Superfood Snacks

Since I received the wonderful Superfoods tutorial. from Meghan Telpner, I've been trying to incorporate as many superfoods as possible into our diet.
The other night, I made some snacks for us to nibble on with a glass of wine and decided to make them again tonight as we enjoyed them so much.  The may look a little 'interesting', but they really do taste yummy :-)
Here's what I did...

Took a couple of ripe avocadoes

 Scooped the flesh into a bowl

 Juiced half a lemon

 Added the juice and 2 minced garlic cloves

 Added some cayenne pepper

 Some freshly ground black pepper and Celtic sea salt

Mixed it all around until everything was incorporated and the avocado was mashed
Added a nice big spoonful of spirulina powder

 Mixed it all around (Perry says it looks like baby poop )

 Toasted some sesame seeds

 Filled some celery sticks with the avocado mixture and chopped them into bite-sized pieces

 Topped some with chia seeds

 Some with toasted sesame seeds

 And the rest with shelled hemp seeds



  1. WOW! That is indeed a superfood fiesta!!!
    Nice work!

  2. Thank you kitchenoperas! I have been having so much fun playing around with superfoods lately. I'll be sure to post any more recipes I come up with. Thank you for the comment :-)
