Dr La Puma opening an avocado for guacamole

The trio of top recipes on feature three nutritional super foods in avocados, salmon, and lentils. Discover below some of the health benefits of each and then check out the recipes. I hope you’ll enjoy them all!

The Only Guacamole You’ll Ever Need

A culinary superfood, avocados provide up to 20 nutrients including vitamins K, C and E, as well as folate, magnesium, zinc, and potassium. In fact, they actually have more potassium than bananas.

Unlike most fruits, avocado is low in carbohydrates and high in a healthy fat called oleic acid. Like olive oil, oleic acid has been linked to health benefits such as reducing inflammation, protecting cells against cancer, and reducing cholesterol. This amazing fruit also improves digestive health and helps your body absorb other nutrients.

Poached Salmon with Sautéed Kale and Cherry Tomatoes

Salmon is an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, long-chain polyunsaturated fats that have been associated with a long list of health benefits. EPA and DHA have been shown to help lower inflammation, decrease blood pressure, and improve arterial health, which can reduce risk of heart disease.

Curried Lentil Soup

Naturally gluten-free, lentils are rich in dietary fiber, protein, calcium, potassium, zinc, and iron. They help lower cholesterol and are a great addition to the diet especially for people diagnosed with blood glucose disorders.

Prior to the use of pharmaceutical medicines, lentils were used to treat diabetic conditions. When included with a meal, the high fiber content helps prevent blood glucose from rising rapidly after eating. Although calorie dense (230 cal/ one cup serving), lentils are low in fat and very filling – you won’t be hungry after a lentil meal!
