Stuffed Avocados-Phase 1

Believe it or not, everybody knows at least one person who swears they just don’t like avocados. We know, we know, we don’t get it either. We know you love avocados as much as we do so grab that reluctant friend  and/or family member and make them a new member of the unofficial ‘Avocado Appreciation Club’!

And to further your love and appreciation for the avocado, did you know avocado is a good vegan source of both protein and fat – AND is included in the Rainbow Green Cuisine, Phase 1.0 Diet? (The Therapeutic Anti-diabetes, Anti-candida, Anti-CDDS, Cancer Prevention, and Anti-aging Diet). Monounsaturated fats, such as those in olive oil, raw nuts, seeds, and avocados, are known to improve insulin sensitivity. Dr. Cousens’ clients, when on a 100 percent living- and raw-foods diet with 25–45 percent raw plant fat, see an average 44 percent drop in LDL with an average drop to an LDL of 82. They see relief from all diabetic degenerative symptoms including improved mental function. The improved mental function suggests an increase in blood flow to the brain.

As an added benefit, avocados are great for Vata people! Heavier, oily foods such as avocado and soaked nuts and seeds, both of which have water to balance their dryness and oil to balance their lightness, is very balancing for vatas.
