healthy_eatingGreat for an entrée at a BBQ or outdoor lunch, or even as a snack, grilled avocado is a great alternative way to enjoy this summer fruit.
There are loads of ways to tweak this healthy eating recipe:

  • Add chilli flakes before serving
  • Switch lime for lemon
  • Add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Dollop on some low fat sour cream
  • Add a few tablespoons of kidney beans to the mix
  • Throw in some finely chopped shallots

You can use a BBQ for this, or a griddle pan indoors would work as well. You want those char marks on the avocado, as it adds lovely flavour as well as looking great.
Avocado is a great source of healthy fats, which are an essential part of a healthy eating diet when you are trying to lose pregnancy weight.
