/prawns, a twist of black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice as an appetizer to our Christmas dinner. It was my favourite part of the meal, and only now do I realise that this was probably the only course which was good for me.(dance)
