Ingredients for mediterranean avocado
- 1-2 ripe avocados
- dash of lemon juice
- 10 sun-dried tomatoes, pepper, salt
- tablespoon of dried or a handful of fresh Italian herbs
- pinch of ground ginger
- dash of olive oil, Hermanos Catalan
- Amanprana Orac Botanico mix mild
Preparation of mediterranean avocadoPeel and remove the stone from the avocados. Cut them into pieces and mash them into a mousse with a fork. Sprinkle a little lemon juice over the mousse to prevent the fruit going brown (oxidation). Always prepare avocados right before you need them otherwise they will discolour slightly, despite the lemon juice. Then add the ingredients from one of the recipes mentioned overleaf.
Tip from Rineke:
Regular consumption of avocado is particularly beneficial for those who suffer from constipation. The addition of a pinch of ginger makes it a tried-and-tested method of ‘educating’ the intestines. Recipe from the cookbook “Weten van (h)eerlijk eten” (Knowing how to eat well) by R.Dijkinga, orthomolecular therapist and naturopath
Rineke Dijkinga is specialist in orthomolecular medicine and naturotherapy and also knows an extraordinary amount about nutrition. She is firmly convinced of the beneficial effects of (organic) foods and believes that herbs and spices play a major role in our energy levels, our mood and our weight. To her, delicious food are one and the same thing. Here at Amanprana we have had the opportunity to create and collect various recipes together with Rineke Dijkinga, author of "Alles draait om je hormone" (It's All About Your Hormones), "Weten van (h)eerlijk eten 1 & 2" (What You Need to Know About Fair Food) and Weetjes over (h)eerlijk eten (Fair Food, the Facts). Her main aims are to highlight how important herbs and spices are, that we should opt for organic food and that we should focus on the preventative in prevention.
