It has been a while since I posted anything related to paleo. But I am still on it and have taken a resolution to make it my lifestyle forever. There are only two fruits we are allowed to take while in paleo and weight loss. Those are avocado and guava. Even guava should not be ripe. SO whenever cravings hit, you can either eat a raw guava or an avocado. If you reside in India, you might know that avocado is too expensive. We pay a fortune to buy a single avocado and though it is so healthy, I just hate it. It is quite bland and it is also very tricky to use. Either I slice an avocado too ripe or too raw. Raw avocados are so bitter in taste and the too ripe ones get wasted. It is really an art to master. Somehow I ended up slicing an avocado at the perfect stage, but didn’t want to eat it.
That is the moment I came up with this idea. Why not blend it with Milk Kefir (click on name for recipe) and see how it tastes? So on that day, I blended both the ingredients, added salt to taste and tried it and I liked it. I wouldn’t say that I loved it but it was ok. Not too bad, not too bland and the kefir masked the avocado’s flavour also. I gave a sip to my daughter and she ran away miles. So I kept the remaining portion in fridge and had it the next day. But to be frank, I have stopped buying avocados. I can live without them and for cravings I either have a 90% lindt or a guava which are more than enough. This one is for those who hate avocados and have to have it as part of the diet. Try it, I am sure you will make it again instead of that bland avocado salad.

Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist or a dietitian. The recipes and ideas I share are the part of vegetarian paleo diet I have been following. I wouldn’t say that this is authentic paleo as paleo consists of meat and very less milk. This one is for those vegetarians who don’t even consume eggs.
Take a look at my Vegetarian Paleo Recipes for an idea of what to cook for the diet.
