Paleo Stuffed Avocado

Stuffed avocados are quick to prepare, sating and low in carbs. I use all kinds of different fillings and this one is my favourite!

This recipe includes three super foods: avocado, turmeric and sardines.

Including avocado in your diet is the best way to boost your electrolyte intake without taking supplements. An average avocado has less than 4 grams of net carbs, is very high in fibre, healthy monounsaturated fats and contains 50% EMR potassium.

Mark Sisson has an informative article about the numerous health effects of turmeric, including reduced inflammation, the real cause of heart disease.

Finally, sardines are high in healthy omega 3 fatty acids and low in mercury. If possible, get sardines in a glass jar or BPA-free tin.
