Avocado Shrimp Salsa – Yummy

I made this last night and was delicious. My husband does not like cucumber so I used red pepper (capsican) instead of the cucumber. I did get a little carried away with the coriander (cilantro) but for me it was perfect. A great low calorie snack or have as a salad with your meal or just on its own.

Great recipe

Tonights Dinner?

What a simple easy, tasty, delicious Pasta. Got to Love it. You know this is a healthy quick meal for those who live on their own. No messing around. Avocado being of course one of my favorite fruits. Actually for a little did you know from the University of California:-

“You might be inclined to call it a vegetable, thanks to its green hue and savory taste, but the avocado is technically a fruit, and even more specifically, a single-seeded berry. A fruit is “the matured ovary of a flower,” according to University of California Agriculture & Natural Resources”.

Feeling Down In The Dumps – 7 Foods to lift that Mood

avocado-on-a-wooden-table

  • Avocado – One of my very favorite foods. I have at least 1 to 1/2 an avocado a day. It helps protect the heart, aids with digestion and is also a natural hormone balancer. It ensures your brain is making the right chemicals to feel great. So pop some on your toast in the morning it might help with road rage on the way to work as in most places the traffic is crazy

unknown

  • Grapes – Great take along snack. They are packed with anti Oxidants.  Flavonoids being one of them which has been found to affect moods in a positive way. Great also for kids lunches and yours.

  • Oysters – Best known as an aphrodisiac which would make most happy. With oysters of course its all about the benefits from Zinc and anti – inflammarory properties. Zinc is known as a pick me up which most of us lack, but oysters also have a good supply of selenium which helps protect us from stress. So eat up the oysters when you can.

unknown-1

  • Raw nuts – Also another form of take along snack.  Full of serotonin, a feel-good chemical which is much needed when you’re depressed. I love almonds and Brazil, macadamia’s and cashews, of course beware of how many you eat because they are full of fat and calories. Small handful is enough. If you are eating them in the car on the way to work I suggest you take a toothbrush as they are inclined to stick around your teeth. Just saying because there  is nothing worse than trying to have a conversation with someone with nuts around their teeth.

  •  Salmon – Natural wild caught Salmon is what I am having for dinner tonight. Love it. Great for your brain health and moods. It’s a lean protein that contains double your recommended value of vitamin B12. B12 is crucial for  combatting depression.  Salmon also packs a punch of mood-stabilizing essential fatty acids. The good fats are essential for the functioning of a healthy brain.

unknown-2

  • Sesame seeds – This ancient crop has been keeping happy levels up for thousands of years. Its benefits stem from tyrosine. This amino acid boosts the brain’s dopamine levels. I love it in my salad and also sprinkled on my toast in the morning on top of the avocado. Very yummy I might add.

strawberry1

  •  Strawberries – Another mood saving breakfast, for me anyway not on toast but great with Yogurt or in a yogurt drink blended. Rich in an array of vitamins and nutrients like vitamins A and C and manganese. Rich in an array of vitamins and nutrients like vitamins A and C and manganese. Who doesn’t like strawberries, no one I expect. Kids normally love them  and its a great lunch snack for them.
