My 1st article in the Minimalist Life Mag!

I got my first Minimalist article published a few seconds ago, so I thought I would share. It was published by The Minimalist in their Minimalist Life Magazine.

Avocado Seed: Eaten it! Drink it! Love it!

So, I am sure everyone looking at this seed is wondering what it is! Is it an almond? Some newly discovered super nut? Nope!  It is an avocado seed. An old superfood or better yet, super seed! I know most of us (me included -for a long time-) just bought that green hard-shell pear-shaped fruit for its greenish-yellow creamy fat-filled goodness, but we were all missing out. Sure the internal flesh of an avocado has undeniable health benefits, but so does its internal seed. So, stop throwing that super seed away, thinking that it is the part that weights the most and has no nutritional or consumption value. It is a superfood and we should take advantage of its blessings for your mind, body and energy!

So, of course the next question. Is how much fat and calories does this super seed cost us. I visited my favorite food app to find out, MyFitnessPal.com. It says it is about 100 calories, but you will find the average avocado seed is really large, so it would be better to use it over a few servings or to share the benefits with friends and family from one seed. I figure it works out to be about 25-50 calories per person, but that depends on your seed and your sharing. The other thing that you notice is that it is high in fiber, low in sugar, low in fat and about average in carbs for a fruit. That said, like with most superfoods, the benefits are not in the nutritional charts. The magic is in how it helps our body and mind perform!

Avocado seeds is packed with antioxidants, burn fat and boost the metabolism, relieves muscle and joint pain, gives your body an energy boost, fights mood changes and depression, helps us to age gracefully and much more. Here is a link to a website that breaks down how you can use it, eat it, cook it, drink it and even, turn it into a body scrub. Thanks Step-to-Health.com! I even found a quick video that talks about the many blessings of the avocado seed. Thanks Dailymail.uk! Here is the video: 

So, try it out and let me know if you notice any differences in your body, energy or general mood? If you like the taste? Did you already know the benefits of this super seed? I wish I knew, because at one point in my life. I ate about an avocado or two a day and threw out the seed without even thinking about it.

Here is quick smoothie recipe you can try: 1 seed, 1 or 2 cup of fat-free plain yogurt, 1 cucumber, 1 peach, 1 banana, a little water to get it to your preferred texture or thickness and a table-spoon of chia seeds (if you have some lying around). This should serve about 4 to 6 people. Feel free to add honey, if you prefer your drink a little sweeter. Enjoy!

Carrot Smoothie Recipe

Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables and probably one of the reasons why I still have 20/20 vision coming from a family where almost everyone wears glasses.

Calories: This recipe makes around 3-5 servings and is between 50-100 calories depending on the pour or cup size.

Ingredients: 2 large carrots, 1 large yellow pepper, 5 large seedless unsweetened dried prunes, 3-4 cups of spinach, 5 thin slices of ginger and 2 to 3 cups of water. All raw foods! 

Blending: Just throw everything in the blender.  I would start with 2 cups of water and decide after you blend, if you want to add more water. Once you see that all the big junks are gone, it is up to you to decided how smooth of texture you want. 

Drinking: Normally when you juice you should consume the smoothie immediately. I do not recommend letting your smoothie sit for hours without consumption. Try to organize it that you can finish it before lunch or at lunch. If you find you need it to be a little sweeter, you can add organic honey. Remember, honey is about 20 grams of sugar per serving.

If you like the recipe, let me know. If you add something different that might be good for me to try too, I would love to hear about it.
