Fresh Avocado and Orange Chunks (Serves 1)
Avocados are rich in vitamins B, E, and K, offer lots of fiber, and eating them a lot appears to have a beneficial effect on blood serum cholesterol levels. Avocados are too bland to eat by themselves, but mix well with others. I keep oranges in my refrigerator, so they are a ready complement at my house.
Prep and Cook Time: 5-8 minutes
One ripe avocado
Two small navel oranges or one monster-sized
Cut avocado in half lengthwise and discard the pit. Scoop flesh out of halves with a spoon into a serving bowl. Peel oranges, divide into sections, and cut into chunks. Mix avocados and oranges and eat.
Notes: Peeling the oranges takes more time than any other task. I like this mix plain, but you might add a little salt or a splash of balsamic or apple cider vinegar. Avocados will brown quickly after being peeled, so this meal is best prepared and eaten immediately.
