Is there anything on the planet healthier than a yummy combination of avocado and salmon? Nutritionists rhapsodize about both. The avocado – also called the alligator pear because of the rough skin – is a stone fruit with a creamy texture. It is rich in vitamins and minerals as well as magnesium and potassium. It is the only fruit – yes, fruit – that provides a substantial amount of Omega-3 fatty acids.
And salmon – that silvery fish with the pink, red, or orangey flesh? What are its health benefits? It’s a great source of protein, high in the B vitamins and, like the avocado, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Oh, and salmon contains antioxidants and selenium.
The two combined? Divine. All by themselves, avocados are delicious and healthy as is salmon. When avocados are stuffed with salmon, they become gourmet treats. You can fill them with a variety of plain and exotic foods, but if you are on a low-sucrose diet, salmon is a great choice. These delights take only minutes to put together for a tasty lunch, a healthy snack, or light summer dinner.
