Did you know??
In the Doctrine (teachings) of Signatures (Sign of Nature) of Wholefoods (healthy, untampered with), avocados are the signature food of the uterus and cervix? They are proven to be excellent for all manners of womanly woes, hormonal imbalance, fertility, menopause, pregnancy and post-pregnancy weight loss. When you cut an avo in half, it resembles the uterus and cervix, and the stone/pip symbolizes the baby. And get this; from blossom to ripe fruit takes about, wait, you guessed it: 8-9 months!! Isn’t nature fantastic!!
But not to worry, men won’t become too feminine when they consume too much of this wonder-food! It’s good for them too. And the myth that they are fattening – banish the thought! Poppycock and nonsense!
Here’s a great avo recipe that will defy the senses and confound your friends. The recipe was gifted to me by a friend and when avos are in abundance then I turn into a raw foodie avo girl. A rich and creamy chocolate mousse made from avos! No sugar. In fact, it’s so healthy, you could be doing your body a great big favour by eating it regularly!!
Creamy Avocado Pudding
(sourced from Raw Foods for Busy People)
1 ripe avocado
1 ripe banana or 1/4 cup pitted dates, soaked for 10 mins
1/4 cup raw carob powder (I’ve also tried cacao, darker and richer choco flavour)
2 tspn vanilla extract
Whip up all ingredients in a blender. Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the blender a few times during blending. Top with a fresh strawberry or seasonal fruit of your choice.
Gluten Free. Dairy free. Egg free. Sugar free.
I love presenting this to unsuspecting guests and asking them to guess the ingredients! No-one gets the avo bit!! Party trick deluxe.
Healthy Chocolate Mousse – serve with a fresh strawberry on top!
